Principal's Message

Welcome to Academy Street Elementary School, where children are encouraged to explore new horizons as they learn and grow. Our K-5 elementary school is located just south of Montauk Highway in Bayport, and has approximately 450 students. The Academy Street community is committed to enriching and enhancing the educational experiences for all our students. The partnership among students, faculty, staff and parents ensures that all members of the learning community are actively engaged in the educational process.

Academy Street Elementary School is dedicated to creating a safe, caring, and nurturing school environment that teaches students the skills necessary to become independent thinkers and learners. Our curriculum is designed to prepare our students for the challenging programs they will experience as they journey through the educational system. We implement a curriculum at each grade level that supports the appropriate developmental process and allows students to progress at their own pace. Equally important to academic excellence, is a strong emphasis on citizenship and character development. Respect is the core value of the skills that we encourage on a daily basis; respect for one another, for ourselves, for the school community and for the world around us.

Our collaborative involvement with parents is an integral part of the success of Academy Street School and its programs. We have a dedicated and active Parent Teacher Association that provides a wide variety of programs and events for our students. Many of our assemblies are brought to us by the Arts and Education committee of the PTA. They also sponsor our Family Fun Nights and enrichment programs. All parents are strongly encouraged and welcome to participate in the many activities that the school and PTA provide for your children.

It is my hope that all students at Academy Street Elementary School will enjoy their years here and treasure this time of social and academic growth. If we can help students to recognize their unique talents, then we can prepare them for a limitless future.
