Portrait of a PS1 Pluralistic School Graduate

The "Portrait of a PS1 Graduate" is the result of a one-and-a-half year research project we performed to determine the salient characteristics of a PS1 graduate.

When your child turns twelve, what can you expect will characterize them as people, friends, students, and colleagues - both personally and interpersonally? Our research garnered the following benefits: our graduates, year in and year out, are Self-Aware; Respectful; Expressive; Inquisitive; Collaborative; Problem-Solver; Connected; Proactive; and Prepared.

"Look at that moon. Potato weather for sure." It is tradition for Olders students at PS1 to perform plays at the end of each school year.

The entire community of students and parents were amazed, astounded, and awestruck at the professionalism and creativity of students' productions on stage and behind the scenes!
