Fifty-Third Street School is committed to our vision: collaborating with parents, staff and the community to ensure that every child is educated by differentiating instruction based on the rigorous Common Core State Standards. As one of 10 MPS GE Foundation Demonstration Schools, we receive additional support to use innovative strategies to make that a reality. We will consistently utilize data to design appropriate instruction and assessments that provide each student with the tools necessary to achieve a high level of proficiency and advanced status while preparing them for high school, college, and ultimately, a career, without remediation. We are committed to the goal of working to make certain that every student becomes a proficient or advanced reader, writer, communicator and problem solver across all content areas. We offer programs designed to meet a wide range of educational needs. Continual academic progress is expected as we educate all children to become productive, efficient, responsible citizens. Students are taught to exhibit positive behaviors by demonstrating strength of character in attitude and behavior.
