Mission & Vision


As a growth-mindset community of learners, we instill in our staff, students and parents the belief that everyone can become smarter, can learn how to complete difficult tasks, solve complex real-world problems, and grow their own intelligence in order to be able to compete in a rapidly changing global economy.

Our mission is to empower our students to make successful choices that will positively impact their lives in high school, college, careers and beyond. Our mission is to teach students that hard work is the key to achievement, and that all students are capable of success, no exceptions.


The Frances E. Carter School, PS/IS 384, is a 3K- 8th grade public school that affords all of our students the opportunity to achieve academic excellence and personal growth through a rigorous, collaborative, safe and loving educational environment.
