The Louis Armstrong Middle School Mission Statement

The Louis Armstrong Mission Statement


The Mission of the Louis Armstrong Middle School is to bring together a group of culturally diverse children to help them grow academically, emotionally, physically and socially. Our five school goals are: improving literacy and numeracy, fostering caring and ethical citizenship, encouraging substantive parent involvement, practicing the arts in all curriculum areas and growing technologically.



The Louis Armstrong Middle School is a safe nurturing environment where we try to help each and every student reach his/her greatest potential. To this aim, we have both a very rich music program (orchestra, band, and chorus) and art program (portfolio, video, and ceramics.) The school is very up to date with computers, attempts to mix our general population with our instructional support services students as much as possible, and offers regents classes in Math and Science. In this school, we feel that every student is special.
