At the heart of all that we do are our core values: Vision, Opportunity, Independence, Collaboration, and Expression, or VOICE.  VOICE is reflected in all instructional and social/emotional curricula, pedagogical models, and everyday interactions between and among students, staff, and families.  It is VOICE that has enabled all members of the PS 9 community to set purposeful goals and work together to achieve them.  Our core values embody who we are now and will shape us as we move towards full capacity.
