Our mission is to create a peaceful nurturing atmosphere where all stake holders are committed to working collaboratively and respectfully to ensure the academic excellence of all scholars.

We will actively engage scholars in curricular that provokes critical thinking. We will actively engage scholars in activities that foster a sense of community and awareness of the world around them. 

Our Vision is to graduate scholars that aspire to achieve excellence in all that they do. Our scholars will think critically, have a passion for learning, and a desire to make positive change in the community and the world around them. 

Welcome to PS 38 at the Roberto Clemente Learning Complex in Manhattan. We are extremely proud of our committed, experienced staff and our enthusiastic learners. As the demands and complexities of teaching children increases, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential. At PS 38 we believe that all of us - school staff, teachers, administrators and parents- must work together as a family to ensure success for all our scholars. We believe it is everyone's responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically and emotionally successful and responsible citizens. 

I look forward to meeting parents and children that enter our doors. 

Warm regards, 

Carlina Santos-Barton

Principal, PS 38
