About PS 242

We all have greatness within us and every child has limitless potential that must be nurtured.  Members of the Young Diplomats Magnet Academy will draw this potential out of every scholar and continuously strive for success.  As a result, each scholar will be equipped with the tools to become responsible citizens in a changing world.  Young Diplomats Magnet Academy is dedicated to providing all students with a caring, supportive, and rigorous inquiry-based learning environment.  Young Diplomats Magnet Academy is a school in which all students are encouraged to be open-minded towards acquiring a global perspective.  Together we will target student strengths and interests as a motivational tool to be reflective risk-takers.  Students of different abilities, interests or learning needs will experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop and present concepts as effective communicators.  The entire school community is committed to helping develop knowledgeable, balanced and principled thinkers, skills needed to become socially responsible members of a diverse society.
