Mission Statement 

At the Preparatory Academy for Writers, we are focused on helping our students to both set and meet very high academic and behavioral expectations. We use an instructional model that focuses on student-centered learning as well as peer and self-assessment. Our staff is highly dedicated to our students and supports every child both emotionally and educationally.  We are always innovating, improving ourselves constantly as we strive to be the best school in New York City.
