Ms. Maria Vera-Drucker, Principal
Welcome from our School Principal
Welcome to the P.S. 376 web site! If you are new to our school or visiting our site, we hope you enjoy learning about our school community.
I am extremely honored to be the principal of PS 376, The Felisa Rincon de Guatier School- Gifted & Talented Program and School of Technology. Every year, I am grateful to be part of a strong school community that consist of dedicated, eager and highly effective teachers and staff that nurture the love of learning. Our school is exceptional! For the past two years, we have been recognized by the New York City Department of Education as a Showcase School with exemplary promising practices.
How do we do it? We simply believe children learn best by doing through inquiry. Our school I~STEAM curricula foster creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication through project based learning and technology. Our classrooms are richly designed to support 21st century learning- from our STEAM Lab to the Environmental Design Lab--the children’s minds are ignited daily. As I walk through the corridors, children are discussing ideas, using their imagination, investigating, wondering, sketching and experiencing powerful learning. We take great pride on ensuring that our school is an inviting place to learn and we lay a strong foundation for an insatiable passion for this learning.
As the Principal, I will do my best to continue to introduce the newest progressive ideas and programs that are geared towards taking our school into the 21st century. We know the world around us is changing. We will continue to keep our traditional values that have made our school a successful learning environment, always striving to foster collaborative positive relationships with our parents.
Thank you for visiting our school’s web site. Your child’s educational experience is very important to our staff and we will do our best to ensure quality instruction. Have a great school year!
Maria Vera-Drucker, Principal
