The mission of Brian Piccolo Middle School 53 is to foster a community of excellence by promoting achievement in academic and character education in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Based on a foundation of inquiry and accountability, our students will develop the skills necessary to excel through project-based learning that will facilitate independent thinking and self-motivation.

Our students will be prepared for high-school and gain exposure to college and career readiness through an unwavering emphasis on scholarship, civic responsibility, personal accountability, and creativity.  Every child, every day will be encouraged to push their personal definition of success to help them reach their highest potential.


Our vision is to create for all children a safe, nurturing, educational environment that supports the development of student self-esteem and belief in one’s own ability to achieve and be successful. The structure of our school supports our vision because MS 53 prepares students to be productive citizens and face the challenges of modern society.
