The mission of John G. Prendergast School is to establish a nurturing and challenging learning environment where the school, family, and community form a partnership to ensure each student can reach his or her maximum potential. As a result, all students will become confident lifelong learners and contributing members of a diverse society.

John G. Prendergast School is the home of over 675 K-6 scholars. Mrs. Nimons, Principal and Mr. Coppola, Assistant Principal, work relentlessly with a staff of over 140 to support, challenge, motivate and inspire students as they acquire the skills necessary to be life-long learners and leaders.  We encourage parent participation and feedback and encourage you to be active in school functions and activities.

In order to build strong parent and community relationships, to accomplish the goals of our school improvement plan and to maximize the learning of all our students, Mrs. Nimons, Mr. Coppola and the staff have an “open door” policy. We invite parents and community members to have “face to face” conversations with administrators and staff in order to be informed of the goals of the school, the accomplishments of our learning community and to exchange ideas.
