The Hanson Place Seventh-day Adventist School opened its doors in September 1964 with a principal, four staff members and 50 students. In September of 1974, the school moved to its present location at 38 Lafayette Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. The school has been served by approximately 15 principals over its 52-year history and Ms. Pauline Evans is the current principal. Nestled in a caring and nurturing environment, the school caters to the mental, physical, spiritual and social needs of the students.
The Hanson Place S.D.A. School has been established to provide a Christian education for students in grades Pre-K-8. The school recognizes its responsibility in helping to sharpen the mental, physical and spiritual powers of its students. It endeavors to assist in developing moral and spiritual characters based on Biblical principles. Central to its philosophy is a belief in God as the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and recognition of man as a child of God and steward of this world. The Education program is predicated on the belief that each student is unique and of inestimable value, and on the importance of the development of the whole person. Students are educated to accept service as a way of life, to be sensitive to the needs of people in the home, society and to become active members in the Church and to be citizens of the world to come.
Hanson Place SDA School will provide high quality child-centered education in a nurturing Christian environment. We will engage students in authentic and relevant learning experiences and challenge them to reach their ultimate potential and to become valuable contributing members of society.
