our Mission

We, at Public School # 8, believe in our children's future. We are committed to but one goal: 


WHAT we plan to do

Our goal is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families, teachers, administrators and communities to advocate for all children.

To do this we need to:

  • promote the welfare of children and youth in school and community;
  • host fundraisers, coordinate volunteers;
  • support and facilitate for school events;
  • support and encourage our teachers and administration;
  • and bring parents and teachers may closer together to cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth;

There are many ways to help out like serving, volunteering, joining and giving. Please contact us at for volunteer opportunities.

The Jersey City PS8 PTA is a non-profit organization.


Every donation we receive goes toward providing better and more services to our school so we can see all the children at PS8 reach their potential.
