Respect For All

What is Respect for All?

The NYC Department of Education is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying, sexual harassment, and discrimination on account of actual or perceived race, color, age, creed, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship/immigration status, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, or weight.

The NYCDOE Respect for All (RFA) program was launched to build the capacity of staff and students to actively promote a community of inclusion in each of our schools. The importance of promoting respect for diversity in our daily practice is vital to creating and sustaining an inclusive school climate and culture in each of our schools so that all students feel valued, supported and safe.


MS 74 has proudly been a Respect for All School since 2013

Respect for All Oath

“A Champion of Respect" Oath

I’m valuable.

 I will take care of myself, my school and my community;

I  pledge to respect myself and at all times have the best interest of others in mind.

I will give my teachers and peers the respect and gratitude which is their due;

I will not bully, and will not be a bystander ; instead I will forever stand up for the victims of bullying.
