Thank you for visiting the Dr. Michael Conti School (PS5) website! Located in a bustling, revitalized area in downtown Jersey City, our school proudly serves as a microcosm of the many cultures, languages, races, and traditions reflecting Jersey City’s rich diversity.

Our mission at the Dr. Michael Conti School is to provide students with an academically rigorous learning environment that develops 21st-century skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, creativity, and innovation. Through Project-Based Learning (PBL), STEAM, and our award-winning Kindness Initiative, PS5 students make a positive impact on their community.

If you would like to learn more about PS5 or tour our building please feel free to reach out to me – Principal John Rivero, or Assistant Principal Albert Padilla.
