Queens High School for Information Research and Technology (QIRT) offers a small, student-centered learning community committed to providing a challenging academic program for students of diverse backgrounds, achievement levels and interests. The Queens Library and our other partners will challenge students to use various technological
tools to expand their intellect and talents through scientific research, field-based learning, web-based communication and problem-solving projects. Our goal is for each student to acquire the ability to access, interpret and use information in an effort to communicate effectively.
