Developing Thinkers, Leaders, and Problem Solvers

At P.S. 115, we are developing the next generation of thinkers, leaders, and problem solvers. We prepare all of our students for success with New York State and NYCDOE academic standards and testing, but our approach goes far beyond test prep. Our hands-on, student-centered curriculum has been designed to:

  • Develop “21st Century” skills including creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and leadership.
  • Provide opportunities for students to explore their unique talents and interests.
  • Empower students as agents of change and problem solvers in their communities and the world.
  • Give students opportunities to have FUN while they learn!

Academic Support

We offer a full range of Special Education (SPED) services for students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). We also provide academic support for any student struggling to master grade-level standards. Your child’s teachers will work with you to identify your child’s needs and make sure they are getting the help they need to be successful.
