About P.S. 185

PS 185 Early Childhood Discovery and Design Magnet School currently serves 240 bright and eager learners in grades Pre-K - 2.  We specialize in leveraging the enormous capacity for learning that typically characterizes the early childhood years.  At PS 185 we nurture the natural talents and proclivities of our students while immersing them in the skills, habits and knowledge that will help them become lifelong learners and earners. 
In addition to the rigorous standards-based curricula in the core subject areas,  our students receive weekly instruction in vocal music, piano, visual arts and dance as well as monthly character education classes and trips to local sites including museums, theaters and historical landmarks.  We partner with a number of community-based organizations, including Learning Leaders and Children's Aid Society to insure all our students and their families get the full range of services they need to thrive.
