Our school is comprised of two distinct academies. Each academy offers our students an opportunity to explore a particular course of study.
Block Room Program
Grades: Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1, & 2
In our brand new Block Room, children in grades pre-k, k, 1 & 2, are given time and space to investigate and explore the world of building, in a classroom devoted solely to blocks. Block building gives the children at PS 38 an entry into the world of mathematics, an opportunity to be creative and a chance to work together to build social skills and self-confidence. Block building is integrated into our social studies curriculum in these early grades. Second graders build bridges and imagine what New York City looked like at the time of Peter Stuyvesant. Kindergarten and firstgrade and pre-k build communities and freely explore their own personal interests. At PS 38 we are excited about the challenges that our new Block Room offers our children.
