Extracurricular ActivitiesAt PS104, we encourage learning through other pathways of education. Besides, reading a textbook; students can learn an incredible amount from their peers through extracurricular activities. Students learn to compromise and work in a group to reach the same goal together. They meet and interact with peers that may not be within their close group of friends or in their grade. Our extracurricular activities help to enhance these social skills and teach lessons not learned in classrooms or text books.
