Academics & Enrichment
Students drive their own learning
In the elementary school at PS/MS 34, our students learn through play. Whether creating astronaut suits out of paper mache for a STEM unit about space, or building “bottle buddies” for a biography unit for Women’s History Month, our students engage in learning through multiple hands-on activities.
The middle school at PS/MS 34 is a lively place! Students are offered various entry points into our curriculum. When learning about the constitution in a Humanities class, they also look at performances about the constitution in Theater class. In a STEM class, students might create “green islands” with the lowest carbon footprint demonstrating their learning in creative and dynamic ways. Additionally, we offer Mandarin, Art, Theater and Physical Education.
