PS 189 is one of four District 6 schools awarded a Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) grant. As the Magnet School of Inquiry and Expression, PS 189's curricula will focus on actively engaging students in project-based learning experiences that support important 21st century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
Students will engage in real-world scenarios where they apply knowledge to different social justice issues such as human rights, equity, and global citizenship using STEM based-activities. We look forward to providing our students the opportunity to participate in after-school enrichment programs in areas such as coding, video production, multimedia arts and robotics that will support hands-on student learning.
We are very proud of the many partnerships and services we provide to support the whole child and address the complex process of raising physically, socially, emotionally, and academically successful children. Every partnership and collaboration the school engages in is initiated with the idea of developing skills that will improve student outcomes, preparing our student for success in school and career. In order to provide our students with a strong foundation in the arts, support self-esteem and raise awareness about important health topics, our students participate in various programs.
