Welcome to P.S. 189M: The Magnet School of Inquiry and Expression, where success for every child is the only option! We are a 3K-5 magnet school in the Washington Heights neighborhood of upper Manhattan with a proud 100-year history in our community. Music, arts and performance have been an important part of our identity for decades. Our magnet grant has enabled us to build on that history with exciting new programs and partnerships to help all students explore and develop their interests and learn through creative expression.

We strive to create a positive, safe learning environment that meets the social and emotional needs of every student. That starts with character education and behavioral programs that model, communicate and reinforce clear expectations for behaviors in and out of the classroom. Our staff
and students uphold these values:

  • Strive for success

  • Treat others with respect

  • Act responsibly

  • Respect the environment

  • Show self-control
