P.S. 277 in Mott Haven is a school serving grades 3-K through 5. This school is in its own building.
There is a dual-language program available in Spanish which offers instruction in both English and the target language, and is designed to make children fluent in both. It requires a separate application process. Some seats in this program may be reserved for children who speak Spanish but English speaking children are welcome to apply. The Pre-K has lots of activities for children to explore art, nature, music, dramatic play and more, which are meant to develop a range of skills and promote a child's acceptance of diversity. Teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, mutual respect and promote positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. The principal has been leading this school since 2016.
This school prioritizes children who live in District 7, but anyone is welcome to apply. To see if your address is in the district for this school please use our school search. For more information about school enrollment and advice on how to find a program, please visit our New to NYC page .
