Our Insights

What’s Special

Spanish dual-language instruction

The Downside

Too soon to tell

IS 584 is a new middle school that aims to give students a lot of enrichment in the sciences and arts as well as Spanish dual-language instruction.

Opened in 2017, the school replaces JHS 162, which was closed because of low performance. IS 584 shares a building with Hostos-Lincoln Academy of Science and University Prep Charter High School.

Instruction emphasizes STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and includes hands-on activities, field trips, projects, experiments and presentations, according to the school’s website.

All students have access to Chromebook computers to use during the day. Enrichment programs and academic help are provided after-school and during the summer.

ADMISSIONS: Open to Bronx students and residents.(Laura Zingmond, web reports, November 2017; photo from school website)
