Our Insights

What’s Special

Music program

The Downside

Attendance is low

PS 107 serves 3-year-olds (3-k) through 5th grade students and has a nice music program. Students may study recorder or keyboard, and sing in a chorus. A group called Harmony Project offers flute, clarinet, trumpet and percussion lessons for select students after school. 

Grades 4 and 5 participate in three clubs per year, choosing from art, music, gym and science, according to the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP). Other activities include chess, Double Dutch, soccer and computer club.

Test scores on state math and reading tests have a ways to go but are improving. Children make progress even if their skills are below average in reading and math, the city’s School Performance Dashboard shows. Students study math for two periods a day: in one, they work in small groups on skills they need to practice most. Reading and writing lessons include phonics and grammar skills, plus time to read and write for fun on topics they choose.

The school has a nice tone, NYC School Surveys show. All children take part in lessons that focus on kindness and respect. The school’s book of the month is always on themes such as feelings and friendship.

Attendance is very low: almost half the students miss at least a month of school. Many students face challenges. More than one-third have disabilities. Some students live in homeless shelters or in foster care. Two social workers, a psychologist and a guidance counselor are on staff to assist them, according to the budget summary. 

PS 107 offers programs after school. 

SPECIAL EDUCATION: The school has small “self contained” classes on every grade, as well as Integrated Co-Teaching classrooms, in which a general education and a special education teacher jointly provide instruction to a class that has students with and without disabilities. An adaptive physical education teacher makes adjustments so students with disabilities can join activities during gym class.  

ADMISSIONS: Zoned neighborhood school. (Lydie Raschka, web reports, April 2020)
