Our Insights

What’s Special

School is working to build more consistency in instruction

The Downside

Attendance is low

The Sheridan Academy for Young Leaders is a small school serving students in grades 3-K to 5. It shares the former PS 90 building with the Family School, which also opened in 2009. 

Students in grades 1 and 2 study dance with Teatro Sea, and all students study art with Studio in a School. The school has its own certified music teachers, according to the Arts in Schools Report. The Quality Review says students are known well by adults in the school, including teachers and guidance staff. 

The school serves many students with disabilities and many who are learning the English language. To help all students reach their potential, teachers are working to build consistency from class to class, and to invite more student participation, according to the Quality Review. During lessons, they check to see if students understand the content; students may also signal when they don’t understand using a colored card system. State test scores have begun to improve.

Attendance is a work-in-progress; more than one-third of the students miss at least a month of school. An attendance team meets weekly to monitor those students who have repeated absences or lateness to school. 

ADMISSIONS: Children in the zone may choose between the Family School and Sheridan Academy. For kindergarten, priority will be given to students who live in the PS 90 school zone. (Lydie Raschka, DOE data, May 2020)
