Share this school
Baychester Academy, also called PS 169, is a safe school where children learn to read music and eventually play in an orchestra. A robotics club is open to 5th grade students.
Opened in a new building in 2009, on a commercial stretch along Boston Road, the school has grown to serve pre-K to 5th grade students. Parents and teachers agree the school sets high expectations, and teachers work well together, according to NYC school surveys. The school is working to create a clear list of goals based on data to improve student performance, which has dipped in recent years, according to the Quality Review.
