The Downside

Closed for poor performance.

PS 260 was closed in June 2014 after years of poor performance. In September 2011,The Fresh Creek School, a new zoned elementary school, opened in the building. Fresh Creek serves the same area as PS 260.

In 2010, only 22 percent of PS 260 students were on grade level in English language arts (ELA), and only 32 percent were on grade level in math. Parents and community members expressed concerns about a lack of communication between the school and families as well as problems with classroom management and discipline. In February 2011 the Panel for Education Policy approved the DOEs proposal tophase out and replacethe school due to persistently low performance and an inability to turn around.(June 2014, web reports)
