Our Insights

P.S. 238 Anne Sullivan in Sheepshead Bay is a neighborhood school serving grades Pre-K through 8. The school is in its own building.

There is a dual-language program available in Spanish which offers instruction in both English and the target language, and is designed to make children fluent in both. It requires a separate application process. Some seats in this program may be reserved for children who speak Spanish but English speaking children are welcome to apply. In the Pre-K classes, teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, mutual respect and promote positive social interactions. The principal has been leading this school since 2004.

This school prioritizes children who live in the school zone, but anyone is welcome to apply. To see if your address is zoned for this school please use our school search.
