P.S. 115 The James J. Ambrose School in Floral Park is a neighborhood school serving grades Pre-K through 5. This school is in its own building.
This is a school where children who enter with low, middle and high test scores will do well, as compared to other schools in the city. This school offers gifted classes through the Gifted and Talented program, which require a separate admissions process explained here. The Pre-K has lots of activities for children to explore art, nature, music, dramatic play and more, which are meant to develop a range of skills and promote a child's acceptance of diversity. Teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, and promote mutual respect and positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. The principal has been leading this school since 2015.
