P.S. 228 Early Childhood Magnet School of the Arts in East Elmhurst is a neighborhood school serving grades Pre-K through 2. This 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, children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. They have lots of time to talk and ask questions. The principal has been leading this school since 2000.
This school prioritizes children who live in the school zone, but anyone is welcome to apply. Type your address into our school search to see your zoned school.
