The Downside

Too soon to tell

PS 384 was founded in 2019 in response to the building and baby boom in Long Island City. In its first year the school opened classes in a temporary space in Court Square  and took overflow from kindergartners who applied to PS 78, according to a staffer in the office.  

The school website stresses creativity, collaboration and citizenship; photos show young children on field trips, engaged in dramatic play and making collages with scissors, paper and glue. Through a partnership with Studio in a School, children make pinch pots and clay animals. 

A new building in Hunters Point South is slated to open in 2021. All students will move to the new building. Once the school is in its new location it will be given a new zone, the website says. Currently the school is listed as non-zoned. The school will seat 612 students from kindergarten through 5th grade. The building will be air-conditioned and accessible to students with disabilities. An outdoor playground, a library and a "gymnatorium" are part of the plan, according to the LIC Post. 

Founding principal Christine Britton previously served as assistant principal at nearby PS 112. 

Note: The phone number listed in the 2020 Kindergarten Handbook is incorrect. The correct number is: (718) 391-4667. 

ADMISSIONS: Non-zoned. Check school website for updates. (Lydie Raschka, phone call and web reports, Dec. 2019)
