PS K721 is a safe and orderly school where students agree that most students treat one another with respect and that bullying does not occur frequently, surveys report.

The school, which serves over 500 students grades 10 to 12, is located in four sites across Brooklyn. The student body mainly consists of learners with developmental disabilities or autism. The attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 86 percent, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP).

According to the Quality Review, the school offers school and community based vocational programs. Some of the school-based worksites include: the Corner Store, the Coffee/Bake Shop, Food Service, Cosmetology, Print/Adaptive Design, and Maintenance.
