The Downside

Little information available

PS M226 is a safe school where students agree that bullying does not happen frequently, surveys say.

The school, which serves more than 250 students in Pre-K through 12th grade, is located in eight sites across Manhattan. The student body mainly consists of learners with autism or intellectual disabilities. The attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 88.9 percent, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP).

The CEP states that the arts play a significant role in the schools program. In fact, in 2015-2016 school year, the school received grants to develop a theater program.

ADMISSIONS: Citywide. PS M226 is part of District 75, a network of 69 schools dedicated to New York Citys students with disabilities who require increased attention.
