The Downside

Little information available

The Mickey Mantle School is a safe and orderly school where students treat one another with respect and bullying is rare, according to school surveys.

The school, which serves around 400 students, is located in six sites throughout Manhattan. Mainly, the student body consists of learners that are categorized as having multiple disabilities, autism, emotional/behavioral difficulties and/or significant language and communication disorders. According to the Comprehensive Education Plan, the attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 86.4 percent.

The school aims to support both academic and social/emotional growth. The 2015 Quality Review explains that one unique means through which they accomplish this is through use of the schools real functioning 1940s diner, Route 66. Staff members have crafted a multidisciplinary program incorporating literacy, math, health/science, social studies and art grounded in running the diner. More specifically, students learn about food preparation, food cost, sanitation, controlling waste, customer service skills and how to make a profit. [photo by Lydie Raschka]
