Share this school
Peninsula Preparatory Academy Charter School is a charter school in Far Rockaway, serving grades Pre-K through 5.
Students at this school generally perform well on test scores, as compared to other schools in the city. The Pre-K has lots of activities for children to explore art, nature, music, dramatic play and more, which are meant to develop a range of skills and promote a child's acceptance of diversity . Teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, and promote mutual respect and positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks.
Charter schools are tuition-free schools that operate independently of the city Department of Education, and because of this have a lot of leeway over things like discipline codes, school year/day lengths and teaching philosophies. Charter schools can range from super traditional and strict to super progressive with lots of student freedom. Be sure to ask questions when you visit. Most give priority to children who live in the school district in which the school is located and each school runs its own lottery and enrollment process. Check the school's own website for the application and due date listed under "contact" on this page.
