About P.S. 10K
Welcome to PS10 Brooklyn!
We are public elementary school serving students in grades K-5 in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. We are proud to be a place where all children can grow, learn, and thrive.
We are a neighborhood school…but we are far from ordinary! Here’s what makes us different:
- A strong focus on math, science, arts, and design, with special facilities and unique enrichment activities that support and extend learning.
- A hands-on, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning called Project-Based Learning (PBL) that supports development of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and leadership skills.
- An inclusive, barrier-free environment with plenty of supports to help children with physical, emotional, learning, or language differences succeed.
- A proud tradition of active family involvement and a strong PTA that supports our academic, enrichment, and intervention programs.
- Shared space with the K280 Pre-K program.
