About PS 10
PS10 is a public elementary school serving grades K-5 which offers children a high quality, standards-based and inclusive education in a diverse and barrier-free environment. We provide thoughtful and rigorous instruction which enables children to become inquisitive, lifelong learners.
Our dedicated and expertly trained staff strives to help each child reach his/her full potential in literacy, mathematics, science, technology and the arts. We promote critical and analytical thinking that encourages individual and collaborative problem solving. We also set clear expectations based upon a rigorous academic curriculum, which allows students to create authentic work which meets and exceeds the standards.
We honor and model hard work, cooperation, effort, kindness, honesty, responsibility, tolerance and integrity of character, all of which create a vibrant atmosphere for children to grow, flourish and appreciate one another.
What makes us unique?
Our Magnet Grant lives on through not one, but two, state-of-the-art Science Labs as well as our modern wireless Mac computer lab. Using the workshop model, students explore hands on inquiry based learning.
Arts grants through the Empire State Arts Partnership, and LLSN have allowed all students to learn through the arts process and create original opera with professional teaching artists provided By the Metropolitan Opera Guild. Kindergarteners through second graders learn keyboard through the grant, Music and the Brain. In the 2013-2014 year, we have received a grant from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz for auditorium renovation and a grant from Councilwoman Sara Gonzalez for student bathroom renovations.
Students have full access to an excellent visual arts education with our lower grade and upper grade art teachers. Our Kindergarten Academy introduces blossoming minds to technology, science, music, visual and theatrical arts.
All students and their families have access to our prestigious Robin Hood Foundation Library. You will find our library to be one of the best, if not the best library you have ever seen in a community elementary school setting. It offers a warm and ultra modern environment for students to explore their world through the love of books and reading. Our library also has computers for students to research, as well as a state- of- the- art ‘Smart Board’ used to create an interactive computer classroom setting.
