PS 295 is a small elementary school nestled between the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace. The school welcomes students with special needs with a Collaborative Team Teaching (CTT) class on every grade.
PS 295 is a community that embraces diversity by nurturing strengths and talents to educate the whole child socially, academically, culturally and artistically through differentiation in all facets of learning. In recognizing that all children learn in different ways, we believe that an arts integrated curriculum cultivates a more meaningful discovery of self, enhances prior knowledge, supports content and language development and encourages a strong respect and appreciation for the arts. Strengthened by the commitment of our parent community, we value their participation and are dedicated to developing a strong partnership between home and school. Through collaboration and communication each member feels supported and encouraged to take risks, share ideas and become an active participant in their own learning. Our strong professional development program provides ongoing learning and leadership opportunities for all members, while offering students an exemplar for becoming lifelong learners and leaders of the future.
PS 295 Studio School of Arts and Culture was founded in 1994 (Became a Magnet School dedicated to the arts in 2001)
