Manhattan New School, P.S. 290, is a true community of learners as evidenced by our rigorous academics and the dynamic relationship between students, teachers, administrators, staff and families. The essence of our philosophy is to encourage a child’s natural curiosity, to develop a commitment to lifelong learning and to promote social responsibility as global citizens. This climate of academic dedication, respect and understanding contributes to the vibrant learning community that is our school. Classrooms are literate environments with an abundance of books that support the development and love of reading, writing, questioning and the sharing of ideas. The richness of our curriculum in social studies, science, the arts and technology, further opens doors into literacy and creates a foundation for a lifetime of critical thinking. MNS students learn mathematical concepts and number methods that enable them to become true problem solvers. They can speak clearly and descriptively as they reason quantitatively. Our students learn to think of themselves as readers, writers, mathematicians and researchers. We continue to welcome educators from near and far, to share our practice and help enrich our educational communities. The experience at MNS provides a foundation, preparing students to take their place as contributing citizens of the world.

Have a wonderful summer!!
The First Day of School is Thursday, September 8th.
Amazon Supply Lists are up! Click here for links to the Teacher Wish Lists for 2016-17 School Year
Please purchase from the lists as soon as possible. We need these school supplies delivered to our building by the beginning of August so that our custodial staff will have time to deliver the boxes to the proper classrooms before school starts. Please purchase the items marked high priority first because these are the items every student must have to start the year. Clicking on the links from this page will allow a portion of each purchase to be donated to the MNS PTA Amazon Rewards Program.
