School Announcements

PS 290-MNS NAMED "REWARD SCHOOL"

We are delighted to announce that the University of the State of NY Education Department has recognized PS 290 Manhattan New School for educational excellence because it has one of the highest achievement levels in the state, coupled with no significant gaps in student achievement.

Thank you to our wonderful administration, teachers and families who together have worked tirelessly to ensure that every child at MNS receives an excellent education.  Your dedication and support has inspired our students to do their best to become avid and accomplished lifelong readers, writers, mathematicians and researchers. We are committed to striving to make MNS a school where every child thrives by learning to be a positive, contributing member of the local, national and global community.  

Congratulations, most of all, to our students, whose consistently high overall academic progress has merited this special recognition for MNS, where joyful learning is celebrated as its own reward.
