PS1 - Pluralistic School One

Youth Orchestra Classes Continue!

At PS1, we recognize that every child is unique, so we built a school that nurtures individual talents and learning styles. That's how children become the best versions of themselves, in a school where fitting in is about being yourself.

"It's not how smart a child is; it's how a child is smart."
Joel Pelcyger, Head of School
