PS1 Olders students showed off their knowledge of the Periodic Table by hosting an event filled with scientific demonstrations, abstract art, and experimentation!
Reasons To Be Proud
At PS1, science is about students learning to observe, record, hypothesize, examine, and experiment to develop their scientific problem-solving skills. Learn more about our hands-on science and design-thinking programs by reading the full blog post written by PS1's Assistant Head for Teaching & Learning, Nancy Harding, PhD.
Students from PS1's community service club, PS Serves, take the lead on their donation drive for local non-profit, The People Concern.

The 2018-2019 school year kicked off with tons of bubbles and cheers! We came together to Celebrate the Many and Build One community - making connections between those who are returning to PS1 and those who are just beginning. Welcome to all!
Congrats to the PS1 Class of 2018! As is tradition, PS1's Graduation ceremony included a speech from the Head of School to each Grad, and a speech from each Grad to the community. The ceremony also featured a commencement address by a PS1 parent, whose 18-year tenure at PS1 is coming to a close (see excerpt below). The event was moving, poignant, witty, wise, and joyful. We thank the families and students of the Class of 2018 and wish them well on their next adventures as they head off to 14 different middle schools!
Students celebrate their passion for STEAM by planning an entire day of designing, engineering, collaborating, and creating.
