Watch and listen as a PS1 alumnus shares the impact of his pluralistic elementary school experience...


PS1 Pluralistic School alumni often become leaders in their middle school settings. They articulate what they think and feel, show a strong sense of self and compassion for others, and know themselves as learners. The high placement ratio of our graduates into independent secondary schools and their success at the private or public school of their choice stems directly from the well-rounded and rich elementary education which PS1 provides. Below is a list of the wide range of middle schools our students have attended in recent years.
