P.S. 290 is dedicated to the highest levels of student achievement. Our scholars perform with distinction because of our innovative approach to teaching and learning. Our balanced literacy program includes a comprehensive phonemic awareness and comprehension component. We expect our scholars to compete at an international level; therefore, we use the Math in Focus curriculum, which originated in Singapore, the highest scoring nation on the TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) for the past two decades. At P.S. 290, scholars study Global Connections, which emphasizes the link between the classroom and the international culture around us. Our school is a college readiness school; as a result, our Arts and Sciences course provides scholars with a liberal arts college education approach, where they create, discover, explore, and express their thoughts and ideas, preparing them for elementary school and beyond.
