THE WEEK

 

Week of November 14, 2022

This week's photos feature class V05 at our 178 site. Recently, the students of class V05 were able to visit Queens Farm. During their visit, the students picked pumpkins in the pumpkin patch, went on a scavenger hunt and took a hayride. The students went through a corn maze and were able to meet some of the farm animals. The students and staff enjoyed taking part in these fun and educational activities.

 

Queens Farm is a historic farm located on 47 acres of the neighborhoods of Floral Park and Glen Oaks in Queens. The farm occupies the city's largest remaining tract of undisturbed farmland. The site features restored farm buildings from three different centuries, a greenhouse, planting fields, livestock, and various examples of vintage farm equipment.

WELCOME

Welcome to P.S. 596X! We are a district 75 New York City Public School serving students on the autism spectrum and other special needs from Pre-K through age 11 in three co-located sites: 11X178, 11X153 and 11X498.

 

Through this website, you will be able to step into our classrooms and hallways to get an idea of the wide variety of creative programs and practices in which students participate on a daily basis.

Our commitment is to provide the highest quality, state of the art instructional programs to our students, and to offer parents workshops and activities to equip themselves with the skills to best help their child. Through hands-on learning and fun-filled opportunities, our students make tremendous gains in social skills, language, and academics.

John Siracuse, Principal
