Welcome to P.S. 596X! We are a New York City Public School serving students on the autism spectrum and other special needs from Pre-K through age 11.


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.




Please visit our COVID response page. You will find all the critical information about how PS596X is changing the way we operate to reduce the risk of COVID infection.

We are doing everything we can to make sure staff, students, and families are safe.

Please check back regularly, as we will update the information here as conditions change.

PS596X also has important information and resources for you.

Prepare Your Child's iPad for Remote Learning 

For anyone who has a DOE-loaned iPad, we have some important updates for you. It is essential that you take the actions using the link below to ensure your child’s iPad is ready for use for return to school. The first day of school is only a few weeks away, and all students will be working remotely for at least a few days a week. Your child will need their iPad to be ready for learning for the fall. Please note that when the Department of Education has other updates, they will send messages to you and your iPad on Thursdays, and we will let you know about the updates.

Book of the Month

During this year, we have selected various books that link to the curriculum we are using each and every day! Each month, we will plan, create and discover new ways to make our teaching fun and meaningful for our students. Our goal is to build their knowledge and understanding of topics through vocabulary, writing, experiments and discussions! Please read Principal John's letter below to learn more about this program.
