THE WEEK

 

Week of September 19, 2022

This week's photos feature our parent meet and greet on Friday, September 16, 2022. Parents and guardians were recently invited into their child's classroom to meet their child's teacher and classroom staff. 

Parents also had the opportunity to participate in various classroom activities with their child and experience "A Day in the Life at P596X!" Parents who could not attend in-person also attended virtually on Google Classroom. 

Parents, students and staff all enjoyed taking part in this beginning of the year event. We look forward to hosting similar monthly events in the near future!

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
