THE WEEK

 

Week of January 16, 2023

This week's photo features our recent partnership with Magnify Autism. It is with great pleasure that we announce that our school has received a very generous donation of sensory items from Magnify Autism and the New York Yankees. This generous donation will allow for a variety of sensory items to be given to all classrooms at 596X.

A big thank you to Magnify Autism and the New York Yankees. It was a pleasure working with both organizations.

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
