THE WEEK

 

Week of January 10, 2022

This week's photos feature class V50 at our 498 site! Students Miles, Anthony and Dane from class V50 are working hard and having fun with STEM! They each built a robot using the LEGO Education kit and programmed their movements using the WeDo2.0 app on the iPad. There are currently two different STEM programs at P596X. Our computer science program introduces our students to Coding, Digital Citizenship, and Lego Robotics.

WELCOME

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.
