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.

Week of February 15, 2021
This week's photos feature Respect For All Week 2021. In honor of Respect For All Week, P596X and P.S. 178X/153X & 498X “Dressed the Message” together. The goal of the week was to promote the theme of respect by engaging students in meaningful lessons and activities focused on preventing bias-based harassment, intimidation and/or bullying. All students and staff were encouraged to participate by dressing in themed attire each day and enjoying the various activities!
The Respect for all committee also selected literature to coincide with each day’s theme. The students and staff celebrated by taking part in and dressing up for events such as No One Eats Alone, School Spirit Day, Superhero Day, Red and Pink Day and Pajama Day!
