From Pine Street School

Pine Street School is NYC’s first and only International Baccalaureate offering both Mandarin and Spanish dual language immersion starting at age 2 and continuing through Middle School. We are a warm, diverse and vibrant community of families dedicated to engaged global learning with a bold and responsible future orientation. In 2014, we launched near Wall Street, in the heart of the original New York City, with a mission to bring a fresh world perspective to the city’s traditional education landscape. We stand out among peer schools in our focus on digital citizenship, sustainability, community engagement and, most of all, student voice and agency. We proudly welcome families from every walk of life, across New York and worldwide. There are more than 30 countries represented among our students and dozens of languages spoken. Our families come from nearby Tribeca, SoHo, Chelsea, Williamsburg, DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights, and from as far as the Upper West Side, Harlem and Jersey City!

    Years ago, we visited MANY schools before choosing Pine Street! Our son is now a first grade student in the Mandarin/English program and we couldn't be happier. The IB philosophy - a hands on and inquiry based approach to learning - has supported the development of our child's natural sense of curiosity. We do not speak Mandarin at home, but are in awe at how quickly our son and his peers have picked up the language! Beyond the approach and the school's strong academics - we are most impressed with how community oriented the school is! His peers and their families feel like an extension to our own AND the administration and his teachers genuinely make us feel as though they are in our "village."

    In a city with a plethora of excellent schools, Pine Street School has significantly exceeded our expectations.

    Our child is fortunate to have an exceptionally low student-to-teacher ratio (significantly lower than other private schools in the city), so there is almost an individual learning experience.

    The learning itself is clearly very modern and does away with much of the rote learning of more traditional programs. For children like ours, who like to move, this is a big plus.

    Perhaps more important for us than the curriculum, are the intangibles. Firstly, there is a focus on leadership for the students. Secondly, there is a real celebration of cultural differences, partly engendered by the wonderful language immersion courses. Within weeks of our child joining the Mandarin program, they were already singing Mandarin songs at their (non-Mandarin speaking) home. Thirdly, it is a very loving community. We feel genuinely lucky to be part of it.
    I think of my children as global citizens and they must be multilingual, global thinkers with technological skills and committed with the planet. Pine Street School/PSS provides the best education with individualized learning, advance use of STEM and totally future oriented. PSS offers the IB curriculum based in inquiry and project learning and dual language immersion – Spanish or Mandarin. It is a school without walls where NYC is a rich resource of learning and interaction. The school focuses on sustainability, the environment and social projects. Our 6 years old twins are currently in Spanish First Grade and this is our fourth year at PSS. A strong partnership that makes us feel part of a family that shares the same principles, passion and desires for the future. The "Parenting for the Future" forum and book club is a school initiative that helps to look at the future and its impacts on parents and children. As a parent at Pine Street School I strongly recommend the school.
