From PS1 Pluralistic School

Our name, PS1 Pluralistic School, echoes the United States’ motto, E pluribus unum: Out of many, one. The words convey the complex, ongoing, optimistic work of creating and sustaining a truly democratic society. That’s the founding and enduring purpose of PS1—and what makes us unique.

We believe that empathetic, innovative, collaborative thinkers can and must build a better world for all. And the best time to cultivate this vital mindset is in children’s earliest years. From the first day of kindergarten through 6th grade, we help students understand themselves as individuals and as members of larger communities.

We’ve designed our curriculum, schedule, and even our physical campus to inspire both productive cooperation and individual reflection. As students gradually expand their comfort zones—from small-group projects to their classroom, school, neighborhood, and eventually the wider world—each learns how and why to make positive change at every level.

The Studio at PS1

academic spotlight

The Studio is an innovative maker space where students engage in hands on learning. Students learn to safely use technology, wood working tools, sewing machines, laser-cutting, and 3-D printing to bring their ideas to life. We emphasize the academic areas of STEAM as students ask, design, build, create, and test ideas while learning the foundation of design thinking and engineering.
