FAQs

I heard you are moving.  Where and when?

The New York City Department of Education, Vornado Realty Trust, and Stellar Management recently extended our lease at 334 Greenwich Street through July 31, 2022.  This is a final lease extension.  PS 150 will relocate to 28-42 Trinity Place beginning with the 2022-2023 school year.

What does it mean that PS 150 is an option school?

Children are assigned to neighborhood public schools based on where they reside.  This is called a school’s catchment area or zone. A school, in turn, must offer a seat to every child in its catchment area. An option school exists as an alternative choice for parents who for whatever reason do not want to send their child to their neighborhood school.

As an option school, PS 150 is not required to offer a seat to every child requesting one.   Once our classes are full we are no longer required to offer seats to additional students.

Are siblings given priority when it comes to offering seats?

We give priority to children living in District 2 who have siblings currently attending PS 150 and whose sibling will be returning to our school the following September.

I don’t live in District 2.  Can my child still attend PS 150?

As a District 2 option school, we must offer a seat to every child in District 2 who wants one before we can accept children who reside outside the district.

Does PS 150 have ICT classes?

Because we have only one class on a grade level, we do not offer integrated co-teaching (ICT) classes. We partake in flexible programming.   Our staff includes a guidance counselor, school psychologist, resource room teacher (SETSS), speech and language teacher, physical therapist, and occupational therapist who work with students with IEPs and/or who are considered “at risk.”  Other specialists are assigned to our school depending on the need.

Is there an after school program at PS 150?

Our after school program is run by Manhattan Youth and is open to all PS 150 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. After school begins at the end of the school day and ends at 5:45. All children must be picked up by 6 pm.
