Public School 231
5601 16th Avenue
PS 231K NYC Department of Education special education school comprised of six school sites throughout Brooklyn. We serve students with Autism, Behavioral Challenges and Cognitive Delays.
At Public School 231K we create a core of learners through the collaborative efforts of the students, staff, parents and community. The role of the “teacher” is not limited to the adult, but is extended to the child. In doing so, each child discovers his/her own unique potential, talents, purpose and greatness through a differentiated, interdisciplinary approach inclusive of technological as well as social emotional learning.
We strive to show our students that the biggest classroom is the world around them. We do this by using all available resources to bring the world into the classroom and the classroom into the world.
PS 231K students become independent, productive, problem-solving citizens that seek challenges rather than shy away from them.
