PS/IS 217

New School Website Launching Soon!

Welcome to PS/iS 217!

Our school is a unique community of 3K through 8th grade learners located on Roosevelt Island in the heart of New York City. We have an incredibly diverse school with students from over 60 nationalities, and where each student is encouraged and supported to meet high academic standards and learn valuable life skills!

At PS/IS 217, we are committed to challenging and supporting our student body to strengthen both academic and positive social growth, and work hard to cultivate an environment where each child's individual learning needs are recognized and embraced. Every school day, the goal of our teachers and staff is to empower your children to meet and exceed their personal goals, to become independent thinkers, and to develop a lifelong love of learning.

I encourage 217 families to partner and collaborate with us to help create a rich learning environment both at school and at home, so that all our students can reach for their potential and enjoy a positive and successful future. I look forward to starting a new school year with you and your students -- we are excited to have you be part of the 217 community!
