WHERE WE ARE
THE EARTH SCHOOL
PS 364, District 1 Community School, Region 9
600 East 6th Street
New York, NY 10009
The staff, families, and support agencies that comprise the Earth School community nurture the development of our students through our ongoing collaboration and our deep commitment to knowing each child through her unique strengths and interests. We work to be a place where children and adults from diverse backgrounds come together to celebrate our differences, to appreciate our common humanity, and to contribute to our community. Our mission is to support children’s inherent love of learning through curriculum that is active, playful, socially-conscious, and rigorous. The Earth School’s educational program is designed to support children’s academic achievement and to encourage their commitment to the peaceful resolution of conflict and the preservation of the Earth’s resources.
