About Us

P.S. 152 is a Pre-K – Grade 5 neighborhood school located in the historic South Midwood section of Brooklyn.

Our current enrollment is approximately 560 students. Our work, as a school community, will be grounded in the Chancellor’s vision for building strong schools: the Framework for Great Schools. The framework stresses six critical components of high-achieving schools: rigorous instruction, supportive environment, collaborative teachers, effective school leadership, strong family ties, and trust. Additionally, our Instructional Focus for the 2021-2022 school year is to use formative and summative assessment practices to make data-driven decisions for small group instruction.

Through the collective effort, hard work, determination, and commitment from the entire school community, we will further our children’s successes.
