The IB Primary Years Program (PYP), is the first ever curriculum framework for international primary schools, designed for students ages three to ten (grades preschool through five). Through both a unique curriculum approach and unique teaching methods it develops the intellectual, emotional and physical potential of each child.
Dual Language Immersion
At Pine Street School, students have two teachers in the classroom, each working in English or Spanish/Mandarin in small groups, all day long. Academic content is taught and assessed in two languages over an extended period of time. Due to small group teaching and individualized learning plans, the rate of fluency is higher than a standard language immersion program.
We are proud to welcome families from every walk of life, across New York and worldwide. There are more than 30 countries represented among our students and dozens of languages spoken. Families come from as near as Tribeca, SoHo, Chelsea, Williamsburg, DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights, and from as far as the Upper West Side, Harlem and Jersey City!
