PS 118, The Maurice Sendak Community School
The Maurice Sendak Community School is a small, collaborative learning community dedicated to fostering intellectual curiosity and a life-long love of learning. Using an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based approach, we will prepare our students to be problem solvers and creative thinkers as they also develop a strong sense of social responsibility to our global community. Our multicultural educational model provides myriad opportunities for cross-cultural understanding among our students. We use a workshop approach to teaching and differentiate the curriculum to meet the needs of individual students at all levels. We cultivate a high level of parent involvement and aim for high academic achievement of our students. Our learning environment promotes collaboration among students, teachers, administrators and parents to excite curiosity, motivate learning and build trust and respect for others.
