We are College-Ready!


P.S. 247 has embarked on a new journey to prepare its elementary school students for college! Our school in collaboration with our corporate partner, Ivy Cohen Corporate Communications, Inc., has developed the P.S. 247 College Partnership Program™ to prepare our students to expect college to be a part of their education continuum beyond elementary school.
