P.S. 185 M is a early childhood elementary school serving grades Pre-K to 2nd grade in Harlem, NY. Our school, also known as Early Childhood Discovery & Design Magnet School, is about community building and growth and we need to grow!

P.S. 185 M serves approximately 250 bright and eager learners in grades PK through 2. Our mission is to create and sustain an enriched learning environment that ensures each child reaches a high level of achievement.

It is our vision that children who attend our school will learn to love learning; to understand that they have a place in the world and an important contribution to make. They will understand that learning is a process. They will be flexible, resilient and creative thinkers, who are able to work collaboratively and solve problems.

We want to our students to have the option to start and complete their elementary education at our progressive NYC public school that promotes creativity, diversity, family-bonding and most importantly academics, in which we use a engineering based curriculum.

The NYC Department of Education is considering a proposal to consolidate P.S. 208 M (our neighbor school) with P.S. 185 M to make P.S. 185M, a larger elementary able to serve grades Pre-K through 5th grade with our progressive curriculum.

Please support this consolidation and help expand our school, our programs and our mission to offer every child within our school community of District 3 and abroad a quality, free, progressive elementary education to build our leaders of the future.


We ask that you sign our petition that we will share with The Panel for Education Policy, NYC Dept of Education, NYC Dept of Education - District 3 and Chancellor Carmina Farina to allow the students of P.S. 185 M a consistent and quality education from Pre-K to 5th grade to cultivate the endless possibilities of greatness within each child in preparation for middle school, high school, college and beyond!
