PS 145 is a Title 1 elementary school, meaning that more than 75% of our students are children from low-income families with a high percentage living in housing projects and shelters. A quarter of the children experience developmental and emotional difficulties and require special needs support and learning assistance. As a result, our school is generally under-resourced and sadly, provides fewer programs and opportunities for students who need it most.
We are lucky to have a great principal Dr. Natalia Russo, who has opened the doors to the progressive English-Spanish and English-Russian dual-language programs and continues to invest in the best teachers and educational approaches.
No change comes easily and our school is working on building a renewed sense of community. We believe our children will significantly benefit from the ability to play freely together, learn how to develop cooperative social skills, use every possibility for creativity and imagination while stimulating their intellect and simply unwinding after hours of learning and academic instructions.
Please consider donating to our projects as it will, with no doubt, significantly improve the life of our children.
