Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
At PS 347: "47" The American Sign Language and English Lower School, tremendous care is given to every child in order for them to learn at their own pace and reach their academic potential. We support our Reggio Emilia Pre-Kindergarteners all the way through our 8th Graders with our master teachers, dynamic dual language lessons and rigorous course load to prepare them to be lifelong learners.
We have 2 libraries staffed with a Certified School Media Specialist that has the latest Award winning titles. PS 347 is a participant in the School Library Guild.
There are Art and Dance programs where the students can explore their passions and show off their talents. They are regular Art showcases and Dance Talent Shows.
Also, one of the crown jewels of the school is Broadway Books First Class, the pride of Teacher Dr. Gary Wellbrock, where renown Broadway Stars visit the classroom and read stories to the children. Tony and Oscar Award winners have participated in the program!
