Classes are organized into grade level Houses or teams, affording youngsters the attention and comfort of a small learning environment.

Eighth grade SP students take Regents exams in Integrated Algebra, Earth Science and Living Environment, as well as the Spanish Proficiency exam and receive high school Regents credits accordingly. We boast a nearly 100% passing rate on all Regents exams. Many of our students go on to attend specialized high schools including Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech. Our English Language Learners (ELLs) receive extensive supports services both during the school day and in after-school programs.
