Additional Information

 I.S. 237 provides a robust and supportive middle school experience and, at the same time, promotes college and career readiness in multiple ways. Our strong academic program includes Special Progress (SP) courses on each grade level. Eighth grade SP students take Regents exams in Algebra, US History & Government, Earth Science, and Living Environment, as well as the Spanish Proficiency exam. Many students go on to attend Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, and Brooklyn Tech. English language learners receive instruction before, after, and during the school day as well as on Saturdays. All students receive instruction in visual arts, band, strings, or chorus. Our extended day programs include academic tutoring, basketball, musical theater, guitar, keyboard, and art. Our Debate and Math teams have won multiple district-, borough-, and city-wide tournaments. SONYC, a free after-school program, offers homework help and recreational activities Monday through Friday from 2:20pm-5pm, Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5pm-6:30pm, and is open during most school holidays. We welcome parent involvement at all  times.
