ABOUT P.S. 233
A Community of Learners
P.S. 233, The Langston Hughes School, is a public Pre-K through Grade 5 elementary school. We have faithfully served our East Flatbush community for over 90 years, and focus on educating the whole child - socially, emotionally, and academically.
Our talented and dedicated teachers provide students a strong foundation in all subject areas. We ensure opportunities for students to engage in critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication, collaboration and creativity as part of their school experience and provide for effective use of technology and real-world application of knowledge and skills. Our students receive specialized instruction in horticulture and hydroponics, music instruction and performance, library media, computer science, robotics, and physical education. Struggling students and those with special needs are offered the additional supports needed to grow and flourish as learners.
All of our classroom teachers have earned Masters degrees in Education. Most of our students are of Caribbean or Middle Eastern descent.
When a man starts out to build a world,
He starts first with himself.
