PS 64Q is a proud recipient of the NYCDOE Inter-District Federal Magnet Schools Assistance Program.  We are the Magnet School of Leadership and Social Justice Activism.

What are Magnet Schools?

Magnet Schools are public schools of choice. Magnet schools are visionary, innovative and open to students regardless of zip code. Every magnet school has a special theme that makes it unique from other schools. A Magnet education offers  specialized curricula developed and aligned to the school’s theme with student activities designed to promote excellence in all aspects of school and the greater community. Currently funded magnet schools integrate enriching themes  into all academic subjects and school activities. Magnet schools are designed to attract students of all backgrounds who are looking for a specialized academic experience.

What does Magnet education offer?

Magnet Schools are New York City public schools that receive additional funding from the federal government to implement an innovative and themed curriculum, develop creative partnerships for learning and actively encourage family and community participation. Funding enriches academic activities by supporting school trips, additional supplies, partnerships, and special programs as well as professional development for teachers and workshops for parents. Magnet Schools offer challenging interdisciplinary academic experiences designed to engage, inspire and motivate students to achieve. All magnet schools engage in project-based learning and integrate real-world educational experiences into their curricula. A Magnet Education integrates the social, emotional, mental well-being of students to prepare them as  lifelong learners and future leaders.

    February 1, 2024

    Dear Parent or Guardian,

    This letter is to notify you that, our school, 27Q064 - The Joseph P. Addabbo Magnet School of Leadership and Social Justice Activism, has been designated for Local Support and Improvement (LSI) by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) for the 2023-24 school year based on the performance of our students on New York State assessments in school year 2022-23. The designation “Local Support and Improvement (LSI),” recognizes that all schools, even higher performing schools like ours, are in a continuous improvement mode and can benefit from local support from their districts to meet students’ differentiated needs. LSI is the best accountability status currently available. The school’s designation is part of the state’s accountability system consistent with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requirements.

    I’m confident that the programs and interventions that are being implemented citywide and at our school will continue to make the 2023-24 school year a high-quality educational experience for your child.

    Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support. Our entire school staff is committed to ensuring a successful year for our students and school community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 917-374-3915.
