Strive Together: A Question of Direction - On addressing our children's education needs, might we consider emulating Strive Together, with its motto "Every Child. Cradle to Career." It's a national movement to improve educational outcomes in communities across America. StriveTogether is a national, nonprofit network of 70 communities using a rigorous approach to accelerate progress and sustain success in education. They provide coaching, connections and resources to local partnerships and work together to measurably improve six results from cradle to career. See this this summary report on Strive Together by David Brooks.

We have a variety of public, private, and parochial schools in Jackson Heights from pre-K through college. As well, we have specialized schools. This page lists and links to detailed pages about those schools.

Pre K does NOT have zones. Enrollment is completely different from public school Kindergarten. Pre K has a combination of Department of Education and privately run providers such as 82nd Street Academic or Garden School.

Some of our local zoned public schools have preK seats, but due to the massive overcrowding of Jackson Heights' schools, the city contracts out most preK seats.

Education Issues[edit]

Long Term Pre-K Problem[edit]

It's said that with the introduction of full day pre-K and now 3-K, we need 3 more schools in Jackson Heights to fit all the 3 and 4 year olds. Most often the city just hires private contractors to fill the gap. A solution to this problem will require neighborhood engagement and support from city and state representative.

Rezoning Q398[edit]

Rezoning map Q398.png
  • A new school building, Q398, is scheduled to open at 69-01 34th Avenue for the 2019 - 2020 school year. It will serve approximately 476 elementary students. See the June 18, 2018 draft rezoning plan here: File:Rezoning presentation-1.pdf
