Our Insights

The Active Learning Elementary School in Flushing is a neighborhood school serving grades Pre-K through 3. This school is in its own building.

The Pre-K has lots of activities for children to explore art, nature, music, dramatic play and more, which are meant to develop a range of skills and promote a child's acceptance of diversity. Teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, and promote mutual respect and positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. The principal has been leading this school since 2010.

This school prioritizes children who live in District 25, but anyone is welcome to apply. Type your address into our school search to see if your child has priority.
