Public School 38 is a hidden gem of the New York City public school system. It has a strikingly dedicated staff. The effects of which can be seen throughout the halls of the school. Heavily decorated classrooms that exhibit rigorous student work adorn the walls throughout the institution. Further the school offers a variety of academic programs including: music, gym, theater, reading, math, science, social studies, and swim. I highly recommend this school.
