Located at 1055 Targee Street, PS 9 is one of the newest public schools to open on Staten Island’s North Eastern Shore. PS 9 moved into the former PS 48 building in 2013 with two kindergarten, two pre-kindergarten classes, and an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) kindergarten class. The school will grow a grade per year until it is a full K-5 school with 250-300 students. Naples Street Elementary has a strong focus on the arts, including dance, music, visual arts and drama, which are integrated into social studies and literacy. In addition, there is a strong focus on health and wellness, with the implementation of a school garden program within the school’s first few years. The school is an “open choice” school, meaning admission is open to families throughout the borough. Pre-K and kindergarten admission is determined by lottery from applications filed.
