PS 354Q - THE JERMAINE L. GREEN
STEM INSTITUTE OF QUEENS
PS 354Q - The Jermaine L. Green STEM Institute of Queens is an elementary school located in the heart of Rochdale Village in District 28 serving students from 3K to Grade 5. The school was originally founded as a K to 2 school by Jermaine L. Green in 2011. Mr. Green had a vision for students to become strong readers, writers, and thinkers as well as to be technologically savvy and sound. Since then, PS 354Q has grown to include students from 3K through Grade 5. Since his passing in 2013, PS 354Q have been committed to continuing Mr. Green’s vision by providing students with opportunities to engage in critical thinking through science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Additionally, students utilize these skills to amplify their voices and become leaders for their time.
Our students engage in a rigorous, challenging and supportive curriculum that encompasses targeted supports for groups of students as well as individual students. We provide an inclusive environment where students engage in both micro-classes and macro-classes as they grow within our school. We offer opportunities for students to become self-sufficient and independent thinkers through collaborative discussions, cross-curricular activities and STEM activities. Students have the opportunity to major in one of our four STEM majors in the upper grades. Our school offers dual language classes, where student become biliterate and bilingual in both Spanish and English. Our students partner with community organizations to attain skills applicable to the current society in which they live.
Our community consists of dedicated, dynamic, creative, and experienced educators and staff from all walks of life. Our staff makes it their mission to ensure that our students are reaching their full potential through collaboration, data analysis, and inquiry work. Our diverse staff speak many languages including Spanish, Haitian Creole, and Bangla.
