Yellow Bus Transportation & MTA MetroCard: Students in Grade 6 have the option to take the yellow school bus. Students can take the school bus to and from school from a centralized pickup location near your house.  If you need yellow bus transportation, speak with any staff member in the main office (by phone at 718-961-3480, or in person in room 108).  In addition to the yellow bus service, students have access to the NYC MTA public buses.  Based on the distance between home and school, many students are eligible for half or full fare Metro Cards.  Eligible students receive two Metro Cards per year, one in September (for the fall semester), and a second card in February (for the spring semester).  Any lost or damaged cards can be replaced in the main office. 


Gym Uniform: All students are required to wear a gym uniform during their physical education periods.  Students may wear their uniform all day, or may change in the locker room during their gym period. Uniform orders must be made online at by September 16th.  If you need assistance with your gym uniform order, speak with your Parent Coordiantor, Ms. Trotter at or 718-961-3480 x 1431.

After-School Program: Greater Ridgewood Youth Council offers a free after-school program for all students Monday – Friday from 2:30pm – 5:30pm.  This program is funded by SONYC (Schools Out New York City) a program created by Mayor Bill DeBlasio for newly reformed expansion to free after-school programs for the middle school.  To request an application, contact Ms. Dina DePaola at or call the main office at 718-961-3480.
