PS/IS 276
55 Battery Place
New York, NY 10280

Beginning in September 2010 PS/IS 276 Battery Park City will be located
at 55 Battery Place in lower Manhattan, occupying the first school building
in New York City to be conceived and built as a “green” school. Its
construction includes solar panels and sustainable building materials,
a certain percentage of which was purchased locally to reduce transport
pollution.

PS 276 originally opened for the 2009-2010 academic year to serve
the diverse population in Battery Park City, and help alleviate the
over-crowding of schools in increasingly residential downtown
Manhattan.  The school began with three kindergarten classes and
will add a 6th grade when it moves to its new “green” building later this
year.
