The curriculum at PS 11 continues to be threatened by budget cuts including Art, Music, Dance, Computers, Math & Literacy Development and Staff Development. State and City budgets are based on minimal standards. All of the school’s important enrichment activities are paid for by the PTA funds. The PS 11 PTA has made it their mission to make up for this shortfall.
