Curriculum Night

The PPAS Academic Team is excited to present the PPAS Academic Curriculum Night to all parents on Thursday, October 6th at 6:00 PM.  We are welcoming parents who would like to come to the building in person (note the NYCDOE policy requires any non-student person entering a school building to be fully vaccinated, so please have proof of vaccination if you choose to come in person). 

In person participants can meet some teachers face-to-face and see some of our facility that your child comes to every day.  Note that as per DOE policy teachers may choose to participate remotely – those teachers will be presenting from a remote location that will be projected on a large screen.

For parents who choose to participate remotely, we will have Zoom links so that you can fully participate in the presentations and Q and A session.

We will record all Zoom presentations and archive them for viewing at later times.  This is particularly helpful for those of you who have more than one child at PPAS!

Curriculum Night will be structured by grade level. Each High School grade will have a presentation, and there will be one presentation for the entire Middle School.

For in-person participation, parents will meet in a dedicated space for their child’s grade level presentations and Q and A at PPAS – 328 West 48th Street.

For remote participation, parents will view presentations on Zoom and will be able to participate in the Q and A by using the chat option in the Zoom room.

We will be sending out grade-level Zoom links next week prior to the Thursday evening presentations.

PPAS Alumni Film

Generation Wrecks features PPAS alumni Victoria Leigh, Violet Prete, Noa Solomon, Jonah Barricklo, Jibreel Mawry, Sam Poon, and Alice Kremelberg. It will be playing its 10th festival on June 20th, at Manhattan Film Festival’s Cinema Village. You can purchase tickets through their website,

Victoria and Bridget wrote Generation Wrecks with Victoria’s father, Kevin T. Morales, starting in the summer before junior year and continuing on weekends during school months. Right up to the very moment they started filming three days after Victoria’s last day at PPAS. 

Generation Wrecks is not MPAA rated but contains moments of strong language, and teen partying.
