PS 349

Magnet School for Leadership and Innovation through STEAM

PS 349 is a magnet elementary school located in District 28 in Queens, NY, teaching students in Pre-K through 5th grade. PS 349 opened its doors to students in Pre-K and Kindergarten in September 2015. We have since grown to include a new grade each year, serving a diverse population of over 600 students.  In 2021, we will celebrate our first graduating 5th grade class.

Student Life

PS 349 is a uniform school. Our start time is 8:00AM with breakfast available starting at 7:30AM (times subject to change due to COVID-19). We are located in a brand new state of the art building and our classes are based around the themes of leadership and STEAM. Students learn to work cooperatively and support each other in learning through Project-Based Learning (PBL). Our students are happy learners who are engaged and genuinely motivated to learn something new every day. We offer various after-school enrichment programs aligned with our magnet themes. We believe in life-long learning, so our teachers are always training to expand their professional abilities and enhance their craft of teaching. Families are partners in learning as well, and have many opportunities to participate in learning alongside their children. 


As a Magnet School, PS 349 follows the NYCDOE enrollment process for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Please follow the links below for more information:
