Located Warren and West Streets, PS 89 is a zoned elementary school for children in Pre-K through 5th grades living full-time in northern Battery Park City. PS 89 was founded 1998 by principal Ronnie Najjar, and currently has an enrollment of 420 students. The school shares the building with IS 289. Our location provides many opportunities to tap into the resources of lower Manhattan, with easy access to Hudson River Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, Tribeca, and the sites of New Amsterdam. Classes take trips around the neighborhood, as well as field trips to museums, parks, and study sites throughout the city.
The Parent And Teacher Association (PTA) organizes many events throughout the year, including the annual Taste of Battery Park City with the help of the community that supports the school by volunteering and donating.
