Recruiting NYC HS students for Learn-to-Code Workshop!

CodeNow’s workshop introduces students to the world of technology. By working in small groups led by professional software engineers, students collaborate with peers to create interactive games and apps. Students do not need any prior programming experience to apply - we look for students who have a passion to learn!

CodeNow’s workshop is a great first step to better understanding what coding is and how it works. Upon completion of the workshop, students walk away with 25 hours of computer programming experience. Students should come with an open mind and willingness to learn. CodeNow will provide everything else, including lunch, afternoon snacks, public transit stipends for students who request it, and CodeNow giveaways! Apply today to join a workshop!

All students taking Physical Education need to read this contract and fill out the form to show they have read it.


As a part of her vision for New York City’s schools, Chancellor Fariña has introduced two new ways for the public to evaluate New York City public schools:

  • The School Quality Snapshot is designed specifically for families and provides a concise picture of the quality of each school.
  • The School Quality Guide provides a more robust set of information about each school, including multiple years of data so that schools’ progress over time can be more easily tracked.
As expected, Williamsburg Prep Exceeded expectations in nearly all categories.  GREAT JOB TEAM!

The New York City Department of Education's Achievement Reporting and Innovation System (ARIS) provides a single place where our educators can go to find and study important information about your child. Principals and teachers use this information to find out how best to help your child.
ARIS Parent Link makes this same important information available for you, so you can work together with your child, principal and teacher to help your child learn. ARIS Parent Link uses secure login procedures to be sure that a child's information can be seen only by authorized members of his or her family.

Parents: Sign Up for School Updates

The City’s public notification program, Notify NYC, now sends updates for emergency situations at school and other events that have an impact on the school day by phone, text message, or e-mail to parents and guardians who sign up for the service. The service updates parents about delayed school openings and early dismissals, student relocations, and temporary school closures related to weather or other unexpected events. Parents and guardians can choose to receive alerts for up to five zip codes, and will receive notifications about schools within those zip codes.

Sign up either by visiting www.nyc.gov/notifynyc or by calling 311.
