Building a Foundation
Coney Island Prep Lower Elementary School blends joy, rigor, and high expectations to ensure our scholars in Kindergarten through second grade are ready to succeed. With two teachers in every classroom, smaller teacher to student ratios help accelerate learning and allow for tailored instruction for each scholar.
Spotlight: Early Childhood Literacy and the Science of Reading
Strong Readers Start Here
Coney Island Prep leverages a research-backed approach to teach the science of reading. We focus heavily on phonics instruction, word recognition, vocabulary, background knowledge and comprehension skills, to cultivate our young learners’ strong reading abilities from the moment they step into our building.
With two teachers in every classroom to support smaller ratios and provide more individualized support, scholars spend most of their day in small group instruction tailored to their needs.
