We offer a comprehensive range of intervention programs, ensuring that each student’s unique learning needs are addressed. Our exemplary prekindergarten curriculum is further enhanced by our partnerships with distinguished community organizations, such as the Metropolitan Church of God and the National Council of Jewish Women.

    Central to our nurturing ethos is the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) program, which champions positive behavior and fosters a culture of recognition and encouragement.

This initiative ensures that every student is paired with a dedicated staff mentor, offering a consistent source of support and emotional nurturing. These mentors are available to meet with their mentees regularly, providing assistance, a sympathetic ear, or a comforting hug as needed, ensuring no child feels unsupported.

    At Coleman A. Young Elementary School, with nearly 500 young minds in our care, we prioritize the emotional well-being of each student, believing it to be integral to their overall success.
