PS 11 is located in the residential/commercial area of Woodside, Queens. The primary mission of “Exploring Communities and Cultures Through the Arts,” the CAE-funded arts-in-education program it developed with CityLore, was to strengthen ties between the school and its community by integrating the culture of the community into the curriculum. The program provided skill-based instruction in visual arts, music, theater, and dance, infusing them into the social studies curriculum.
