Welcome to the P811M The Mickey Mantle School. We are a New York City Department of Education special education school in the Citywide Special Education District 75.

Our Core Beliefs:

We Believe Students Learn Best When...

  • Classroom environments are structured and predictable.
  • Instruction is driven by data and assessments.
  • Students are given multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement through Universal Design for Learning to maximize access and rigor on an individual basis.
  • Students are given Specially Designed Instruction based on students' unique physical, socio-emotional needs & strengths.
  • Student-directed learning exists with an emphasis on communication, student-to-student interaction and student choice.

To kick off College Awareness Day, our school hosted the Harlem Magic Masters on Friday, January 10th for our middle school students and during the month of January they visited several City University of New York Colleges.

The Harlem Magic Masters is a community-based organization that uses basketball and games to inform and inspire middle school students to work toward their goals.

College Access for All: Middle School is an initiative that promotes early college awareness to students and families across all five boroughs in New York City as part of the New York City Department of Education's College Access for All Middle School Initiative.

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage

Every year between September 15 and October 15, Americans across the United States celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month in honor of the histories, cultures, and contributions of families with roots in Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, and/or South America.

Originally designated as “Hispanic Heritage Week” by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968, the 30-day period that is celebrated today was signed into U.S. law as a joint resolution by President Ronald Reagan and Congress in 1988.

So why does this celebration kick off in the middle of September? September 15 was selected as the first day in symbolic recognition of the Independence Days for the Latin American countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, as well as Mexico (September 16) and Chile (September 18).
