Public School 31

"Promote lifelong learning an strive for excellence"

The original Public School 31 was constructed in 1904 in Staten Island’s Sandy Ground community, on the South Shore. By 1940, the building had been surrendered and was used as a furniture warehouse. By the second half of the twentieth century, a new school building was constructed and labeled as “Public School 31”, though this school was built to replace New Brighton’s P.S. 17. The current P.S. 31, located at 55 Layton Avenue in St. George, was designated as The William T. Davis School, in honor of the Staten Island historian.

Public School 31 teaches students from pre-kindergarten all the way up until the fifth grade, and it also allows has special education classes. Some of the extra programs offered by the school are Breakthrough to Literacy, Hand-on Science, Computer Lab, Hands-on Math, and Studio in a School. The school also participates in Halloween and Memorial Day parades.
