Public School 6

"...Always a Leap Ahead!"

From the beginning of the twentieth century up until 1945, Public School 6 was located in the neighborhood of Rossville. At that time, the school's building began to be used as a factory. It was not until 1999 that a new building for the school began to be constructed. By September of 2000, the new Public School 6 opened, at 555 Page Avenue, in the Pleasant Plains area. It was later named the Corporal Allan F. Kivlehan School, in honor of one of the first Staten Islanders to die during the Korean War.

Public School 6 teaches students from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade. It also has special education programs. The school offers many after-school programs, which include arts and crafts, cheerleading, physical education, and scouting. There are also workshops for reading, writing, and math.
