Common Ground Collaborative (CGC) Learning Ecosystem is focused on the development of each student's gifted qualities within a safe and supportive learning community that nurtures the growth of their academic, social, and executive function skills. Pine Street Middle School will be unparalleled by any other school in NYC in preparing students to enter the High School that is the best fit for them as confident, skilled, talented, passionate, and compassionate students.
