Description: A lifetime of learning begins at PS/IS 111, The Jacob Blackwell Magnet School of Multimedia Communication Arts and Journalism. As a preK-8 school, it is not your typical middle school. The small number of classes on a grade coupled with small class size creates an ideal learning environment for students to thrive. Students use technological tools in all areas of study to gather, process, present information and express learning outcomes in multimedia, communication arts and journalism formats. Students develop the capabilities to apply knowledge and develop skills for the information age. These skills include - writing, editing, publishing, digital/video production and movie making. This school has a literacy/media center, dance room, science lab with a greenhouse and art instruction for all grades.
