P.S. 160 is an oasis in the heart of Borough Park, Brooklyn. Built in 1909, the school has been serving the community for over 100 years. Developing the minds, hearts, and spirits of our children has become our greatest achievement. We recently added an Annex to our school which helped ease overcrowding. It also allowed us to add a brand new Art Room as well as a Gymnasium.
