Welcome to the Magnet School of Applied Life Sciences
As the result of a a thoughtful application for a Magnet School Grant from the federal government PS/IS 121 has received
funding to develop a life science curriculum at our school. The funding received is being used to attract students to a school
that clearly appreciates and promotes the understanding of the impact of life science on the local and world community. Over
the course of the next three years (and beyond) we will see our school undergo a physical, cultural, and academic
transformation that brings awareness of many of the living things we share the planet with, our interaction with these things,
and the impact of human coexistence. An important part of our new school identity is the word “Applied”. This word indicates
our commitment to applying our learning to our actual experiences at our school, neighborhood and the world beyond.
