Educational Websites

We have compiled a list of websites that we feel are both fun and educational for students to use to complement their learning at P.S. 255. Most of the websites listed here are free to use, some may require a fee to access certain parts of the website.

As always, children should be carefully watched whenever accessing any part of the internet. Parents, please determine which, if any, of these websites are best for your children. Children should never be left to use the internet unsupervised.

Have fun safely!!
