PS 37 is a District 75 School in Staten Island. 95% of students attending PS 37 exhibit autism spectrum disorders. PS 37 has been a partner of Marquis Studios since 2002; over the years, we have been increasingly struck by the potential of the arts to serve as an outlet for autistic children, supplementing verbal communication and encouraging creativity and experimentation with new movements, materials, and ways of interacting with the environment and with others.

Marquis Studios, an arts-in-education nonprofit organization, is proud to offer arts programming to NYC District 75 schools. Serving a diverse population, 75% of students in Marquis programs live at or below the poverty level and 35% serve students with disabilities. As our mission states, we believe that the arts are key to making learning a positive experience for every child, and there is no group of students for whom this is more true than students with disabilities. We strive to provide students with new opportunities for communication, expression, and engagement with teachers and peers in an academic environment.
