According to DNAInfo and other sources, plans for the Foundling Elementary School seems to be moving forward in the Flatiron at 590 6th Avenue (at 17th Street). This would be the first public elementary school in Community District 5 (our district). It would be called PS 340 according to the article, and would serve approximately 500 students from pre-kindergarten to 6th Grade.

The school would be on 6 floors, and have specialized classrooms, a library, a cafeteria, a lecture hall and performance stage, a professional dance studio, a multi-purpose room, a rooftop playground, and an outdoor terrace for younger kids with rubberized floors and jungle gyms.

It is unclear if this will be a ‘zoned’ or ‘choice’ school, but considering there are no public elementary schools in district 5, it looks like it should be a zoned school, but this is to be determined. Completion is slated to be 2014.
