The Lower Lab Afterschool program is sponsored by the PTA and organized by parent volunteers with 2 semesters per year. There are 5 – 6 classes offered daily with coverage until 5pm on all full days of school.  On-site supervision is provided by Lower Lab teacher assistants.  Classes are taught by outside vendors and Lower Lab staff.   Pick-up is from school or an off-site location by 5pm, and there is no busing home.  COME PLAY WITH US!   Contact us with questions at

The Lower Lab PTA runs an afterschool program. Class options vary by semester and may include: Chess, Robotics, Computer Science, Sports, Hip Hop Dance, Mad Science, Newspaper, and DramaZone. The offerings change by semester. There is no after-school busing; therefore, parents or other adults, who are authorized by parents, must pick up students. The Beacon Program is a free program that services both schools and is available to all students in the building between three- five days per week concluding at 6:00 pm.  Our parents also take advantage of afterschool programs at 92nd Street Y.
