District 25

District 25 stretches across a diverse group of communities in north central Queens, from Flushing's densely populated Chinatown to the more suburban neighborhoods of Whitestone and College Point. The district has many well-regarded, neighborhood schools, and most students attend their zoned elementary school. There are several gifted and talented programs and three early childhood schools that admit students in grades k to 3 from across the district: PS 130, PS 242 and the Active Learning Elementary School.

The Queens College School for Math, Science and Technology serves grades pre-k to 8 and admits students from anywhere in Queens by lottery.

Most students go to their zoned middle school, but there are a few districtwide options: Bell Academy serves student in grades 6 to 8, and East-West School of International Studies, Queens School of Inquiry, World Journalism Preparatory all serve grades 6 to 12.

The highly selective Townsend Harris High School is one of the most demanding and top performing high schools in the city.

The district has two, large zoned high schools, Flushing and John Bowne. Other options include the agriculture program at John Bowne that admits students citywide and two small high schools that opened in 2013 in the Flushing High School campus building: Queens High School for Language Studies and Veritas Academy, which has a transitional bilingual program for native Korean speakers.
