River East Elementary


River East was honored as a School of Excellence to receive a 2019 Blackboard Award !

We have moved! We all know a school is not a building, but the people and community which make it up. That being said, we have a new building site, one block from our former home. Our new school address is 2351 First Ave, NY, NY, 10035. Our new phone number is (212) 802-3035. You can also email any admission questions to our principal, Mr. Mike Panetta, at mpanetta@schools.nyc.gov

  • River East Elementary was one of Inside Schools' Pre-K Picks for Manhattan & tops picks for elementary schools!!
  • In addition to getting a new building site, our website is getting a new platform. Please bear with us as we update.
