    Talent Testing This Sat/Sun

    General Info

    • The phone (718-266-0814) will be manned starting at 6:45am for last minute questions, calling in absences (be sure to get a doctor’s note to avoid rescheduling problems), etc.
    • Our web site at is239.schoolwires.com will have any weather related scheduling changes as soon as those are determined.
    • Please make sure your child comes properly equipped for their respective tests (test ticket, pencils, erasers, proper footwear, etc.)
    • Make sure your child doesn’t have any electronics with them including a smart phone or smart watch.


    • Parking next to and behind the school is limited to staff by permit only.
    • Street parking in Coney Island is available but limited. Arrive early because you may have a bit of a walk.


    • At 10am and 3pm our Parents’ Association sells snacks, drinks and pizza between testing sessions. Give your child a few dollars to purchase their own snacks (or have them bring especially if allergies are an issue).
    • If your child is with us all day due to extended time testing, you must be here at 11:45am to pick them up and bring them back for the 1pm test (lunch).

    is239.schoolwires.com Domain About to Change

    On little to no notice, our web site address is going to change. Currently, we've been designated as ny18000436.schoolwires.net, and our address of over a decade, is239.schoolwires.com, has been redirecting to that cryptic ny## address. We've requested that the vendor (blackboard.com) continue redirecting is239.schoolwires.com but they've made it clear that they've been doing that as a favor with a limited lifespan and we're concerned it will discontinue with this URL transition.

    In any case, the new address is likely to be twain239.net and we'll create links or redirects from all other domains we own (twain239.org which is our Google G-Suite site, is239.net, twain239.com, the DOE school web site system, etc. Please be patient with the transition. We're involved with multiple vendors and systems and it's likely some things will take longer than others. If you're desperate to access something from the site, should you be unable to get to it during the transition, email prubin3@twain239.org. 

    NJHS / Care Packages for our Troops

    The NJHS will be assembling care packages for our troops. The following items should be brought in because the specific troops are deployed to an African orphanage:
