Shots rang out on Fox Street in Morrisania just as students were getting out of PS 150 about a block away.
Police say a gunman fired a number of times, with one shot grazing the 8-year-old victim in her left leg.
She was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.
After the shooting, bullet casings littered the ground and were lodged in a nearby house.
The suspect is still at large.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
