This school is ok and has a very a major flaw. The teacher Ms. Alvarado as a parent, I want my child to be respected. This lady yells at the children, right at their face AND THE PARENTS! This lady is just plain rude and needs to get another hobby then yelling and hollering at children for the littlest reasons. I'm with another reviewer. FIRE MS. ALVARADO!
School 29 is the best and awesome. Love the school been going there since i was in pre-k with my best friend NATALIE GARCIA. LOVE ALL MY BEST FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This school is one of the best in the city. It has a strong focus in STEAM and has some creative ways of showing it. I've been a student in it since the day it opened and left in 2011. I love how there is a large focus in technology. During my time @ 29, we had many people from NASA come talking about internships, programs, and helping kids learn more about STEAM in general. I ended up in one of those programs and in Lower academy thanks to that. The teachers are really good. I can say that I have learned a lot there than at other schools and that 29 has helped me and other students become what they wanted to be.
Just Excellent! I love the school, staff and it is very clean and safe. The rules are clear for everyone. Children are treated respectfully and encourage for getting success like persons and promoting the community. Let me add about Ms Alverado that I could see she was rough sometime, I didn't know why, but I can say I saw some improving on this side.
Ms. Alvarado - I've had 2 encounters w this lady where she just comes up to u with an attitude, without even saying who she is, and talking to you like you were worth nothing. I have never complaint about this lady, because I know we all have our bad days. Now I guess it's just that she's menopausal all the time! because for her to have this unprofessionalism way about her is beyond me. Now that the kids are in summer school, my mother had an incident w her, and not only that she has the nerve to talk about the incident in my daughters class to her teacher. What gets me really angry is that when my daughter says "don't talk about my grandmother" she turns around and says " shut up! I'm not talking to you. Turn around & go to sleep". When this happenned it was nap time in my daughters class. This is the kind of teacher that should not be around my kids or any kid for that matter. I have not met w the principle yet, she's on vacation but this is an unsolved matter as off right now. I encourage all the parents not to stay quiet. Speak up!! People like this Ms. Alvarado should not be teaching. Its time to clean up. I say "get rid off the garbage" !!!
The school has a high quality standard in terms of their faculty, facility and the curriculum program. My child is in Pre-K and she already learned to write her name, know the basic concept of math and science..for a 3 year old that is amazing!!! I saw their facility and it is very conducive and safe for learning children and the teachers are all alert and competent and in touch based with the parents.
This school is excellent. I know because i was a student there from 2005 when it opened til 2009. This school is new and has the best certified teachers for the best education. They have great programs that help your children to go to Ivy league high schools. Now i'm in Lower academy, which is the highest ranked high school in Elizabeth. That's all thanks to 29.
My daughter has attended AEA for three years, starting with Pre-K at age 3. So far, I am impressed with all aspects of the school. The school is clean, orderly and safe. The technology and other educational tools in the classroom are top-notch. Most importantly, the teachers work hard to teach and challenge their students; they show true dedication (special kudos to Ms. Terra and Ms. Riveira). I feel that the administration and teachers really care about my child, and I can only hope that my other children are lucky enough to get into this school.
So far everything has been wonderful it is getting harder for my 1st grader academic wise. however, I believe that is a good thing it shows me that the school is challenging my child to stay at her best.
My daughter, Ivanna started Kindergarten at AEA since the first day they opened their doors in January of 2006, she is now in 2nd grade. We both love the school. I am very impressed with the teachers and administrators. The teacher of Discipline, Ms. Alvarado, is stern and a no non-sense type of leader, yet very fair and kind. The teachers are great, they push the children to achieve high academic levels. The only thing I would critique is that busing can be very disorganized, I have noticed that there is chaos. And security does not enforce the front driveway where parents carelessly speed into and children have to jump out of the way. But overall, I have been completelly satified with my daughter's experience at School 29. We are sadden to leave .. moving to Texas.
In think is the best place for my Daughter to stay. We both are so much happy with the school academy programs, recreation, teachers, activities, location etc etc... My daughter is so happy for been there she don't want to miss one day not even when sick that's what she told firs day school when she come back home. I hope this year we going to be rate 10
Can you describe #29 in one word? I sure can- amazing! My son Daniel and my niece both went to this school for 2nd grade. The school is Pre-K through 8 and Daniel never came home from complaining or saying how he hated, which is what happened when he was at Westminster. I'm glad I sent him here.
