One of THE BEST school in Jersey City. My daughter studied until grade 5 and now my son has started with this school. Excellent teachers and very helpful. I have had experience with multiple teachers (don't want to name just a few), and all have been very helpful, courteous and always working towards our child's progress. Am proud to send my children to PS#11

MLK is a great school. Never had any problems with my two sons being there for the past five years. Teachers are very efficient and effective. They keep me informed about my kids' behavior and the school in general keep parents informed and up to date with happenings.

This is school is like most of the schools in Jersey City TERRIBLE!!! The teachers and principle and vice principle are very laid back about everything from learning to bullying and when you complain about it they will do petty and evil things to try to play a "tit for tat" game when all your trying to do is ensure your child recieves a decent education. The teachers are more concerned about spying on you to see if your child lives in that district. A teacher actually went to a post office to get information on where my child lived but declined to stay 5 minutes after school to dicsuss my childs report card. More and more Im starting to see that it's not possible in an urban setting such as Jersey city to receive quality education. The curriculum is bad and the teachers are worse they don't care at all about your children. It's an all around disaster.

Please dont evr send your pre schoolers to this school. My 4 year old son had the worst experience ever and the teachers are so rude,and they just dont have any idea on how to deal with 4 year old kids. They act as if its a military school and my son was so terrified of going to this school.the worst school ever and the worst teachers ever. I dont know how the other class teachers are but since my son had a terrible time in Pre K,im never ever going to send him to this school ever.

Hi, I love PS # 11. I think it is the best school in Jersey city, when I came from NY. to live in this city I did not know where register my three kids, I was afraid because my kids always were to private schools but, my experience in MLK Jr. PS # 11 is so good, the teacher are realy professionals they know how to teach and they are very entusiastic. I wholeheartedly recommend this school for your childs.

My son has been going to MLK school since pre-k and is now in kindergarten. The teaching method is very good and so is the environment. I just think that in any school you have a group of children who think they superior and therefore will bother the others. It's always been the case and will always be. That said, MLK is a wonderful public school.

Please don't send your children in this school. The security is bad. Other than that the teachers are good just need to teach your kids how to defend themselves from being bullied by other kids.

P.S.#11 is a great school. They have great staff members. My daughter is in kindergarten and she's very happy with the school. The kids are not as bad as I thought. The environment is very friendly. The majority of kids that goes to this school are hispanic and asian. I didn't make the wrong decision of sending my daughter to this school. She went to St.Aedans school for pre-k because I was scared to send her to public school. But when the school didn't take actions about her being bullied by another kid. I had no choice but to try out for public school. Public schools are very strict about bullying. They have laws about kids being bullied in school. I felt that private school didn't take the problem too seiously. Thank God I tried p.s.#11 because my daughter now comes home with a happy face.

I just moved to the neighborhood and enrolled my 2 kids in MLK. I think, first it should be mentioned that school uniforms are required. And also after researching the school on this site, i can say the demographic breakdown of the student body looks nothing like the 'pie' provided, leaving the pie not nearly so evenly sliced as one may be led to belive. I suggest visiting the school before deciding.
