This is the first year that my son has attend P.S.#26. I must say, so far this year he is into his school work. He doesn't dread having homework or going to school. They also have the Huntington Learning Center coming to the school, which is another great thing. He attended Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology and I was not pleased with the results! Kudos to P.S.#26 for doing a great job thus far!
