My daughter has been in School 27 since 3rd grade. She has been through ups and downs both scholastically and with her peers; however, her teachers have shown nothing but support and go out on a limb to help her. Ms. Harvey, Ms. Chapman, Mrs. Aiello, Mr. Pindilli, are fantastic! Ms. Dobbs gets things done. Funny but a friend of mine transferred their daughter to a school in Haledon. That school was far below the academics of School 27. Nothing but good things going on here. However, as another parent said, make sure you child can attend School 27 because other schools in Paterson are horrible. Not crazy about the office administration or Ms. Ayala though.
The principal Mrs Dobbs is The best. The teachers however need to show more of an interest in the well being of the children.
Terrible administration, although the new vp looks promising. Wonder school as a whole. Dedicated teachers that are the best. Only pta in paterson who do wonderful things- major drawback- dont buy a house unless they open enrollment because kids are being bussed to school across town and parents are not happy about that. Best school in town if you can get in!!!
it has a good enviroment and has a very good college status this scool is chibin
This is the first year my kids are in this school and I think the school is very good. The only thing I would suggest to change is the way the second-graders sit. They sit like in Kinder garden, around tables, in groups of about eight kids. I believe by now, all those kids should be sitting independently, in chairs.
I think that if we parents would make presence in schools our kids would get better education with less students per classroom, better discipline and letting the teachers and kids make a better work. Besides we pay a lot of taxes, maybe less than other districts but we got nothing comparing to those.
