I have a third grader and a child in pre-k and I must say that this school is very unorganized. Unorganized within their own staffs and departments. When you need help and you go to the main office, they seem to be lost with a simple question such as how do I apply for kindergarten. My third grader has been blessed with outstanding teachers thus far, but it seems that the school leadership and organization continue to fail.
I graduated from P.S. 33 in 1949 having gone through the old learning process that WORKED! It was a great school then and I hope it still is GREAT!
This school is an excellent school! My child is bilingual and the principal with her teacher helped me and my child to do go to ESL classes. Ms. Salcedo and Ms. bright are ecellent teachers and so is the principal. The prinicpal is always there to help us bilingual parents and immigarnt parents. it is the first school that you can see and meet with the principal
I have no problems with the is school. I was a student and i see lots of improvements. the children have so much more that when i came to this school. the teachers and Ms. Santos the Principal are so nice. They are very bright peopel and they treat you very special. They don't make you feel umcomfortable like some other schools.
As an alum, I have to say that this school really does care about your future. Even though it's an early time in one's life, I truly believe that these teachers really care about their students.
Overall, the school is fine. I mean the parents can become more involved with their kid's work. But the after school programs are a lot of fun for the kids, they get to be creative and go on trips.
This school needs a lot of improvement. some students disrespect the teachers and administration gives little authority to the teachers. This school is home to all of the children within the neighborhood. There needs to be a better communication between parents and administration. Please be aware that if your child goes to this school much reinforcement of academic work must be made on the parental part. the schools curriculum is geared only for the state tests. other subjects such as history and science are almost completely cut out of the children's academics.
This school leadership was not forthcoming towards the students, parents and community. The parents were not fully briefed and major incidents were overlooked.
Teachers are excellent one of the better public scools in the city of NY.
