I remeber when i first started kindergarten here in 2007. Its been a while because i moved when i was in 3rd grade to a different state. That school is totally awsome! They have a library and a playground and a mural that can amaze your eyes. All the teachers I had from K---3rd was the best teachers of the school. You I give this school a 8/10.

WOW! I remember going to this school back in 1999 to 2004. Amazing school. From the teachers to the environment. The beautiful murals. I remember that everyday spent in that school was just spectacular. The learning environment was the greatest. I can say that my elementary days were well spent with inspiring and dedicated teachers. The greatest! JUST Magnificent. :)

I would like to say the school is a great school. The teachers are very easy to talk to and they are very open-minded, outstanding. But you have to realize not all depends on the teachers and principal, but the parents who are involved with their children to make a better education for them. The teachers provide homework not for the children only, but for the parents to get involved with their child s education. They all empower the children so they can become proactive and diligent with their education. I know all this because I am an involve parent who have a son who attend the school.

PS 47 has a great principal and has been bringing in quite a few new teachers who are really dedicated and intelligent. There is still a portion of ps 47's staff that is resistant to change and can be a bit monotonous with their strict adherence to union rules. The school is trying hard in a devolping community to create strong learners in their students. One downside may be the number of students and the size of the school.

This school offers what I believe to be standard levels of academic programs. Programs such as their after school program, I do not find valuable. It seems to really be a 'day care' atmosphere. Being a parent in this school for two years I have not seen children offered music. Sports, well if you concider hop scotch and jump rope sports. ART, is different, everywhere you go in the school, art is. In the class rooms, in the hall ways. I feel the level of parent involvemnet in this school is good. In the 2 years I've been at this school, I have seen large turn -outs on teacher/parent nights, and constant flyer hand outs for upcoming events. Some of which come with a required parent signature.
