PS 682 has the exclusive NEST program for kids with Autism who are hand-selected after a rigorous application process. All of TAOTS benefits greatly from NEST, they receive funding, positive behavior supports in place for all kids, creative methods in training teachers, a positive social environment encouraged by focusing on what makes us connected instead of differences that can result in bullying & more! A first grade Nest class has 4 spectrum kids and 12 neurotypical ones. The "regular" children are not "suffering" as suggested but quite the opposite. Their kid is in a smaller class with 2 teachers who encourage social interaction of EVERY child. If a "regular" kid struggles, it is not because of Nest. Students are not only with their classmates all week long. They socialize with the entire grade during enrichments, recess, etc. Kids make friends in the other classes too. TAOTS has many wonderful things to offer: the communicative and hard working staff, the beautiful building, the great PTA, a challenging curriculum, enrichment clusters, etc. My only critique is I'm not a huge fan of the Teacher's College Reading & Writing so I supplement with more phonics, etc. at home.

I have two children in this school. Teachers are young and enthusiastic. School is relatively new and clean. My youngest is in the first grade and complains that nobody plays with her during recess. She is NEST class, half of children are with Special needs and these children are benefitting a lot from being with regular children. But my child is suffering, half of the class isn't social the other half has few girls that are mean to her and boys are just not interested. Although, she benefits Academically since there are 16 children and 2 teachers, great pupil/teacher ratio. I'm not sure how this issue could be solved. They use Singapore math, which is a huge plus. My children in general love going to school.

This is our last year in this school and the standards for the next one are set very high. Till this day my child runs to school in the morning. The teachers are A M A Z I N G!!! Their patience, creativity and positive attitude made my daughter fall in love with learning and I consider it a lifelong gift. I am so thankful and so very sad to be leaving TAOTS after this year. My daughter said, she'l visit it often and one day will bring her kids there :)))

My children attended a private pre-K and I think the school is as close to private as you can get. I love the fact that it is small, its facilities, the enrichment, that it is a choice school and it s onsite afterschool program. I have found the teachers approachable and caring. I have recommended the school to others who have been very happy they found this great school in brooklyn. I really enjoy the vast majority of the parents as well.

It s our second year with TAOTS and we can t stop raving about this school. We came from a totally different environment - district school with low standards of teaching and bulling. Since then my daughter s grades have significantly improved, and most importantly she feel at home in TAOTS. Kudos to all the teachers, great job!

My son is happier here than at any school he previously attended both public and private ($$$$$$). The teachers really understand students and give them a lot to process in a way that they're never bored! My son comes home with a heavy load of homework which he manages to complete rather quickly, because he understands it all. The campus is only 2 years old, bright and cheerful to provide children with a positive learning environment. My son is happy and never bored. Parents have a lot of input in to school curriculum and the school recently switched to Singapore Math method!

The teachers and the entire staff are absolutely wonderful. Everyone works together to make the entire program special for our children. The classes are fun, engaging and very different from the typical school programs. They put a lot into self discovery, personal talents and the arts. The teachers are always thinking about ways to challenge the kids. Most of all, the administration is always thinking of new and exciting things to do to make every moment of every day better.

I love PS682 because my daughter arrives and leaves school with a big smile everyday. Her teachers, Ms. Nguyen and Ms. Barton shower her and her classmates with care, attention and patience. As a mom I know exactly what my daughter is learning in each of her classes since I get curriculum updates every week that the teachers take the time to prepare each week. Also, the school is excellent in recruiting parents to volunteer in the classrooms and be really involved in their kids education, which is really the key to success in learning. Go PS682!

This is an amazing school. The facilities are beautiful and the teachers and administration are wonderful. In addition to reading, writing, and math, they incorporate technology and enrichment clusters which include music, dancing, theater, and cooking. Also, there is an after-school program located in the building for an additional fee.
