Ps 372 The Children S School 5

Posted November 16, 2013

My son graduated last June, and I am so grateful he went here. My daughter is in the third grade, and loves it. Our principle is fantastic, always available to talk, and a strong facilitator for our school. The classes are bright, filled with art, and never over crowded. We had an event last night, and I was talking with a parent whose daughter went to a different school at first, a "good" school, and we both agreed that ALL kids should have this education model. My son was found to have a reading disorder in the 3rd grade and the services he was suppose to get where already in place, nothing had to change in his classroom routines. His education experience would have been much different if he had gone to any other school.

My son is in first grade and has had challenges in the past with frustration tolerance. We have seen him blossom and grow in the inclusion environment, and develop an empathy for his peers that he hasn't shown before. With four teachers (2 teachers, 2 paras) in the room, the staff is able to give the children the support they need. Mr. Artie, the principal, is great and very visible. We love The Children's School!

My daughter just started at PS 372 for 2nd grade this year. The communication I have received from this school in the first month and a half of school has been more than I have received in the entire past two years from her previous school. Her current teachers are wonderful. I am excited about the years to come.

My son just started Pre K and so far everything has been a positive experience. There are 4 teachers in his class therefore every child gets their needed attention. Parents at this school are very involved and stay connected thru emails. After School seems to be expensive compare to some public schools that offers it for free but they have financial assistance if you qualify. Staff are very helpful and friendly :)

If you are fortunate enough to get into this school it is pretty much as close to perfect as a New York Public School can get. There are 3-4 teachers to a class, they have gym or movement every day, the teachers are top rate, and the kids are all well prepared for exams and seem to get into great middle schools. The school is not over crowded, and the kids get access to computer labs, science rooms, art, dance, lego robotics. All the school events are well attended. The draw back is that it is not very diverse, which they are working on. The majority of the families are upper middle class and educated, and I wonder if parents who don't fit that description might feel a little left out.

Overall an excellent school, and outstanding model for inclusive education; there are 3 adults per class of 24 (2 teachers, 1 paraprofessional). Almost all teachers work very hard to insure that all children's needs are met-- in the same class, for some kids that means remedial work on phonemes, and for others, that means advanced literary topics. However, the Math curriculum does not allow much for customization according to child's ability. To address this, they have math groups (based on ability) in the upper grades, but for younger kids who excel in Math, they may not be challenged. Since this is an inclusion school, children with disabilities are in each classroom, so prospective families should be prepared to embrace inclusion.

The Children's School is amazing. The teachers, administrators and parents are all very committed to this school. A lot of emphasis is placed on individual childs' needs.
