I have two daughters that I have in recent months transferred over to this school. I am very happy with the choice I have made for the both of them .. I have been able to see that the education they teach in all in schools is not the same and have learned that children will want to learn and go to school when they are happy mine are finally happy and love going to school every day now.. My youngest today will finally be getting all the services she needs to due to fast working staff ...

It is amazing how so many people wrote reviews on this website the exact same days- The reviews are fake, do not believe what these so called "parents" are saying. This the work of the employees trying to make the school look good.

I LOVE PS 34!! There are no words to express how grateful I am to have my two daughters attend PS 34. I actually transferred my daughter from a charter school to PS 34. That was the best decision I have ever made. The Principal is always outside greeting the parents and students. She makes me feel so welcome and I appreciate that. I can actually see how nurturing the teachers are with the students. Best of all, my daughters love going to school every morning. Keep up the good work PS 34!!

I worry about why there is all of a sudden a large response and everything is so positive. If everything is good then what is there to be so concerned about. I did not count how many replied in May but there is an immediate occurance. I rememebr my child not feeling good about having to be restricted to a disciplinary based style. I also remember another parent sharing the same concern. It was difficult for the children to be themselves without some sense of fear but this also seemed to be a variable in the dominating culture in the school and that takes place at home. I am familiar with this culture having grown up with it. I can't say it was the best but I feel the principal is caring. She does what she can given the building constraints but more creativy can allow for more inspired children. The Social Worker for the older students abusively handled a situation with a pre-k child at the school about four yers ago. I hope things have changed then. She should not be "handling" any children as far as I am concerned.

An excellent education in one-room schoolhouse/European style. The kids are innocent and well-behaved...which is very unusual for this media-soaked generation. People always ask me 'where does your kid go to school?' when they see his abilities AND his behavior. Few parents are affluent, but yet the principle/teachers/staff give a private school ed at public school prices. Tours of MoMA, Lincoln Center, and 1st grade Orchestra, etc.

I have 2 daughters one of them graduated and now is going into a great high school my other daughter is still in that school i really recomend this school for everyone if you want your child getting alot of education. If you have problems with picking up your child they have afterschool programs wich include a meal. My daughters and i are very satisfied with this school because when your child is graduating they will make sure your child gets inot a great middle school like IS 318 even though this school isnt in manhattan doesnt meen its bad. This is one of the best schools in NYC !

Zero tolerance for bullying, inclusive philosophy, students are driven to achieve at the highest level, great PTA and parental involvement. Small classes, cozy environment. Could use more art and music, but what else is new in NY public schools. Regardless, they do the best they can in that regard. My son is very happy at P.S. 34.

The school leadership is very receptive to the needs of the student population and is willing to create frameworks for every child to reach their potential, regardless of where they begin. In addition, the principal and assistant principal are always available when a parent has a concern.
