My mother went to this school in the 60's (on Butler st), My sister, my mother and myself attended this school in the 80's and now my two boys go to this school. The principal is great, staff are wonderful and teachers really take the time out to speak with parents regarding any concerns or just to say how wonderful their child is. I hope one day my grandchildren could attend this school.
Our son is in the French Dual Language Kindergarten class at PS 133. We are extremely happy with the school as a whole and with his teacher. Our son is excited to go to school every day. The principal Ms. Foster-Mann is dedicated to creating an open, warm and collaborative environment. The parents at PS 133 are very involved in their own class rooms as well as in the enthusiastic PTA. Our experience with PS 133 has been wonderful. We feel very fortunate to be a part of the PS 133 family.
Finding a public school can be a long and arduous challenge, especially in District 13. Was PS133 our first choice? Honestly it wasn't. Are we glad we are part of such a warm, enthusiastic and supportive community of parents, teachers and staff? Absolutely! Our son is learning rapidly, is having his horizons broadened with the wonderful enrichment programs and is excited and happy everyday he goes to school. PS133 is on the road to being one of the finest and happiest schools in District 13 and we are thrilled to be part of the community.
Our child started in the new dual language program at PS133 this year. It's a fantastic class with an engaging teacher, a dynamic principal and very committed parents. A happy, warm environment and our child loves going there every day.
My child loves her teachers, and friends at PS 133. She comes home happy everyday, and I wouldn't put her in any other school. They are in a beautiful school building, and provide many hands on learning events. Parents are a big part of their child's learning experience. I would recommend this school to any parent looking for a great elementary school.
Students at 133 are well rounded and happy. The staff are easy to talk to and are willing to go above and beyond their regular duties.
PS 133 is a forward thinking school. It offer students differeintiated instrution and a wide range of extracurricular activities. It is deeply involved in the science, social studies and the arts. Students leave there having learned several instrument and a plethora of interpersonal, intellectual and social skills.
I have to say that PS 133 is a very good school for my daughter. She transferred there from her previous PS9, which is very big. PS 133 is a small school, and the curriculum is like a private school setting. The teachers are very in tune with their students, as well as other students in different classes. The children get personal attention to their academic needs, by after-school programs offered. The parent involvement is very high. The PTA and the parent coordinator really work together to providing many enrichment events for parents and students as well.
