I really hope that the woman that was screaming at everyone this morning is not the new parent coordinator. She did not make the first day of school welcoming at all. My daughter was scared to enter the school. Acting alittle more polite would have been better than screaming at a bunch of parents and children who were nervous as it was for their first day at school.
Great school !! excellent support !! Activities and academic !! Very good after school program. Lunch at not cost.
P.S. is a family !! My daughter loves to go there, they provide her the best care a mother can wish for !! Extra help with reading, with language, after school program, she loves to read now, I'm more than please with this school !!
Terrible. The school is built entirely on favoritism. In the school newspaper all the teacher's children are journalists. In addition, the school has an unfair election system. All the "cool" and "popular" kids win the election. When they win, the Council does NOTHING AT ALL. Its just a sign of popularity. The teaching is below average, I would say. In math, they explained things that my daughter knew since second grade. They forced her to use some models, rather than using formulas and equations, she says. "In science, we don't even have a TEXTBOOK", she says. In science class, she have been rendered a "Science genius", because she knew things that she is SUPPOSED to learn in that grade. Instead, the class was working on a 3rd grade level. Meanwhile, in PS 221, they have a textbook for every subject. Instead of spending money on better education, and adding a G&T program(They don't even have that), the school spends money on field trips that occur too often, and in my opinion, disrupt the learning process. This is my opinion about my daughter's school.
This is really an excellant school. The teachers are strict and they care at the same time. They are very on top of things.
Thi is a great school. My daughter enjoys going there. The teachers are very good.
P.S. 247 (A.K.A. The New York City College Partnership Elementary School) is a fantastic school with a dedicated, professional and highly skilled staff. They make every parent and student feel like they are part of a family. My children look forward to attending school every day!!!!
P.S 247 is the best!!!!! It's a place where you can learn but also have fun
My children have been at PS 247 for three years and we are very happy there. It is a small school with tremendous parent involvment. Everyone knows each other and there is a very caring and sensitive staff.Their academic standards are high and the schools grades rise every year.
All three of my children attended PS 247. I find that this school is A+ in educational quality. The principal is kind and compassionate. Her first priority is CHILDREN FIRST! The child is treated as a whole person and not just a tool for taking standardized tests. My children are better people for attending PS 247. They are excellent students in their schools of higher learning and know the meaning of a good education.
