The principal of P.S. 253, the parent coordinator, the faculty and staff are absolutely amazing!! It is obvious in everything they do, that the children come first. It is an environment that I am proud to send my daughter to and I am extremely pleased with the nurturing and care displayed by the principal and her staff. This school is a gem!!
I am proud to be a graduate of this public school, which was many years ago. I came from a big family and had recently immigrated to United States. We came here with just our clothes on our backs. My experience at P.S. was tough but I took alot away from that. One specific teacher Mrs. Beatrice, who taught 5th graders, made a big difference in my life. She enlisted in me the importance of self confidence and that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Though they were not her exact words but it was hers actions and continous attention to each student as an individual that I still remember to this day. From that point I went onto graduate high school, complete my bachelor's degree, and then entered medical school. I completed my residency and am currently an emergency medicine physician. Thank you Mrs. Beatrice, where ever you are!!

my child has attended this school since 2004. she began attending after being inlisted in a private school for the 2 previous years and will now be graduating this summer (june 2008), and i must say this school has reached my every expectation!
My son attended Pre-K this school year (2006-2207). He had a dedicated, respectful and caring teacher. Our experience at this school has been wonderful. School staff understand parents concerns and address them accordingly.
I think that some teachers in this school are only there for money and they don't care about the kids. I don't like how they scream and yell at the 9-10 y.olds.
