All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

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 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.
