My husband and I are very disappointed with this school. The staff and administration is very unprofessional and disorganized. This school needs to be reviewed by authorities.

My daughter has attended the school since it opened. She began in pre- k and is now going to the third grade. Although I hear that there is a waiting list for this school...its not worth it. The principle is unprofessional, the staff could care less, the teachers doesn't seem fit to even teach these kids how to tie their shoes, and i don't like that they're not flexible to working parents. You're not able to check on your child and forget trying to contact the teacher or anyone else ...they never give the messages and no one ever contacts you. The only one who gets my praises is the asst. principle.

My son has been a student at 253 since 2007. The school is constantly going through changes and there is not enough positive communication among/between staff. Notices are not usually distributed to all parents/caregivers on time or at all for that matter. Parents/caregivers are not welcome to visit the school or check on their child if they need to. Meetings are not scheduled efficiently scheduled for working parents. The Principal is not good with appointments; not for parents or even community organizations. The teachers seem stressed out and tone of the school is declining to uninviting

My son has attended this school since the 1st day it opened in 9/2004. The staff and school setting both live beyond my expectations as a devoted and concerned parent. My son was accepted to the Aster Gifted Program but due to his comfortabilty and my great approval with the school itself, I allowed him to continue his Elementary days at PS 253. Overall this school gets a complete 5 stars from my husband, myself and most of all my son. My four year old starts Pre-K in September.
