My son is lucky to be in Pre k at this wonderful school. Mrs Leto is wonderful, and cares about the kids and always trying to better the school. Ms. weissbach is a fabulous teacher. My daughter went to this school when it first opened and we loved it, I wouldn't have wanted anything less for my son. Great school, excellent education.
AEA 303 is a wonderful school, filled with talented, dedicated, passionate, creative teachers and staff. It is a wonderful place for your children to grow and to be exposed to a variety of curriculum, with an emphasis on the arts. To top it off, it offers a wonderful state of the art after school program through Wingspan!
It's a fantastic school for my child with a healthy focus on all of the pre-school topics I want my child taught about. The teachers are also warm yet professional with special regards going to the Principle Ms. Leto. She has a tough demeanor yet engages all of the students with the kind of firm gentle tone I appreciate as a parent. Very much a recommended school.
Very hard working teachers. Very little funds, but parents make every effort and help out.
My daughter is a student and the school along with the teachers is a great benefit
The staff at this school go consistently above and beyond. The dedication they show towards the kids is beyond compare. Their is a sense of community in this small school that I have never seen before.
This school has an excelllent teaching staff and approach while promoting the arts and warmth and love to the children.
The school radiates creativity. The staff is passionate and talented, and the Principle is warm and driven to support the children get a great education.
I am a caretaker, my niece attends this school. They truly care about the kids, and the teachers are very caring and easily accessible for questions and advice. They have a varied curriculum that makes things interesting and holds the childrens' attention.
My daughter is one of the lucky ones who got in this school and when I say lucky I mean really lucky the school has all the attributes that one would send a child to a private school for its a new school with new infrastructure the school is only till third grade so there is very little chance of your child being bullied in school everyone including the principal knows each child by their first name the principal is very involved with school activities and takes great care to run the school efficiently all kids are bright because the teachers work hard and parents are also very active there is lot of emphasis on art and other extra curricular activity also the school has one of the best afterschool programs now my daughter is in Kindergarten and she is member of an enrichment club I think PS 303 is the best school in Queens
My daughter has been attending this school since pre-k (now she's in K). The curriculum is excellent, teachers are terrific, the principal has a great vision for the school future. The school environment is nice, clean, friendly and cozy.
AEA PS303Q: amazingly talented and dedicated teachers and staff; wonderful artistic ethos coupled with an inspired academic curriculum; still forging ahead despite the crippling budgetary cuts. my daughter loves it there, and i'm proud that the NY public school system can still incorporate creative educational gems like this.
Love the teachers, the whole staff is dedicated and helpful. We love the school
This is a small school with a strong emphasis on the role of the arts in developing the whole child. The teachers are wonderful : competent and ENTHUSIASTIC as is the principal. A gem of a school!
We love the school because the principle & staff are simply the best! We love Mrs. Leto!
