It is a great school. Principal, teachers, teacher assistants, admin. staffs, school community, they all work together for the best interest of the students. Students are well educated in the well-organized regular school programs combined with great extra curriculum programs. School size is ideal. The best k-8 school in NYC.
The school excels at academics and enrichments for the students. And is superb at communication.
PS334 The Anderson School, a school dedicated to the educational needs of highly gifted children is a New York City public school that is comprised of the most inspired and creative teachers and lead by a warm and dedicated principal who truly cares about the children. Being a NYC public school Anderson is subject to budgetary limitations but an amazing group of parents from all walks of life work together [and work hard!] to continually raise money and seek out grants to help make the difference between a merely good education and an extraordinary one. I'm so thrilled that my child is lucky enough to attend this wonderful school.
Anderson has a caring and supportive staff (including teachers and administrators), they are working hard in the academics, they provide additional activities and assistant teachers with an active PTA.
Having been an elementary school teacher in the public sector during the '60's, The Anderson School represents the perfect example and model of how public schools should be run throughout the country. Its education principles, creative achievements and high performance among its students populated with outstanding teachers, assistants, parents, staff and children is a joy and enrichment to the community at large. Unfortunately, the only drawback is that the requirements to attend are so competitive that only a small percentage of children are able to attend. To this end, this is why The Anderson School should be a model for other public schools around...it is an excellent example of 'Education Nation'.
It's an amazing place where the parents, administration and teachers all work together to create an inspiring learning environment for our kids.
The Anderson School offers high level of attention, accelerated curriculum, and a caring staff. The parent body is very active and involved. It is the number one we still live in New York City. My child is excited to go to school everyday.
Wonderful peer group, smart and caring teachers, warm and involved parents.
The Anderson School feels like one big academically motivated, caring family that promotes living a life of endless possibilities.
Enthusiastic and extremely competent staff, energetic and engaged parents, bright and curious kids. It all makes for a warm and vibrant school culture where the kids are excited to be.
The students and staff of The Anderson School are full of individuality, creativity, and uniqueness. The teachers are passionate and sensitive to all students and the students are given the space to grow and prosper into young adults.
The teachers are excellent. The kids are learning so much and having fun while doing it. The elementary science teacher is amazing.
I am in sixth grade, and have been in this school since kindergarten. I have had numerous oppurtunities to go to different schools, yet every year I come back to Anderson. Why? Anderson is a friendly community with great and creative teachers. Fun events and activities take place nearly every week, and the staff is great. The student council actually has an impact on the rest of the school, and every kid who goes, whether or not they like to admit it, and even if not for every class, looks forward to enjoying another day at school.
Anderson offers children an advanced academic program in grades K-8. The teachers are great; the curriculum is challenging. Students graduate from Anderson Middle School ready for any of the most challenging of high schools.
It is a small school but it is very advanced. As a alumni i can proudly say that it prepared me for high school very well. The small school creates an amazing learning environment and provides opportunities other schools can not.
Though this school is one of the very few schools in NYC that teaches at a higher level, the leadership is not supportive when there is a problem in the school and does not take appropriate action.
