My son just started there for second grade and i am not pleased at all .They send home easy homework that he was doing in kindergarten . I am not pleased with the stories he tells me every night about how the lunch lady is very mean to him . Today my son mention to me that he drop his milk and the lunch lady scream at him in Spanish . My child ask if he can get another milk because he was still thirsty she said "no clean up now"..I am a single parent just trying to make ends meet now I'm going to have to take off work and speak to the school . This kind of behavior should not be going on and I am scared for my child safety . I'm am desperately trying to put my son back in his old school where it's children of all race and where they speak English .

My Daughtter attends PS 5. From the very 1st day of classes I was pleased with the teachers, my daughters safety while in school, and the discipline. Although my daughter has not been involved in any extra curricular activities just yet, I had the pleasure of seeing a holiday preformance that she and all of her classmates as well as teachers worked very hard on. I look forward to our future years with PS 5 as my son will begin Kindergarten there next year and my daughter will continue on.

This school is pretty descent. My son attends there for the past 4 yrs. He is now in the 3rd grade. Although the lunch lady is stern it is all for the best. Teachers are very good especially the science teacher. It is also a Children's aid society and contains many cool clubs for kids.
