This is an exceptional school. The teachers are very engaged with the children and they really go out of their way to make learning a fun experience. The school promoted kindness to others and it really shows in how the children treat each other. My daughter has gone on at lest 4 field trips that compliment her in-class learning. We feel lucky to attend this great school.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
I think it's a mixed bag, some of the teaches are terrific and some are not as good.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
In the lower grades there was too much given, but the fourth grade seems right.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
I think the school could do better in teaching the students empathy towards their fellow students.




- a
The school is small, which is some ways is great because it fosters a close community. But in other ways it hurts the school in that there are 32 students in my daughter's class, which is too many, and they don't have enough of an outdoor area for recess.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Homework is a joke. It is busy work. The school is also in the stone age. Nothing is online. Homework is handed out on flyers. If you like flyers MNS is for you, the kids backpacks will be filled with flyers since this place has never heard of a website.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
It doesn't develop honesty, integrity or fairness. It is petty, small minded, and comically self important.




- a
This is not a good school any more. The facilities are run down and over crowded. Kids are packed in like sardines. Teachers deal with overcrowded classes. Most teachers Ive met are short tempered and insensitive probably due to the poor conditions. It is living on the reputation of yesteryear that ended with the Dinkins Administration. Gym class takes place on the street. The place is literally bursting at the seams. The PTA raises money but even expensive perfume can't cover this stench.
