My school is P.S. 34. I am a product of P.S. 34 and due to the caring and wonderful teachers (one in particular who is no longer there) I was able to attend an elite private school after graduating from P.S. 34. While this was many moons ago and my teachers have long since retired, the teachers and principal who are there now do an outstanding job as well. My son is now attending P.S. 34 and is doing magnificently. The parent involvement is strong and the teachers listen to us and welcome our input. I would, however, like to see an academically stronger after-care program. My son is very intelligent and I don't feel the program is influencing advancement. The children need to be encouraged to do more in order to prepare them for state exams and such which my son will be taking now in the third grade. I will however emphasize the fact that the teachers and principal do their very best to make sure each child is meeting the goals set forth for them. It was my son"s first year there last year and they made sure his transition was the smoothest possible. They quickly addressed any issues I had and i felt comfortable and confident. Good job, P.S. 34!

I am a former student and parent of a child who attends this school and there are a lot of changes. My main concern was with the addition of the 7th & 8th grades. I think it's a bit much for the younger grades.
