This school sucks!! The teachers do not communicate with the parents, Some of them don't care, my child has experienced racism and the administration did nothing to help. This is not a learning environment and the guidance counselor does not counsel or help the students. Instead he allows the students to play computer games as he converses on the phone and while class is in session. The principal is not visible and he's a push over. The teachers need to go to more teacher trainings. Some of the teachers require refresher courses. Just a bad school overall. Glad my kid got out of there. My child is now thriving and doing well in his new school
My 2 daughters attend this school, the teachers they've had have been GREAT however I dislike the courtesy in the Main Office, they should be more friendly and also the Lunch ladies I get a lot of complaints they are just to mean and should really work on their acts and on how they speak to the younger kids...Other than that it's an overall good school...P.S. Mrs.porter, Mrs. Batino, and Mrs. Anoushian GREAT GREAT TEACHERS!!! Love how they communicate with the parents and the love they put in their students, these are the kind of Teachers we need more of.
I have a child that attends this school. The security guards are very friendly. Whereas if you re in the main office, it s hard to get help and no one is friendly it should be a friendly environment. It won t kill them to smile and be friendly. Same as when you re calling! Calling is even worse!!!! The teachers are OK. This year my child seem to have a strong teacher. However teachers are being graded now! She's a real pusher and very easy to talk to. As last year it was the opposite. Lunchroom aids need to be a bit more friendly and approachable to the little ones!
Ps 33 is the best school in the area, my both sons went to this school.My younger one is still going to ps 33 .He is in 2nd grade and my older one graduated from this school last year in 5th grade .The teachers and whole staff is very co-operative and informative they give all the parents advise about the education .
This is the best school in the world and best of all my kid is happy there.
this school is, just breathtaking! In this school, i have learned a lot! And what made it more fun more is that they designed a new park that our community is welcome to use anytime we want to!
This comment is for the parent concerned about the safety. I am an out of state parent and have tried to call the school to contact my child and they absolutely refused to give me any information about my child. I was very frustrated but at the same time I understand the security risks involved. That being said the after school pick up is a security risk itself.
this is gem hidden in queens village. Teachers are experienced,dynamic and caring. Both my children had great experiences here. The PTA has been extremely helpful, motivated and dedicated and have made themselves easily available for all questions, concerns and opinions.
I definitely give a thumbs up to this magnificent school. All of my 4 children attended this school, my daughter is in the 4th grade. The academic structure, and music program is great! Teachers here make sure that the childrens are getting the best education possible, and give it their all to enforce that in a positive, bright environment. New teachers are also making sure that our childrens have within themselves confidence, and all the support they need to become great citizens. I applaud the teachers, parent organizations, and the leaders, principles, and assistant principles of this school for a great job. I love the 'student of the Month' awards, where the children are recognized for the superb work and participation in their class.
I have no problem with the curriculum. I am however concerned with the safety of my child.
I went to this school and I loved it. The academic programs are great. Some examples are: TAG (Talented and Gifted) and Scan-Tek. In TAG, you do arts and crafts, like designing a board game for 2nd graders or writing a short story of your own. In Scan-Tek, you build things and use the computers. You learn about technology and science, both connected to each other. There is also art in the school where you learn about pointillism and Picasso and other things. There is also music (including a chorus and a band and orchestra) where you get to play different kinds of instruments such as the flute, violin, guitar, saxophone and many others. Parents are also involved in the school. There are a lot of PTA meetings and parent teacher conferences, too.
parent involvement is great. School is overcrowded,poor educational support, poor service from administration.
