Communication is horrible. If I want information I have to call the office. Half the time I call I'm placed on hold while they try to find out the answer. I'm talking about simple things like, are the kids allowed to wear costumes on Halloween. It's the day before Halloween, we should already know! I find the teachers I've dealt with to be the type that just want to clock in and clock out. I STRONGLY disagree with their policy of birthday celebrations for the young grades (no celebration at all for the older students). Grouping everyone together once a month and excluding parents is a horrible policy and does not make me or my child feel part of a school family. They hardly go on trips. They say their primary focus is education but the work my kid is doing is a joke. I am all for strong academics, which they lack anyway, but they're missing the mark with allowing parent involvement (except for the select few) as well as a whole world of educating children outside of reading from a text book.

this is an excellent school. I have my daughters here, and they love it. They are very ahead, according to the academic level. They have learned a lot. and I'm surprised at the work that they give, its incredible, but it well help them in the future. This is a small, warm and friendly school.

Good and safe school overall. There is a great family feel. My daughter is happy in the school and it feels like home.

This school is the epitomy of what can go wrong in a public school. Lazy and incapable administration and staff . The entire staff needs a lesson in manners and how to be true professionals, from the administration to the teachers to the school aides. At lunch time the aides all gather round and talk leaving the chidlren to fend for themselves in the mayhem of the cafeteria! They never take the children out to the playground during lunch. The staff is jaded and set in their ways.

PS 2 is a really good school. My son has been going there from kindergarten and he is entering 2nd grade this year. My son's kindergarten and first grade teachers were amazing. It is true they don't go on many trips which I hope will change this year but overall the school is definitely a good one and I am very pleased with my son's education experience so far.

I don't like Ps2Q it is not a good school in many ways. The principal doesn't pay any attention to special ed program there. He doesn't even greet special education parents or children. My son is enrolling the special education program in the school since 2007. The speech service is not good one either. The speech teachers too busy doing everything else but teaching lessons. They only do care about general ed population and don't pay any attention to special ed kids. They forget about the funding they get for special ed children in the school.
