This school is terrible! The NYC public school system should stop catering to foreigners and start charging foreigners for ESL classes. My child knows English, it should not be tax payer responsibility to pay for some foreigners child to speak English! Also the principal here is unorganized. The people who run the Pta here are snobs! Plus my child's teacher accused my daughter of losing a book that she returned to the teacher!
I have not experience other elementary school. However, I am very happy and proud of my sons progress at PS 31. It's a wonderful school. We have excellent caring teachers here who are very dedicate on their work. My boys are happy and enjoying school. PS 31 not only is an excellent school for academic. Each year, every class put together a show on stage from K-5. Plus, we have PS 31 recitals every month where students have a chance to shine their writing, music, and other talents in front of a small audience. The parents here are helpful and friendly too. I am please with all the things that are offered to my sons at PS 31.
There is nothing wrong with this School, or staff, The Principal, and support staff have addressed and resolved any and all issues brought to their attention. Should a situation or problem occur, the Principal is always available and will take the time to sit down with you and discuss your concerns. She is truly dedicated and will do whatever it takes to comfort you and your child. She sees to it that our children come first and foremost when additional help and/or resources are needed. This is our fourth year at PS 31Q, if there were any serious issues, concerns or problems do you think that we would keep both of our children in this School? This School has been recognized for providing quality Education that our children desparately need to move on in this complex world.
This is the first year of myson in this school and it has a lot of problems. They will not listen to the student and parents if there are complaints. The school always blames my son if there's a problem.
This is an excellent school, with a caring and nurturing staff. My child has thrived in this school and has been able to bring out the best in my child. My only complaint is the school needs a literacy coach and a stronger enrichment program, which will be able to bring our children to the next level.
