The teachers and staff all work very hard to make the students courteous, honest, and fair.. They will take the time to learn each student's name. They are amazing. I saw two teachers cry during my daughter's graduation. They get to know the kids and see them grow through the years.
The teachers are great and very supportive. My daughter attended this school from kindergarten to fifth grade. She graduated this year and received two awards. I couldn't be happier with the amount of attention and dedication the teachers provide their students. The classes are a bit large but the teachers definitely give them 110% of their attention. Not all children learn at the same pace and I love that they are split up into groups in class. My daughter was having trouble with division so I spent some time going over it. She went to school the next day and was able to explain division to the other students in her group. Working in these groups allows the kids to help each other, learn and practice together. Ms. Cooper is amazing. Thank you to all the teachers specially Ms. Warner, Ms. O'keeffe, Ms. Komisky, Ms. Chan, and Ms Viola. We thank you for all you do to help educate our children.
Principal Mrs Cooper is very Nice Dedicated and soft spoken and outstanding in her Profession and her Staff are very friendly and caring for students and parents. .My special thanks to New fourth grade Teacher Ms. Gokassey she is a Gem in crown, very good addition to school. she is very professional at the same time friendly with students her motivation and encouragement to my son proved very helpful in adjusting and learning with ease he learned a lot with enthusiasm and lot of interest, she has been very supporting to him throughout the academic year which made him a brilliant student. As a parent I wish her all the best in her career.Wish all teachers are like her. Thanks.Shaila
I would say the school is fine and the teachers are kind hearted. I understand that the kids are a lot in one class, but they are also human beings. Once you get to know them , you will like them. cafeteria is not the best but not bad either. Staff is ok. Parent coordinator is very nice. Principal is busy but nice. My son, took time to adjust but now he is happy.
My son just started kindergarten there and so far so good. I was a bit disappointed at the way they except kids in the morning as it's always a bit crazy. I think there should be a better way of receiving kids so parents can walk away confidant that a teacher has acknowledged each child.
I have attended this school around 6 years ago and i can freely say that i could have not asked for a better experience. Now, i cannot speak for how the school is running currently, but i will speak for how it was before ( if anything has changed.) Starting with the principal, yes. she is a bit stern, but it is better than being a complete push over. There were ALWAYS activities planned, such as the circus, nutritionist, ballroom dancing, school plays, spirit day, and various animals in the science lab. The teachers may seem as if they do not have time for everyone, but believe me, they are very kind hearted once you get to know me- after all- they deal with dozens of parents and students a day, they can't have a smile on their face 24/7. I must say, Mrs.Piansky and Mr.Nussbaum are the best teachers your child could ever have.
I am really pleased to see our school rating ,and it's truly disturbing to see rude,and harsh remarks. Parents get a grip ...we need to work together ,and no miracles are happening over night. As a parent for the past 3 years i feel very confident about our school. There is a great seance of collaboration between administration, teachers and parents. The teachers are excellent,well trained,creative and dedicated. MY child is learning in a very supportive environment. Yes classes are large, but that is a problem of all good public schools in the city.
