This school has improved a lot especially after the new principal is in charge. The principal of this school is very responsive and she cares about the kids and the school. My two kids go to this school. They're doing well and the teachers are excellent and understanding to what my kids need. The school does not tolerate bullies. My kids' progress and performance at school are all being tracked and discussed on every Parent Teacher conference meeting; we have received helpful feedbacks and interactions. The teachers know both of my kids' names although they don't necessarily go the other teachers' classes. My youngest one is still in Kindergarten and she has learned more from her class teacher about a good manner and being polite. I was surprised that she was sweeter and more polite nowadays, like naturally responding: "thank you" or "you are welcome". The school deserves more funding to support the kids and the teachers because sometimes the teachers and principal were willing to use/spend their own money to cover the costs of school supplies or building maintenance.
My child was accused of a behavior warranting his class being switched mid-year, yet when I tried to get a clear answer as to what really happened, I got vague responses, no administrator would take my calls and, like magic, records disappeared. .Even the school he transferred to could get no information for the reason his class was changed! He was also far below grade level and was promoted so that he would not affect the school's rating and therefore funding They should be ashamed of themselves for what they did to my child.
I have 2 children attending this school for the past 3 years. It is not the worst school, but not the best one either. It appears to me that this school is getting worse by the year I think of moving because of it.
I like this school both of my kids go there. It is a very nice school with educational fun days and programs for example: chorus, dance and etc.
This is a very good school. My older kid has gone through and younger is in right now.They have improved a lot in last 3 years. Academic programs has been increased. Other activities like sprots, music etc. Is really good. Overall it is good.
Good school. Crowed classrooms. Teachers are very motivated and generally care about the children's progress.
Well Im not a parent im a kid that loves that school. I went to this school from kindergarden to 5th grade and almost got elected for student president. Its a little school with a lot of education and trips. I love that school. steven montano.
I grew up in this area and went to a neighboring school, taught in this region, and had honor of teaching under the supervision of this Principal. He is awesome, and has once again turned a school around just like his other school. Kudos to PLD.
This is one of the many great public schools in Queens.Teachers her take their time to teach each student at different paces.The Priniciple is always having a fund raiser or a meeting each student. Students here have fun when they learn.
