The teachers are wonderful at this school, truly dedicated. The problem is the principal she screams at parents, completely tactless, and does not have patience with young children. Besides the leadership, the school is great.
This school should not be a school....its ridiculously small for the grades they plan to open.....teachers are great but the ALL office staff is utterly incompetent....if your looking for a school for a child of special needs this is not the place for you...not to mention the principal is condescending and unprofessional
P.S. 273 is an exceptional school due to the outstanding leadership of the Principal Brenda Ward. I am a parent and an educator, I have seen first hand what it takes to really put the needs of children first. Ms. Ward exemplifies the characteristics our children should learn and be proud of. I am beyond happy and excited to have my child in her school. Where children really do come first academically, socially and emotionally. Thank you Ms. Ward and the amazing staff of P.S. 273. Keep on doing what your doing.
ps 273 I must say this is a good school. The major complaint is the principal. She is rude and obnoxious. She speaks to parents innapropriatly and is very unprofessional. Some parents are considering removing their children from the school because of her. The school would be an a+ if she would leave or change her attitude.
My daughter attends kindergarten at PS273. I love it! The staff is exceptional. The children are learning and doing things you wouldn't have imagined. The principal Brenda Ward believes in the children and is dedicated to what she does and has chosen staff who feels the same. Proud to be a 273parent!
