The school teachers at this school are awful. They don't know how to relate to children. If a kid that has a bit of difficulty or gets distracted for a second in their classes they recommend or imply that something is wrong with your child. My child is in a gifted and talented school now. If it would of been up to the inept teachers of PS1 their laziness and stupidity my child would be in a especial ed class instead. Do not send your child to this school. The worse school ever!!!
the school is great the security officer is the best but need new secretary she is the worst and dont even bother trting to get to the principle because you cant get passed the mean secretary who thinks she owns the school
The parents are very much involved in day to day activity. The PTA is constantly motivating everyone in school and in our neighborhood to be involved with educating our kids inside and outside of school.
My three children are getting a great education and having a terrific time doing it!
Small classroom sizes, dedicated teachers who work with parents. Strong PTA and a principal who is in touch with the students and strives to do the best for PS 1 year after year.
ps 1 is a great school the staff goes above and beyond we get no help from the city because of the area we live in they think people with big houses have money but they dont please help our school win
What I love about P.S. 1 is personal touch the teachers give to the children. When my children come home from school I asked them in detail about their day at school. I like what I hear. From listening to my children I know the teachers at P.S. 1 really care about their students.
P.S. 1 is a wonderful, small school with highly skilled teachers and great support staff. It is a real community school, everything is done for the children. I feel good knowing my children are happy and thriving in such a nurturing environment.
I love PS 1 because I have 3 nieces that attend PS 1 and they are doing so well academically and it is because of the education and care they are receiving from PS 1. At the end of summer they are not upset that school is beginning, they can not wait to start. Thank you PS 1
They have great resources and kids are getting a great educatio here
PS1 is more than a school - it is a nurturing community of competent and compassionate professionals who exceed at their vocations every single day. The entire staff and PTA of the Tottenville school are extremely dedicated to the education and general well-being of the students. The school has a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation among the staff, students and parents. I feel very fortunate that my daughters belong to the PS1 family. Together we learn, together we grow....
Very concerned about education and children. A safe, happy learning environment.
I love that parents and teachers seem to really care about the school, it's education ratings, and how it affects its students.
It's a small school where all the teachers and faculty know everyone. My three children went there and had a wonderful experience and did very well education wise. That's why I'm voting for P.S.1
