PS 30 is a great school! My daughter has had wonderful teachers and is doing great in all her classes. She has learned alot. If you have questions or concerns the teachers and staff are very accomodating. The principal and AP are great. All the activities and fundraising events are also fun to be involved with. Bottom line, Great School!

simply as our old school motto stated "A Great Place to Grow" and now we use the motto " Leaping to the Top' since we have chosen a jaguar as our school mascot. The school is a very welcoming place to learn and grow. We cherish each child as if they were our own. We have made great strides in making our school a warm environment and THE PLACE to learn. We have a very dedicated staff and parent population. We are a multi generational school with a lot of parent involvment. Our Parents have monthly fndraisers supporting the school in each and every step of the way. We do not receive frederal funding as most others do so we work hard together to get what the children and staff need. We are very supportive to each other and work very hard day and night to make PS 30 tgthe place we call home!

This past yearsssss, PS30 isn't as good as it use to be. Is it due to change of principal?? And this year PS30 started Pre-K, throw the 4th and 5th grade outside the school yard in early cold morning till class start. Cold,windy,rain,snow or shine- it doesn't matter, poor kids be outside waiting due to school doesn't have enough space to put kids in before class start. So I don't understand why PS30 open for Pre-K since it doesn't have enough spacing for student to stay indoor!!!

The teachers are great. Especially the fine arts program... Music, performing arts and visual arts. Oh and the ballroom dancing teams and music memory teams continue to place when competing with other boroughs. Go P.S. 30!

My son has been attending PS 30 for three months now, and I absolutely love the school. I keep constant communications with his teacher, and we work hand-in-hand to ensure that he is where he is supposed to be in his educational barometer. My sons loves his teachers and is optimistic about going to school every day. I am sure that things will continue to get better.

PS 30 used to be a great school. Now classes are no longer tracked, school trips will be cut for 2009-2010, and there was almost a total ban on water bottles. Add to this the recent cut of 1 school nurse who will be serving more than 800 kids. Early pickup of your child for an appointment used to be a breeze, now you have to go back & forth between administrators. This school still has wonderful teachers and teacher aides, but there's too much that's gone downhill.

When my son entered the first grade I was concerned with the new principal and recent changes implemented. PS 30 has a good mix teachers and the new principal keeps herself visible and available to parents (a big plus). The children go on a couple of field trips for rounding out desk work. Afterschool activities are very sparse however with the current PTA burning midnight oil in improving the school for all kids some activites with other schools are available. The staff seem to be dedicated, which is why I reccommend this school.

When my daughter was entering the second grade I nervously made the transition from Catholic to Public school. It was the best decision I ever made. PS 30 has excellent teachers who never cease in their pursuit of academic excellence. They are all extremely dedicated professionals. The new principal is not of the same calibre as the former prinicpal, but the teachers have made up the difference. I would highly reccommend this school to anyone.
