I couldn't be happier with this school. I feel like they are an extended family because the school environment is so caring and nurturing. The principal, Ms. Esposito and Vice Principal Mr. Reformato are truly amazing people. They are always around, whether I am dropping my daughter off in the morning or picking her up from Latchkey. Their incredible leadership extends to all the staff I have come in contact with. I consider myself truly lucky to have P.S. 53 be my kids' zoned school.
this school runs on bribe system u give bribe u get good grades in class,they favour certain people.
My daughter went there and it is a very good school. The teachers are really great there and are interested in the kids doing well.
There are quality teachers working in this school who care about their students and helping them to succeed. The faculty and staff make parents welcome and encourage parents to be an integral part of their child's experience at P.S. 53
I love PS 53 because not only is it considered one of the best elementary schools on SI but it is a warm and nurturing school as well. They care about their students. The office staff wonderful and easy to talk to. They have an amazing parent coordinator who is approachable, kind and caring. She goes out of her way to make each event at PS 53 spectacular. I am a graduate of PS 53 and I am so grateful my children have the privilege of graduating from their as well.
i love this school beacause their staff is wonderful and have given my children the extra help they needed with their academics with no questions asked.
I love this school because my son was put into a specific class to help him keep up with the work since he is a December baby. It's tough to keep up with the kids that are almost 1 year older than him. The teachers and staff really care about the kids.
It is a very family orientated enviroment. The entire staff makes it their job to know who the students are and their family memebers as well! The entire team is very proactive in the comunity and the lives of the children that they impact on a daily basis!
because it is clean, a nice group of kids go here, it has very good reports, alot of people and staff are very helpful.
The teachers focus on children's oveall academics and they do not teach to tests!! They are all friendly and willing to work with parents.
Entire school staff gets involved in making sure all children advance in their learning skills. The PTA is also very active in being in touch with school activites & issues.
Great school, need funds for extracurricular programs. Great Principal.
Great Staff, excellent learnibg enviorment, my child loves his school!
I LOVE P.S. 53 BECAUSE THEY ARE A VERY FRIENDLY/FAMILY ORIENTED SCHOOL AND I BELIEVE THEY DO A GREAT JOB WITH CARING AND TEACHING OUR CHILDREN.
Bay Terrace is a great school. The students and staff are wonderful.
