I can't disagree more with the two negative reviews below. We are very pleased with this school so far. This is my daughters second year here. She came in the 4th grade and the teachers and faculty were very welcoming and nurturing. They are very involved. They actually call me with updates on my daughters progress. The environment is safe and the PTA is very dedicated (although like most PTA's they would benefit from more parents getting actively involved.) If you plan on driving your child there is traffic congestion but that is just because of the circular drive and lack of parking so you need to plan a few extra minutes into your schedule. The school has petitioned for a parking lot but its not in the city budget at this time. This school is a hidden gem and very family oriented. I would highly recommend it.

Terrible school I can't wait for my daughter to leave this school and the staff and the principals are rude and disrespectful the staff needs to be trained on how to handle kids and the assistant principal needs to listen to children's views on things instead of thinking the adults always right I hope when my daughter leaves the school can be fixed to how it was when former principal Davis was there.

Never send your child to this school. Between pre-k and 1st grade your child will get more dedicated and professional teachers. After 1st grade... forget it! Especially in terms of middle school. Mr. Rowitt is the best teacher, otherwise your child will NOT get what he/she needs unless he/she is extremely independent. It was a huge loss for School 30 when Principal K. Davis was sent to PS 24 to clean things up there. PS 30 is over populated, no lockers for middle school age kids (they still use cubbies), Children have been known to be yelled at and pulled into meetings with administration without parents being informed. The list goes on. Warning... Do not send your child here. From, Parents who know first hand

My kids have been studying in school 30 since 2011. It is a great school and safe for the kids. The teachers are wonderful and hardworking towards the progress of students. The Principal Mr. Sayegh is a symbol of leadership. He always make sure that all conflicts and issues among students especially the middle school students' are solved promptly without any delay. He is also very serious about the studies of all the students of school 30.

My child was lucky to have an excellent 1st grade teacher, who was amazing and caring. Unfortunately I can't say the same about the principal leadership.

My daughter has been attending School 30, Yonkers since Kindergarten. She's in the 3rd grade. The teachers are terrific and tough. The principal Ms. Davis, well lets just say she doesn't stand up for the teachers. When it comes to bullying, the school gets no stars from me. My daughter is being bullied by a student in her class and still it continues. Nothing is being done with the countless complaints. Ms. Davis is the worst principal school 30 could ever have. She supports the bullied child instead of the victim. Which is a shame.

I really recomend school 30. My son had Mrs. Ansalone as a prek teacher she is an amazing teacher who really loves what she does and adores the children as if they were her own, Unfortunately, she retired at the end of this year. My son really has had a good experience in the school. Excellent PTA and the principal is nice as well.

My daughter has been attending school 30, yonkers for her 2nd year. The only thing that I don't care for in the school, is school notification. For instance School concert scheduled for Thursday, a phone call from the principal comes on Sunday, night. How can working parents find a black shirt /pants and which shirt. If they have to work and have no time at night? I find that notification is off centered and more catered to stay at home parents. in September 2010, the school goes to 6th grade. which means no library or art classrooms. The school has 3 classes rooms for Pre-kindergartens, Kindergartens and first graders. Then from 2nd grades and up are only 2 classrooms, which will now house about 30 children each class. I think this is crazy on teaching and structure. The teachers are great and the principal needs some socialized skills.

Great school. Very much family oriented. The kids do many activities where the parents as well as the teachers interact. The children enjoy physical activity on a daily basis since there is a playground right on school premises. All this adds up to a pleasant learning environment for children to learn. The teachers try their best to having the parents become involved in their child educational setting.

It is a wonderful school. I have no complaints at all. My child does very well and brings me all # 3. I cant forget the staff members they are great. The principal is the most humble caring person i have ever met as a Principal.I would recommend this school to any parent.
