In response to the young lady considering moving to Yonkers. First thing is, Yonkers is a school bus district. So, if you are living more than a mile or so from the school you are choosing for your child, you should be good with transportation. But, choose Pearls gifted. Keep in mind that your son needs to take an entrance exam, and I think you missed the sign up date to take that exam for the 2014/2015 school year. So, you might be stuck with putting him in another school for a year until you can have him all signed up for the test. Provided that he passes the test, Pearls is the only place to be!!! Now, living in Yonkers. Hmmm. You said that you have a son in college. No colleges in Yonkers! Mount Saint Vincent is right in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. It's right on the Yonkers border. Get the info on that school and take it from there. If you want to live in Yonkers, try the north or the east part of Yonkers, closer to the cross county shopping center or along that area. The great thing about Yonkers is that transportation is very easy and Yonkers is central to many areas. Don't live in 10701, 10705, part of 10704, and a small part of 10703. And, be careful of police!

Greetings Everyone! I've been reading everyone's comments and all have been helpful, although I have been getting mixed singles with some postings. But I'm thinking of relocating to Yonkers and I'm a bit unfamiliar with choosing the right, safe neighborhoods for my two boys and not to mention I'm a bit limited because I don't have a car. I'm looking for low income rental so I figured I would base majority of my apartment search on or near a good middle school, although I have one child in college and the other in middle (nuts)..But how is the living area around Pearls Hawthorn school or any neighboring schools? And if anyone know if colleges are near as well that would be great as well.. Any suggestions or resources are welcome...

My Son started in this school in September. He is so happy & he really has the best teacher, Muss Warrens. She is always advising us, and reminding us of events & homework etc. she is very funny tok which really helps the kids enjoy school & learning. I just came back from a brilliant Halloween Parade. So well organized, i was very impressed. The staff are always so helpful & friendly & the security is fantastic. Love love this school. Thank you Pearls for all you do for my son & the kids.

I am so happy that my kids are attending this school. You hear such terrible things about the Yonkers schools, but this is a real glimmer of hope. It's not perfect and there are always budgetary constraints- but for a pubic school in a highly urban area, it's fabulous. Love the teachers, love the diversity of the students. Do wish it were more progressive and they did not worry so much about tests, but this is the world we live in now.

Pearls is a good school. My daughters are happy and I feel secure when I drop them off at school that they are safe. My kids complain about the school rules but I know that it is for their own good. Hopefully we wouldn't have anymore budget cuts because nothing should be Cut when it comes to Education. Our childrens' education should be Top Priority since they are the Future.

I think Pearl School is not somewhere your child should be going, nor to use the GT program they offer. I do not think it offers a safe environment for any child because of the unfortunate locale.

Pretty good school, I've been going there since kindergarten and it WAS FUN and there use to be many activities to do such as cheer leading and different sports but because of the economy they are no longer there but I do appreciate that they have devolved a sports club... But as I got older different principals and more rules were created, and some are are just unnessiary and mean, we aren't allowed to sit with our friends during lunch and since I'm in the upper grades there is no recess so I practically never get to talk to my friends , thought they are many unruly rules and etc., I would suggest the school because it's fun once you gets use to the rules and I would continue going until 8th grade.

am the grandparent of a second grader at Pearls. I think that Pearls is a very good school, however, I am very unhappy that last year and this year the school hours have changed. I am not happy with the fact that my 7 year old grandson has to get up at 5:00 AM everyday to go to school, get on the school bus and travel at least 45 minutes to get to school. I think that this is too much for a 7 year old. What do you think?


Posted October 28, 2012

Came in with mixed feelings since I heard so much about budget cuts and how they allegedly destroyed this school. The School is great so far. The Pearls PTA is amazing!!! I can't believe all of the things they do for this school. My child is in preschool and the administrators that I've dealt with have been good so far.

My two daughters attend PEARLS and its a fabulous school with very caring teachers and an active PTA. Only regret is that even with gifted and talented program the most gifted still get a bit left behind as they have to follow the NYS program.

I have been at this school for several years. In a district the size of Yonkers, you really need to compare individual schools to that of districts that you believe are "good" school districts. That said, this school is the only one in the district that competes well in all aspects with those in districts like Scarsdale and Bronxville and is better in some ways than Tuckahoe. Also, the Parent Involvement and PTA involvement along with dedicated administrators and staff make this school a phenomenal place to be! So glad we are here, wouldn't change it for anything!

This is the best public school that Yonkers has to offer. Unfortunately, they are so busy teaching to the test that they completely overlook quality of life for the children. When the art and music programs were cut, it was the final straw for me. The archaic curriculum does not serve the students and the pen, paper, copy until its perfect method did not sit well with me. My son had a wonderful year in kindergarten but was miserable in first grade. Perfection was praised above creativity. Children are not allowed to interact all that much. They sit at their desks and do worksheets all day long. I loved the diversity and wish his current school had more but I felt like I had no choice. I pulled my son out in the middle of the year.

My daughter has been in the school for three years now. The programs are excellent, the teachers are good. The teachers work to bring every child on aboard not leaving anyone behind. And above all parent participation is amazing. This is a public school but run and managed like a private school. Kids are mostly well behaved. The curriculum could be challenging but if your kid is a rapid learner, this is a good place to provide educational activities and program to keep up and not slow them down.

The kids are smart and what not but my son learnt inappropriate language and many other bad things like new words which I will not say.

WOW! I have been at Pearls ever since Pre-K... I absolutely love it!! I have made many, many friends....... however, I think (I am in 6th grade) the sixth grade teachers give a little too much homework... But otherwise..... I think if you are moving ti a new school and you live or are planning to live in Yonkers, NY...definetly TRY and enroll your child/children into this wonderful school.


Posted September 9, 2010

I have lived here a long time and have had my children and know many parents of children in other Yonkers schools. The bottom line is that Pearls is absolutely the best choice for a Yonkers Public School Education, comparing to top rated nearby schools with much higher taxes.

This is an excellent school. I am very pleased with my childrens progress and appreciate having a public school like this available to my family. My kids both enjoy school and do not have any difficulties completing their assignments and juggling their extra curricular activites.

Being upset about an issue isn't the same as rating a school. This site is based on a rating system, one which parents look to in finding a good school for their child. The bottom line is that it's a fantastic school with an amazing staff and extremely bright children, regardless where they came from. That is what matters. Take your gripes up with the board of ED!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
