I absolutely love this school, its a second home for my daughter. She has excelled in many areas and has become a model student. Love the family oriented environment and the fun activities planned for the kids. She has been a student there since kindergarten and is a fourth grader now, she says she cannot picture herself at another school. Go HOSTOS! Keep up the good work -Y. Barreto

My daughter started in Kindergarten and absolutely loves going to school. The teachers are great. Principals are wonderful and caring. Learning to read, write and speak Spanish are amazing to watch - how the kids who put forth the effort evolve. My daughter is adamant about reading, writing and speaking it so she gives it her all. Overall I don't have any complaints.

The administration and faculty are very nice and my son has been exposed to a lot of culture and language. My concern with the school is the overall organization and the funding. I do not believe my son is pushed above and beyond academically. And it being an urban school with limited space, there is no playground for the elementary students.

i love this school and so does my daugther she has been there for kinder, but went to pequnos pasos for pre-k, it was a smooth transition for her bc of the teaching enviroment. the class sizes are smlled and more focused on the students. my daugther is excited to be going to 1st gr this yr bc she will get to use her spanish skills more. she speaks fluently in both english and spanish but in this enviroment they encourage you to use spanish. i love the teachers and the staff, very well organized school they know all students by name, which says alot they care about the kids..

My daughter has been attending Hostos since Kinder, she is now going to the fourth grade and I love hostos. Staff is always available and willing. I want to keep her in the school until the 8th grade and if a high school is made with the same philosophy I will make sure to enroll her. I would recommend more activities like track,baseball,basketball, among others that will keep the kids motivated and busy. N.carr

my step-son is half african-american and half caucasion and in kindergarten when he entered into this school he did not know any spanish. and now he speaks fairly well and hopefully this will help him in the future to become a better person in life. to appreciate those of other race or religion and respect them as equals.
