My son started PK3 at Bethune in the Fall of 2012. We have been very happy with the commitment and level of caring of the teachers. We continue to be impressed by the level of warmth of all of the staff members. My son's Spanish language skills have grown tremendously.
I am very happy with MMB. My son started in PK3 in Fall 2011 and is now in PK4. We continue to have a great experience at MMB with the principal and teachers, educational and extracurricular activites, and are especially pleased with the spanish emersion program. My son enjoys going to school everyday and the I feel staff is enthusatic, responsive and caring to our family.
So far- I am very pleased with school. This would be the first year that my three children would be attending. I have met a few of the fall teachers that are teaching the summer program. The staff has been very welcoming, pleasant and helpful. My children are enrolled in the before and aftercare prgrams for the summer as well. They love it. The before/ aftercare program is like no other that I've been exposed to. I've learned that all three of my children are learning about similiar things but, of course, on different levels. I can't wait to see what the fall brings but I will be back to tell about it!!
This school has excellent teachers. When I walked through the building I took note of the care the staff has for the children. The graffiti was not on the school building as some one mistakenly stated earlier on this site. The ANC building had the graffiti. As a matter of fact Long and Foster and the school painted the surrounding wall to ensure there was no graffiti on the wall. The custodians clean outside daily. There is no trash outside the building. There is a wonderful garden.
The principal and administration are attentive and come with a can-do attitude. I am looking forward to working closely with the educators there in the upcoming year!
There is constantly trash around this school. I go out most weekends to clean up and by the next weekend the trash is back. Last summer there was graffiti on the playground building and despite my calls to the school, the principal did nothing. It took me calling the mayor's office to get it removed. The teachers and students just don't seem to care about their surroundings.
School has a diverse student and staff population, also one of the best curriculum.
