We've lived in this community for more than 20 years and have been fortunate enough to go to Van Ness Avenue Elementary.
We are 3 months in to my daughters kinder year, and it has been a joyous, exciting, positive experience. We were offered spots at 3 local charter schools in the area, but after seeing the direct, detrimental effects of these charters on the access and opportunities of students at Van Ness, we could not in good conscience not give Van Ness our full attention and involvement. “School Choice” has more to do with the challenges at this school than any teacher, principal, or policy. I encourage anyone within (and outside) the Van Ness boundary to come and check out the fantastic job Van Ness is doing in educating and caring for students, regardless of ability, color, or class. My daughter is happy, social, and enjoys learning and playing at Van Ness. Somos 3 meses en mi año kinder de las hijas, y ha sido una experiencia alegre, emocionante, positiva. Nos ofrecieron lugares en 3 escuelas chárter locales en la zona, pero después de ver los efectos directos y perjudiciales de estas cartas sobre el acceso y las oportunidades de los estudiantes en Van Ness, no podía en buena conciencia no dar a Van Ness toda nuestra atención y participación . "La elección de la escuela" tiene más que ver con los retos en esta escuela que cualquier maestro, director o política. Animo a cualquier persona dentro (y fuera) del límite de Van Ness a venir y comprobar hacia fuera el trabajo fantástico Van Ness está haciendo en educar y cuidar para los estudiantes, sin importar capacidad, color, o clase. Mi hija es feliz, social, y disfruta aprendiendo y jugando en Van Ness.
We've lived in larchmong for 10 years and our son started kindergarten this year at Van Ness elementary and it's been a wonderful experience. It's a small school with small class sizes which is so hard to find these days! His teacher is fantastic, as are all the others we've met! You know it's a great sign when your child tells you he's sad he has to leave school! Its been so much fun helping organize and participate in their new parent group P.AV.E with the support of some amazing parents and the new principle, as well as getting to know so many great neighborhood families along he way. Most of all I love that we get to walk him to and from school together. We feel so lucky to be a part of this incredible little neighborhood and that our local community school turned out to be such an undiscovered gem!
Van ness elementary school is the best!!All staff and teachers are frendly!They respect each student and parent!Thanks!!
