I love this school. The staff is excellent with teaching the kids and showing they care. When I walk into the school it feels like you walking into a family member home. They always greet the parents with a smile .
You can see the Change in progress In your child every year and it’s goo because of the teachers and their leadership
We have been in the school since K 2017-2018. The whole year was phenomenal, great and unexpected experiences, pleasantly surprised by the performing arts program, and extra curriculars. They bring in dance companies like Dance Theater of Harlem and Alvin Ailey to teach kids and they put great shows. They offer Dance, Drama/Library, Art, Music, Technology. They have a lot of arts programs that no other school around has. The staff and teachers are amazing. This year 2018-2019 we are in first grade, things are a bit different. They were offering lunch dance and music clubs, twice a week for each of these. The dance classes/clubs made it so they had Dance 4 times a week in some form or another: the regular dance class, the Alvin Ailey residency, the twice a week dance club. The music club was supposed to teach the kids the recorder this year. Somehow that has been taken away a month into the year. The dance club was reduced to once a week. The gym teacher left and the remaining Health Teacher has to cover the whole school gym and health education. I never hear anything about gym from my kid. Funding issue? Even so, this school has a lot to offer and budgets and bureaucracy get the best of everyone everywhere, especially when we are talking about the DOE. The school does its best, but it feels like teachers need more support.All the staff are caring and loving, the Principal knows everybody by name, which is amazing to see at morning drop off. The PTA is great, they raise a lot of funds for even more extra curriculars, such as Asphalt Green, Bio Bus
I've only had positive experiences at PS234. The staff really care about the students. They bring enthusiasm and fun ideas in to the classroom. There are a lot of extra-curricular activities during the school day such as chess and singing clubs during lunch time. Only real downside in no afterschool program for the whole school (it's limited to the higher grades) but this comes down to a space issue. The performances are always phenomenal. And this year the school received grants to upgrade the auditorium and create a brand new dance studio! Test scores aren't great but I believe that is due to a lot of non-English speakers in the school. The school is very diverse and welcomes everyone. The PTA is very active and holds lots of events for all the students and families. Looking forward to my toddler joining the school eventually to join her big brother!
