    "3 generations of my family have attended this school including myself. Currently my son attended Kindergarden and first grade. My son has improved in reading, writing and math. He speaks of new things learned all of the time. The teachers have upheld their standards. The teachers work hard and are creative in teaching and discipline. They are knowledgeable, respectful and willing to help children in this community which does not seem to be an easy task. Mrs. McGrath, Mrs. Louise, Mrs. Campfield are excellent teachers. The principle is always available for assistance."

    "I have two sons that attend this school. Wow, where do I start? The teachers are great and that is all that is good about this school. The students, particulary in the upper grades are out of control. The Principal is in denial about the gang activity in the school. The extracurricular activities is almost non-existant. Jersey City Public schools need to get it together. Next year they are combining PS8, PS6 & PS25 6th, 7th & 8th grades to Middle School 7. This will be a nightmare and I am very concerned about my sons safety."

    "I have two kids currently at this schools and I am not happy with the teachers at that schools. I have spoken to other parents and we all agree to it. This school does not offer any activities for the students. Many of the teachers are are new. This school is run by state of NJ. The way they teach the subjects, in particular the lower grades, are confusing the kids. I spoke to the assistant principal and told me, that's the way they teach in Australia. This is the USA not Australia. The kids come out of class very comfuse. The teachers give them all different subjects at the same time, therefore the kids never get a good crasp of each subject. I have a hard timr helping my kids with the school work. It is very difficult for them to really understand what they are trying to teach."

    "My son attends this school. I wish there was more of an outreach to parents via school events, flyers advertising the PTA etc."
