    "Our school is terrific! The academics are challenging in the best kind of way, the teachers and staff are extraordinarily dedicated, and the parent community works hard to support the school wherever it is needed. This is a school where community, innovation and independence are emphasized, and it shows in the confident, intelligent, curious and happy nature of the children who learn here. Couldn't be more pleased we chose PS 3!"

    "This school is creative, messy, and wonderful for kids who don't need a lot of structure."

    "PS3 is a potentially great school. Strong teachers (we have consistently had academically strong teachers, except in one year where the teacher was problematic and most parents in the class agreed), involved parents, and a real focus on arts and creativity. Yes, they teach to the test but the teachers are dedicated to injecting creativity into doing so and seem to be given a great deal of pedagogical flexibility. PS 3's Achilles heel, however, is that it does not deal very well with children who fall outside of a very narrow band of learning style. The school has exhibited a remarkable laziness when it comes to these kids. If they cannot snap them quickly into shape, the child is a "problem" beyond their capacity to deal with and PS 3 turns its back quickly on these kids. Relatedly, the school deals quite ineffectively with bullying behavior; it has no school wide educational program on bullying and has shown no willingness to devote the resources to a less chaotic recess/lunch environment that is truly a free for all where kids get hurt. A huge deficit in its educational program, and part of educating the whole child, is teaching kids how to relate to one another with respect."

    "Love PS3! We have 2 children currently attending and can't say enough about this school. The love and compassion from the staff and teachers is exactly what you want for your children. The teachers teach for learning not to take a test. The students want to be there, the teachers want to be there and even the parents too. The school is always open and excepting of parental help. Parental involvement is high. The extra classes supported by the PTA are incredible: dance, music, art, clay, computers, library, creative movement, swimming. This school includes everyone. They go out of their way to make you feel apart of the school. A gem."

    "I have two sons currently attending PS3, one in first grade and one in fourth. We have been at the school since my older son started kindergarten and we have had an absolutely wonderful experience. Their teachers are caring and kind, and super attentive to their individual needs. My boys are very different in temperament and learning styles, and both are thriving at the school. Their teachers this year have been amazing for the boys' development, socially, emotionally, and academically. The parent community and the administration are both wonderfully enthusiastic, welcoming, and easy going, and always have the children's best interests as top priority. Both my kids are becoming wonderful writers, and my older son's math skills are exceptional. In addition to the strong academics, they get to participate in so many wonderful arts activities - architecture studies of the Village, an Alvin Ailey dance program, playwriting workshop, and cooking with a professional chef, just to name a few. We really couldn't be happier with our children's primary education."
