    "PS 6 is an excellent elementary school. The teachers are among the best. The parents are involved. And the PTA is a powerhouse. Fund raising is strong here, but if it weren't the school wouldn't have the extensive resources it does. The only pressure I feel to give to the school comes from my own sense of obligation. My children are getting a great education, better than many private elementary schools. And that takes donations from the parent body. I get it. Test scores at the school dropped, as they did at most if not all other schools because the DOE changed the tests. So school test prep across the city was off. You'll see scores go up again next year as the schools and kids get more savvy about the new tests. This of course begs the testing accuracy question, but that's a conversation for a different time and place."

    "What happened to the test scores for this school? Went from 90+% to 70%?? Does anyone know what caused this? Thanks!"

    "Thanks for the frank and insightful comments. Very helpful. I'm a parent who is considering buying a property in this school zone but am a bit concern about the constant fundraising mentioned in lots of comments. Could someone please let me know how much the parents "donate" each week on average? Thanks!"

    "PS6 is a machine - Very bureaucratic. Hence it's lack of ability to stretch and add value as it struggles with DOE frameworks that can be counterproductive. A solid safe education yes - an excellent challenging education definitely not. You kind of get what you pay for (literally as majority of 4/5th grade are privately tutored so who gets credit) it is also a political player (staff and PTA alike) Have 3 kids there and asked for money almost weekly (very pushy and for large sums thousands plus). There are many assumptions made about status of those able to live in most expensive NYC real estate! We try and support but it does feel like they're wannabe private (staff and a lot of parents) even pressured requests for money for frontline teaching which we found wrong on principle. You won't be surprised pleasantly or other, get what says on tin, and if you use private tutors etc may just get into east side middle"

    "PS 6 has truly lived up to its lofty reputation. It has the characteristics expected of a high-performing school: high standards for students, good communication with parents, positive attitudes from faculty, and a PTA that is a fundraising machine. Meetings with teacher/principal are both child-centered, data-driven and very productive. I'm not a PTA member or someone who is always at the school. I'm just baffled by some of the below criticisms. We pay a fortune to send our daughter to a private high school in the neighborhood, and PS 6 is just as impressive as that school."
