    "A great school that encourages a love of learning! The school also does teach conflict resolution skills. And makes kids feel good about being themselves. I highly recommend this school!"

    "We LOVE PS1! Our family has been part of the community for many, many years and we couldn't be happier. The teachers and staff are the most caring and thoughtful people my son will ever encounter. We are very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful place that teaches the love of learning and honors every child for the learner they are."

    "This school does not have an anti-bullying policy. They will not notify the parents of the bully -- especially if they are major donors. There is a lot of social exclusion, screaming, hitting, etc. When a child is bullied they blame the victim. Academics? Forget about it. Your child will lag in math without extreme supplementation. Concepts are important, but without fluency, there is no balance. The principal is a megalomaniac, who is uninviting. A school psych has been hired, so that he doesn't have to deal with parents. You've been warned. The writing program is great, though."

    "A fabulous education of the whole child that leads to confident, internally-motivated learners. We have one graduate (now THRIVING in private middle school) and one third-grader still enrolled. This is a school for people who believe in progressive education and who aren't hysterical "helicopter parents" who want to see constant test scores and grades. If you're the type who wants your child to be constantly singled out for how wonderful s/he is, this is NOT the school for you--every child is respected as an outstanding, (individual!) human being in this environment. Great parents, committed faculty and staff, handsome physical space."

    "This school has earned the nickname Public screaming #1 - their "philosophy" does not mandate any monitoring of the screamers on the playground much to the chagrin of their neighbors there. No abatement of the screamers has caused neighbors to respond with some desperate antics including playback recordings of the screamers during recess hours & outbursts from neighbors aimed at the children. A lawsuit is in the works. What was billed as a "meditation area" has turned into a free for all for aggressive screaming kids, during school hours, after school programs, & holiday "camps". The owner of the school is making $$ at $25,000 plus per kid, is in expansion mode yet is befuddled as to how to reign in unruly kids & create a space for peaceful co-existance with his neighbors. Sound proofing options have been shunned as has the philosophy that loud noises are not polite & can disturb others. PS1 has made no move to create a space that serves the neighborhood ; as a mother of an educator there is a shocking lack of ethics and brains in this regard which is not in the least bit normal protocol in education. It certainly would make me wonder where else this school drops the ball."
