  • Over all, I was not happy with PS 3K. I am sorry I didn't transfer my child! I wish I could erase this part of my child's life from the memory! The students are hostile and disruptive. Visit the school during LUNCH BREAK!

  • P.S. 3 is a wonderful school with good principles to learning. They have a strong science and arts department which is very good. The teachers in P.S. 3 are very caring and take there job seriously.
    Mrs. Beecher has a good Mantra when it comes to her philosophy of getting a good education and respecting your fellow student body. Both my children attend here and have excelled in there work and really enjoy there teachers. P.S. 3 is also extremely multicultural with students from many parts of the world.
    I am an educator in the NYC public schools and I give P.S. 3 a very good grade for all that they do. A

  • I went to P.S. 3 from grades 1 through 6. There were some great teachers back then but there were too many gangs. Thank God for the Great teachers. I hope the school is doing well at this time. I went to P.S. 3 in the early fifties.
