  • This is an excellent school! I enrolled my daughter, who was entering the 4th grade, in the September of 2010, after she had been in catholic school since the age of 3. I was always skeptical of public school but the minute I entered p.s 31 I felt like I was part of a family. My daughter has been left back due to a learning disability that catholic school could not, nor wanted to recognize. The day of classes my sister-in-law went to enroll my daughter in P.S. 31 because I had to work, the staff was so helpful, attentive, and warm, my sister-in-law had to excuse herself because she started to cry. Knowing all the obstacles we have had to try and get my daughter to enjoy school and retain information, and not feel like and outcast because no one understood that she " just didn't get it"(the school work), my sister-in-law was overcome with emotion. When I finally went to the school and sat down with the VP of special education, Ms. Stone it was like she was in my brain already thinking for me. She knew exactly what my daughter needed to excel, not just in P.S. 31, but for the rest of her academic career. As a small child my daughter hated school, she would come home and cry for hours during homework sessions; now she looks forward to attending school...she looks forward to learning. She even attends the after school program, which was full, but thanks to Mrs. Covington, the schools principal, she was able to secure a spot. I am very grateful to the staff at this school for helping my child to believe in herself and look forward to a promising academic future. My daughter loves her teachers Ms. Early and Ms. Bethurne (not sure if I spelled it right). I am so glad I made the switch from private to public (especially P.S. 31, and I wish I would have done this sooner.

  • P.S31 is a great school.It provides an after school program for your children.The principal cares abut the children and both the principal and the teachers(ex:the teacher of class 5-309)try to help the kids as indivisuals and as a group.
