  • This school has changed dramatically. I see more art programs and performances. There is an extended day and after school program. It is a uniform school. The upper grade kids there have a lot more programs to be involved in. The lower grade students participate in multicultural festivities, award ceremonies & innovating trips. My children are looking forward to their trip to the theatre. Its a snow day in Ny and 202 is where they want to be! The teachers are so into these kids. Principal Gail Smith is on top. She is 200% involved. The homework that my children receive from Pre K through 4th grade is based on review and what they are working on in school. Its challenging for them and they like that because they get bored with work that is too easy. Its a welcoming school. My children enjoy it and so do I.
