My son has had a wonderful year at PS 261. His teachers are kind, talented, hard working, and go above and beyond to provide the children with a fun, dynamic, and developmentally-appropriate learning environment. He has learned so much this year, and had fun doing it. Teachers actively seek out parent involvement. The parent community is likewise active, engaged, and friendly. I've also been very impressed with the students. The older kids generously accept the younger kids into their play, and really look out for them (on the playard after school). I think the school deserves at least some of the credit for the friendly, accepting students, since they emphasize social- emotional development along with academics. The joyful, controlled chaos on the beautiful playard after school is as close as my city kid will get to the free-range, kid-centric, suburban youth I experienced.

My son's teachers this year were amazing! Very dedicated and hard working. They really understand the needs of young children and try to incorporate movement and outside time into the day. My son loves science and music class as well. He's learned so much this years- knows all his numbers and letters, and had fun doing it.
