PS33 is a very good school for my daughter. Since my daughter was enrolled in this school two years ago, she has made rapid progress in class. The principal, teachers and staff are very kind. My daughter really enjoy her study here.

The Principal, admin staff and teachers at PS33 are exceptional. They have shown so much care for the children throughout the school year. My daughter has learned a lot while strengthening her love for learning. I cannot ask for more. She already cannot wait to be back in school.

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
