I am a parent at 51 and love the school. Everyone is working very hard to make sure each child's needs are met and the math common core presentation for parents understanding was excellent. The arts and music program led by those teachers is simply outstanding. My child is playing 2 instruments, reading ...  Read more

The new building is beautiful and staff and student moral has definitely improved since returning to Hells Kitchen. My child is very happy and enjoys school. Administration does not always communicate and seem welcoming to solving problems with parents. The best teacher is the music teacher! She really ...  Read more

PS 51 is a great school with quality, caring teachers. I have always felt welcome and appreciated by the administration and staff. I've seen the rigorous work the students do (it is especially apparent in the many art and music presentations throughout the year). The many ensembles and afterschool enrichment ...  Read more

As a teacher at PS 51 (of 5 years), I feel proud- and blessed- to work beside such dedicated and talented educators. I have witnessed first hand the hundreds (literally) of hours spent developing the new rigorous curriculum that is closely aligned with the common core standards for all grades. Teachers ...  Read more

A relatively small school; staff know all children by names. My child has never felt unwelcome or bullied here - in fact, the school has a character education and other programs to help children treat each other with respect! Never heard staff "shouting" at children (unless in the crowded and noisy ...  Read more

While the school administrators are rather unfriendly and very hard to reach, my child had a great relationship with his teachers, especially the music and art instructors. The overall level, however, is rather mediocre and the children don't get enough opportunities to learn beyond the very basics. ...  Read more

This school's has went downhill in the past 3 years. I can count the good teachers with one hand. This kind of school is not suited for bright children. My child has become bored with the curriculum it's far too easy. The level of education is far below average. I believe once the renovating began last ...  Read more

Communication from school to parents is virtually non-existent. During Hurricane Sandy we did not receive a single email from the school for the entire two weeks. The website is useless, there is also no communication with parents as to when to expect their children to be home. There have been several ...  Read more

Very poor teaching quality compared to other PS in the neighborhood. School seems very poor, begging for donation every other week. Always asks for parent volunteers, without tightening children's security. Parents definitely need to work with children after school, you can't just rely on teachers at ...  Read more

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 goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
