I went to this school and now my kids attend it and it has great potential to be as wonderful as it used to be. Principal Wilson is a wretch of a woman but her staff and PTA are fantastic. Especially the aides at their Annex. Such loving caring women who genuinely care about the kids.

Mrs.Wilson (principal) by far lacks leadership and a big sense of urgency. When issues have been surfaced and you can finally get in contact with her, she seems to be interested but constantly denies that the issue can be happening or states that the issues is being magnified by the students. She is ...  Read more

This school has such great potential. The teachers are very caring, but are scared of the principal. The principal is unapproachable and always right, even if she is wrong. Her vice principal will tell you what you want to hear then tell the next parent what they want to hear. The principal has a ...  Read more

My experience was great with the Principal she gave me personal time and was very aware of my child's situation. My daughter loved all of her teachers, including her Para's. The ...  Read more

PS 3 is NOT the place to be. The teachers are wonderful and are the only saving grace about this school. The administration is horrible. They never return calls. You have to ambush them by surprise in person during the school day to get any kind of answers. They never have PTA meetings at night so working ...  Read more

My child is in the Gifted & Talented program. The score for this school is absurd and should be a lot lower. It is completely overcrowded due to the principal allowing special programs there despite the problem. The principal does not allow the kids to play outside at recess & have silent lunch due to ...  Read more

My child goes to PS3 and over all the teachers have been great. On the other hand the Principal and assistant principal have not been great at all. They pay no mind to parents concerns or safety of the students. The principal makes decisions on whims that are not in the best interest of the children., ...  Read more

I think the rating of this school is unjust. Wonderful and caring teachers. ECC has the best principal we could have hoped for - I did not have much interaction with principal from the main building though. The amount of activities done with kids is great. Have not met a teacher I did not like here. ...  Read more

PS3 is not what it seems to be ! Horrible treatment of your kid is quarantined! Anyone who works there can turn around and decide to tell your child what to do and how to do so,how he dressed and if you will try to bring it to the principle attention ,well,it will be all your fault ,because ,everyone ...  Read more

My son doesn't get off at his bus stop ..I go crazy looking for him for nearly an hour and find out that he got off at the main building for latchkey.. He doesn't belong there!!!! According to staff at the annex they thought he was on ...  Read more
