This is a school with ZERO discipline, the kids are allowed to run the asylum and often times bullying, foul language in classrooms, and poor behavior goes unpunished but not unnoticed.

5th graders district wide are tossed together. In spite of 4th grade portfolios and all the test data, class assignments look like they're based on drawing names from a hat. There are NO programs for gifted students: my child is bored, and has gone from being a voracious reader and a "model student" to hating school and counting the minutes and pages read every day. Don't get me started on math.This school fully deserves its state "focus school" status.The school district deserves to be sued for not offering an alternative.

The combination of deep budget cuts and lack of leadership by the principal, the teachers are challenged to do much more with much less. The environment is a stressed out one with many of the teachers in burn out mode (understandably). The facilities in the school are dated; paint chipping, water fountains don't work, playground equipment old and dangerous. Overcrowding a huge problem; kids crammed together at recess, kids eat lunch in auditorium. This school is a disaster top to bottom, but were are told the middle school is much better so we'll hang in there. If you can get your child into Catholic school for 5th and 6th grade, I would highly recommend it.

Teachers are friendly, the principal, along with the assistant principal are very involved, the school has a very strict set of rules (which though, not a lot of people follow - but shows the staff sets them right.) P.S.S also has a very unique rewards program, and also, special contests that improve student's vocabulary abilities, and also other special events that connect the school community together. It has tons of charm, and nice big classrooms. The curriculum has many interesting topics that your child could learn, and, I think that 5th and 6th Grade are very easy, compared to 7th grade and up, where you get tons of classes. Pulaski Street School's charm, friendly community, and wonderful staff make the school a great place to learn.

My children learned so much there and looked foward to going there everyday. The teachers and staff really conected with the students. They didn't just learn they loved learning. Now I have a grandson who will someday attend such a great school! I am proud of Pulaski Street School!
