Open Quote My fourth grader came to this school half way through kindergarten after having a bad experience at Success Academy. We hadn't heard great things about 51, so we were pleasantly surprised by it's wonderful and dedicated teachers. The school is supportive of all types of learners and truly celebrates diverse cultures. The test scores and rating on this site do not reflect the high-quality education that my son is receiving. The school values true education, not just test prep. My son's state tests scores were excellent and he's very involved in the many free after school activities like Science Club, Orhestra, Chorus!
We couldn't be happier.

Open Quote P.S.51 is a unique small school in the heart of Manhattan, characterized by its diversity, motivated by the ideal of a holistic education that integrates the arts into the process of learning, allowing the students to excel academically as well as creatively and emotionally. This focus on arts education would not be possible without the strong commitment and leadership of Principal Nancy Sing-Bock. P.S.51 was recognized by the Department of Education as having a stellar arts education program. P.S.51 was also named an Outstanding School by The Blackboard Awards, achievements that show how much we are all committed to the success of each student at our school. My oldest daughter has already graduated from P.S.51 and my youngest daughter will be attending 4th grade in September. This is by far the best primary public school in our neighborhood.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
