Open Quote The school population consists of two different categories of students.
There are three sections in KG. Two are regular students and one is the Gifted and Talented Program.

G&T Admission is highly selective and prized, and is attaching brighter students and educated affluent parents, who see this as an excellent option to an expensive private school education.

The PTA is very active and is being supported primarily by contributions from the parents in the G&T Class. The flavor of the G&T is spreading though the school as is seen in the latest school rankings. The Principal and Teachers are very dedicated and the school should continue to move up to become one fo ther top elementary schools in the NYC school district. Close Quote

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.
