Open Quote Our experience with our daughter who was in K last year was exceptional! Her teacher was above and beyond accessible, engaged/engaging, and highly trained! We couldn't have imagined our daughter's progress, especially in reading. The reading curriculum is comprehensive at the 30th Avenue School. Above all, the philosophy of the school of teaching the whole child was evident. Close Quote

Open Quote We have a first grader who has been at Q300 for two years and our experience has been extremely positive thus far. What I value most about the school is that the academics are rigorous but the approach is creative and individualized--instead of learning by rote or doing worksheets and drills, the kids are given open-ended and imaginative assignments, with lots of team and project-based work. There's also a serious emphasis on social emotional development and we have noticed a real difference in our daughter's confidence and problem-solving skills. Her teacher sends thorough emails at least weekly describing what the kids are learning and we have many opportunities to visit the classroom and get more involved. The PTA also does a lot to build community (always a challenge for a citywide school) and raises money for TAs and enrichments like music and architecture. All in all, we've been very pleased.

Open Quote Q300 has been a great school for my child in K. The K teacher we have this year is very committed and responsive to parents' concerns. The school is diverse racially and socioeconomically. Good balance between academics and socioemotional well being. Parental involvement at class workshops/events and in the PTA is high. Enrichments for K include mindfulness residency, music, visual arts, Spanish, and computer technology. Principal Bill is a strong, committed leader who will further improve and strengthen the school.

Open Quote The 30th Avenue school has been amazing thus far. It will be a full K-8 program in 2 years. The principal and teachers are wonderful, welcoming, and always willing to listen and help our children with any concerns we may have. They are prompt with responding to emails as well. The PTA has very strong involvement and we are grateful for their hard work to ensure our kids have amazing special classes, such as mindfulness, art, music, and dance. The kindergarten classes each have a teaching assistant as well, which is provided via PTA funds. The kids get to know each other across the grades and overall the school feels like a family. It's a gem and we feel so lucky to be a part of it. 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.
