Open Quote My children were sent to Steele School after Milburn was closed down. We moved to the area specifically because we wanted our children to start elementary school at Milburn, although we assumed Steele wouldn't be so bad because many of our neighbors had gone there when they were children. Unfortunately, that is simply not the case. Ms. Presti (the Principal) seems to be more concerned with the "school and teachers" than with the actual students. I attended the orientation meeting for the incoming students with many parents and she stated (several times), that having a larger school with more students and teachers proved to be more effective for students than having smaller class sizes (which of course is moronic). We are constantly bombarded with paperwork for donations for the school and "extra" activities when the main goal should be getting the students to truly comprehend this new Core Curriculum. The school is ill prepared for emergencies and in depth teacher/parent meetings are not encouraged. There are a few bright stars at Steele School that are truly wonderful teachers. Other than a select few, the others could use some serious improvement. Our school taxes are through the roof and families are struggling to keep their children in good schools, but the Town of Hempstead continues to shut schools down. If my husband and I had the money, we would enroll them in a private school. I pray that we will be able to put our youngest child into a different elementary school when his time comes.

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.
