    Primary Academy for Success. This data is very old. The average class size is much higher now and it more like 24 students. There are second grade classes there for the last 3 years. Irene Belden retired. Why is this information so old?

    I Love the fact that the Principal is very involved and gets to know the students and parents teachers are great and the way the teachers get involved with the students and the activities are great! Ms. Gomez is great with the students

    Great little school. I am very pleasantly surprised. Don't le t the location fool you. Having only Pre-K to 1st grade is the best. It allows students to grow at their own pace without the distractions of older students. Ms. Fleishman is great!!! Very parent/staff/teacher oriented.

    I think this school has a very good program for pre-schoolers. Recomended teacher(Ms. Dolinsky) very good very patient one to one. She teaches them so much and they learn it fast. By the time they graduate they learn how to write words add subtract learn the sounds of the alphabet know they're numbers.

    I really love this school since it is small there is definitely more 1 1 ratio with teacher/student. They have pre-school to 1st grade and is a very good school with helpful teachers and staff!

    This school is a real gem. It is right in the heart of an impoverished neighborhood but the quality of the faculty and the school's support system is second to none. I highly recommend this school to anyone who has a school aged child.
