    Ann Street Elementary School is a healthy high-functioning learning environment. They allow parents to have confidence in the public school system again.

    BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL..what a joke they dont even have extra help for students that are in need. My daughter needs help in 3 subjects they can only help in 1 subject. The rest of the subjects OH WELL!!!! they act like nothing and they have a waiting list (for turtors) They dont even contact you when your spot is available. They act like nothing. This school dont care for the students. Very disappointing....

    For the past 2 years I been very disappointed with this school and I thought highly of Ann Street however since my son's 4th grade experience which it was horrible and he was bullied not by a student by an adult that the student look up too no one cared. Now my daughter in 2nd grade is having trouble with her subjects and I cant get within the school help...is very frustrating and a completely disappointed. This is how they want to resolve the issues to take my kids out of the school and go to another school instead of fixing the issues. Very simple for them to say. Is a joke everytime I visit the school I have to say Ann Street School is not like years ago it has changed tremendously....

    ANN ST. SCHOOL HAS THE BEST TEACHERS..

  • (4 years ago)

    Ann Street School is a magnet school and is an example for all schools. My kid gets up in the morning with a strong sense of wanting to go to school to learn. He has a goal of becoming super honor roll which he thrives for. At home he has a strong sense of completing homework as soon as he gets home. Demostrates strong dedication towards education which impresses me. When a school gives kids a strong example of being respectful of being responsible and get a good education which is the school's moto kids due excel and compete to reach that super honor roll goal. I'm very happy my kids attends Ann Street School.

    I LIKE ANN STREET SCHOOL BECAUSE IT HAS EXELLENT TEACHERS AND THIS "SCHOOL" DEMANDS THE STUDENTS TO HAVE RESPONSABILITY. FINALLY ANN STREET IS A GREAT SCHOOL BECAUSE IT HAS MRS. RICHARDSON AS A PRINCIPAL.

    Ann Street School is a Blue Ribbon School and the students staff and parents work very hard to keep it that way.

    Both of my nieces attended this fantastic school. They are bright well-adjusted happy children. I am looking forward to the privilege of having my daughter attend the Ann Street Elementary School as well!

    My daughter went there for prek and kindergarten. She left because we moved. She received a fantastic education. Her teachers at the Ann Street Annex were top notch. Ms. Rizzo and Ms. Gamba are by far two of the most wonderful teachers I have ever come in contact with. My daughter left Kindergarten reading and writing a two page book report something she isn't really doing yet in second grade. Hats off to a wonderful group of teachers at Ann Street. You win my vote!!
