    PS2 is fast moving with new principal. high qualified and experienced teachers hard working staffs in school. GT program and summer school was successful. As the community wishes PS2 is growing up.

    Public School #2 is a much nicer and newer building than the other public schools in West New York but is plagued by the same overcrowded and rowdiness that all of the other schools in town are dealing with.
