    I really like this school. My son has been attending this school since he was in pre-k. The teachers are great and they really work with the parents to ensure your childrens future. I would recommend this school to everyone.

    Family School is a wonderful school with caring teachers a wonderful principal and PACT (Parent and Child Together) time which really gets the parents more involved in their child's education. Most notable teachers are Mrs. McSpedon (Pre-K) Ms. Perino (Kindergarte) Ms. Grotto (1st Grade) Mrs. Hart/Ms. Wicoff (2nd Grade). My children are very happy with this school and they adore the principal. Truly a home away from home! Highly recommended.

    I am very happy with this school. My two children are too. Too bad Yonkers school system is not doing so well budget-wise that is why we are considering going private. School staff are helpful and cordial; the principal is kind very involved and knows each child by name.
