I am a student at this school and I would recommend Elysian to any parent. The teachers can individually talk and study with the kids, so that the "30 kids, one answer" education doesn't happen. As to kids getting lost in parks, I have been here 8 years (my last year here in Elysian) and this has never happened to anyone I know. Also, they go to the most protected, safest, well known park in Hoboken. I remember when I was in 3rd grade, there was an incident that ended up a with me and a friend at the police station. Don't think the worst- While me and friend were hanging out, an old man shoved her head away so he could "get through." The staff acted quickly and efficiently, and we were able to locate the guys before lunch time. I love this school, and any other child would too.

As the parent of a former student, one of the issues that we had with the school was with regard to safety or lack thereof. No one, including the director of the school, liked to talk about it but, as of only a couple of years ago, the playground monitors would every so often leave a child behind at the public playground at recess, only to realize he/she was missing when they had returned to the school with the rest of the class. It happened to our child and we know of at least two other children who were left behind as well. It was a very scary situation and we regret having not reported the incident to the state Dept of Education. We only hope that the school and director have improved their procedures and accountability.
