My child is currently in the Pre-K program at 282 and will be attending for K in the Fall. We have had an amazing experience at this school. The PTO is incredible, so welcoming and involved. I love that this school really embraces the community and feels inclusive and diverse. We also love the after school offerings. Tiny Scientists has been amazing!
