  • Shout out - Co-op Middle School

    For those of you in the midst of the middle school process, I wanted to give a shout out to the Co-op Middle School, where my son is a 6th grader. So far, it's been a really good fit for him - the 6th grade is a class of 15 kids who are forming really lovely bonds and the classes have been appropriately challenging for my nerdy boy, with lots of discussion and analysis of their first novel + global studies topics. Depending on where you live, it's definitely not the easiest school to get to (a downside), but we've found a good public transportation route and are teaching him to take the train on his own or with a few middle school buddies.
  • 2's Programs for Sept 2021

    I highly recommend the Co-op school in bed stuy. Loving and nurturing environment, emphasis on play and joy, and overall a great community to be a part of. (December 2020)
  • 2019-2020 Year Review

    My daughter has learned so much at Co-Op. The school is up to date with all the latest educational trends and progressive values. They spend a lot of time on social emotional curriculum, but the pre-literacy and pre-math learning is totally there - your kid won't even notice how much they're learning but you will. The new facility is really beautiful and has a lot of potential. The teachers and staff really care about what they're doing and everyone knows the name of every child, even the ones not in their class. The online communication platform is really useful and the other families we have met there are really great. We are really glad this school exists as it perfectly meets our needs for an affordable but top-notch school. … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours … What would you change? I wish we didn't have to do so much fundraising events, but that's what keeps the school affordable.
  • 2019-2020 Year Review

    Community oriented 2/3s program. Our child never seemed that interested in the program. I would not send again because a) school is now too far and b) our classrooms were shut for +2 months due to building code violations … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals … What would you change? Management should be more respectful of parents. Would have preferred more engaged teachers -often seemed apathetic
  • 2019-2020 Year Review

    A fluid, progressive, and creative curriculum. Teacher are well trained, enthusiastic and supportive. The new building is gorgeous. They do a lot of fundraising to support financial aid. Share pictures and written summary of day. Study important leaders. Have class pets. Lot of toys and activities for choice time. Music and movement classes. Overall a great experience. All parents must do coop shifts and / or serve on a committee as part of cooperative mission. Affordable for private school as a result. … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours, Provided snacks, has indoor gym and library … What would you change? transportation options (they tried but it didn’t work out for this year, maybe next year)
  • Review from the 2018/2019 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten Survey

    My son LOVES school. He only goes 2x days a week now (he's 2) but asks to go every day. The transition was great, the teachers are loving and supportive, the curriculum is age appropriate, and I love the progressive mission of the school. My older son is in the elementary school (2nd grade), although he started in K so this is our first experience with the preschool. The kids go outside to the rooftop playground every day, sometimes 2x a day, have music, movement, art, etc. I love how responsive the administration and teachers are as well. My older son went to a different preschool, which was great in many ways, but I found the administration at the other school completely unresponsive to parent questions and concerns. At Co-op, they WANT parents to be involved and it's a great community. They support all types of learners and the student body is diverse and anti-bias is a big part of the curriculum. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours, provides snack but not meals What would you change? They are outgrowing the current space, but they are building out a new space that should be ready next year.

  • A shout out to The Coop School!

    I have 2 kids at the Coop School (in 1st grade and pre-k 3s) and just want to give a shout out to the school. It is truly a special place! The elementary school is located in Bed-Stuy and is committed to Joyful learning. All members of The Co-op School—students, families and staff—contribute to the development of the school's unique culture and participate in and improve our community and beyond. This is my older daughter’s 4th year and my younger daughter’s 2nd year at the school. So we have seen quite a few of its teachers. The teachers are amazing and I believe well supported by the administration, which I think goes a long way to why my kids continually get good teachers. I see the inquiry-based (Reggio Emilia) influence in the teacher literally taking notes at some points during the day on the what the kids are doing and then following that to figure out where the next inquiry project should go. They come at the different subjects in the older years (reading, writing, math, etc) from many different angles to help the kids figure out what learning style works best for them. All families also work in committees and on the board to support the school and its core values: compassion, uniqueness, innovation, community action, and joy. Thus the “Coop” in the name. I have been on a number of different committees in the school now. This year I am working on the tech committee and helping with the inquiry and tour process. So I am seeing it from a new angle. If you end up inquiring and/or touring the school and think of things we could do better from a technical perspective I would also love to hear about it.
  • Summer Camp Survey 2016

    Review: Camp was low-key, choice time, reading, playing in the playground/sprinklers everyday. Counselors were good, as was the counselor/student ratio. What would you change about the program, if anything? First, the air-conditioning was broken the entire summer. Very frustrating, and hot! Second, for the 6-year olds there was an "Explorers" camp that did many field trips, but the younger kids did not have that opportunity. I think my son would have enjoyed a few field trips here and there.
  • 2014 Summer Camp Review

    Program: Age of Child: 5 Likes: Both my kids currently attend (ages 2; 5). They play outside at least twice a day, using the roof deck playgrounds. The 2s have sprinklers and a kiddie pool. The 5s have sprinklers. They're tired at the end of the day, which makes me happy. Both have imaginations blocks. The curriculum is rich, with movement, yoga, music, games, gardening, etc. The teachers are very warm, most with lots of experience. I particularly like that so many of them are trained artists (dancers, writers, designers). What would you change? Wish the elementary school and preschool were housed in the same building. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add? The vibe is laid-back and cheerful. Parents hang out at the rooftop picnic tables while kids play after pick up.
