This is my daughter’s 7th year at ELS and I can’t say enough good things about the school. It’s a wonderful learning environment where the staff truly care about the students. As a parent of a child with an IEP the small class sizes are a real plus and make it easier for her to recieve accomodations without feeling singled out. We couldn’t be happier and my daughter feels like it’s her second home.

As a former ELS student it breaks my heart to see what this place has become. This school was a family and the exact reason it was so hard to say goodbye to it after I graduated. I started Eltingville Lutheran when I was 2-years-old and stayed until I graduated in 2009. After that I continued to be involved- teaching the Drama Club and helping out whenever, and wherever I could. I adored every teacher, every faculty member and every one of my peers. However, that all changed in August of 2016 when the corrupt church council took over the school and terminated the amazing principal who spent 20 years teaching and then running the school (not to mention- she attended ELS as a student herself).
Now, SHOCKINGLY, 2 years later and the school is falling apart. They have now terminated the last of the good ones. The teachers and principal now are uncertified and unqualified and there are, at most, 5 children in each class. Some grades don’t even have any students. Good things are ruined when people have no morals.
Sadly, despite the name, this is not a Christian organization.
It once was and I am lucky for the memories and friends I made in my years there and I’m even luckier to still keep in contact with my wonderful teachers.

A true hidden gem. From the Principal to the teachers and staff, the sincere care for each child is crystal clear. I’m a current ELS parent and my son is getting the best possible start to his academic career.

There are a handful of non licensed, non certified teachers working with your children in this school. There is no gym, & no space for the kids to run around and get the much needed activity they require to help establish a healthy learning environment. It floods often which equates to mold, especially in the heating system. Your kids are breathing in mold spores. The power goes out regularly. My son worked on this school and seen horrible conditions. The school has unstable ceiling fans that are ready to fall off onto the children in the classroom. Look up, we have never seen such fans. They are large commercial units that appear to be improperly installed which is apparent when in use. The children soak in sweat during the spring & early Sept months. The teachers must take turns hourly plugging in their portable air conditioners. If they all have them on, the fuses blow in the entire school. During the winter, the heating system shuts off and the staff and children must wear their coats all day long. This school has been reported, however someone has to be paying off NYC Buildings Dept. to keep them from getting shut down. The principal in charge now is pathetic. There were extremely dangerous situations reported, and she looked the other way. Your children are not being taught properly. The class sizes are maybe 5 students to 1 teacher. This is only because they bridge the grades together. Stay away! If this school closes (which is inevitable), the children in this school will be very much academically behind. They also mix children with very dangerous children that have Aspergers, as well as other social disorders. They do not tell the parents when children have been hurt at the school and went unreported. There is no nurse in the building. The school is plain scary!!
