I went to P.S 17 from K-3rd grade! I loved the time I spent there. It was a great learning experience. I wish to have come back but I'm already in High School. My favorite teacher ever was Mrs. Sanchez! I miss her so much! My music and art teacher were great there too! If I could contact them again, I'd love it with every bit of my heart!

There is no real pre-k criteria, students are generally being observed not taught. My child everyday informs me that she naps, sings and plays with blocks and on the contrary I believe students should be taught how to identify & write their letters, numbers; learn the pronounciation of these letters etc...these are pre-kindergarten activities. In daycare my child was taught her colors and how to write. I feel as if she is still in daycare minus the learning.

The reason to recommend this school for education is because of the consistent discipline, and the educational facilities provided to students.

The teachers at this school are very nice and are always willing to help out. The principal however is a completely diffrent story. She does not listen to you and talks over you. She wants everything done her way. I'm very glad that I now deal with the vice principle. It can't always be done my way but at least she listens to what you have to say.

My son just started. Its was a mess. Disorganized, I was lost. No one helped me. Not helpful at all. We'll see how and if things progress.

This school is very nice. It's convenient for commuters via Light Rail. Drop-off/Pickup is fairly easy as well. They have nice teachers, and encourage a lot if artwork and computer educational exercises, which are very stimulating for the students. My children very much enjoyed the programs there.

Having four children in grades 5,6,7,and 8 I know each has had a good look at the school. I have been told by my children that the school is great and they never want to leave. I know my kids are in good hands beacause I have met their teachers and they are all very good with children and teaching. I love it!
