this school is average at best. the administration is lacks experience and is extremely disorganized. when we went to register my child for 1st grade, there was so much chaos and the parent coordinator was running around dishing out excuses for staff that was not showing up day one. i am not very happy about this school as a parent. the curriculum is too test driven and is missing a component where teachers know what it is that a young child really needs.

Don't see the overall grade, see the grades of the regular classes wich are below 5. My kid won 4 yrs in row the gifted program and they didn't take h.. saying that the class is full. It was too late for me when I learned that most of the teacherss kids and relatives are in gifted programs wich I doubt they deserve it.

P.S.122 is like a second home to me. I've been here since kindergarten and am now in the 8th grade graduating class of 2010. The teachers here are amazing and every single one of my teachers I plan on visiting after I graduate. I have built lasting bonds with not only the teachers but with the students as well. We're all a bigh happy family at 122. It is just such a welcoming school. I know my mom has loved taking her part in the school as well in the PTA. Overall, 122 is just a great school.

march 15: Most if the kids who come from outside the district are there because hey tested into the Gifted and Talented program at P.S. 122, which is a school within the school known as the Academy. This is in accordance with policy instituted by the NYC DOE. Perhaps if you did a little bit of research about your child's school you wouldn't see conspiracies where none exist.

To the parent who posted on March 15th: Since PS 122 has the Academy program students are not required to live within the zone-- many kids test in based on their performance. In addition, perhaps it is not the parents you should be upset with, but rather a public school system who does not have the same level of education citywide. I have never felt like this school is overcrowded and compared to other neighboring schools PS122 has adequete amount of space and facilities.

The staff at this school are very supportive. I feel extremely fortunate that my son was educated at this school

I feel very fortunate that my daughter is at this school. She is in the G and T Academy but the general school is fantastic, too, and sets high expectations for all the children. There are several parent workshops each month, and events for the whole family such as Math/Literacy Family Night, Culture Night, and concerts. The students receive a well rounded education, with art, music, dance, computers, Spanish, in addition to their core academic subjects. My daughter is ready high quality literature with meaningful themes as part of her studies and her teacher is committed to her growth. I found this true of her teacher last year as well. The principal and APs really set a high standard of excellence, while nurturing the children.

We have one child at P.S. 122, and we have been very pleased with the qulity of the school so far. Our daughter's Kindergarten and First Garde teachers have been wonderful and suppotive, and even in an age of ever-expanding class sizes, the techers manage to focus on our daughter's individual needs and interests.

This is the first year for my 2nd and 4rd graders at Public School, I've should have known better 4 years ago and have saved the money for private school for college! 122 is a great school with great teachers, very well organized, friendly and secure environment. Champions is a wonderful after school program! My kids go to school happy everyday. The opportunity to join chorus or play an instrument adds to the fun, they have a great music program with enthusiastic teachers.

122 is just awesome. You can talk to all the teachers because they really know you and are your friends. Everything just flows, it s not like you re just reading from the text book because you get to do so much more creative projects and interact with your classmates. I m going to graduate this year and move on to high school and I will definitely miss P.S.122.

This is an excellent school but like all NYC public schools it's ability to teach kids is being crippled by standardized testing requirments that break up knowledge into little tiny 'factoids' appropriate to US Today but not the classroom.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 18, 2007

I loved 122, because every teacher was your friend and we were able to talk to them comfortably about our lives and just have fun with them. I admit, there was some pressure to do well on tests, but it made me want to try my hardest and it was great preparation for highschool. After 122, i assure you, highschool will a breeze!

My daughter is in her third year at the scool and we are thrilled. I do agree that there is a lot of pressure to keep test scores high. The after school program is run by an amazing director, Ms. Vasquez. Great school, great teachers.

The school is run top-down. Principal is not parent friendly. Without the Academy for the Gifted, the school would be middle of the road.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 8, 2007

I must say that after 8 years in that building it became my home, the staff and the students became my big dysfuctional family. The school offers limitless possibilities for students but its is up to the student to decide how many of those opportunities he/she takes advantage of

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

In 2009-2010, this school was given a grade of "A" for the elementary and middle school level.

About the tests


Progress Report Grades measure the school's contribution to student learning in three areas: School Environment, Student Performance and Student Progress. Schools can receive additional credit for achieving exemplary performance progress among high-needs students. Progress Report Grades range from A to F.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
