All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The second you walk into the school you can feel the warmth in radiates. Although its in a poor community, the teachers are completely dedicated and the children love to learn. Its creating excellent citizens and instilling the importance of education to each child.

Ms. Williams is an outstanding principal. Her dedication,love and understanding for all of her individual children is like no other. Not only does she know all her kids by name, she also knows all of their special needs. Most important her staff is a direct replica of what she represents to her students and parents. My child has been in her school for the past 5 years and know that I have moved I am finding that not even the private schools in my area can compare with P.S 179. Sincerely Destiny D's mom.
