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.

I couldn't be happier with the way this school has helped my daughter. The teachers and staff are wonderful and I would not change her for another shcool if they paid me.

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.
