Mis hijos fueron estudiantes de ps65 y para mí fue una bendición! Le agradezco a los maestros que ponen todo su empeño para ayudar a los niños en su educación.., Ms.Garcia por todo el apoyo y dedicación en el desarrollo de los niños.. Siempre un ambiente muy limpio y seguro!

My son has been in this school since kindergarten. He's in 1 st grade and has been great. The teachers are very nice and dedicated. Ms. Garcia looks very detail- oriented and from what I see she accomplished a lot in this school. It has been good so far.

My hijo ha estado en 2 escuelas diferentes, llegó ha esta escuela en el 2013 y ha sido una bendicion, en menos de un año el avance fue increíble lee y escribe en inglés con mucha fluidez, en matemáticas le va fenomenal, y el está feliz de pertenecer a esta escuela, algo que no pudo conseguir en las demás escuelas. Los profesores son excelentes, el staff y la seguridad muy amable, te hacen sentir como casa, la principal Ms. Garcia no tiene comparación una mujer con carácter, tierna, preparada, y siempre está disponible para recibirnos, es exepcional. Lo mejor que me le ha pasado a mi hijo fue encontrar esta escuela.

This Principal is a bully!! She bullies her staff. She tries to intimidate teachers and other staff members by using her power to get things accomplish. Shame on the DOE to allow such a principal to run a school!!! She frowns upon Special Ed. Shame Shame Shame!!!

I came to PS 65 as a teacher 12 years ago. In comparison to the other two schools I taught in, this was heaven! The children are courteous and thoughtful. There are few if any real discipline problems. Learning is rigorous and results are apparent. When I cam to PS65, we had the lowest scores in the district in reading and math.When Principal Garcia came, things started to turn around. Within 3 years, PS.65 became the top school in reading and math scores. It had been ranked well developed and given top grades by the Department of Education. Parents and Teachers appreciate the turnaround as evidenced by the A rating given the school by Staff and Parents in the yearly school report card. Yes, the administration had to weed out some ineffective teachers, but that has to be done in all work environments. Teaching grades were changed, teachers were given retraining and some improved and some left....Today PS65 is a model school. I am proud to be part of the staff!

i taught at this school and was astonished by what was happening. Students who were supposed to received special education services were not. They were place in a co-teaching classroom where there was not even a sp.ed teacher present. Teachers were moved from one to the next with no reasoning and no time to explain to the kids. Only work from the top kid was displayed which was very frustrating to me as a special education teacher. The administration bullies the teachers into putting up their best students work but it is all fake. There is no time to teach new skills. Students are writing constantly in all subjects which was really just copying what the teacher had given them. i would never recommend this school to a family or anyone looking for a teaching job. Kids have no time to play or have fun or work on any social skills in a natural setting. Please think twice before sending you child here.

The principal makes herself available for meetings. Very well communication between parents and teachers. I noticed cliques between students. After school is available and Saturday classes for students who need extra help. I only wish this school went up to 8th grade
