Ok, I LOVE this school! All of the teachers are so friendly and amazing! The education is great, and the teachers care about their students... Just, the kids. Many kids are rude and have no manners or respect toward one another or to the staff of the school. Other than the kids there is nothing else I can complain about!

I have a my son in this school and I really like how he is learning alot. I like the teachers. The only thing I dont like is the staff that works in the office. They are always in a bad mood. I dont feel welcome if, I have a question Idont even want to ask because they dont answer or they answer you with an attitude.I hope this change. Thats my only complain. I like P.S.99

This year marks my last at PS 99. I have put two children through the Sigma Program and I am so pleased with both their overrall challenging academic educations. PS 99 is a place where parents, principal, teachers, pta and staff work together as a team. You feel extrremely welcomed when you come to 99. I am grateful for all of the wonderful people who work and volunteer at 99. You might find other great elementary schools and its the people that make the school great. 99 has such wonderful people working there. Teachers really care about their students. 99 has a safe and secure enviornment. Basically it ranks really high as far as elementary schools go.

The quality of education my daughter has received thus far has been top notch! The SIGMA program at P.S. 99 far exceeds my expectations. The quality of a teacher's performance is not a popularity contest, nor is it based on his/hers bedside manner, although in a student/teacher relationship, the desire is to have the best well-rounded experience possible. In short, my daughter is where she is today because of the emphasis on learning and scholastic achievements above and beyond the norm, which she has recieved at P.S. 99.

I think this is an excellent school. The Sigma program is very successful and the teachers could not be better. The teachers really care for the kids and the schoolwork is challenging. My son did great on the state tests and got a very good score in the talent test he took at Mark Twain. This was all thanks to his teacher's hard work. I am not sure waht could have happend to the parent that had a negative review, but my experience with the Sigma program and the teachers at P.S.99 has been very positive.

My daughter is in the 3rd grade Sigma. We were very happy with 1st and 2nd grade, but this year we can t wait when it will be over. Teacher has questionable methods of teaching, more appropriate for boot camp, and not Sigma program.

My daughter is in the Sigma Program at P.S. 99. The academics as well as the extra-curriculum activities are outstanding; the kids are receiving a world class education. the staff is dedicated to the well being of the kids. Hats off to the principal Mr. Pirraglia!

I think this school offers a well rounded academic program for students with fine teachers. There are many extracurricular activities including drama, chorus, music and art. TYhe level of parent activity is high, with a great PTA team that offers bake sales, holiday boutiques and an end of the year carnival for the students in june.

I see the school as fine. No major issues to complain about. My children is in Kindergarten and she is learning things that teachers at other schools are surprised at so to me this is a good thing. Should be after school programs for most mothers that work till 5 pm and need to be home by 6.
