My child went here for 2years and loved it. We move a lot and this school is leaps and bounds better than any other school she's attended. The teacher here are inspiring and dedicated to the students. They not only teach the standard lessons, they teach them things they can use in the real world. They have unique activities the kids get to do,like ballroom dancing or field trips to Philadelphia. The staff is excellent. It has a great safe, secured environment. It's in a beautiful old school with a winding staircase inside that has classroom pictures of the original students that went there. It's in the best neighborhood in Queens. There parents at this school that can afford to send their kids to a private school but send them here instead because the school is just that good.

PS101 is the best school in the community - great staff, nice study environment, Model Technology and teachings. My nephew also graduated here with a strong academic background now on the principal's honor list as top student at his current school. One of the many good reasons I select PS101. Parent -D

I am a former student who attended P.S 101K from 1986-1991. This school gave me a strong educational foundation in the arts, technology, sciences, and social skills that has been unparalleled throughout my educational career. I often draw upon the skills learned here in my early childhood even as an adult. I often wish I lived in the zoned area so that my children may attend. Also the schools in this area are the most ethnically diverse of New York City elementary schools. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

I feel really secure in my children attending this school. The teacher are wonderful, the techniques in which they implement in teaching the children is just wonderful. My children will come away from this school with so much knowledge that they will not be afraid to move on into society as intelligent adults.

The Best school in Brooklyn By far! The staff and principal are just fantastic! My kids miss it dearly. My son learned so much . The Best PhysEd Program and Gym teacher anywhere to be found and 'quote me on that' . Warm , welcoming , caring environment . My son's education he got was priceless from what 101 gave him. A+!
