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.

'I have just graduated from 101, and it is truly one of the best schools in Brooklyn. The teachers and Principal are very worm and welcoming too. P.S. 101 will always be in my heart forever.'

I find this school to be the best for my children. I went here when I was in elementary school and my daughter has some of my old teachers. I think the teacher and the staff are very caring and trustworthy.

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+!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
