Ps 119 Amersfort 4

As a parent, I had 4 children successfully completed PS 119. The school is one of Brooklyn's best kept secret. Bullying is NOT tolerated and all the kids are PEACEFUL and LOVING towards one another. I've never seen a school where all of the kids greet each other with hugs upon arriving and leaving. The teachers are excellent and work to push your children to excel and the Principal knows ALL of the students. Principal Fernandez is so involoved as well as the of staff with the school. PS 119 also provides a clean environment for your child to learn. I'm completely satisfied with this school. PS ROCKS!

PS 119 was a beacon of hope for my child after superstorm Sandy. It was very difficult being displaced and especially for my daughter being away from our neighborhood school. But ALL the children and the staff at PS 119 welcomed her and embraced her with the school's culture of peace and respect for all. Ms. Fernandez the principal is a visionary whose decision making is based on her dedication to and love of children. Students love coming to school because it offers so many interesting subject areas and the school puts forth lots of fun programming. A very special place with a top quality teachers. If you can I recommend sending your child to this jewel of a school.

the school is a good school however the principal is a control freak and she take her role as a principal a little to far. she is very dismive to a parents view if it seems different or controversial to the school. she has kicked parents out of the school when they confronted her on situations with her and their child. she also picks on a child if at any time that child has did something wrong if at any time there is a problem your child is the oneat fault .she also dont listen to both views if your child is one of the students involved. i removed my child because of her action my child didnt want to come back to that school and wished they was never born . this principal made my child feel very unhappy . but he loved his teacher friends .

The school primarilly focuses on peace, though it is exeptional it doesnt really close in with the curriculum.

This school is amazing. The art and activities they have are very fundamental. From the music department to the shows they put on, this school has it all. When i went to this school, i had the best time of my life. The teachers are very caring and help you with everything. When i had a problem, i could count on my teacher for help and they would give me the advise that i needed. Even teachers that weren't your teacher anymore would he me out with the problems that i had. This school had activities for everyone. The best time of the year {for me} was Field Day. There are more great features about this school that i love but i would then have to sit here all day to remember all the great memories.

I am so thrilled with this school!! They have strong academic programs and great Arts programs. My child is in chorus and art. The principal, Ms. fernandez, takes an interest in every child.She has brought a character development program that fosters respect for diversity and peace. I have one child in special ed at the school and one in a regular class. You cant tell the difference!! Thanks to the principal and Assistant principal, Ms. Snow for going above and beyond to educate my kids as well as all the others. This is what a school should be!!

This school is great! The principal and assistant principal are very involved and know almost all the children by name. They have created a safe and strong learning environment. I cant wait for my youngest child to be ready to attend 119.

I am not a parent but I am an alumni of PS 119. The school is great. They have been in the business for 105 years and are great at it. THe academic programs are fantastic. They really help teachers individually and there was always a chance that you would have a student teacher in your class to help you alonng the way. In the gifted programs, the teachers are extremely educated. They make the students read books that challenge the mind and make you think before you act. There are many extracurricular activities available at 119. I was in the chorus program myself some time ago(4 years). It was fantastic. Parents are involved in all of the activities 119 has to offer. THey have a very active PTA and the mural was created by the children, teachers, janitors, and parents (and myself, tank you very much). 5-306E all day!
