Some of the teachers especially from old lot are mean ,,maybe they are too old and too tired to do any good,,just hanging there until retirement ,,, this school needs some better teachers who likes to give some input ,,instead of making judgements and complaints ,,teaching needs more enthusiasm

The new principle is great. Always has time for the kids or parents. The older grade teachers are AMAZING I wish all the teachers were like them. Love this school. I'm so happy my kids went to this school.

Bad. Don't teaching anything. Most teachers just go there because they have to spend a day there.

I have two kids attending P.S.163 and this is their first year in the school. My kids love the school! The staff are very nice and polite. The school events always well organized. I'm very impressed with the principal. I noticed she always there to lead the event and ensure everything goes well!

Lot's of problems with communication with staff and teachers. New change is definitely needed.

This is a very good school in a nice, safe area of Bensonhurst. The principal is excellent--and is very involved and accessible. I've only had dealings with the Pre-K teachers, but am very impressed. The set-up for the full day Pre-K is better than most private pre-schools in the area. Kids have their own bathrooms (pre-K only) and large light-filled rooms. Teachers are very experienced and caring. Only issues are the lack of a real playground (have cement parking lot with hopscotch, etc. painted on it)... as well as the fact that parents cannot walk their kids into school due to security concerns. Makes it rather tough on the little kids. Very active PTA as well.
