the schools floats on its neighborhood and old ratings not what it used to be
My daughter is new in this school. In the first day she was very nervous and cried. But when I went to pick her up she was very happy and she told me she likes the school and her friends. We lover her teacher Mrs. Ferrara, she is a great teacher and she will let you know if your kid is not doing her/his homework correctly. Mrs. Ferrara shows that she cares about my daughter's education. We are very satisfied with the school overall.
To answer the question posted by a parent dated June 4, 2010, just look at the most recent New York state test score, it is almost 10 percentage lower than PS 229. and PS 247. I hope the school management team could wake up.
Does anyone know why this school has received an overall rating of 7 versus PS229 Dyker School who has a better score of 9? What is the difference between these 2 schools? I am confused and I am not sure whether this school is really good. My child has been offered a Gifted & Talented placement at P.S. 204 and I was hopeful for an offer at PS229, but it didn't materialize, and I am looking for parent's insight and recommendation. Take the offer or have my child take the exam next year? Appreciate any feeback.
My daughter has excelled in this school and i'm proud to have sent her there.
My daughter was a very shy child until she attended 204, and she has excelled in life and acedemics
this is an awesum skool 5th grade was awesum i lvoed my teachers mrs.anagotti and mrs.nowrocki their my bestest teachers goin to dyker...class 616 yay ~Kelly
The school is the greatest ! I think the teaching staff is above and beyond!Especially the wonderful fifth grade teachers!!!
I thought I was the only one who was not satisfied. My son is a regular kid with regular needs and the teachers get angry when they have to spend any amount of time working out a problem with him. They had the nerve to tell me that they were shocked he did so well on the state tests. It seems they wanted him to fail. I'm moving him to a smaller school 10 blocks down where the teachers teach and actually care about their students. (PS 112). Angela
Don't believe the hype. The school is ok. It is not the best. It is very overcrowded and regular students get lost in the shuffle. Parents need to get more involved, not just the same bunch. Marie
I agree with the last post. My kids are average kids. But the way the teachers treat them, you would think that they were garbage. They only care about the test scores and publicity. I am moving my kids to another school September just to get away from this 'perfect' school. I'm not the only one. Danielle
P.S. 204 is great! My daughter started Kindergarten there in September and is already reading D-E level books! I am confident that she will continue to excel in first grade and beyond.
My daughter is in the 4th grade. I have to say all her teachers since pre-k have been really great. There names are Mrs.Parotta, Mrs.Hoffner, Ms.Giuffre and Mr. Fazio. Mr.Fazio is a 3rd grade teacher and he is wonderful. The kids love him and he really helped my daughter with her confidence. She struggled with math and thanks to him she has improved greatly! I give him an A+. This year Ms.Paliti has so far been awesome! My daughter loves her and enjoys going to school everyday. I want to thank all her teachers for helping in molding a great child. You really mean a lot to us.
My son just started and I am impressed with the school in so many ways!
I was a student in this school and I loved my 7 hears here. I never wanted to leave. This school is a fun and great place to be and the teachers are excellent sure some are a little strict but we learn so much from them! So I highly recommend for kids who are transferring schools or are just starting there first year to come to this school, and I garante they're going to have a blast and a learning learning adventure!
great academic programs Beautiful plays put on yearly Most parents are involved
