Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My children (3) all attend PS221.....the communication between myself and the teachers are great. I attend the parents conference and other events to get feed back and see what the school offers. I stay connected to the teachers and i do the old fashion communication....write concerns and questios in my kids book and the teacher respond. PS221 team makes the school feel very family friendly. Almost everyone knows what child belongs to you. Keep reaching for the stars PS221. God Bless.

P.S. 221 is a great school, you feel very welcome from the first day you step foot into the school. I can say this because that is the way I felt when my children attended the school and I still have the same feeling today. My nephew goes there now and the atmosphere is still the same. Go to 221.

P.S. 221 is the first Hip2B Healthy School in New York City and nationally. Seeds in the Middle, named by fourth graders in Crown Heights, partners with P.S. 221 as a pilot to integrate healthy choices, environmental education, cooking, greening, the arts, and more hands-on learning into the curriculum to inspire students to excel in math, literacy, social studies, science and more. Universities are working with teachers on professional development and Seeds in the Middle empowers parents, too, to advocate for their children and fundraise effectively. Please see seedsinthemiddle.org to see the exciting programs at P.S. 221, funded by donations and volunteerism from corporations like Home Depot, Whole Foods Market and many more. We work closely with very talented, dedicated and hardworking faculty at P.S. 221, an inspiring model for any educational institution, anywhere.

My nine year old son has been having a really hard time at this school due to student and teacher bullying. He loves school but due to recent incidents, he does not want to go to school. I have spoken to the principal several times to have him removed from th current class to avoid my child from being bullied. This change has not taken place as yet. The teacher is very unprofessional and believes the words of fellow students above the word of my son.
