In my opinion, PS 222 is doing a wonderful job with all of the great programs that are available to the students. My son has definitely excelled since starting in September. Keep up the good work!
I think there should be more parent involvement. Since 9/11 they don't allow the parents in the school as much as they used to for security reasons. I think that's to bad because the children (I know my children) love when parents come to the school for class parties, etc.
In my opinion, this is one of the best public schools in the district. It has the best teaching staff. All of which are dedicated & professional. My daughter graduates next year & I will be so sorry to be leaving!
I have two children that attend P.S. 222 the eldest child is in the Eagle program and the youngets is in a conclusion class. Both children have progressed very well. Based upon their homework, classwork and projects all are aligned to the state curriculum and standards and have prepared my children to meet those standards while having positive and rich academic and social experiences.
My son is in Pre-K and I am delighted with his teacher as well as the social skills he is developing. In my son's class each child has a special day once a month. On that day they assist the teacher with the calendar by counting the days, preparing the weather calendar, etc. The parent(s) of that child are encouraged to come and help out in class. I have enjoyed my time in class and think this is a great way for parents to get involved and see what occurs during the school days. This school does a lot to encourage parents to participate. I'm glad my son is in this school and highly recommend it.
I am the parent of a 7 year-old second grader. Living in Marine Park, we couldn't be more pleased and fortunate that she has the benefit of going to PS 222. Her learning experience has been extraordinary. She loves to go to school and can't wait to learn new ideas. It is apparent that PS 222 is building a solid foundation for my daughter to continue her education beyond the required grade levels. We are hoping my son, soon to be of school-age, will benefit as well from the experience had by his sister. NYC school officials need to and must support programs that ensure the level of education received at schools like PS 222 for the future of our children and country.
I am a mother with 5 children who have attended this school. I think the education thay have recieved is excellent. The staff is very caring and supportive.
There are different programs in the school that cover all aspects of learning. While each child may not receive a full year of extracurricular activities there is a chance for all to be part of something. There is no favoritism and everyone is made to feel important. There seems to be plenty of parent involvement, however, there are plenty of parents that do not get involved. The teachers seems to make each child feel extra special. I have heard parents complain about different aspects but it seems to be on more of a personal level than an overall complaint with the school.
