I moved to the area because I wanted my kids to attend this "Blue ribbon" school. Oh boy! Was this a mistake?! I deeply regretted my decision shortly after the school begun. This school is all about "pathologizing" your perfectly healthy and striving kids. Truly shameful. I transferred my kids out of the school just after a year. Now, my kids are happy and so am I. Beware parents, talk to other parents and most of all do your research! Good Luck

Found the school to be an amazing Blue Ribbon School! Both my children attended P.S. 222 and my daughter graduated this year. I have no regrets. The students have a wholesome environment in which to play and learn, with teachers and staff who are genuinely interested in their success. I would recommend this school to any parent.

I must agree with previous comment. I had bad experiences with the school staff. Some of the teachers are unresponsive and rude. My child is graduating this year and thankfully, I don't have to send my daughter there ever again. Ms. Hanley needs to take some lessons in "how to interact with parents politely". Overall, I'm dissatisfied with the school.

So far I was not able to schedule a visit to this school as a parent. Are there any tips to get a tour of this school? ...other than calling the school or leaving messages to the parent coordinator.. giving it 3 stars only because I've heard great things about the school but I have no first hand information on it.

My son is in his second year at PS 222. Pre-k and now kindergarten. I couldn't be happier with the teachers and staff. Everyday, I'm excited to watch him enjoy learning. Positive reinforcement with the color chart and activities that allow him to enjoy leaning. Love the email notification from Ms. Olivieri. Agree with the school lunch review of being able to pay and get notifications online

Correction to one of the reviews below: new Principal is Theresa Olivieri and not Ms. Hanley. Ms. Hanley is the Assistant Principal. My daughter has been a student of PS 222 since 2010, she's a 3rd grader now. We cannot be happier about how Mrs. Olivieri manages the school. There are more email communications now. The school was one of the National Blue Ribbon Award recipients in 2013. We are very proud to be members of the PS 222 community.

My was in K now in first grade. I was amazed to witness day by day his progress in writhing, maths and reading. It still puzzels me, how the staff managed to make such accomplishment. what i like about the school is the diversity and the exposure of the kids to other culture, religion and ethnicity. Great school.

I used to go to this school. It is a wonderful school with polite teachers and nice surroundings. Keep up the good work!

My daughter goes to this school. As another parent stated previously, it would be nice if the school was more tech savvy. Like with paying for lunches, we should be able to do it online. Who carries cash any more? I would also like to see emails from teachers the communication books are great when used but they seem to be used only when there is a complaint or concern. Also the security guards manning down the front doors could learn a little customer service or at least smile once in a while.
