I went to this school from third to fifth grade and it was truly amazing. There is a safe learning environment and the teachers are the best of the best.
Great school, Strong leadership from entire staff. Here's a school where the Principal is always involved and shows concern for all involved (students, staff and parents). It's refreshing to see hands on deck from all.
I really like the overall spirit of the school. The Principals, Teachers, Staff and PTA really work well together to create a real family atmosphere of caring and nurturing of the students. The teachers' passion for connecting with each students is amazing and comforting, especially for new students entering the public school system for the first time. The upper class students on honor roll help as "Tutors" in the classrooms to assists Pre-K and K classes. They are delightful and encouraging to the students and act as role models of academic achievers. It is unfortunate that the parent involvement is not higher. The have a wonderful PTA board who are devoted and passionate about giving of their time, but they can't do it all. All parents must know that staying involve in your child's lives inside and outside of the home is a must!
There are lots of educational activities to help kids boost up their love for school and most of all learning. Parents are updated with the schools every day activities.
This is an excellent school. I went there and so did my brother and sister. Also, my niece goes there now.
ps176 is a great school and a very close family.They have a great pta and the staff really cares.Its been a geat ride for me and my child.keep up the good work!!!!
I so like this school that I wish it would go up to grade 8. It saddens me that my child has to leave after grade 5. The school is great, the Principal is excellent. It the right 'village' to raise a child.
The school has some really amazing Teachers that go the extra mile. Some of the class sizes are too big and I wish there was more unification of parents and staff
They are a great schools teachers principals and counselors are on point they are very hands on and look out for the kids best intrest
PS 176 is a great school , the principal is no non sense really have it together the teachers are great. The only down side is I think the kids should have gym more than once a week.
Gym program for the younger grades needs to be improved. They need more activites to do in gym. They should also have a sports night for the kids. Compare to other schools there art program needs major improvement.
