P.S.115 is a great school! The Principal, Assistant Principal and Parent Coordinator are very caring and passionate about the parents, students and the school environment. The very visible and hands-on approach by the Administration creates a welcoming culture for all visitors to the school. Its Music, Art and Grade Performances enhance the quality of instruction throughout the school. The Grade Performances are outstanding! The addition of the G/T Program has increased the school capacity and it has been a wonderful addition to its rigorous curriculum. The students are engaged and my children love this program and their teachers. The G/T teachers are passionate, innovative and caring. The Parent Coordinator keeps parents well-informed through emails and flyers and he is always available even during the evening...he always responds to my emails. This multicultural school had a wonderful celebration of its diversity recently and I was amazed at the number of students and parents that participated. What a Great School!
What a great school. As a parent of a child in the G&T program it was difficult at first to choose the right school for him. I am happy to say that my son is doing great. The education they are providing is exceptional. The new science lab, computer lab, music class, art class and the involvement of the teachers and Principal has definitely made a positive impact on my child's education. He thoroughly enjoys school. Lastly, the parents all seem very involved in their child's education and are friendly. I do not regret my choice in school and encourage other G&T parents to consider this amazing program.
This is a wonderful school with great educators from the principal to the janitorial staff to the parent coordinator My children have settled in so well and that is due to the wonderful teachers who really care for all the children. I love the fact in addition to all the core curriculum lessons, they have music lessons in school and an after school violin, viola and cello program for the students
We were placed in the school as part of the Gifted and Talented program. The school as a whole is clean and up kept well. The staff is a great. It is wonderful to see such enthusiasm from the Principal and parent coordinator. The school's score has increased this past year and hope it will continue to over the next years so it will be more competitive within our district.
My school is very good. The teachers are well prepared for each day. The kids' grades are improving. The school grade is acceptable.
My daughter is in 1st grade at p.s. 115q and showed lot of improvement...Teacher's teaching skill is excellent and also cooperative...very happy to put my kid to this school..
My son is always smiling, and loves to go to school! The staff is friendly, the coordinator is a saint, and it's my zoned school! How lucky can you get!
The school has a friendly environment for students to learn. The staff at the school are a pleasure to work with
PS 115 Q is the same school that I graduated from, over 25 years ago and I am proud to send my children here. The principal was my grade school teacher and so I have the confidence that my children will only excel in this loving and nurturing environment. I have first hand experience from the way the Principal taught years ago and so I know that she will only make the school even better than what it is today! The parent coordinator is absolutely one of the most caring and helpful individuals at this school. He always sends updates via email and ensures that parents are very much involved in their children's education. Most of the teachers that I have encountered are very concerned about their students' education and will steer them in the right direction if they need help. It is mainly due to PS115 that I did not move out of the neighborhood. I know that my children will become successful and caring individuals from the knowledge they gain from attending PS115Q!!
My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten and is currently starting second grade. She is a part of the gifted and talented program. My husband and I are both teachers, so not only view things as parents, but as educators. We are beyond pleased with P.S. 115! All of the teachers my daughter has had have been nothing more than wonderful! The school is probably one of the last schools around that values the arts and provides education in the arts, despite budget cuts. There is an afterschool program, right within the school building, that provides additional educational and extracurricular activities. The parent coordinator is helpful and resourceful. The principal takes time to listen to and address parental concerns, and is genuinely a wonderful person. I highly recommend this school!!!
School with excellent teachers and great staff. The teachers are seriously committed to improve the student's deficiencies.
My daughter used to attend this school. The only way they communicate is by yelling. Most of the time the teachers do not have control of the class. The teachers are only focused on the state testing and the students only learn about state testing. They need a severe teacher evaluation.
My daughter use to attended PS 115 Q when she was a student there she was involved in everything. The school always show the parents that they care about the students and the parents. When my daughter needed extra academic help they gave the extra help she needed . It is a wonderful school both Principals and the parent coordinator was awesome. I would recommend this school to anyone.
My child had a horrible experience here...school is overcrowded and could be unsafe. School is so overcrowded some grades have to have their lunch at 10:30 a.m.. Children are not properly supervised during recess time. School promotes a bully-free environment but then teachers and assistants could downplay when the bully is an exceptional student....This does nothing but harm children. School is made up of mostly Indians since it is set in an Indian community. Principal is very nice and personable but there is only so much that can be done due to the amount of students in the building.
I read the two previous comments, I think maybe these parents' ideas or suggestions just won't work for the school that's why the school did not take it, and that doesn't mean they're defensive and go against those parents. My daughter is first year here for pre-K, I talk to staffs and teachers, the way the principal speak, I see nothing wrong. It's just that you have to ask yourself, is your ideas or suggestions reasonable or not? What effort can you put in to work with the school to improve it and it's program(s)? Please, think before you act and rate the school.
Unfortunately the Principle is very disrespectful and dismissive towards parents that do voice their concerns. Any ideas parents offer for improving the school are taken as criticisim by the principle and he reacts in a very defensive manner, quick to point the finger elsewhere instead of acknowledging that certain things need to change! This is no way to improve the school!!
Parents should stop patronizing the school staff. Many have pulled their kids out of the GNT program. One is left with no option but to vent it out in this forum, because you are not heard here.
my kids are doing very good here , teachers r good.... and my daughters r doing good here....
My son has been attending this school since 2009. The school got a C grade under this year NYC grading system. This might be the lowest grade in the entire district 26. Shame on the school admin and staff! The school should have focused more on learning. If possible, I absolutely want to make a transfer to any district 26 school.
My son has been the student of this school since he was in grade 2 and he was also in the after school programme offered by the school.He finished his grade 5 this year.My son has been been exellent student and i am very happy with this school and their after school programme.
