I have just graduated from this school and let me say it was okay. I was only here for 4th to 5th grade but let me tell you one thing, I sure know how this school works. First of all, the classes are too crowded. Whenever I raised my hand it took a while for the teacher to get to me. Another thing is that the classrooms are too small. The rooms are pretty cramped. Some rooms don't have an AC! Some rooms without it don't even have a fan! In my fifth grade class on the last month (June) I wore a tank and shorts and still sweating. Something I really love is that some teachers are really (REALLY) nice yet are also strict, which is good. Another thing I enjoyed was the violin program. Sadly this year they replaced it with creative dance! >:( I prefer violin because out of school, violin classes are expensive. And to add, they spend too much time on movies (during teacher's prep) and extra recess. That is a lot of time wasted. Also, the school was not so organized, since they would give notices at the last minute. That basically states all my complaints so thanks for reading :D. FYI, the science teachers and the 5th grade IGC teacher are some of the best teachers in the world!
P.S. 107 Thomas A Dooley Overall I must say this school is excellent. All my kids are currently attending and up to now all but one teacher was excellent. They really do take the time and effort to attend to the needs of all the children, It's no easy task considering there are approx 30 kids per class. The current principal is too new for me to make a firm judgement, but so far there is nothing negative to report. I have no experience with other elementary schools but one thing that surprised me was the amount of parent involvement at PS 107. Several times a year parents are invited to class. Of course, it's optional but most of the time the classrooms are packed with parents. There are also many workshops for kids and parents led by the parent coordinator. They really do try and promote parent participation. PS 107 also has ZERO tolerance for bullying. One of my kids was a little on the "rough" side the first few years and I can't tell you how many times we were called in. The teachers and school counselor met and spoke with me many times to try to resolve his problems. It took a while but my son finally settled down is a now well adjusted and studious child.
Very disappointed about this school. Few teachers are good.Many others need to move on. Leadership very weak. Classes crowded .
This is a wonderful school. My kids loved learning and attending every day. They have a great Parent Coordinator, who is easy to access for information or help with any situation. The Guidance department works with any issues you might be having school or home to make the year run smoothly with your child. I love this school.
I'm 20 years old now. I went to school at P.S 107 for 3rd and 4th grade and I remember my experience being nothing but good memories. The teachers I had were all great I remember Mrs. Holley (hope i have the spelling correct) being an amazing teacher. If your child goes here I'm sure he or she is having a great experience as did I.
This school is absolutely the best. The school is SUPER clean, which makes for a better learning enviroment. The teachers are so nice and only strict when they have to be. The principal, Mr.Phair is amazing. He is genuinely nice and he makes the school even better. They have so many events and activities for the children.. I miss it so much.
I love this school because it hes a warm, clean, friendly and welcoming look and feel. I also love P.S. 107 because both of my boys grades 5 and 3 also love their school. They love going to school each day, I think we can all agree as parents that there is nothing more important then that. They feel safe and comfortable there each and everyday.
excellent school a lot of great programs and extra activities for the kid true the year.
I love P.S. 107 Dooley because of the time and dedication by both the teachers and parents given to the students every day. There are so many wonderful people intertwined in our children's lives and their genuine intentions of propelling our children forward both intellectually, socially shine through every day. Our principal, Mr. James Phair, is loved and respected both for is vision and dedication to our school and makes us feel like PS 107 is apart of every students family. We feel so fortunate to be a part of the PS 107 community!!!!!
PS 107 is an excellent school. The teachers and faculty are caring and well educated. I am so glad that my children were students there.
As a parent of 3 children attending PS 107 I can honestly say it is a superb school. Mr. Phair and Mrs. Howell are fantastic principals and all the teachers and staff are wornderful. I am only sad that my youngest was not able to have Mrs. Kaufman for 2nd grade this year. We missed her by one year. We hope you are enjoying your retirement Mrs. Kaufman! You are missed at PS 107!!!
This school is commited to children's learning. The teachers and staff are phenomenal! My child did very well & is now in middle school doing great. It's also fun!
P.S. 107 was the best decision that my wife and I made to put our son in. Our son is in special ed and the year that my son is @ PS 107 in their special ed program we have noticed a big improvement. Your teachers and therapists are ace! The principal Mr. Phair and Assistant Principal Patricia Howll are creme ala creme! The parent coordinator Ronnie Malandrakis rocks PS 107. She is the best and the most caring Parent Coordinator that PS 107 has. Ronnie is gold! Gregory Aronoff, you rock Buddy!
Each child's needs are individually addressed. The school offers a wonderful variety of extra programs and activities that enhance the childrens interest in learning. Wonderful well rounded educational experience.
P.S. 107 is great schoold academically and socially. It was a second home for my children and my family. My boys have graduated out of P.S.107 from the IGC program, which was a great experience. They have many programs AIS, speech, Music, Art. Music in the Air is a great experience and alot of fun. The children look forward to going to school each day. The staff is also great from Mr. Phair, the Principal, the teachers to the Parent Coordinator, Ronnie.
PS 107 is a great school! The teachers are great. The school has music, art, dance, weekly assembly programs, a basketball team, cheerleaders, glee clubs, a chess club and, of course, Music In The Air. They have an Art room, 2 lending libraries - junior and senior, 2 science labs and a computer room. It has it all.
PS 107 is a very good school. They teach all children to respect one another and the importance of education. Most importantly they treat all children equal regardless of their disabilities.
I am an alumnus, class of 1967! My son recently graduated 5th grade (class of 2008). This is, by far, the finest elementary school - quality teachers, wonderful and caring principal, excellent programs. It just keeps getting better. My brother and sisters graduated from this school, as well as my husband. Thank you to all the dedicated teachers and principals throughout the years, especially Mr. Phair!! The Sternreich Family
Thanks to a Mr. Phair and Mrs. Howell for being outstanding leaders at PS 107. The PTA works very hard to give the children support all year. Our parent coordinator, Ronnie, always has activities, workshops and an open door for all parents. And the teachers and staff are amazing! What can I say but that PS 107 is a Excellent school!
