My kids just entered this school this year, and although we only have about a month into the school year, my kids and I love this school so far. The school offers many enrichment opportunities along with lots of learning. There is no wasted time at this school. Kids are not put into an auditorium to watch movies, etc. Teachers are excellent, Parent Coordinator top notch, goal-oriented principal excellent PTA, those are just some positive points about this school. It is also now a blue ribbon school. The only thing I disagree with is the inconsistency of uniform use with students. It would be, in my opinion, good if all students wore uniforms!

I have two kids at P.S. 499 (one in second grade and the other in kidergarten). Both love the school and the teachers. I must say the teachers and principal are great. The monthly PTA meetings are very informative and a great chance to meet other pareants. Both of my kids have separate science and art classes, which they really enjoy. The school also has a relationship with Lincoln Center to provide arts enrichment. There are also several events the school holds throughout the year such as field days, earth day fair, halloween fair, book fair, etc. Since there are only two classes per grade, all the kids in each grade know each other. I read on the school's website recently that 499 now offers a free after school program for the middle school kids. I would highly recommend this school.

Great school, my son's teacher is awesome. Principal is great with the kids and certainly want them to grow into being responsible, respectful and great role models. I wish there's an after school program but so far so good. Great PTA

Wonderful school. Very diverse, teacher are all dedicated, caring, and well qualified, the prinicipal a stickler for the rules, but she has a clear goal and works 100% towards to it, and she has her staff completely behind her. The environment is secured and safe, and lends well to calm and good learning environment. School building is very new (10 years I believe) so relatively modern. Located in a great school district with schools such as Queens College, Thompson Harris, and CUNY Law as its neighbors. Being part of Queens College campus has additional benefits such as using the campus resources and facilities. Bus service is great, and the school nurse is wonderful.

To the parent who posted 2/8/2013: I tried the lottery 3 times with my older child--no connections and no success. When I tried the lottery for my 2nd child for kindergarten, she was offered a seat. My older child was waitlisted that year but was eventually offered a seat during the summer. I know a few parents, with no connections or other kids attending the school, whose kids were offered a seat. It is arguably very difficult to get into this school due to its small size (2 classes per grade) and sibling priority. Good luck with trying to find the best education you can for your child! If you are on the waitlist for the school this year and your child was eventually offered a seat, it would be nice for you to update your comment accordingly :-) To All: I am very pleased with the quality of education my kids are receiving at the school. My middle schooler found the transition to be very smooth socially as well. I have also had positive experiences with the principal and vice principal, who have both promptly and professionally addressed all concerns I have had. The PTA is a very active entity and is constantly working to maximize the resources available to students.

I I find it very difficult to understand how only certain students are selected even though it is supposed to be lottery. I have done the lottery several times and my child didn't get in. But, i have a friend that has connections in that school and her daughter was able to get in that school. I guess i don't have the right connections.

Queens College is a great school and all the teachers are lovely. The only thing is, the kids can be a bit...mean sometimes. I'm sorry to say that I left on October 3 and I would like to thank my friends: Sophia, Anuar, Anil, Sakeef, and Zae for helping me along the way because I could not have managed without such an awesome group! I would also like to thank my teacher Mr. Kong. Last but not least, I also want to thank my principal, Ms. Jacob for making the school a great place because the school would not be as good without her.

This is my daughter's 1st year at this school. I must say that the faculty at this school really seem to care about these students. From the security to the principal. They offer so many opportunities to ensure that your child is academically successful. My daughter was offered the opportunity to attend Queens College on Saturdays, working one on one with a teacher for some extra support. They even have a music program. They keep you abreast as to what is going on via website, telephone, email, and newsletters. Good experience thus far.

At PS/IS 499 my daughter is getting art, music, science and social studies lessons in addition to Math, Reading, Writing and Physical Education. She is also performing on the auditorium stage in some of the assemblies directed by the teachers. Since September 2004 my daughter has been enjoying a brand new building equipped with new computers in every classroom and in the library. She has also been eating breakfast and lunch in a neat and spacious cafeteria with clear glass doors which allow seeing from inside the attractive playground outside. So far, I am satisfied with my daughter s progress in this school. She is very happy with her teacher and classmates. PS/IS 499 has an official website and most of the teachers have e-mail addresses which makes it very easy for me to communicate with them. It also has a parent coordinator, and many parents from different cultural backgrounds are highly involved.

This is a very special school located in Queens College campus. The School's partnership of families, teachers and college faculty will foster a school community where children think broadly, critically, and creatively about their world to build connections among all areas of knowledge. Everyone from Principal, teachers to security guards care about this school and their kids so much. Everyone (student and teacher)in this school is doing his/her best to make it to be the best!
