Bullies. Bad teachers. Students who are full of themselves. This is all I think of when I look back on my experiences at this school. I was miserable because I couldn't do as well as the teachers all pressured us to do. I was bullied for my looks. It's all about the popular and good-looking kids here. They get the most attention and help from teachers. Every other student who isn't as lucky gets neglected. I am happy to say that I have since moved and no longer have to attend this terrible, terrible school.

This school has taught me a lot. Yes , it provides a lot of intelligence for the students and extracurricular activities. But there are flaws. Some of the teachers are very kind and supporting, this helps a student feel comfortable . But there is some teachers whose behaviors are ridiculous. Some are very prejudice and judgemental. They also sometimes insult the student . I remember I would be afraid to go to class. Not only did I have to be in fear between the judgemental students , who bully you for sexuality or just by the way you look. But I had to fear some teachers. Even though I went to deans to consult these problems. All they do is give a lecture to the child and that's the end of it. The students continue to bully you. This school overall is good with its teaching professions. But the way students treat each other or the way some teachers treat the students is not acceptable. I'm very glad I don't go to this school anymore. All I can say is thank you for teaching me what I needed to know.

This is my son's 4th year here in p.s.113. I love this school!! I was nervous when my Don was entering 3rd grade because I though it would Be so hard for him. He had Ms. Kelly and has her again now in 4th grade. She is a fabulous teacher! I couldn't be more pleased!! My son is doing So much better since he has been with her. I wish she could be his teacher til he graduates!

This school SUCKS. The principal that took over after our last principal passed away is horrible. Learning used to be fun, now it's not. I used to look forward to coming to school every day. The teachers demand more out of students than they can really put in and constantly try to pressure us into trying harder. The lunch food is grotesque. I've found many things in it that I'm SURE aren't supposed to be in there. Students are rowdy and even after being disciplined, continue to bully and tease and misbehave. There are only afterschool programs for the students in middle school. All of the good teachers have either retired or left. Do whatever you have to do to keep your child out of here. Every single recent positive review is WRONG. I honestly can't wait to leave this horrible excuse for a school.

THIS SCHOOL IS A DREAM SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I recentley started going here and so far I am loving it! The teachers here are great! They are encouraging to students and belive the best in them. I aslo know that there are great programs like glee club and beautiful me. The cafetaria food is okay but I bring my own lunch from home, The hall ways are clean and shiny. If you are looking for a middle school or elematry school, P.S/ I.S 113 is the answer!

My oldest son is been there for four years now, and he just loves the school. He said that he wishes to be in no other place but PS 113. He loves his classmates, his teachers who are very involved and caring, and the new principal who's young and energetic. I believe that he's right, and I like the principal too. He's trying to bring in some changes, and to "speed up" a bit the rhythm there. Furthermore, he and his staff have to put up with older kids who are not very easy to deal with, since the school is now IS as well. That means that they got older students, grades 7th and 8th, and it is much harder to maintain discipline and high academic results now.

This is an excellent school with caring teachers and staff. It should have better parent involvement in the younger grades. The teachers strive for high grades and really support the children in there work. The principal and assistant principal are very approachable. Great school.

I attended this school during the 80's. I am so happy to read that it is as excellent today as it was back then. The teachers I had were involved, caring and encouraging. The atmosphere was relaxed and there was a charismatic and involved Principal (Mr. Gewirtz) at the heart of it all. Terrific experience! It's great to see that the culture there has carried on to today.


Posted February 12, 2012

I looked for schools for my son when he was starting Kindergarten and came across ps. 113. I read all the reviews online and they reviews were all mostly good. It also happens to be my sons zone school. So I was pleased that he would be attending this school. I have to say that I am truly happy with this school, teachers & staff they really care. They have a wonderful way of teaching and getting the kids on board. My son is now in the 1st grade and has really blossomed, its amazing to see him excel. I hope his experience with his further grade teachers are as a positive experience as the last two years.

I do not have a comparison with other schools since this is my only experience so far with public schools (my child is in first grade). I cannot express enough my gratitude towards Mr.Pranzo and the entire staff at PS/IS113Q. It is a wonderful environment for children, strict but warm and welcoming, as school should be. My child is happy every day before and after school. The parent-teacher/school communication maintained via email is one of the few things that makes this school outstanding. There are workshops and science fairs, book fairs, trips, afterschool programs, dance programs, a Glee club, gatherings for parents and PTA, overall a great family environment for all of us to grow into. Thank you all!

Best school in Queens! As a former paraprofessional, I have worked in many schools. This is the one I chose for my children because it is truly the best. Mr. P is amazing! And the school staff is excellent.

I am a proud parent of 2 children that attend PS / IS 113. The teachers are fantastic! My children enjoy going to school every day. The do very well on the state exams and have good grades. I appreciate the constant communication from the Parent Coordinator keeping up to date on school activities. Our PTA also works very hard at fund-raising and giving back to the students.

This school is score oriented, not student oriented. They only practice for the state tests but they didn't augment the knowledge. Also it has almost no after-school activities and if there is, then its chosen by lottery. Plus this school has no recess at all. I believe that every single child should have recess if they dont even have a break between classes. I am very disappointed with this school. I am a former parent.

I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving at P.S. / I.S. 113. The faculty & staff are wonderful. The parent coordinator keeps us informed on upcoming events and things going on in the school.

My daughter has a 3.8 grade point average in college- I credit PS 113 to her success. Great school!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
