I was a student at this school, I really liked it. It is clean, some teachers are fun but others are strict. This school is good. I started at second grade. I miss this school. M.s Geller, the new principal is nice, understanding, very qualified. If you behave good you wouldn't have a problem. I liked the way they teach. This school has dual language. In gym, my class played fun games. The teacher quality is pretty good . Any one who goes to this school will love it. I recommend it.
This school used to be really good with nice teachers and bright children.But over the years they started hiring rude teachers that sometimes cursed and talked in slang.The school progress report went from an A to a D.Some teachers also have no patience.They lose their temper easily.Ever since they and the rude lunch ladies were hired it started becoming a bad school.It wasn't the principal's fault the children's fault or the teacher's fault.Hopefully, the new principal,Mrs.Geller, can turn thing around.I am a 6th grader that just bothered to review and I went to this school since kindergarten.All my teachers were nice.They were Mrs.A (I forgot her full name),Mrs. Calpakis, Mrs. Davenel, Mrs. Hoar,and Mrs. Agosto and Mrs. Seitz..I forgot my kindergarten teacher but her name started with a C.This is a fair school.
My daughter attend to dual language program and she loves her teachers. She enjoys going school, and learning very well. There are many good teachers there but it is true that there are some teachers who does not seem qualified. Some of the office staff are very rude and speak with no courtesy to the parents or visitors (I often want to cover my daughters ears.) It is unfortunate to have these people who destroy the reputation of other great teacher's hard work. It seems former principal, Mrs. Janet Farrell did not care those too much. I hope new Principal I.A., Mrs Geller will act quickly for change and hire appropriate teachers and office staff. Like Reply
i have heard lot of nice things about the school, but the office stuffs are the worst. I've never seen someone so rude, mean and arrogant people in my entire life like these people. some teachers are so messed up that they make the parents are cry. I have tell some names for the sake of the children this teacher ms. herring she is the most rude person in the world. i dont know how could people behave this rudely with kindergarten childrens. i wish i could find proper authority to make complaint about them.
The teachers are kind and they work quickly. Students are kept on track with the rest of the world.
i believe this school is excellent. i have seen such an improvement in my child's academics. i am extremely happy that my son attends a school that has loving and caring teachers, i was amazingly shocked that their progress report grade was a D.
My daughter has been going to p.S 166 since kindergarten. Now she's in the 4th grade. Her average is exceptional. I love that all the teachers,welcomed her with open arms even when she was a tough cookie in the beginning. I love that all the teachers embrace the student as if they were their own. And when you have a staff with those credentials your child will grasp the learning experience on a higher level.
I very happy with the school , my child is learnig a lot,some teacher are great.the only think they should change the people from the office they don't do much to help the parent around and are very rude over the phone, i think the principal need to do more. with the learning is a very good school.
In my opinion PS166 is good, they have a new program with children name Dual Language Program for de first time in this school. I still need more information about this new program, My daugther is in this program, each day one group is taught with Spanish teacher the other day it is English. She is learning how to write and read in Spanish and write and read in English.
Very happy with PS 166. Teachers are very motivated and have great communication with the parents.
