P.S. 199 is a wonderful school and its staff had offered my daughter an enriched program in reading, writing and mathematics. Her kindergarten teacher Ms. Schwartz is exceptional. She differentiates the instruction to meet the needs of every child. She was also an advocate for my daughter and made sure that I submit the application to the gifted and talend program. I am impressed with the strong, supportive community at P.S. 199.

P.S. 199Q is a well run organized school. They have a clear reading and writing program. Teachers care about students and it shows in every way. The principal is always available to parents and genuinely cares about his students. I wish I saw more parents at PTA meetings.

Mr. Inzerillo has brought strong, focused leadership to PS 199. He was a dynamite teacher. Always very caring and dedicated to the students. He is even more dedicated than ever before! We are happy and proud top have Mr. Inzerillo as our principal.

P.S. 199Q has a new primcipal, Anthony Inzerillo. Mr. Inzerillo taught thid grade, ESL to adults, writing and conducted parent workshops. He is kind, compassionate and tough when he needs to be. Hi is an amazing teacher and always motivates the children. Even though my child no longer attends 199Q, Mr. Inzerillo still calls to see how he is doing. When Mr. Inzerillo left PS 199Q to become a vice principal, the parents and students were vey sad. He returned as principal and we are very lucky and fortunate to have him! We love you Mr. Inzerillo!

Although definitely overcrowded with large classes, PS 199 staff truly care about the students. Art programs, music, computers, physical ed including recess are all offered for the children. The school also makes every effort to help working parents by offering early arrival breakfast at 7:45 and an after-school program until 5:45 which includes different activities every day and 1 hour of home help. The principal, Mr. Inzerillo was originally a 3rd grade teacher and is extremely involved in all the daily activities. I believe it helps that his experience teaching is recent enough so that he has not lost touch with the goals of both teachers and students. My thanks to the staff of PS 199 for a job well done.

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. 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 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.
