I attended this school when I was younger and my daughter attends this school now. I love it!! My daughter wakes up every morning excited to go to school. Her teachers Ms. Genny and Ms Willie are great! They learn something new everyday. My daughter learned to write her name in 1 week. and she is now fluent in spanish after just 2 months of school.

My daughter attends this school and I've been happy thus far. There is continuity thru out the grades and the teachers are consistent. Some of the children have behavior problems but the principal tries to stay on top of things. I would definately recommend this school...it is far better than any other neighboring school in the area.

My son attends the nest program at this school. The entire team of professionals working with him are top of the line, best of the best in NYC.

The principal is full of energy, her office is full of books and the school is a model school. Staff is all very capable. Overall a pretty great school.

This is a great school that your children could attend. It is a good beginning for any child to attend P.S. 112. The Staff shows alot of love and concern for each and every student in the school.My children where students at P.S 112 and they have manage to be very successful at there following Choose of Schools because of the preparation they receive for P.S. 112.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
