This is our 2nd year in the school - Kindergarten and 1st grade. We are very happy with the teachers who have been teaching/working with our child. Lines of communication remain open throughout the year. Memos,notes, emails, class websites, phone calls etc are all frequently used to share info with parents. They are welcoming to ideas, suggestions, and open to discussing any concerns the parents have in regards to the kids or overall classroom environment. The classrooms are bright, colorful and stimulating and inviting. In our class, the parents are all very involved and help whenever possible, whether it be chaperoning field trips, story time in the classroom or volunteering at bake sales, book fairs, etc. We also communicate with each other to keep everyone up to date on what's happening in the class and the school Your child's success in this (or any school) is largely dependent on the administration, teachers and parent involvement. Overall, PS 165 is a great school, as is the neighborhood and community. Our child is well adjusted, learning a great deal and overall very happy in this school. We are thrilled with her teachers and are happy we chose this school.

There is a 5th grade teacher named Morales-- if you think this might be the same teacher, you could sent a note to the school or stop by the office sand leave a note. Good luck!

PS/MS 165 is undergoing an incredible transformation of quality education supported by a refreshing educational staff determined to achieve academic excellence for our children. This is largely owed to the uncanny leadership of Brett Gallini, the school s principal. Through hands-on involvement and encouragement of collaborative work between teachers and parents, he demonstrates his commitment to our children s success and holds his staff accountable to it. My child was performing under average and in one semester we have seen his grades rise to the upper nineties and the lowest grades are now in the mid-eighties. Teachers are available to assist children in their learning endeavors as they make themselves available before or after classes. Facts speak more than words, but in order to obtain these results the school needed a visionary who believes in children and understands the importance of a strong educational network to support them. I have no doubt that this will shortly be one of the most sought out public school in the Upper West Side. Parent

I've been a PS 165 parent for over six years. I understand the frustrations of parents in the Columbia neighborhood. Private school is too expensive and all parents are told is the better schools are in the southern part of this school district but you have to either a) live there, b) test in, or c) be willing to sit on a long waiting list. It must be noted that the key components contributing to academic success are; 1) a working and effective administration, 2) dedicated and talented teachers and staff, and 3) children with parents who are involved, invested, and supportive. My children have been successful academically and socially at 165. My oldest is in the Delta program at MS54 and she came from 165. We already have an amazing principal and very dedicated and talented teachers and staff. We just need more parents who understand the value of education to help us set an example at our school so that other parents will follow suit.

Our son spent two months in this school and then switched to a nearby Catholic school. His teacher was excellent. The atmosphere and discipline in the classroom were excellent. However, outside the classroom things are very different: discipline is lacking (one time our son was punched by another pupil and we didn't even get a phone call about this, we found out from him at the end of the day. At least twice in this two month period I witnessed fights between older children from the middle school in the same building which required adults restraining the participants. The administration is distant and unresponsive.

P.S. 165 IS A GOOD SCHOOL, THE TEACHERS CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN LEARNING EVERYTHING THAT IS TAUGHT. THEY COME IN EARLY AND STAY LATE TO WORK WITH YOUR CHILD, IF THEY SEE THE CHILD NEEDS SPECIAL ATTENTION. ITS A SCHOOL THAT CARES ABOUT THE CHILD.

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 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.
