Great teachers and caring administration. Involved and passionate parents. Smart children.
A great community driven to help improve the school and create a wonderful learning environment for our kids
PS 166 students are fortunate to have a school with a fantastic energy, brought to it by dedicated faculty and a highly engaged parent body. When you walk through the front doors, you immediately sense that the students and faculty are happy to be there.
I cannot say enough good things about this school. The teaching is exemplary. The classrooms exciting. The children engaged. My son, who switched from a private school, has never been happier, more challenged, and excited about learning. I only wish we began here in kindergarten. What a gem
Having been a supervisor of instruction, a professor of education, and a basic education administrator for a long career, I have a very critical eye when visiting classrooms and watching instructional activities. The program selection, the enrichment opportunities for learning different children is notable and an atmosphere where 'learning progress' is key, makes PS 166 a school of which to be proud. I feel extremely confident that children at PS166 are receiving an excellent and challenging education. My career has been in upper middle class achieving school districts and this 'urban gem' is every bit as good as any I have seen.
It is an inclusive, public, community school providing a wonderful education for our kids....what more could anyone ask for in this day & age?!!!!
The existing small classes, and highly involved teachers are something any school can achieve, given decent management (regardless of how rare such management seems to be). This school exists in a fine, historic school building that gives the kids a sense of history, and the value of institutions that have existed long before they were born. This is a much needed sense in our contemporary society, where 40 year old schools are 'obsolete' according to popular opinion. Teardowns of perfectly good buildings, and disregard of time proven principles will not be lightly endorsed by these future citizens.
My grand-nephew is very bright and creative. P.S. 166 is the best school for him. He is challenged, feels safe and has made many new friends. He couldn't be happier!
PS 166 provides all students with a rich curriculum. Its teachers are up to date with technology and give students opportunity to enhance their knowledge. PS 166 takes seriously students health. Besides having the most professional and caring nurse, PS 166 (since last year) started a Going-Green campaign. Posting 'No Idling Signs' and switching its cleaning products. Debbie Hand is a dedicated principal which works extra hours and wears many hats. I can't think of having my daughter in no other school.
My two grandchildren attend P.S. 166. They enthusiastically embrace their academic studies, artistic programs and enriching field excursions. Much of their eagerness to participate in school activities is due to the excellence of the curriculum along with the energy and commitment of faculty. Bravo P.S. 166!
PS 166 has given the opportunity for my niece to ' love ' school . It has been a combination of discipline and creativity. Each day she comes home excited and ready to learn and explore more.
Our teachers and principal are committed to the children and families of PS166.
I have twin daughters who are currently in second grade. The school has an amazing student body with incredibly supportive principal, administrative team and teachers. There is tremendous commitment by the parents to support both physically (in time) and financially the academic goals of the students. We have great partnerships with local cultural organizations. It is a wonderful community that is enriching the lives of my family.
The teaching staff is wonderful - thanks to them the kids love going to school and have developed a true love of learning. The administration is also impressive and works very well with the teachers, the parents and the kids.
Motivated principal. Very active PTA. Bringing green consciousness to the community.
PS 166 has an amazing principal in Debbie Hand and wonderful teachers. Most importantly, it has a great parent community.
We love Ms. Turner - and my daughter loves to go to school everyday and can't wait to learn!
I love PS 166 because of the fabulous administration, enthusiatic teachers, involved parents and great kids. It is a wonderful and caring community!
