Our child has had a solid education at PS 9. There is a dynamic parent body that supports events. The teachers and administration have responded to queries and concerns admirably.

Presently, all 3 of my boys attend PS-9. 2 of them are in the G&T and the other is in the Gen Ed, as the G&T program no longer exists for incoming students, We have been very happy with all aspects of the school- Principal, Teachers, Offfice, and Parent Involvement. And- the money raised each year thru fundraisers helps pay for an assistant teacher in EVERY class, in addition to some instruction in chess (for lower grades) and Spanish for all. Overall, the children perform well on NYS exams. We're very happy with the school.

My two children graduated from this school. The Principal, most of the teachers, and the Guidance Counselor are great. I had children in both of the programs and they both excelled and attended a great middle school (Delta Honors). I just wish that the parents in the Renaissance Program were more involved.

My daughter attends this school. Ms. Brady is a phenomenal Principal. The teachers are all above average and hand picked by Ms. Brady. Pleasant and very helpful General Office, as well as, a super attentive and involved PTA, and a superbly planned curriculum makes this the stellar school of the entire NYC public school system. Only downside: School's popularity increases the real possibility of overcrowding in the coming years.

We have had two children at PS 9 for two years now, and it has been a great experience. The leadership is great, the teachers are top-notch, and the PTA is amazing. There are various enrichment activities, projects, and exciting field trips throughout the year. One thing I would say though is that at PS 9, there is a very sharp distinction between the general ed class and the gifted and talented classes. You see it in the ethnic composition of the students, level of classroom discipline, and the depth of the projects that get undertaken. This is not so evident at younger grades but very obvious in upper grades. The teacher quality is excellent in both, however. The ESL teacher is simply magical - so competent, so good with kids. Great arts and music programs. They could increase the amount of homework though - my daughter barely had any.

It is the most nurturing environment for an elementary school age child. It is all about the kids - and the entire school community supports this entirely. We have two kids there and couldn't imagine them anywhere else...
