This is a nurturing community/school. My child is very happy, is learning, has great teachers and lots of enrichment. The school is always trying to improve and is very accessible. Lots of engaged parents, too and a very diverse community.

This school is a gem and serves a very diverse population, both in terms of backgrounds and learning styles. It has ELL, Special Ed, General Ed and G and T and the school embraces them all. The principal is straightforward and accessible, the teachers are caring and engaging. My child is in the gifted program and her teachers have been fantastic. I think all children are valued and the school is not afraid to incorporate technology and new approaches to learning. There is a great science lab/teacher, music, robotics, chess, etc. and also a great afterschool program, Serious Fun. Couldn't be happier. It's a special place where children are happy!

This school is dedicated to the children in all aspects. Teachers are 100% in my book. My daughter has been in the school since Pre-K and even before that she wanted to be in this school. It's like a family to us.

My son attends PreK at P.S. 85Q and it really has been an amazing experience for him. He had a rough time transitioning into leaving me, but the teachers, the paraprofessional and other PreK parents were so supportive that now, he is fully adjusted and learning so many things! I can't say enough good things about the PreK program. In less that a few months, he has learned to write his name, his alphabet and so much more. I highly recommend this PreK program, you won't find more dedicated teachers, aides, even the social worker is available for you!

My son attended Pre-K at PS 85. When I first enrolled him into the Pre-K program I was unsure if he was ready since he was only 3 1/2. Apparently he was and the school had been great to him from day 1. His teacher was great and we will definately have a hardtime explaining to him why she will not be his teacher next year. The school as a whole is good. We receive letters everyday explaining what is going on each week and as far as the principal is concerened, she is very nice and you are able to communicate with her on any matter. My only complaint is that the school is located directly next to the N train line which means noise! There are no AC's in the classrooms which mean in the the summer days the windows are open and the trains are going by. Very disruptive! In all A-
