I attended PS 89 70 years ago. Yes, 70 years ago. Back then, we were taught the right skills in the right ways by the best teachers. Today, not so much. The other reviewers can't spell or punctuate or write a coherent sentence that doesn't require me to fill in gaps in their wording. No one who's going to be an ophthalmologist would spell the word as opthamologist. Good grief. The comments published here are insulting to readers of them. Don't you agree? Back to Sesame Street, all of ya.

My daughter just graduated from PS 89 Q, I think that we have a very good staff n teachers. The members of the leadership is very good they are always working together to help the students, parents n staff and finding new programs to help the students. The principal is always thinking in the future of the kids, and he also work with the teachers to help the kids that needs. help. His office door is always open for the parents for any question they have. My daughter was very happy to be in that school, 3 of my kids graduated there. I know she is going to miss her school. The principal always try to do programs after school to help kids with reading n math. and in anything they need. We also have a very good afters school program in our school that help for the community in our school. We have a very nice first step program to help little kids from 2 to 4 to learn colors, shapes, etc. numbers, so when they go to Preschool they are ready. I love my school and I am thankful for all the member there to help us and be always there for us.. I give and A to PS 89Q that is why a lot of people wants to be in our school
