This school is amazing i still go there now and can i tell you how much i love it! It's so convenient because it goes to headstart all the way to 8th grade. The teachers are so loving and the prepare us for the real world. Im going to be said to leave in a few years but i have to leave someday! I know all the teachers because i been there since headstart, all the teachers care for all the kids and has so many inspirational assemblies! Of course there are some problems but what school doesnt have problems? There is some of drama but its fixed right away with all our great teachers to help us! All the kids are so nice and loving, we are one big huge 140 family!

At one point in time this was one of the best schools in district 1 but it's like the saying goes all good things gotta come to come to an end. Mr. Barrentos after 30 years decided it was time to retire and man oh man why this school is now stuck with a "principal" that doesn't seem to know her job. Her staff tells her what to do. Situations occur and you don't know about it till your child tells you. Teachers can not handle the kids and complain all day about it and the best one is the adult "administration" talk to the little kids like they are grown ups, such as telling a 3rd grader they can't stand them. Only plus with this school is the school safety command is in this building so there is no way in hell anything dangerous can happen.

PS 140 is amazing! They truly want children to learn and will take the time to teach the kids that aren't able to learn as quick as the others. Their staff is courteous, sympathetic and have great technics to teach children. If they had additional funding they would definitely put it to good use. My eldest graduated from this school and my little one is still there and he loves the teachers and so did my eldest. They take the time to not only teach them education; they also teach them social skills and responsibility. When asked from other parents about PS 140 I can only think of positive things to say. From the moment you walk in the building you are greeted and willing to help you or steer you in the direction you need. I'm happy my kids went and still go to PS140. My son now in High School is pleased to pick up his brother at PS140 as it gives him a chance to see his previous teachers and catch up with the staff. He said he would never forget them. They truly deserve to win the $5000.
