Ps 189 5

This is a great school. Everyone in the building cares about the well being of each child. From custodians to principals, from school aids to teachers, everyone takes time to meet the needs of the students. My son is currently in the third grade and enjoys learning very much. He even comes home practicing the typing skills learned in computer class and the songs learned in music. I love this school.

Excellent teachers and administrators. I went to this school and really love how great it still is. My brother currently attends the fifth grade and it's unbelievable how much effort his teacher puts so that he succeeds. I commend the school and the people who work there for a great job.

I am an alum of this school and now my son is attending. This is a very good school, it shows students the fundamentals they need to succeed. I have seen many people including myself prosper because of this school. The principal i s excellent, the teachers are excellent and even the school aides are excellent.

Programs need improvement. There needs to be more extracurricular activities and as far as parent involvement not many parents get involved. Personally the teachers to date that I have dealt with have been very helpful.
