This is my child's 2nd full year in this school. I've watch this school go through growing pains and a new administration in Ms. McClendon. I am happy with the progress that I see the school making. The security staff always have a smile on their face. The secretaries are great. I love my daughters teachers in Ms. Miles and Ms. Yunie. If I had my way my child would be in their class until she leaces P.S. 175. Now if the parents association would step up their game then we would be one of the best school in the district.
The moment I stepped into P.S.175, I loved the reception that I got from the security to the parent coordinator. The principal is awesome, and her office staff is great. Kudos to Ms. Hardy, she has a wonderful personality. My daughter's Pre-K teachers Ms. Diaz & Ms. Pajamps are wonderful and extremely helpful. I see great improvement in my daughter's developmental skills.
This school could really be great if the administration stepped up its game. There are some great teachers that really motivate our children and make them want to learn and acheive greatness. But the adminstration lacks in planning and efficiency. They are organized and it takes th parents to get the ball rolling often on things that the adminstration should be leading.
My daughter came to this school in April 2007 after transfering from a Charter School. What a great improvement in terms of parent friendly Principal, Office Staff, School Base Suppport Team and Ms. Tatiana the School Based Parent Coordinator, I find that when I have questions and not sure what to do, I can always approach her in the morning, she is always the first face I see next to Security every morning. This will be my daughters first year in P.S. 175, I am very hopeful that this school year experience will be much better then last years. I want to thank the staff for making it such a smooth transition for my family. Submitted by: Eula M. Young, parent of 2nd grader
This is my 2nd grader's 2nd year in PS 175 and Principal Foster is the best. She has made great strides in turning this school around from the prior leadership. The staff is kind and encouraging and the parent teacher coordinator Ms. Tatiana is right on point with adressing the needs. The school lacks security in certain places like the perimeter and stairwell, but is overall a good school.
The information that you have on the site is from 2002, therefore, you do not have the wonderful progress that our students have made on the state exams. The schools environment has improved dramatically this past year thanks in large part to the new parent coordinator Tatiana Sampson. My child has been in the building for over 6 years and she is graduating this semester. She has done well academically thanks to the great teachers that Ms. Foster the principal has.
