PS102 in Queens is one of the best schools in NYC. I believe that one of the reasons that make this such a great school is it's principal, Mr. Pisacano. He really cares about the school and it's students. You won't find that in many of the public schools today. Thank you Mr. Piscano for all you do !!

After reading the parent and students reviews of P. S. 102, I realize the names of the teachers and principal may have changed, but the essence of the school I attended, remains the same. I was a student at P. S. 102 from 1963-64 in Ms. Kalin's 5th period class. Even then, the school was a very warm and caring environment for everyone - especially a newly arrived immigrant as myself. Ms. Kalin was a no-nonsense school marm, who cared deeply about our education. My most memorable moment there occurred on November 22, 1963. I was in a hallway and saw one of the parents who helped in the office (Mrs. Bianchi) crying. I asked what was wrong and she told me the President had been shot. I was not sure what that meant right then. Going back to class, the principal came on the PA and made the same announcement, and then school was dismissed. We've never been the same since. As I close out my own 38-year career as a high school teacher, this school remains very much a cornerstone in my life.

My son is graduating this year and while I am happy he is moving on to high school, I know he will be sad to leave PS 102. This is an excellent school with a great community. I commend all the staff and Mr. Pisacano, the principal, for making it a safe and nurturing environment for my son. Thank you very much and may you all be blessed always.

I wish to thank all of the teachers and staff of PS/IS 102 for helping make my son the person he is today. The caring and nurturing was above and beyond my expectations. I want to also congratulate the graduating class of 2012.

I've just got to say that Ps/Is 102 is one of the best schools in New York. First of all, all of the teachers are great, and they actually know what they're doing. The principal actually builds relationships with the students. We have many activities. All in all, P.s/I.s 102Q is a very good school. I recommend parents to at least apply to this school.You won't be dissapointed.

My daughter is in second grade and I as a parent have excellent experience with the teachers so far. There is always, I am sure as in any other school, teachers that are not I would probably say helpful, as most of them are. Overall it is a great school.

As a parent that went through the NYC public school system herself as well as my now teen daughter, I can attest when I say that my son in 2nd grade is in the best public school I have ever had to deal with as a student and parent. The teachers and staff are all very caring and extremely dedicated to their profession. It's a great priviledge to have my son attend P.S.102Q.

I love Ps 102 Queens because each student is a person not a number. The comunication with the teachers is very personal. They estimulated our kids in all areas. We can breath at the school harmony, peace, enthusiasm, academically for me like a mom is the best!!!

This school is great, i have a second grader and a fourth grader, the principal is so friendly and his door is always open. Most of my children's teachers are great. we only had one or two who weren't that good but they didn't remain in the school.The PTA is great , Ms Arelis is really so supportive and very helpful. we really like Ms.Lynch and Mr.Foy they are the greatest teachers i've met. As for science all 3 science teachers are wonderful. The art teacher Ms.O'Donell is very talented.
