My son been going to this school from p-k he is going to 5 grade..When I moved to long Island city...They told me the school was bad...I didnt listen to anybody my son school was P.S 166...I say to my self I am going to ask the principal if my son can go to P.S 111 jacob blackwell..She said yes...I've been volunteering since Pre-K to 4th grade I be volunteering until my son finishes his school.. I am a very devoted parent, there's a lot that goes on and every school you just have to experience it yourself never listen to anybody..there was one incident and they took care of it..They are good teacher..There is alot of programs in this school..I never had a problem in this school..
this school sucks whats wrong with u ppl i think the teachers are pretending to be parents giving good reviews my daughter attended this school for two years was the worse school ever they need to close it i beleive it is a school for teachers who are learning and have no clue and teachers who are out the door almost
I cannot believe the reviews below. These parents are obviously unaware of the school's test scores. They should be referred to school digger.com or "org", I'm not sure which. These scores are abysmal. I attended this school when it opened in 1949. I am now 72 years old. I remember the school very well. These test scores should not be tolerated. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. IT IS SO UNFAIR TO THE CHILDREN.
P.S. 111 has made great progress sincemy niece began attending this school last year. The principal continues to look for new ways to improve the school and make it a safe enviornment for the children.
Great Principal, great teachers, great community support... Definitely a rising star! My daughter is in the 4th grade and has to pay the teacher monthly rent for her seat in class out of their play money salary, which they earn by successfully doing their job (classroom chores). They also pay fees for missing assignments, incomplete assignments, or not obeying the classroom rules. There are incentives for the students with the most earnings. I love it! My daughter refuses to lose any money and her goal is to make as much money as she can. This teacher is a genius! :-)
