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! :-)

This school has been ok for my kids. They came from private school it was a difficult transition for them, but the teachers there helped a lot.
