Ps 120 2

My daughter transfered from another school due to my work. She's in first grade now, class size teacher/student ratio is: 1:32... one teacher has to take care of 32 students without an assistant, that means if the teacher talks to each student privately, that's 1 minute and 30 seconds til a period is over. :( secondly, taking kids to school in the morning and picking up kids after school is a nightmare. Kids get to squeeze in front of the main entrance while some parents watching their kids going into the school. Come on, can we all line up? Picking up students happens in the back of the school (the Playground), Rainy days? kids have to wait in the rain to be picked up? Otherwise, staying inside that little hallway and pin-point who's-who? And the Afterschool YMCA program....don't want to talk about it...Let other parents get some commends on that one!!

This school has changed over the years. The staff isn't very welcoming. Also my daughter did not have a good experience. I do not recommend this school.

Great teachers! My child loved every teacher that they had from 2007-2012. There are so many new teachers now. Most of the good teachers left because of the principal. Very, very bad principal.

This school is more than a regular elementary school. Excellent teachers and staff. I can't say anything good about the principals secretaries besides the fact that they are extremely rude. The teachers really do prepare your kids for JHS.

Went here in 1999-2001. I thought it was a pretty good school. The teachers were pretty awesome and good when I went there. I know the science teacher who rolled her trolley into our class every now and then was really good. Does miss Blouse, Mrs. Silberman or mr Q still teach here?

My Daughter is in this school right from Kinder garden and this is the best place she could be. The teachers are so loving and caring including the principal as well.

When my eldest daughter went to this school it was wonderful. All of the teachers were marvelous and checked her homework and classwork on a daily basis. They corrected every little mistake and helped her become an excellent writer. They built up her vocabulary by giving 20 words every week and a test at the end. I sent my other two daughters thinking that they would receive the same education that my eldest daughter received. However, this did not happen. All of the skilled teachers retired and now the teachers are not as great. Now there is a new principle. It is her first year so I cannot say much about her. This year was a bad year academically but we can only pray for the best.The principle should become strict and observe classroom routines. That is the only way we will get back the Golden Days of P.S. 120.
