P4@179 is a great school! My son has been there for 5 years and I feel fortunate to have him there. The staff is very attentive, everybody knows his name, the principal is supportive, and my son LOVES going to school - never a complaint. They deal with issues effectively and efficiently and I'm pleased.
I have Two Sons there with behavioral issues and they have been both helpful and supportive throughout school year, the PTA is strong and there is a caring and wonderful Principal who goes above and beyond for the families of the school. Its all about how much time and effort parents put into your school, what you get out of it, Administration has always been very attentive and on every issue, teachers truly teach and it has become my son's second home, hat's hard to say about an urban school but it's been a godsend to our family to be given spots at this school and the P4 family!
