The administration seem to care about education. The teachers are caring. They also seem organized and well informed.
I amvery impressed by how the school gets parents involved and by their commitment to a create a G&T program.
P.S. 174 is a great school. The dedication of the administration and the teachers is overwhelming. The school also has a Parent Association comprised of dedicated parents working hard to enhance the educational experience of students.
The school has a great PTA which consist of parents and school staff. The teachers are also incredible to the students. My daughter loves the school which I assume the emotion is share with all the other students.
Ms. Kayam is not fit for Pre-K teacher. She should be teaching 3rd grade and up because she has no patience for the samll children. She expects all pre-schoolers to do what she commands immediately, like training little soldiers. And the principle has no control over her at all. Laura Hui has been great though.
Mrs. Kelly was horrible teacher and now the principal???? I was shocked to hear this horrible teacher was promoted to principal. She was abusive to my child, picking on my child constantly. She chooses favorites and allows the children to pick on other children and does nothing. For someone as overweight as she is shouldnt allow the fat kids to be picked on. Horrible principal ... I am so glad my child made it thru in one piece. (after much therapy)
Some good teachers (science and history) - mixed bag in terms of classroom teachers; they run the full spectrum. I agree that the administration (principal) is unconcerned (we took our issue to superintndent) but others (assitant principal) are quite good!
This is very family friendly school. Your child is being recognized by many workers. That is why school is very safe. The principal and parent coordinator respond to the needs of child or any parents requests in timely and professional manner. It feels like a big family.
It's really good, they have good art and dance program, they have excellent teachers
All personal is helpful and attentive. The children are number one here, you feel welcome everytime. My son loves his class and the school has become an important part in his life.
The children come first. Learning is a priority without the drama of politics. They are very involved with the community and the environment. They get the families involved.
Because they always make my daughter feel like she is family with love and attention
Excellent school with great teachers. Keeps parents well informed. My son loves going to school and it is a real prove of how good the school is.
Overall this is a great school. But there sre some teachers with some race bias..
My son is in the G&T program. Their teacher not only provides special nourishment for the curious mind, but also for the spirit of the kids. 'I don't prepare them for the exams. I prepare them for life.' said the teacher. Bravo!
I think the academic program is excellent, is organize and the kids feel they are in a save enviroment, where they can count on the teachers and other school leaders.
Dedicated Parents Association thank you for making a difference in our school community!! We have a committed group of stay at home, part time & full time working parents that do so much to make their children s world better! Looking forward to seeing more parents volunteer and participate in this important initiative. It is a great time for us to step beyond our day-to-day routines and partner with our wonderful school to drive the continued success of our students!
I have been very happy with the teachers, academics, communications from shcool, and music program! Unfortunately there are not many extras in this school.
This school is very quiet and well organized. Parents are very welcome. Teachers are well trained and nice to the students.
