My child had to pray before she walked in here! The teacher would yell at her if she asked a question, and she would answer back, kindly saying "I didn't mean to be rude" and the teacher would call her a little demon, and she was nasty to my friends' child also, thank The Lord that they teach Math.......

This was my school from pre- to 3 grade. Only reason I don't go to this school anymore is because I moved to Maryland but this was and always be the best school ever..

I went to this school from third to fifth grade and it was truly amazing. There is a safe learning environment and the teachers are the best of the best.

The principal of PS176 is rude and has a pompous attitude . She lacks communication skills and she has no communication with the students. The office staff are rude as well and very short with you. You will not find a welcoming environment at PS176. The staff and principal have to be micro-managed. Some how the principal thinks being tight lipped and rude is being a professional. This principal should learn to look up and not down.

Great school, Strong leadership from entire staff. Here's a school where the Principal is always involved and shows concern for all involved (students, staff and parents). It's refreshing to see hands on deck from all.

I really like the overall spirit of the school. The Principals, Teachers, Staff and PTA really work well together to create a real family atmosphere of caring and nurturing of the students. The teachers' passion for connecting with each students is amazing and comforting, especially for new students entering the public school system for the first time. The upper class students on honor roll help as "Tutors" in the classrooms to assists Pre-K and K classes. They are delightful and encouraging to the students and act as role models of academic achievers. It is unfortunate that the parent involvement is not higher. The have a wonderful PTA board who are devoted and passionate about giving of their time, but they can't do it all. All parents must know that staying involve in your child's lives inside and outside of the home is a must!

There are lots of educational activities to help kids boost up their love for school and most of all learning. Parents are updated with the schools every day activities.

I so like this school that I wish it would go up to grade 8. It saddens me that my child has to leave after grade 5. The school is great, the Principal is excellent. It the right 'village' to raise a child.

The school has some really amazing Teachers that go the extra mile. Some of the class sizes are too big and I wish there was more unification of parents and staff

PS 176 is a great school , the principal is no non sense really have it together the teachers are great. The only down side is I think the kids should have gym more than once a week.

Gym program for the younger grades needs to be improved. They need more activites to do in gym. They should also have a sports night for the kids. Compare to other schools there art program needs major improvement.
