Although I live in another state, just watching the PS22 Chorus love what they are doing is enough for me to rate this school high. The support that Gregg Breinberg must receive from the administration shows in the results he has with the children. Watching music programs from other schools on Youtube, and then watching this chorus shows that the school deserves praise. The chorus is possibly the best 5th grade public school chorus in the United States.

Nope faculty show no respect to students, so students shoe them no respect! They are unfair

It isn't a terrible school I did love the teachers they really love what they do and it shows! The negatives about this school are overcrowding, the principal isn't the greatest she's very sweet and cares about the kids but doesn't have the backbone required for such a school the assistant principals aren't helpful and actually rude to parents. I won't say our experience was terrible here but the school needs an overhaul in administration to make it better!

Principal needs to go!!!! She is very sloppy and seems discombobulated at times. She always let the PTA steals the money from the school and they get away with because she just completely sweeps it under the rug. Shameful!!!

I think the school has a good PTA, and a good staff in spite of the administration. The principal and some of the assistant principals do not belong there. The school still ranks a "C." This would not have occurred with the former principal, Mrs. C.

Both of my kids went to this school for pre-k and WE LOVED IT! The school is a safe, happy place. The teachers are all approachable and friendly, as are the secretaries and principal. Both my kids adore the pre-K teachers. We only left because we are zoned for another school and got into 22's pre-K by lottery.

What I love most about P.S. 22 are the teachers and administrators, they know each child by name and let each of them feel as if 22 is a family not a cold building with kids.

security is very tight in this school which gives me a peace of mind that my child is safe at all times.

My rating on this school is a 7. I love the school and so does my kindergardener. She has Ms Paribello and she loves her. I like her as well. My daughter is doing very well in her class and she loves going to school everyday. Some of the teachers need to dress more proffesional and not like they just rolled out of bed. That is my only issue so far with the school.

I now have two children attending PS 22. There is such a difference in their abilities to learn one is well advanced and the other is in need of assistance. While the social environ ment is excellent academics needs improvement. There needs to be a separate class for the gifted and additional help for the remedial.

My kids and me were part of this great school for 4 yrs. They loved every minute of school and the teachers are best. My son was reading midway thru grade K ! What an amazing feat and now his way of killing time is to read. Kudos to Ms. Constantino n the wonderful staff n teachers. Go Tigers!

My children have been a part of ps 22 family for more than 10 years. The faculty has always been very nice and helpful. The school and grounds are always well kept by the maintenance dept. The security guards love the students. Mrs. Constantino and the rest of the staff always look professional while maintaining an orderly yet fun environment for the children. I will miss the school after my son graduates in June.
