This is a wonderful school and we are sad to leave here. The principal, teachers and all the staffs are professional and very caring at the same time. They offer a variety of programs to help each student and my son gained so much from this school.

P.S. 39 is an excellent school. My daughter has been there since kindergarten and her teachers are great. Leaving kindergarten, my daughter had problems readin and they had so many programs and tools that helped her trmendously. She is now in second grade and has no prblems whatsoever. The principal is helpful and knos you by name. It's like an extended family.

I have two children attending PS 39 and so far I have been pleased with my children's progress. The only concern I have is, I would like to see more minority teachers at this school due to the mixture of students attending.

I love PS 39. The Teachers are wonderful, The parent coordinator Dina is one in a million and the Mr. Corso is great. The school is like a family. My son loved the school. And now he has to move on to another school for 6th grade. To all parents - just know this - they care about the kids and look out for them. You do not find that in many schools. My son's best memories were made in ps 39. Sue Puma Congleton

I am so greatful to P.S. 39 for gladly taking my son, 3 years ago, when we needed help the most. I pulled my son out of a private school because they just didn't care about my sons needs and basically gave us our walking papers so that we don't bring down their scores. P.S. 39 accepted him and helped him come a very long way. He is now in the 5th grade and doing very well. I wish P.S. 39 went up to the 8th grade because I would leave him there without thinking twice about it. Mr. Corso and the teachers at P.S. 39 are top notch and are my heros.

The teachers and staff of PS 39 have taken care of my children as if they were their own. The teachers will bend over backwards if you have a concern about yuor child, whether it be on school time or not, to insure each child is getting the best education. They do not get the credit they deserve. There are many events for parents and children to get to know each other. I am very sad that my children will be graduating from PS 39 this June. It will be like leaving home. Thank you to everyone at PS 39 for all that you have done through the years. Linda Siciliano
