AMAZING!!! The opportunities that they gave my son allowed him to grow, not just educationally, but as an adult person. The staff is very warm and friendly and they REALLY care about all of their students. My son has graduated from this fine school and still, returns to say hello to the teachers and staff that made SUCH an impression on him. if you are looking for the BESt for your "extra special" student, then look no further than this school.
Amazing school...with 5 stars for the teachers and therapists....As a parent considering different options their bulletin board is in the lobby displaying all the data the Department of Education website does not have. My neighbors son went there in a wheelchair and diapers at the age of 11...less than one year he is walking and toilet trained...It is Hungerford for me and my child!!!!
I love working with the staff who happens to be the most caring bunch of people I have ever met. I love the kids as well, I am honored to be a teacher here! Dr. McInerney and Mrs Leykam thank you for everything you do!! Go S2!
They are great with kids and every student learns and kids with special needs reach for the stars
Teachers and staff that are highly committed to helping special need children
i think it is a great school with amazing teacher who are caring and educated !!!
They have very special and loving teachers and aides! Two thumbs up for a job well done!
P.S. 721 is a caring, creative, courageous place...a place where kids struggle against tremendous odds and dedicated, well-trained administrators,teachers, paras, staff,and therapists are with them every step of the way. They coach, prod, help, love, and of course teach these special children every minute of every day. I have two precious daughters who attend this wonderful school, and I have seen them grow by leaps and bounds into a fuller, happier life. The Hungerford school is an A+ operation from top to bottom! My husband and I thank them from the bottom ofour hearts!
It's a great middle school to high school for special needs children. It teaches them the vocational skills needed for later on in life.
It is a wonderful school for special needs children and the staff is very supportive, they really want our children to succeed
It is a great school,caring staff and PTA updates, my son second family , he has come a long way,He makes his bed, so PROUD, now if they could teach my other kids I will be a happy MOM
The caring professional attitide and approach to learning and understanding the children they work with .
The work this school does with there wonderful children is amazing. If any school deserves to win it is this one. They could use the money to help fund the work programs, the beautiful gardens the children plant and so much more. This is a truly wonderful school.
one word 'dedication', the one thing that makes this school special & the one thing that every parent wants for their child
Special Ed. teacher, Donna Moschella, makes a difference every day in her students' lives by being an outstanding teacher and mentor.
This school is the best special education school in New York. They have the most caring staff.
P.S. 721 is a school that really addressed and meets the nedds of all students. Staff if not only professdiona, but caring and extemely attentive to the needs to each and every student. It is a great learning and nurturing environment.
I love the Hungerford School because it is a very inspiring place to work. Our students are amazing and I am grateful each day to have the opportunity to work with them.
