This school is the school ever to put your kids specially P114 the assistance principal on this school is very nasty and disrespectful, she's also resist and some staff that working on site as a parent. I witness something this morning what the AP and other did to a bus driver and school attendant that's very unprofessional and unacceptable.

This school deserves to be looked at. Parents do your research and check it out. Best in the district for educating the whole child. Caring, safe , environment. Small classes, choices for clubs, opportunity for sports, character education, and students to go to choice high schools after graduation- mine went to Leon Goldstein, and some others are going to Laguardia and Tech. If you rule it out based on rumors or non researched based websites, your child loses .
