I went to P.S. 35 1957-1962, for grades K-5. The academic programs were quite adequate as I have gone on to earn a B.S. in Biology and to a successful career. I remember this school fondly, especially Miss Kahn, Mrs. Sass, Miss Hoppenfeld, Miss Streich and Mrs. Kranzberg.

The academic programs of this school were adequate, as I am a graduate of P.S. 35 and I am currently in private boarding school in upstate NY as a result of the excellent background I recieved there. Although I was only there for my 4th grade year, Ms. Nixon and Ms. Koster were notable mentors for myself and the other children. I seem to remember the food being quite good, and parental involvement acceptable. The facilities weren't in bad repair, but it is very likely that they have improved since I haven't set foot in that school for over 5 years. Academic and athletic awards do exist - I was valedictorian of my graduating class and the jocks in my class recieved awards as well. This is a good school and I remember it with a certain warmth and fondness. If the school is still anything like it was when I went there, you're child will be in good hands.
