Worst school. Teachers don't give home. Kids are own their own. If you need help school nobody help. Three of my kids went there but unfortunately they couldn''t make it for good high school. Teachers need to improve their teaching skills.
It's a great school,the teachers teach well.However,this school needs more extracurricular activities for the middle school students.
Attending P.S/I.S 99 was one of the best experiences in my life. I will definetly be sending my future students to this school. The staff was quite loving, Students are diversed, Education is taught phenomanally! However?this school lacks extracurricular activities!
great school,great teachers and leadership!
I really recommend this school!! It's a really great school and teaches extremely well. They usually have parent-teacher conference twice a year and the teachers are extremely helpful and nice!!
