School Reviews

5   12/11/2012
Our son is now in the fifth grade having been a student at PS69Q since kindergarten. In general we have been very pleased with his growth and experiences at this school. We are especially appreciative of the musical extracurricular opportunities offered here. Our son is now in his second year of cello and is singing in the chorus and will also be learning the bass in the spring. These activities have really given him a chance to grow and express himself in ways that he otherwise would not have the chance. They have been very instrumental in allowing him be more confident and secure. We also appreciate the breadth of diversity in the student body. The faculty has been very responsive to helping him strengthen areas where he may have been weak and well as helping him build on his strengths.
