    "From a student that attended P.S. 159 until 1959, it was a great school then but my opinion of the way it is now would not be accurate."

    "I had several kids who went to this school. There are some truly excellent teachers ... but also an exceptionally bad teacher. The leadership at the school is stoic and dismissive. They had an after school "enrichment" program which was a thinly veiled disguise for unstructured daycare. I didn't really feel welcome nor unwelcome at the school. Overall, your child's homeroom teacher is THE most important factor. if this teacher is good then you will be happy to be there. But if not ..."

    "This is a wonderful school. My son is in third grade and he loves it and thrives in the school. They have guitar, computerc as well as all the regular classes. They also offer enrichment during school and after school. Parents are very welcome in the school."

    "We just came from another country and this school is the one nearest my house. As a new student who came from another country, my son is doing his best to adjust but it seems that his teacher doesn't give him consideration. As a parent, I am worried because in my country, my son has been performing well in school and he has always been an honor student. But the teacher he has now in this school keeps on giving negative feedbacks about my son. Why can't she give my son enough time to adjust ? The other staff who have dealt with my son give positive comments about him except her. I am thinking of pulling him out of this school..On the other hand, I am commending Mrs. Zucker for being very accomodating as well as Mrs. Brevis."

    "My son is just finished the K and going to first grade this September. When I first put him at this school I was worried so much and scared for him he might not get use for the new school. But as time went by. I put 100% of trust to this school. It is so safe and people are so nice. And most important my son is studying very well and got a very good report from school and also state test"
