    "This is an outstanding school in Queens. My son attended the first half of the year in Kindergarten here. School was very organized. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Teachers are ok. Some better than others from what I heard and seen. But the school itself is really good. We had to move in the middle of the school year. We moved to Manhattan and my son currently attends one of the most prestigious (as they call it here) in Manhattan but let me tell you: here in the city they are way behind PS.162! My son was starting to read in kindergarten (when at PS 162). When we moved here, the children in Kindergarten did nothing but play and eat sugary treats all day! Also, the schools in manhattan are very disorganized. I miss how PS.162 was so organized. The Principal and her Assistant were always in the school yard in the morning. The parent coordinator Debbie was the best. Always friendly, approachable, and ready to help. I have nothing but good memories here. If your child is here, congratulations! This is a wonderful school! If you're considering enrolling your child, I wouldn't hesitate for a minute!"

    "My son transfered to 4th grade and he is now in 5th grade at P.S.162 John Golden school. I have very good experiences with the school teachers and staffs. My son felt like he can do anything with his current teachers. His 4th grade teacher was very accommodating and 5th grade teacher is very good at motivating students, at least it is the case for our son. Our son excelled beyond our expectations. I have seen many parent coordinators in the past but nobody is as dedicated as Ms. Debora Strassburg at ps162. She is very knowledgeable and approachable. I always feel comfortable asking her questions or clarifications. If It wasn't for too many fundraising events, I would have given the school a 5 rating."

    "This is a HORRIBLE school. They do not care about the kids. They only care about public appearance. And all they do is fundraise for the PTA, however I have yet to see any of the funds benefit my kids. Most of the staff, including the teachers need to retire or find a new career. The parent coordinator is not there for the parents or students. And, this is a big BULLY school. The principal is the worst offender. You would think that if a parent calls to discuss this issue she would have the decency to return the calls. They do not address this because they themselves are Bullies. Can't comment about the current PTA, but in previous years, they are the worst offenders in breaking the rules. They would be the ones ready to run you over with their huge SVUs because they were late in dropping or picking up their kids and they will never stop at the STOP signs. The only time any issues are addressed at this school is when someone gets seriously hurt. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone."

    "This school is horrible, my child had such a bad experience here and she still talks about how much she hated going to ps162. The school does not care about the child at all, all they care is about test scores. If your child doesn't meet the standards, instead of giving them the extra care that they need they just hold them back. The principle and the teachers act nice and caring in front of you but all they care is how they are going to get better scores and if they think the child can not perform they just take the chance away from you, is that fair? Your child doesn't even get a chance to take the test, so how do you know if your child is going to pass or fail?, they just decide you are not good enough and take that chance away from you and call you a failure even before you have failed. My child is in private school now and she loves it, she loves going to school, the staff is very friendly, her teacher is wonderful and absolutely no bullying. According to her new teacher she is up to date and doing fine has no problems academically. I DO NOT RECOMMEND PS162 TO ANYONE IS A HORRIBLE SCHOOL"
