    "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"

    "It's an average school for district 26. It all depends on what teacher your child will get. Some of them are amazing, and some are lazy and should be fired."

    "The teachers there are great. School environment is excellent. The new Principal is very warm and friendly who tries her best to make the school become a very safe place for students to learn and grow. But the admin. workers there are very unprofessional and also very unfriendly. They never said " Thank you", "Please", "Sorry", and I guess they've never attended the kindergarten. I heard they yell at the students and treated parents in a very rude manners. The worst part is that they acted like they are the big boss who control the school. Don't forget that without all the parents supports, the school can not function well. Remember, you are only the worker there, not the President of the school."
