    "Excellent faculty, PTA community, and principal! Our pre-k director recommended PS261 to us over our G&T and success charter school choices. We could not be happier here. We had an excellent Kindergarten teacher who taught my daughter to love reading and math. Since Kindergarten my daughter has also been learning Arabic and comes home with friends singing songs in Arabic. She is now in the first grade and loves it! The school is such a diverse beautiful place! Thanks to Principal Mills, the faculty and PTA at PS 261 for all their hard work in creating such a friendly and engaging learning environment for our children."

    "P.S. 261 is a very parent friendly school. My son has been in other public schools that forces you to drop the children off at the front door and leave, but with P.S.261 they allow you to sit and have breakfast with your child until 10 mins before the first bell. The students are nice, the staff is nice. I am si excited to be part of P.S.261's community. My son is in the second grade and he loves it. The class he's in, he is pushed to do his best. The community is amazing as well. The parent board is great. The principal walked me and my son to his class the first day he started and she is very hands on. The parent coordinator knows me by name. I love it! If you are thinking about putting your child here, STOP THINKING AND DO IT!!! You'll be happy you did. :)"

    "Both of my daughters attended 261 and enjoyed it tremendously. One of them transferred from a Brooklyn private school and the other from a Caribbean country. Needless to say it could have not gone well at all! The teachers were nurturing and open to discussion and always responded to emails and requests for a visit. The curriculum was well paced and organized and learning occurred in a healthy environment. Both have since gone on to middle schools and are doing well. I am hoping to get my K and 1st grader daughters in this fall. I am saddened to hear that families outside of the district are now unable to get in. I'm still going to try! Anyone know is Ms. Zip MIlls is still the principal?"

    "Great administration, good parent involvement, excellent teachers and a diverse student body all add up to a wonderful learning environment for our children, who we feel are getting a terrific education. We never would have imagined we could offer them so much at a public school and we will be sorry to leave the school behind when our kids graduate."
