    "PS130 is an excellent school. My child transferred to PS130 from a very well regarded public school and we have been very impressed by how advanced the work my child is doing. The staff/teachers care tremendously about the students and really try to do what is best for them. Great sense of community as well. As for the PA, their aggressiveness in fundraising is actually a positive for the school. Given reduced DOE funding, donation is an important to maintain the school's programs for the kids (e.g. Arts, Dance etc.) for our kids to have a balanced education. Also, I don't think they are particularly aggressive relative to the PAs other top ranked public schools in NYC. They just have to work harder to get donations given the relative demographics at PS 130. PAs at a lot of schools suggest donation for each child of >$1,000. PS130 doesn't do that. They are very clear that all donations are great, no matter how big or how small. Ultimately, they are raising money for the benefit of our children. I would much rather have a PA that cares and is aggressive in raising money for the school, than the school not having the money to run programs for our kids."

    "We just registered our kid. My friends told me the principle, assistant principle and the teachers at PS130 are excellent. But they also warned about some people in the school PTA love to gossiping. I saw some PTA member stand out side of the school forced parents to buy raffle tickets and make donations. The lady even pressing new parents to buy raffle tickets inside the registration room. Just too aggressive and demanding. As a new parent to the school this just make me felt very uncomfortable."

    "My kids is current in the g&t kindergarden class. I like this school so much, my kid improved a lot during her first year study. Ms. Paternoster is a very fresh and passionate teacher in her class."

    "I agree the other parent, this is a great school but I think the PA really has a problem, I wonder if I can report them to the DOE."
