    "This is our second year at this school. I am very impressed by the hard work of the administration and the teachers. The administration is very informed on all of the kids. They try to promote a respectful environment and stress anti-bullying. We get emails at least once a week from the principal (aside from the constant emails we get from the teachers, and the PTA) which keep us informed as to what is happening at the school. The parents at the school are very involved and any parent who wants to help out for school functions is welcomed! I'm not on the PTA, but I've always been welcomed to volunteer for the school activities. Also, in response to an older posting, the DOE for NYC starting with the 2012-2013 school year reformed the special education rules so the services must be offered at the zone school. Meaning that PS 169Q offers special education services (except it is not a barrier-free school i.e. no elevators.) I have one child with special needs and I must say that the administration and teachers have been very helpful with providing for the needs of my child. I wish other NYC schools were as awesome as PS 169Q. It's such a small community, it's like a family."

    "I am writing in response to the statement regarding allowing more flexibility on the part of the PTA. The reason you see the same parents at events is because we are the people who are willing to spend hours upon hours helping out. If you would like to participate, please by all means!!! We welcome you, please come to the meetings, events and introduce yourself. We welcome all who want to participate and play a role in the school. Have a great Summer and we look forward to seeing you in September!"

    "My children has been attending this school for the past five years and I can only say good things about the school. Yes, some of the young teachers are not as good as some other experienced ones but overall everyone works hard to prepare the children for higher grades. School library is great, they participate in the ballroom dance and encourage everyone to participate, the computer teacher Mr. Gursky is loved by all the students and running a great EPI, Robotics club. There has been a lot of improvements since Ms. Rosa took over so I am surprised read that negative comment. It must be personal. The only complaint which comes directly from my children is the quality of lunch, especially on Fridays where there is pizza and they claim that the lunch aids are often rude to the children. The school is safe, clean and has a lot of opportunities for everyone so I would recommend anyone who would want to move to the area."

    "I am so upset with majority of these reviews! My children attended this school for two years prior to relocation out of state this past summer. This is an amazing school with great leadership. I bet you all the "unhappy" parents are NEVER involve in anything the school does!!! They don't attend the PTA meeting or participate in any of the school activities. I was a very involve parent and know for a fact there NO way any involve parent would post some of theses RIDICULOUS comments. I am a single mother who works full time and still made my children s education a priority and that does not mean leaving everything to the administration. We are now located in a very affluent Connecticut neighborhood where they are just now getting Smart Boards in their school...PS. 169 has had it for years. I miss this school even more now that I have something to compare it to. This school is that of a Private school! Get involve! Get to know your Administration! Get to know your child's teacher! and you will quickly see ALL the HARD work that goes into making a school work!."
