    "Both my kids go to this school. One of my children are in the G and T program . So far with all the teachers both my kids have had , I have nothing but amazing things to say about each and every one of them. The school itself is truly outstanding !!! The entire staff is very friendly and very professional. They really go out of their way for their students, and most importantly the teachers make sure that learning is fun for all children. The fact that my children are excited to go to school every morning is just priceless to me as a mom !! Which parent wouldn't want that ? Thank you PS 209 for giving my children an outstanding education and an exciting , safe and very fun school experience."

    "I have only positive things to say about this school and Dr McDonnell. Both my children go to 209...one in the G and T program and one not. Both receive a great education and Dr McDonnell does a great job addressing any issues should they come up. She knows all the kids by name and during all my interactions with her she clearly demonstrated that the kids were her priority."

    "I also pulled my child out from the school. Principal played politics and would not do anything to improve the situation. The school only emphasized teaching for standardized tests. Not much value in teaching."

    "I am an alumni from 209 and now am a college student. All I can say is that it was the best school I ever went to compared to my junior high school and high school. The staff for the most part seemed very dedicated and interested in helping us learn. I am seeing a lot of negative comments about the principal, I believe ms McDonald. When I attended she was vice principal and then became principal during my last two years. I generally liked her although I can't say that she knew everyone by name. She was happy all the time and was obsessed with smiley faces. To this day I think about visiting my old teachers at 209, except one which i advise you of, the science teacher, ms. keegan. She did not teach my class much from the 3rd to the 6th grade. She would make us copy pages of notes from the board and make us watch eyewitness videos. Then she would test us without really explaining jt and everyone would fail. Otherwise, the school is highly recommended!!"
