    "I went to P.S 17 from K-3rd grade! I loved the time I spent there. It was a great learning experience. I wish to have come back but I'm already in High School. My favorite teacher ever was Mrs. Sanchez! I miss her so much! My music and art teacher were great there too! If I could contact them again, I'd love it with every bit of my heart!"

    "There is no real pre-k criteria, students are generally being observed not taught. My child everyday informs me that she naps, sings and plays with blocks and on the contrary I believe students should be taught how to identify & write their letters, numbers; learn the pronounciation of these letters etc...these are pre-kindergarten activities. In daycare my child was taught her colors and how to write. I feel as if she is still in daycare minus the learning."

    "The teachers at this school are very nice and are always willing to help out. The principal however is a completely diffrent story. She does not listen to you and talks over you. She wants everything done her way. I'm very glad that I now deal with the vice principle. It can't always be done my way but at least she listens to what you have to say."
