    "This school is AWFUL!! I'm very sad and worried about my son's education. After talking to the principal and and my son's teacher about all my concerns, I was told that it is the not their fault but the NY governors.. SMH!! They just do not care. Homework is checked ones per week because according to the teacher she does not have enough time to do it every day.The school staff at the general office is very rude and unprofeccional as well. Thinking it was me being crazy, I asked some of the parents about their thoughts about this school and I was not surprise to find out most of them were very unhappy but did not know what to do. lastly, I would said that the principal need to take pride of what she does and work hard to improve PS 117. Being a school principal, I believe is a very hard job that requires someone with strong leadership skills, and a passion towards education. Because she does not have this skills, she should just let someone else take her position. This review is not about being hateful but to do something against the LACK of leadership, organization, professionalism and careless attitude towards education this school displays."

    "The teachers are wonderful! The special education department is really great too! The OT and language therapists are great. One thing parents should know is that there is no afterschool programs, and the PTA really doesn't have it together due to the past PTA not having it together. There should be more parent involvment. The lack of afterschool programs is a real upset."

    "PS117 used to be a good school but not anymore. It seems so disorganized, for ex: shool invited parents for open house to go in their child's class room & spend time. Parents were waiting outside & staff at front desk did not know what to do."
