    "I'm very disgusted with this school. This school is a nightmare.The is an environment of chaos and disorganization. There isn't any personal touch here. My daughter is in kindergarten and will not be going there next year. The work seems to be juvenille and she's had three teachers in the past 5 months. Consistency is not a word they understand. Children need this to have a productive learning experience. The administrative staff (principal and vice principals) seem to be dismissive of parents concerns and issues. I can't wait for the schol year to be over and pray that my daughter hasn't been damaged by her learning experience here."

    "My chilldren started this school last year. Since then, I have seen some school improvement in math and reading. I would like to see more courses and/or classes for advanced students, so they will not get lost or have to be transferred out to more advanced educational schools. With Parents, teaches and students working together, we can bring this school up educationally where it should be. It takes unity, but we can do it!"

    "The principal and teachers are wonderful and do their best to maintain a safe and secure environment for the children both during school hours and at the afterschool programs. The children here are given an incentive to strive for the best grades monthly."

    "PS197 is an excellent school. The principal, office staff and teachers are wonderful, caring and attentive individuals. Even the school nurse acts more like a parent who cares, than a nurse just doing her job. My son is by no means easy, he is brilliant, but without the effort of the entire school, I would be really crazy. My friend introduced me to the school because her children (3) were students there and all graduated and went to other schools and excelled. My son will do the same by God's grace and the continued help of all the workers at PS197."
