    "As a parent of 2 children currently enrolled in PS116 I have to agree with the newest reviews. School adminitrastion is cold, disinterested and at times rude. Social economic standards plays are huge part in how your child and your family are perceived. It sometimes feels like fundraising is the priority for this school. Teacher turnover rate is incredibly high and the ones that are still around are either stuck in their ways or fingers crossed one of the "good ones". The highlight is extracurricular activities that will cost you a pretty penny and are mostly taught by school staff. My children barely have time to eat lunch and gym or dance is given only once a week. Sadly, with each year that passes I become more disheartened with PS116."

    "The quality of the education seems to go down each year that my 2 children attended PS116. The administration is detached, cold and disinterested. I don't know who runs this school. It made middle school seem great. Look somewhere else if you have a choice."

    "My daughter is completing her Kindergarten year at PS116 and we have been trilled with the school. As a former teacher, I really appreciate all the ways our family is included in the school. We are in her classroom for something at least once a month, we regularly receive email from the class parents list, and communication with the teacher is effortless, via email, notes, or just before/after school. The PTA is very strong and the after school classes are something I brag about on a regular basis. I just feel so lucky to have such a wonderful school in our neighborhood."

    "My daughter is almost finished with her time at 116. The teachers have been very strong. They are the heart and soul of the school. My daughter has enjoyed her friends, felt challenged and experienced some very good relationships across the faculty. The administration is terrible though. I dislike the principal and feel that she is completely removed from the parents, save a few big fund raisers. The cut backs obviously hurt and we all chip in a great deal to provide for all the children, as parents. I like the middle school adviser. The on-site after-school is terrible as well. The woman who runs it is only focused on her profits. Most of the teachers and programs are pretty below par. The kids aren't enriched and the supervision is also lacking and leads to a lot of issues that play out in school. My daughter is on the track team and has loved that experience. The study population is mixed and is trending to less diverse as the economy continues to falter among working families."

    "The administration is cold, unreceptive and deceptive. The principal is not nurturing and is focused only on test scores. The quality of the school has deteriorated from an A to a C since the previous principal left. This school is over crowded. There were 7 Kindergarten classes the year my child enrolled. Due to overcrowding children have little time for lunch and almost no Physical Ed. The administration has not figured out a way to demand more from the board of ed to ameliorate the situation as they are kow towing to the system - for example children barely have 15 minutes for lunch and are then herded out of the cafeteria. This school left my children nervous with low self esteem. They did not know the 50 states or presidents or geography by the time they left. If the subject cant be filled in a bubble on ELA or Math test it is not taught. Very Very high teacher turnover."
