    "My school is a wonderful place for your child. You will not find a more committed team to share with you in the education of your child."

    "I, and my family attended ps.129 over 50 years ago. When I think about my childhood, and the memories I often think about how this school has changed from what I remember, I was one of six Gilmartin children that attended ps.129 from 1961-1968. I wish I had School pictures to share with our grandchildren, over the years our school pictures got lost along the way, I don't know how to rate 129 now, but 50 years ago it was one of the best. At that time the school was from k-6th grade."

    "The kids have nothing to do with the quality of the school. I was leary about sending my son and daughter here because of the test results. My sons pre-k class learned so much from the teacher Ms. Kelly this year. I really have no complaints. The mornings are a bit chaotic because you have small kids and the older kids all coming in, in the morning. I wish the test results would improve for this school. I dont plan of having them stay here past 1st grade though as I will be moving out of the neighborhood soon."

    "I hate this school. Worst school you can ever be in. As a graduated student, I have to say this was the worst out of all the schools I've been in the past. Teachers never have control of the students. They literally pick the "good kids" and don't pay any mind to the others. I was scared of going inside, everyday. I hardly learned anything and they gave homework like we knew what we learned. The children act out-of-control and no one cares. Period."

    "The neighborhood dreads the afternoon release of these students from school. They are out-of-control, belligerent, and destructive. They have no respect for adult authority, none whatsoever. I have witnessed a group smear an entire Entenmann's boxed cake over buildings, nearby cars, and the sidewalk. No one stopped them, because although they are children, and past attempts to intervene have not been successful. If reprimanded, the children WILL challenge the source, and with all kinds of bad language and threats. I also witnessed several cases of street harassment, including one visited on a female pedestrian by a group of three girls - who had been locked out of the store. The corner store locks their door when they come by. The girls ridiculed her clothing and made fun of her, even more shocking when one considers that the woman was clearly an adult and a professional, judging by her dress. The comment below on out-of-control students is accurate. Who supervises this ? Is it really the job of teachers to be the primary disciplinary element ? These children will be released from school eventually, and who will monitor them then ?"
