    "We are satisfied with the education that our son is receiving at Paideia School 15. My son is doing well and likes going to school. ALL of his teachers have been extremely competent, hard-working, and personable. The "class parents" keep us informed of important things that are going on and help us participate to the extent we can (both my husband and I work full-time.) Although the principal is more articulate and organized than the previous principal, we have not found him to be particularly helpful when we have interacted with him. In fact, we find him quite defensive if you question him (wonder what he's like if you actually disagree with him?) He clearly is used to dealing with children and teachers who do not question him. We avoid interacting with him unless absolutely necessary. The Assistant Principal, on the other hand, was very helpful. Unfortunately, she transferred to another school. Participating in the PTA is difficult. I volunteered to help numerous times with PTA projects and was never contacted. Other parents mentioned the same experience. I've just directed this energy to helping out my son's class parents instead."

    "My son is in the 8th grade this year. He has been in PS 15 since Pre-K. What I see in this school is, under the new principal's leadership, this school has improved a great deal; either on administration or academically. The 7th grade Science teacher for the year 2012-2013 is strict but inspiring. He deserves a 5 star rating. The 6th grade social study teacher for the year 2011-2012 is also an excellent teacher. My son likes to watch History channel is because of him. There is still a lot of room for improvement in Math, what about more take home assignments and a review test every week. This is my son's last year in PS 15, I am sure when he enter high school, he will remember all the nice things this school has offered him."

    "This is an amazing school with a strong PTA. They are extremely important to our school and parents need to support it. This is a well run school with a wonderful administration. Children understand that rules need to be obeyed, work needs to get done, and fun can be had by all. Parents really help shape a school. This is a perfect example."

    "My daughter has been in this school for 3 years. The teaching staff is wonderful. They have done a wonderul job given the budget cuts they face each year. There is a wonderful contingent of parents in this school. The parents are extremely involved and and have been a large part of my family's positive experience. The principal has just completed his second year at the school. He has been making strides in increasing test scores and also working with a reduced budget."

    "My 7 year old has attended Paideia School 15 for 3 years now. I think the teachers that she has had for the past 3 years have all been amazing. The parents work together so well and support the school 100%, the PTA is very hard working and the Principal is doing everything he can to elevate test scores. The teachers and aides are wonderful! I could not be any happier with my decision to send my children to Paideia School 15!"
