    I am one of the students in Ms.131. I love this school so much i don't even want to leave. Some of the things that I like about this school is the help and attention the teacher gives to a student. When you don't understand something they will help you right away and they will make sure you understand the concepts. Plus this school is very very safe.

    My son had always been a delinquent. I am a single parent and I never had much time to teach him to respect. I admit I am an awful mother but after my son got into this school he totally changed. He was making so much progress due to the help of the caring and concerned teachers in this school. I was honestly surprised at how much it'll totally change my son. He now is a mature young adult who is excellent in academics who knows how to respect. I really love this school and love how it affected my son. GO MS 131!!!

    Marvelous school with excellent students and teachers. Ms. Tam is an excellent principal and Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Abadia are amazing counselors. My daughter graduated from this school and now I'm sending my son to this school. I love MS 131

    The teachers here are very helpful to my son. My son had never been good in the subject math. After the teacher notices he notified me and asked me if my son can stay after school every wednesday and he'll help him in math. I had never seen such a caring teacher like him before. My son made a lot of progress as the teacher was willing to stay after school despite his busy schedule he was delighted to help for no charge. MS 131 sure is a great school.
