    Great community nice staff and school who set clear goals and requirements to both students and parents to meet the CORE-standards. Focusing on academy achievements and encouragements makes PS101 a top rated successful school.

    PS101 is a great school and top rated for academy achievements that teachers and principals all work hard for. It provides very good programs and advanced technology teachings and learnings. It has a safe learning environment in a good neighborhood. My son loves this school - one of the primary reasons I chose to stay for his choice.

    I am a former student who attended P.S 101K from 1986-1991. This school gave me a strong educational foundation in the arts technology sciences and social skills that has been unparalleled throughout my educational career. I often draw upon the skills learned here in my early childhood even as an adult. I often wish I lived in the zoned area so that my children may attend. Also the schools in this area are the most ethnically diverse of New York City elementary schools. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.
