    My childrens school is great. You have teachers that get to know you and your child very well. I love the fact that the school offers a variety of programs and courses that help pretty much all children. If I had to change something in the school it would be the organizing they have no organization skills when it comes to many cases one of them including the first day of school entrance situation. The school has dance art drama class character education many after school programs. Many different parent meeting on alot of what is going on in school how to help your child succeed not only in school but at home to. It is a really great school its only some little things that need help with other than that I have no major complaints about the school.

    My daughter has been attending this school for 2 years and I am very happy with the curriculum. She is in 1st grade and on a 2nd grade reading level. I have had nothing but great experiences while having to interact with the teachers and staff.

    PS 119 is a good school. Parents are involved and there is an after-school program next door in the Junior HS.
