    I wish Ms. Battino was still the principal. She was the best principal that P.S. 128 has ever had. Arredondo is the worst principal ever. She has to go!

    Teachers at P.S. 128 work very hard. Children's projects are constantly collected to see how hard they are being pushed by the teachers . Most of the teachers go beyond the call of duty. Children enjoy learning at the school. As a teacher I enjoy coming to work everyday and helping my students!

    My daughter attended this school for six years K-5. She loved everything it had to offer. The teachers are very caring and taught her well. As we look back into her experiences at P.S.128 there is nothing she would have changed. This school prepared my daughter for middle school. I would advice parents to be involved P.S.128 has a lot to offer. Invest your time and effort because it is all worth it. A special thanks to Mr. Diaz her 3rd grade teacher and an amazing educator.

    My son is currently in the fifth grade. His teacher has his class doing all sorts of projects. The projects even include power point presentation. My son is challeneged academically everyday and his teacher Mr. Rodriguez deserves a pat on his back for getting these children on their feet and ready to learn new exciting things each day.

    This is a great school. The facilities are very convenient clean and comfortable. The environment is apropriate for the children; they have lots of activities and they enjoy studying. Most of the students use their uniforms. Parents keep updated about their children's work and the school is always trying to work with parents in improving kids' results. My son and I came from Colombia one year ago and he has improved his English and obtained excellent grades during this year. The parents resource center makes interesting meetings and helps and informs parents about topics such as education health school activities etc.

    Ms.Battino (prinicipal) is wonderful. It is obvious that she cares for her students. One of the things about her that I first noticed is that at dismissal time she is out with the children offering kisses and conversation to the children and parents. I believe that a school is highly judged on the principal and I believe she is doing a great job. Keep up the good work Ms Battino your efforts are not gone unnoticed!
