    Hi everyone I am a graduate of P.S./M.S. 15 and all I have to say is that the school is great. These teachers prepare your children for the best. I can honestly say that I learned a lot. With the amount of homework given each night and their methods for preparing us for high school is what is helping me today in my new high school. With the help and support of all of my teachers I have been able to get into a great program called A Better Chance where I am now attending Eden Prairie High School in Minnesota. This high school is the best high school in the state and I made it. Without the help of these teachers I wouldn't. So trust me when is say your children will learn alot and and have many more opportunities with the help and support of these teachers.

    My daughter attended this school since it opened. It was opened before it was completed and there were no sidewalks and work was completed while the students attended. If it were not for the former Principal Mr. Anthony Warner and his staff which included the current principal Mrs. Griffin the students would not have made it. The reason there are not enough teachers is because many of them left to persue a job that would help them pay all the parking tickets they recieved courtesy of the District Manager at the time of Community Board 7 who put up no parking signs so the city could get more revenue out of a poorly paid staff. The staff put in extra hours at their expense to help educate the students and the family atmosphere was always inviting. I am the former PTA Co-President for two years and the school is great.
