    My school is the best indeed around the neigboorhood We have caring and dedicated teacher such as Ms. Ross from 3rd grade and Ms. Hernandez and much more I have been a mom with the school from generation to generation my oldest is 14 and now I have my 8 year old. Our Teachers have been working very hard with the "New Common Core" what a stressfull topic to them and our kids !! But I'm not worry about that because we have the BEST Teachers !!!

    The teachers are very caring and they go the extra mile to help their students. My daughters have become excellent readers and their math skills excelled this year. The after school programs really made a difference and improved there math scores. Thank you

    At C.S.150 balanced literacy is used as the core reading program. Teachers seem invested and intent on teaching children to succeed in reading.

    My son just started attending C.S.150 I think this is a wonderful school. His teacher is wonderful. I have no bad comments about this school. Even though he's only in kindergarten because of his teacher I know he will do very well. Keep up the good work. S.Manigault
