    PS 155 is a wonderful place for learning and growing. The students work hard and learn more than just academics. They build character and attain life long skills. I enjoy working with students. They use technology to further learning and provide a enriching curriculum. There are lots of opportunities to participate in PS 155 and to contribute to the community.

    This is a good school but now as the school year is beginning I have heard that there is no parenting volenntering at this school and no learning leaders at this school also... And this is what I don't understand people who want to help the school and help our kids are being turned away at this school....the parent cordenator Ms. Knee smith is not helpful at all she is very rude to parents and she is the one that is suppose to want help from he parents....last year there were parents who wanted to give Christmas goody bags to the entire school and she was against this....what is her problem... And made comments as "never again" these are innocent children who some might not have anything at home to open on Christmas morning... And these little this count....something needs to be done about her....but the principle is a good person...he wants what the parent wants... There is no parent involvement in this school anymore... This is wrong

    P.S. 155Q is a good school. I don't agree with the way some teachers work in this school. My son didn't get the help he needed from his teacher. He was always turned away by this fifth grade teacher and ended failing his state math test. She had 18 students in her class and this was an I.E.P. class. I hope she gets fired because she is not sutiable to be a teacher.
