    I could say that this school is the best. I am now a 7th grader which means ii graduated last year and I could say it was very depressing to leave my wonderful teachers. They would always be there for you even if you're wrong. I had a wonderful time taking part of the senior activities and it was amazing. I wish kids would come to this school and enjoy it as much as i did.

    P.S.160Q is a fantastic school which other schools can take example. Not only do the school's staff and administration a well oiled machine the warmth and inviting displayed by the school's staff is encouraging for parents to be more active in our children's academics. There are open communication that engulfs all areas of the school that is welcomed and contiagious. I am very happy that my child attends this school so much that I have gotten involved and became Vice president of the PTA Parent Volunteer and almost every part that they can use a parent.
