    P.S.76 has done a great job with my five year old. He has learned a second language and is advancing every day.

    I am currently looking for another school to put my daughter in. From Pre-k to 1st grade it was fine however I am noticing that as the grades go up the quality of school work goes down. It is not challenging for my child anymore she is getting less work some of the classes are over crowded and they need updated equipment and books. As far as extra curricular activities I guess that is something that I have missed. I'm still looking for it.... all I can say is do the research yourself at this point you are your child's spokesperson and if you don't speak for them now how will they know how to do it for themselves later.

    This is an excellent school. I'd definitely recommend it to any parent living in the Harlem area. Great principal about his kids and business. Staff is well organized. They are on the rise for the best. Offering nothing but the best for their students. I give them 5 stars. and I rate them 10 out of 10. Go P.S. 76! Rising to the stars!
