My experience at this school was wonderful the teachers are kind and are great examples for your kids .I just graduated from the school, I'm the class of 2018. Overall the experience was wonderful made so many long lasting memories and I learned a lot here emotionally and mentally. I am so sad to be leaving.. It's a great school definitely recommend it for your kids.:)

My kids are so happy in this school, my oldest is now moving up to the middle school. I really wanted to thank all the teachers (they are so awesome in different ways). PA: Ms. Maggie, Assist Principal: Ms. Perez, Principal: Ms. Thomas, lunch ladies, teach aids, security, janitor. My kids love them. They are so accommodating and welcoming. They treated my kids like their own. I am a single mom who has to work almost 24/7, however, I am very active in partnering up w. the teachers. They were very opened and willing to go for the extra miles. The teachers discipline the kids, however they also explained why they have to do that. Hoping for more programs for children activities, more trips, events (swimming , dance, drama, arts, science, spelling bee, math, computer & tech lessons & competitions). It is important to be excellent academically, however this school is excellent to guide my kids to be better as a person, more confidence and socially active.

My son transferred to this school in the middle of the K school year 2017. We had previously gone to a Catholic School, but my son was not happy there and I found that his time there was too rigid and did not allow for creativity, science and P.E. I saw an immediate change once he began attending PS 206Q and he looked forward to going to class and things that were being planned in the classroom. The communication is great, the Teachers are committed to the kids education and balance it with some fun things as well. As a parent I try to volunteer when I can and check with the teacher to see how my child is doing and what I can do at home to support his learning. We are into our second school year and I think it's a great school. I would recommend any parent to this school and always trust your instinct when it comes to your child's well being. Just because it's private school or highly rated does not necessarily mean it's right for your child. Take a tour and talk to the Principal and Parent Coordinator to find out what your school has to offer.

We just moved here this year. THis is not the best school, not the worst school and still need more improvement (esthetically and more enrichment programs?). I think the school has more than 30 nationalities and language speakers. My kids are lucky enough to have only 21-23 kids in their classes. The teachers are open and always available for communication. I can tell they are pretty good in keeping track about my kids. I always get the update once in a while (after school or I can call them according to their open schedules for questions). for my son in kindergarten, the teacher tries to emphasize more onto character building and socialization while she keeps track on the academic improvement. My 2nd grader is more responsible, discipline and organize. The school do a lots of events for fundraising and in the mean time fun education/experience for young kids. My kids are excited for the upcoming science fair projects, workshops n trips. They watched movies, music, dance, etc. At least in this school, they hv lots fun while they are learning. My kids also like the park next to the school, they sometimes play there with their classes or after school.
