One Hundred Fifty-Sixth Street Elementary School Reviews
This school now hasa 6th grade which is wonderful.
I don't even know where to begin to express my gratitude and happiness for 156th St School. My daughter has attended 156th for 7 years now and sending her to this school is one of the BEST choices I have ever made in my life. If we as parents want and expect the best public education we can offer our children then it is up to us to do our school reserch and support our schools. Many other schools need to learn and follow from 156th St school. The teachers, staff and of course the childrem at 156th are all outstanding individuals. "Falcons Rock"
