PS 72 Dr William Dorney School Reviews

A Good School

By , a Former Student on

PS 72 is a great school. Students have the opportunity to go to band in the 5th grade! Most children don't even have the chance to experience the beauty of music through the use instruments! The teachers are very loving and they care for us and make the children come up at lunch time so they can understand the lesson.

By , a Parent on

I Love this School Especially Since Mrs.Colon has taken over. But I do feel that some of the teacher can give our children a little more to do. I don't mean overwork them just give more to do at home so we can learn from our children any help in what ever subject they are lacking
