PS 217 Col David Marcus School Reviews

By a Parent on

PS. 217 is a wonderful school!  Though large, it is warm and welcoming, great staff,  dedicated and involved parent association, fantastic library (and librarian), totally safe.  Both my sons (white) went there, were well prepared for their next challanges, and made friends in the first grade that are "keepers" to this day (my oldest is a HS senior, and youngest is a freshman.  The building is renovated, bright, cheerful, most classrooms are air conditioned.  Come to the open house and meet the staff and walk the halls and observe a class - PS 217 is the best.
