Ps201Q is a very remarkable school. My daughter has just completed 3rd grade and is going to 4th grade and is doing so great because of the teachers, most of all i found the Principal, and Assistant Principals know each child by their names. I am happy that i made that choice.

P.S. 201 is an excellent school with a curriculm and staff that defines Excellence.  The Chinese that is being taught to the children is a wonderful idea.  The way the staff educates the children shows how hands on they are with the children and how they want nothing but the best for them.

Kudos to Mr. Gallini and his staff of educators.
