PS 117 J Keld-Briarwood School Reviews
P.S.117 has a lot of activties and also good educated teachers.
I think that P.S.117 is a very good school because it provides great education and fun activities for students to learn and have fun at the same time. I have been in P.S.117 ever since I was in kindergarten and I've had a wonderful experience.
I have two children at this school. Since we came here the rating dropped from 6 to 5. This really makes me sad. Both of my children had the privilege to spend the past few years with wonderful teachers. Not all of the teachers fall in this category, though. One of the assistant principals has a wonderful personality. As my daughter says just her smile makes your day. The school has an afterschool program which I consider is very good. Some of the main office personel and the "lunchladies" are rude and unprofessional. The school nurses do not get "A" professionally, either. They had a wonderful parent teacher coordinator who is not at the school anymore. I do not know much about the new one. Outdoor recess is very rare, which would be necessary for the students to refress their minds. There are also some organization problems . Given the budget cuts and everything there are a lot of wastes at the school.
I went to P.S 117 9 years ago and I still talk about it at least once a week and miss everything about it, I made amazing memories there and 9 years later I still have the same bestfriend since second grade. You build amazing bonds with students and faculty.
my children just transferred from catholo=ic school to ps 117 and i am so happy. I received so much support from the teachers and the adminstrative staff. I wished if my children started there from kindergarden.
I am goinig to P.S.117 for 6 years now and it seems to be a great school. The teachers and staff are all very nice. I love this school and I hope my sister goes there someday,too.
P.S.117 is really great. I went there for 7 years. I think the staff,teachers, and coordinators are really kind. P.S.117 wa my second home basically! xD
