PS 184 Shuang Wen School Reviews

It's a great school

By a Current Student on

Shuang Wen school is awesome. Most people here don't know what being bullied feels like since there is none. It may be not as big as other schools but it's big enough for us. We've known our classmates for so long, and usually have amazing grades. It isn't too hard as long as you study, but there's a good amount of time that we can have fun, but they always make sure we understand everything before we get a reward.

PS 184 is a great school with great teachers. The children are becoming proficient in English and Chinese.

By , a Parent on

As you may know, P.S. 184 or Shuang Wen School has been in the papers and in the media a lot in the past few months. This is due to a change of administration and a group of parents who feel that they are entitled to attending a school that is not in their district. The name Shuang Wen means Dual Language, a name that has been duplicitous and not true up until recently with the new administration working to attain this goal. In the past, it was not true due to the fact that it was a regular public school with a Chinese after-school program run by SWAN. The new administration has taken the view that education is about equity and no child should have to pay $1,000.00 to learn Chinese in a public school.
The facts speak for themselves; in order to say you are a Dual Language school, you would have to have content that qualifies by some standard to show you are teaching students to learn Chinese. P.S. 184 has never in the past had these standards. I could say more, but I think I will leave it here, and just say that I and many others wish the new administration luck and will do all we can to support this real approach to teaching children Chinese and English.

PS 184 Shuang Wen is fun to learn in because there are no bullies in this school. Love it!

By , a Former Student on

It's a really good school because all students learn how to respect each other. Shuang Wen helps students prepare for their future so that they become successful. The demand for multilingual people in society has increased, so Shuang Wen has a tremendous benefit: the skill to speak/read/write Mandarin Chinese.
