PS 229 Emmanuel Kaplan School Reviews
This school is excellent. I'm in the I.G.C. program for 3 years, intelligent and gifted class. Sure everything is more challenging, but is awesome. They have good teachers. Math and tech are my fave. Making friends is pretty easy. They are not strict, but they have enough control over us.
I didn't like my first years here. The kids were pretty mean and the teachers didn't really seem that helpful. But I grew to like this school in the end.
The administration of PS 229Q needs to improve their relationship with the parent community. They seem to favor problem children over children who follow the rules. The teachers are wonderful but need to have more control over students in the classroom. Discipline is lacking and the school performance continues to decline each year on standardized tests. I wouldn't recommend PS 229 to my friends. They need new administrators...
