I am really happy with the school in general. I do hope that communication improves and currently we are not loving the earlier hours and wish it was communicated and discussed better.. I'm happy with the teachers and the day to day. Also, I like the new programs added when funding is available.

The quality of education the children at PS 78 receive is excellent. The principal believes in educating the whold child and proves this with the curriculum and programs he provides before, during, and after school. My child can be enriched before school, participate in music, art, technology, physical ...  Read more
