I want to say that I feel comfortable leaving my child at this school every morning. They are a bunch of nice people there. I can not say much about the parent association, never see them, however, the parent coordinator is very helpful, she always has a smile and really tries to help me out with whatever
... Read more I come to her with. She is warm and very friendly. When I go to the office, I have to sit and wait, but when I go in and see the parent coordinator, I never have to wait. The school it self is a great place for children, and being informed is not a lack of in PS 96. I can't wait to see all the information that is going to be sent home, my children are happy and I am happy too. I hope that every parent is as happy as me. Read less

My son scored a level 2 on his standardized english test. Unlike some schools in the dist. who would not accept children
... Read more that score a level 2 P.S.96 accepted him. They immediatly placed him in the schools extended day program. They also placed him in a test prep program which takes place after school. My son was a little upset because he wanted to attend one of the many after school programs at the school(basketball,tap,chess,journalism to name a few). I believe there are 12 in all. my son was made to understand the importance of these programs. he still enjoys art,gym,science as well as his library time in school. thank you principal,mr hawkins(teacher) and staff for helping my son.
