PS 130 has always been the best, most diverse school in Brooklyn. They teach children to be responsible and accepting of all cultures. Thank all the teachers there for their untiring dedication.

My son has been there since kindergarten, he is now going to th 4th grade. All his teachers thus this far have been wonderful. On the downside, I believe that the assistant Principal needs to work on her attitude, its horrible.
