Without any knowledge about American schools, we moved from Denmark to USA with our 3 kids last year. We visited PS 17 with our kids. they liked this school from the first time. We felt very welcome and professional service from the school staff. Our kids were not able to speak English. Now year after, they can write and speak fluently. The other subjects also reached the lever which they need to have. We are so proud them but we know all of these are school and teachers efforts. Its not easy move from country , home and friends, special in they are ages, but they school take care them with love which we as parents can fell that every single day. There is none day, I hear from kids, they don't want go to school. opposite they are always go to school with happy and trust. They fells so happy and safe with they teachers and proud they having the best teacher ... Really, we fell so lucky to have our kids in PS 17. The environment from school has created all the knowledge and love to our kids which are they most important in they are small world. We are so appreciate this school, they have made different.
