PS Q177 is a safe and orderly school where the leadership is liked and 100 percent of teachers say they would recommend this school to other families, surveys report.
Based on the 2015 Quality Review, it is clear that teachers care about making content relevant to real life situations. In class, subjects such as filling out job applications and knowing what appropriate work attire is are discussed. In addition to crafting a curriculum that teaches skills and content that extend beyond the classroom, the school provides pre-vocational training from school based worksites such as the School Store, the Culinary Institute, and Custodial training.
The school, which serves around 500 1st through 12th grade students, is located in four sites across Queens. The Comprehensive Education Plan makes evident that the different sites serve different types of learners.
