Open Quote P.S. 115Q - The James J. Ambrose School has a rigorous curriculum, exceptional students and engaged parents. A wonderful school with a kind and thoughtful Parent Coordinator. Close Quote

Open Quote My kid is in this school. The school got C grade in Year 2010-2011, and I expect the same grade in 2011-2012. The School Administration/ Leadership Team lacks knowledge on how to improve the school, give proper education to kids. Even in Gifted and Talented class, they do not have good teachers to teach. Teachers are full of partiality, politics. What else can you expect from a "C" grade school? Close Quote

Open Quote My son has been attending this school since 2009. The school got a C grade under this year NYC grading system. This might be the lowest grade in the entire district 26. Shame on the school admin and staff! The school should have focused more on learning. If possible, I absolutely want to make a transfer to any other district 26 school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
