You Tube Video Of What Makes A Good Teacher
Roosevelt Island's PS/IS 217 PTA is holding a Question and Answer information session for anyone interested in learning about the school on Saturday February 6 at 1 PM. According to the PTA:
Interested in learning more about our local Island school? Please join us for an informational session, with parents of current PS/IS 217 students available to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Also, on Monday February 8 at 8:45 AM, the first of three morning tours of the school will be conducted.

A recent parent review of the school from Inside Schools.org reports:
Our daughter went to PS/IS 217 for pre-K and now goes to K. The school has great facilities. The staff is highly qualified. The class sizes are smaller than in most other public schools. The school offers in-class music & arts programs, and after school clubs (math, science, chess, drama, Spanish etc.) Cons: G&T program at PS/IS 217 is relatively new. Also, PS/IS 217 is very international. Students come from 60 countries, & many of them are children of United Nations employees, who learn English as a 2nd language = lower average academic scores. These families can move to another country at any time, so the classes are not as uniform or as stable as some people may like. Location is not ideal for Manhattan families. People complain about the PTA, but from my perspective it is very active this year. And the administration is open to all PTA initiatives. Lower grades parents asked for a foreign language program, and it only took 2 months for the school to get it set up.
Here is the NYC Department of Education online portal for Roosevelt Island's PS/IS 217. Another source of information is this new blog - The Roosevelt Island School G & T Class Blog which also includes links to other class blogs.
