  • Reviewed by Community Member on August 02, 2010
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • PS2 ha been a nurturing and family felt school in the Morrisania community for over 50 years.
    After being force to relocate into a neigboring school, to make room for Highschools to occupy the original building, PS 2 continues to survive with few veteran teachers and new teachers.

    There has been a substantial increase n in academic achievement in 2008-2010, but to no avail, PS2X will be phased out after being a supportive institution in the community for over 50 years.
