  • Reviewed by Former Student on August 09, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I graduated from P.S. 17 in June, 1959. My teachers were the greatest especially Mr. Trella, Mr. Lipman, and Mr. Miller. Because of them, I became a teacher and now approaching retirement as a university professor in counseling. I had a chance to visit the school last year and meet the principal and a teacher who also was a student. I learned a lot of material and had great friends. Many thanks to P.S. #17
