P.S. 72 - Dr. William Dorney Reviews

1 review
I went to PS 72 for most of my life (PK-5) but I graduated 3 years ago and am going to high school now. I thank this school for really helping me get to where I am now. It is with the help of my fifth grade teacher that I am going to one of the best private schools in the city now. The teachers really care and really want you to be your best self there. My experience was some time ago, however, so there has been some changes in administration (although I do believe that it is mostly the same). I made some lasting friendships and had the time of my life being in clubs, honor roll, etc. I gave it four stars simply because depending on who you hang out with or the other kids at school, you can be exposed to some odd behaviors at a young age. Once we were able to eat lunch with the fifth graders (at 2nd grade level), I was exposed to fighting. (Then again my brothers fifth grade class was filled with wild children!)
