This school has a warm sense of community and great spirit! The teachers are incredibly caring and warm, the facilities are among the best I've seen throughout Manhattan (public and private alike). We couldn't be happier here!

My two children both currently attend PS/IS 217. They are excited to go to school every day. They are curious, safe, and healthy. They have learned so much and have a great group of friends at the school. The school has excellent teachers and a wonderful parent community. We love 217!
The Roosevelt Island school is great because it is a small, close-knit community. It is also very diverse, due to the fact that many people who work in the United Nations live on the island. The only place it lacks, which is in number of varied courses, it makes up for in its sense of community.
