    P.S 19.Was 1st recognized as an opportunity for local individuals such as my parents, who came in to the south side of Brooklyn from other locations of New York to create a successful future for their children. Among them were four of us who’s lives has transformed in hope, promising, and a creative future. P.S.19 was the gateway for many now day students whom dreamed of a better happening towards the years to come. The teachers held the most highest respect and maintained the upmost perspective attitude when it came down to sharing their knowledge and giving their piece of mind for the students. Achievement was the goal to proceed into the higher standards the majority of us hold. To whom it may concern, and sincerely stating, This school holds more than just a future within a great number of students, the history within it’s more than just an effect…it’s in little words…a major part of our lives. God bless our school system and the great things they have done and will continue to do for our society!!!
