Perhaps the kerfuffle over Brooklyn Heights' PS8 will be mollified by the other news about New York City schools: lots of 'em earned A's. Nine of those A's came from schools that had been marred by F's the last time around, the NY Times reported, including Clinton Hill's PS270, which the Post reported rose to sixth place overall. We poked around ourselves on the New York City schools' Web site, where you can scour the records of your neighborhood school. Here's what we found:
· Park Slope's much hyped PS 321 received a B: A for school environment, C for student progress and B for student performance;
· Boerum Hill's PS 261 earned a C: C for student progress, and B's for environment and performance;
· The Slope's PS 107, home to "Readings on the Fourth Floor," earned a solid A in all categories;
· Clinton Hill's PS 11 earned a B: a C in environment and progress and an A in performance;
· Cobble Hill's PS 29 earned a C, with a D in student progress, and A in environment and a B in performance.
