Dr. Ajwani has been Principal at P.S. 229 since 2004 and during her distinguished 12-year tenure as Principal of P.S. 229 our students have reached greater heights and P.S. 229 has been able to lead the way in educational success in our community.

Council Member Crowley has worked with the school to renovate numerous physical upgrades, including: the school yard, auditorium, cafeteria, murals, playgrounds, air conditioners, new furniture, new floors, new library, new computers & Smartboards. Council Member Crowley has also funded Midori Music in its expansion at the school and ballroom dancing becoming part of every 4th grader’s curriculum.

“Under the leadership of Dr. Ajwani, P.S. 229’s scores steadily increased and today P.S. 229 is one of the highest performing schools in the district with solid ELA and math scores. Upon her retirement, she can be proud and know that her great legacy of service will continue to resonate not only within the walls of the school, but also within the minds of countless students, alumni and colleagues throughout our City,” said Council Member Elizabeth Crowley.
