My daughter has attended this school since Kindergarten and is currently in the 5th grade. No School is perfect, but the staff at this school truly try their best to improve things throughout the year. They continually bring in outside enrichment programs, and look for innovative ways for the children to excel academically. As a parent my overall opinion of the school is favorable and my child is happy as well.

There are a few things I do not agree with on and I will bring it up on the next PTA meeting, ,

I must agree Mr. Kovac is running the school down.... In order to speak to him you must go through 3 different people only to be told that he is unavailable. He sent out a letter stating that he has an "open door policy" this is far from the truth. The staff looks misrable and the grades worst. I was the happy parent that wrote about how my son transferred from a private school and all the help he received. I still stand behind the teachers but the principal must be changed!

I have 2 children who went from k-5 at p.s. 14. While I loved the school under the former principal, Mr. Guzzio, the current principal, Mr. Kovac has brought this school to the ground. He came to the school and hired a parent coordinator who is his puppet! Evelyn's main focus day in and day out is to sugar coat every horrible think he does and persuade the parents that the truth is actually far removed from what it is. While I hands down loved just about all of the teachers I have come into contact in p.s.14 this principal has made this school one that parents run from (move out of the ares to avoid) instead of the school that parents once coveted. Any teacher who does not agree witjh every word he says, or who doesn't cover for his outragous behavior is written up and eventually FIRED!!

Parents, ask yourselves this question; how can children learn in a school where the teachers are constantly looking over their shoulder, afraid that the dictator is going to make up some fictionary infraction to write them up for and ultimately fire them! Seasoned teachers are running from or being fired from this school and being replaced with inexperinced teachers who are afraid to stand up for themselves and our children!

I love P.S 14 because when ever I have a question for a teacher, the principal and our parent coordinator it is answer right away. Mr. Kovac is all about the kids and making sure they receive the best education possible. Ms. Evelyn always has very helpful workshops to help us help our kids.

My daughter attended this school for kindergarten only but I would have loved for her to stay thru 5th grade. The teachers are staff is very kid friendly and her teacher was phenomenal. Since my daughter left they have improved greatly on their expansion and quality of afterschool activities. The custodial staff is always on the look out for the safety of the kids. The parent coordinator is very involved with the parents and has an open door policy. We loved it there. Lesly Lopez
