Bullying is tolerated although reported to the principle , and staff members. The school needs to work on starting over and getting rid of the teachers who don't really want to teach here.

My brother attended this school in the 80"s it was a great school then, but not any longer. My kids and my nephew attended this school for a marking period and I had to get them out. The kids are not learning and the teachers don't care if the kids are not learning or if they are being bullied and harassed every day. The school yard is the worst there are liquor bottles and people hanging out smoking or doing drugs. I would not advise sending your child here. I am trying to get my niece and nephew out of here now the kids are over exposed to a whole lot of crazy things here.

My son is in the 3rd grade accelerated program, he is a great student and very smart. We are onhands parents and I think the parent/teacher coordinator is not used to parents like us. She is partial to the teachers and that is fine but she should always give the parents a chance to voice their opinions.

Both of my children are enrolled in PS 16 Wakefield School. The gym program was eliminated from the curriculum, which is not good because that usually is the only exercise kids these days get. There is very little parental involvement, as has been proven many times in Parent Association meetings. The teachers have a problem settling the children into classtime, mainly due to the overcrowding in this particular school.

My son, who is in the 3rd grade, attends the Wakefield school. I am satisfied that he benefits from the overall academic curriculum in the school. They stress on writing skills and math. There is a lot of teacher/parent interaction which also contributes to the progress of the students in general. I am happy with my son's progress in that he reads above his level and his math is above average.
