I am a parent and I am extremely happy that my two children attended Public School 43. The Principal acted consistently in the best interest of students and the school. The Principal is a leader with a broad purpose to facilitate a climate where students have opportunities to examine their own purpose. Teachers encourage students to learn research and technology skills so that they have access to the widest, broadest, and deepest thinking in the world on topics with which they are most involved. Teachers also encourage students to find personal meaning in their academic learning; and teachers assist students in finding ways to put into action the kinds of thinking and changes that are happening within them. Students experience purpose and meaning through many avenues: classroom activities, extracurricular activities, and connections with other students. Students also learn very early that teachers and other adults expect them to question, to seek solutions, to learn where and how to gather information, to experiment with a variety of responses, to help others seek information, and to report to others on their learning. I can go on and on commenting about Public School 43. The Principal, Assistant Principal, teachers and other staff members are awesome. I would recommend any parent to register their child at Public School 43!
I am not happy with the school. It has changed greatly since I was there as a child. The teachers grade the children with low scores eventhough they do not deserve it. It has been hard to change my child's records -he knows the material well, helps other children yet got scored meeting standard. He meets and exceeds them. I will be transfering him out! I also noticed there isn't much organization throughout the school which is embarrasing and heartbreaking since we should be protecting one another.
