During the summer there are different people from different schools. I am curious why your child is in summer school. Why didn't he or she do good during the school year so he doesn't have to go to summer school. I never had one of my children in summer school.

I agree with the teacher who left a comment about the school this is the first school in my life that the kids run it.My son goes here but I will be pulling him out of here and trying my best to put him in a better school so he doesn't think that school is about running around,fighting not listening.He was in summer school I went to pick him up can you believe the teacher who was in charge of my son safety didn't know where he was at.He didn't even look scared that my son could have been taken by someone other than his parents.Parents it's not haters it's giving these kids a great education not being friends with the kids and letting them do whatever they want is pushing them so they can grow up and be teacher,lawyers,doctors etc I guess some parents just don't understand.

This school is HORRIBLE Do not send your children here. The kids do whatever they want to and no body stops them. School safety will not rush to stop a fight. The administrators are unapproachable. The children run around they building like they are the adults and the adults simply do not care....and do not even bother to try and meet with the principal because he is never available to hear the complaints about the chaos that goes on in his building.

I love P.S. 55 because all are welcome to share in the education of their child. Parents are encouraged to come to the school and help in any way they can. Whether it be as a class parent, a member of the PTA or a learning leader.
