Posted May 10, 2013

My son has been attending this school for the past three yrs..I am so disappointed with the way the teachers,principals,and staff handle certain situations..There is so much bullying going on that I don't feel my son or any other student is safe here..The thought of taking my child out has cross my mind various times,but the hope of things improving and the outstanding grades he gets is why I haven't done so.I wish more parents can get involved and speak up..These are our children and this is their future..School is suppose to be fun and educational,not tormenting or stressful..PS75 needs new principals and staff nice the ones that are there now are not on their job..My son has one more yr to go and I just hope that things can improve..if not I'm going to have to take him out just like various parents have done with their children...THE BULLYING NEEDS TO STOP..TOO MANY ACCIDENTS AND TOO MANY CHILDREN ARE GETTING HURT!!!!!SOMEONE HELP THIS SCHOOL

My son is only in the first grade and I fear that if he stays in this school any longer he wll not get the proper help he needs to succeed in a school environment. The staff runs on a like or dislike form of effort whether its towards another teacher, parent or student. I really dont like leaving my son there every morning. Nobody is willing to take any responsiblity for anything. His teachers dont give homework on weekends yet wants to hold the child over based on academic level due to behavior. There are 14 boys and 2 girls in this class which causes a great inbalance. Bottom line, as a parent you are on your own, dont expect too much help from here. With the exception of Ms. Gonzales and Ms Guzman, the passion of schooling is not on these grounds. I do my part. Next year, he will not be attending this school even if I have to move. This is from a single mother with one child and a bachelors degree.

My son is on the autistic spectrum and has been in this school since kindergarten. He has come a long way because of the dedication of his therapist, teachers and principal. He will be attending inclusion in Sept for 3rd grade and this would not have been possible without their hard work.

This school is horrible, you send your child to school everyday hoping he will be safe, this is not the case with this school your child is not safe at this one, i have seen the school aides become rough with the kids, most of the kids are bullies, and this school does not have a strong bully policy, there is not one day where i feel safe with my son there, the attendance guy is very rude and sarcastic, the only person that has helped me and that tries to help everyone is the parent coordinator Ms. Gonzalez... The bottom line is don't send your child to this school...

The principal Mrs. Garcia is not very friendly. The staff is rude. The children in this school curse and fight often. This school needs help desparetely. The school staff are too busy gossiping that they do not realize other parents are walking right in to the school, next time it could be a person harming your children. No air conditioners in most classes. The lunch staff do not watch children being hit and abused by other children. They need new staff that will care about the children and a new system. This is why the schools are failing. From a parent who is getting her child out of P.S. 75 fast.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
