How can anyone take the principal seriously and look at him as a effective leader when his staff refers to him as "Moo" when their talking to him? Moo is focused on being invited to community events and not the students. Most of the staff are his friends and he does not make them be professional.
Not at all. The staff don't respect the principal let alone the students. The staff is also lacking in character. They openly discuss student grades in front of other students. My sons classmates knew his grade because the teacher was happy to share it with everyone.
My sons are not happy at P.S. 83. The mostly Italian staff care more about the Italian students than the others. The staff regularly diminishes the self-esteem of non-Italian students and allows underperforming students to get by with average work because the teachers don't care and don't think they are capable of doing better. "Promotion in Doubt" letters go out to students who don't need them. The school environment is not welcoming to parents and don't want parents around and act like you are bothering them when you come or call. The school stinks literally. When you walk in it smells badly.
