How can a school deal with bullies when many of the staff are the bullies? If you go to Mrs. Wiehe and complain that your child is being bullied she blames your child. She does not investigate the situation just blames.
The school is great! not sure what others are talking about. I have had both my children in the school as well as many of my friends children and have never had a bad experience. If i did encounter a problem it was taken care of. Parents must remember that there are over 1600 kids in the school and it is hard to keep an eye on each and everyone one of them, also if students enter a altercation with one another it is not the faculty and staffs responsibility to break up the fight. I also think some of the PARENTS need A REALITY CHECK!!!!!!! Great school WONDERFUL STAFF NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS ABOUT PS 83 IN THE 8 YEARS MY CHILDREN HAVE BEEN IN THE SCHOOL AND ALSO MY NIECES AND NEPHEWS LOVE IT HERE.
The school always stays on top of bullying, physical or cyber. if your a true parent and visit the school regularly, and pay attention to the projects and homework your children are assigned, you would see how many posters and essays the children create for bullying awareness that are hung up all around the hallways and classrooms in the school. The schools always handles situations in the appropriate way !I think some parents are the bullies.
This school does not deal with disrespect from the children or any of its staff members. The students are always taught to treat each other the way the want to be treated. All staff members go above and beyond for their students. Not sure what others say about staff members using their phones in class around the children.There are daily checkups on classrooms and staff members will be penalized. Teachers only use there phone when they have no class or are on lunch.. I think if you are not happy at the school and with all your negative comments you probably should consider taking your child out..
The schools cares for their students educational needs. If a student is having trouble there is always help available for them. THEY DO NOT DISCRIMINATE DUE TO COLOR OR ETHNIC BACKGROUND! ALL STUDENTS ARE TREATED EQUAL. If they need help they will receive it, and if they need to be placed in a slower paced classroom then that is what will happen.
PS 83 used to be a good school but since Mr. Muccino has been principal things are terrible. He has no leadership skills at all and he has no control over the school. The staff is not dependable because you can't trust them with information. The parent coordinator is a gossip who shares deeply personal business with other parents and staff members and the principal knows this but does nothing because he really doesn't care. The teachers are rude to kids and have low expectations of the students of color. The main building is scary and not safe. Kids are not supervised and things go on that should not.
