This is in response to the post done in May 2, 2009. I have not seen any performances every month. It seems we talk about two entirely different schools. Ms. Miller seems to yes want to better the school but is not quite there yet. The after-school programs drive most of the children nuts. A lot of them do not like it. They need activities other than only school work. I am not saying that that is not needed but the children do need other things to do. I have also never witnessed a 'Parent-Community Night' if you are refering to the PTA Meetings they are not that great. It is very unorganized. The school still needs improvement!!

The school has improved incredibly under the leadership of Mrs. Miller. She has put in a multi-million dollar playground for the students. She has implemented a multitude of Parent-Community Nights that the teachers actively participate, along with the community. Art, gym, music, monthly performances by grades, acting classes, dance classes, along with after-school programs. I could go on and on! Neglectful teachers no longer work at this school. Her attitude towards her position is 'Children First'. She treats all parents, children, teachers, support staff, and custodians with immense respect. I have read the previous reviews and I notice that they were written under the tenure of a different Principal. I'm so sorry for those other people's experiences. I only wish that their children could experience PS 246 now. It is a happy place to be!

Since moving back to New York, I'm must say this is the worst public school I have enrolled my child in. This will be my son's first and last semester in this school. I am sending him to another school. I have never seen such neglect towards education in the classroom. The students never have homework, or if they do it's only one page; then the teacher is absent the next day. Get it together people.

I do not like this school at all, the teachers and staff automatically think you speak Spanish and then give you attitude when you don't. There isn't even a proper gym or anything for the children to have a recess, so my step-son comes home completely wired, and 3 out of 5 days of the week the teacher forgets to give my kindergartner his books for his homework.

Good School. New administration and increased effort on behalf of the staff given the 'No Child Left Behind Act'.
