Although some of the staff is great including the Vice Principal the school is tremendously disorganized when it comes to communication with the parents. Their Special Needs setup is a joke. his school needs a tremendous reorganization starting with the principal.

Amount of homework: Too much
July 28, 2015
In my opinion as a former educator, the school piles on the homework because they are not getting enough done in the classroom. They give the responsibility to the parents to meet the standards. My child often came home with homework on topics he hadn't even learned yet in school...

So glad I finally got my child out of that school! The principal is the most incompetent, disinterested, criminally negligent administrator I have ever in my 22+ years as a parent and 10+ years in teaching had the displeasure of knowing. She should have been fired years ago, with what goes on at that school. She obviously has connections in high places. And the so called "family advocate" at the district office is a joke! They must be friends.

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
July 18, 2015
Although some of the teachers appear to be caring, their methods and materials are archaic, and they aren't skilled at adapting lessons to various learning styles

Rumor has it in the community this school will finally be shut down as should have been done years ago. Exactly 4 sets of parents in my neighborhood have removed their children from PS 207 and will be attending PS 7 in the fall. PS 207 put my son and family through the worst and would not wish it on any other parent or child, and per other parents whose children will attend PS 7 this fall not much has changed. Bullying is still rampant and staff still turning a blind eye. I am so happy my son is long gone from that place.

My son went to this school for Grade K and he cried every morning because kids were always picking on him and there's no type of disciplne. My son didn't learn anything. His teacher had 28 kids and no assistant. How is anybody going to control 28, 4 & 5 year olds? Impossible... I always tried to reach the principle & she never returned my calls.

I too agree with the issues of bullying, disorganization and expectations that are blamed on BOE. I was left with no alternative recently to file a formal complaint with 311 and BOE regarding the bullying issue where I was advised by the school I need to understand the lunch aides are 20 year old volunteer college students who do not know any better 'quote.' It has been over two weeks and not the school nor BOE has gotten back to me regarding the so called investigation they are allegedly conducting. I am definitely removing my son from this school and have already made plans to meet with the home schooling department at 1 Fordham plaza. I will further agree the VP is great, but she is only one person and most teachers are great, but I too have witnessed the unwarranted voiceferousness of others.

The school is pre-k to 2. As in most schools some teachers are great and others are in my opinion a bit vociferous per my personal observation. The vice principal is great and principal no where to be found although she will lead you to believe she is involved. PS 207 use to be St. Johns School. Maybe it should revert as such.

I am afraid I must agree with the bullying issue and disorganization of this school. I plan on home schooling my daughter this fall. Although the teachers who I had the opportunity to meet are very nice the adminitrative staff must be reorganized. Bullying is out of control including the expectations of a child, but that can allegedly be blamed on the Board of Ed.

The Principal is oblivious to community programs catered to help students with tutoring. They do not make any attempts to help parents with the childs education. No involvement at all... Do not place your child in this school.

My child is an excellent reader but not so good in math. There is no after school program for her to get help in math. If she would have a hard time reading she would qualify for the after school program. I don't understand that. There should be a program for both.
