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.

Bullying at this school is the worse I've ever seen (and I do have 2 older children who attended different NYC public schools). The parents do not discilpine their children and the school looks the other way and lets it go on. I've never experienced such a large number of spolied children and adults. I will be taking my son out of this school before September. However, the teachers are wonderful. It's a shame that they are doing away with the honors program for the middle school students. Some of these kids are serious students and have worked really hard to get into the ARP program & now they will have no honors listed on their 7th grade transcripts. The principal is constantly making terrible decisions and the children suffer.

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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
