I wished the teachers that worked there (at least for my sons class) acted like they cared. If a particular teacher is/was having difficulty reaching a child because of any chosen reason I feel as though it is the responsibility of that teacher to make the necessary changes, instead of continuing to try and "educate" the child you clearly are not reaching. My son was stuck with his teacher the whole school year and you could clearly tell she disliked him, summer school comes and we are like great maybe he can get a break.........nope. same teacher for summer school. How did we get so lucky?

I think it needs a fresh start and teachers who care. I have a child who only stayed in the school for a few mos before moving. She was below reading level and I knew that from the start. I tried everything out there and nothing kept her interested. We moved to another state and she is excelling in more place than one. PS67 tried to labeled her with an IEP and behavior issues(something that was not mentioned in the meeting). When I got to new school, the overview was, she was just below reading level(PS67 said reading and math), she was emotionally reacting to her change due to bullying(something I complained about) and lack of confidence. New school stated they would have rather PS67 say they didn't have the proper resources for her, instead of an IEP(which she didn't qualify for due to high performance). Thankful, within a month of moving, she is progressing to be on reading grade level by June and above by Sept. It has something to do with the school listening, monitoring, following through. Be your child advocate. Overall, they/CITY need to make smaller classrooms and listen to parents concerns. Its in a decent neighborhood, they should have same resources as district 15.

P S 67 is on the move the school will be known as the Charles a Dorsey school of the arts and the parents at this school are excited. the students here at ps 67 are very talented children and their abilities should be shown for the world to know that the staff at ps 67 was able to capture that talent and build on it. academics are moving I am proud to have my child attend ps 67. so the staff at ps 67 take stand you put your best foot forward and our children are doing well. thank you ms. Seabrook and ms. Berkel for providing a safe haven for the children of ps 67. I also see parents are getting more involved.

This is a great school. People just don't understand what's going on here at PS 67. They have an excellent music program. Your child get every staff members undivided attention. And the counselors that work for Partnership with Children are great. The school is on it's way. Great job Ms. Seabrook and Ms. Berkel keep our children learning.

This school is a huge disappointment.The moral is low. Thier is little parent participation. We have no music program to speak of. Most of the students are well below grade average However, somehow they manage to continue to be promoted to the next grade.This problem has existed in the school for a long time. At this point I feel that the only solution or salvation for this school or it's student is intervention. When a child reaches the fourth grade but is reading at a second grade level, this is a problem a big problem! If you can't help a student don't hurt him with a grave injustice such as this. This is almost criminal and, someone should be held accoutable. Starting with the parent then work your way up or down depending on how you look at it. If the right people are reading this please HELP! ASAP or SER Parent Of A Title I

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

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.
