My son has been attending this school since kindergarten, he is now in 1st grade and we have had issues with bullying- he has come home with ripped clothes, and bruises. I am glad this school is phasing out; it gives kids a chance to transfer out without being in a body bag first. There seems to be slow improvement being made but the teachers in the lower grades have no control over the kids. It's a zoo. The administration isn't that bad, they seems willing to assist but again slow progress is being made. The grade this school received is a F, thank God it's phasing out and hopefully the replacement school develops a strong structure for the kids, they need it.
ME AND MY FAMILY MOVED IN THE AREA IN LATE DECEMBER.. MY SON STARTED ATTENDING THIS SCHOOL AND I MUST SAY THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE... LACK OF SAFETY A PRINCIPAL WHO CAN CARE LESS ABOUT THE SMALLER CHILDREN SAFETY... THIS SCHOOL REALLY NEEDS 2 CLOSE DOWN... NO PARENT INVOLVEMENT, TEACHERS DONT CARE ABOUT THE STUDENTS EDUCATION OR SAFETY...... THERE IS ALOT OF THINGS THAT GOES ON IN THIS SCHOOL THAT IS BEING COVERED UP BY SCHOOL OFFICIALS... I MUST SAY ONE THING I AM SO HAPPY MY CHILD WILL NO LONGER ATTEND THIS CARELESS SCHOOL.....GOODBYE PS/IS73 WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE TO SUFFER....
My 2 children started attending this school because we lived in the area. After 2 year's of no after school programs, no gifted programs,an extended program that seemed like it just kept kids until the time was up(vs. Actually giving the kids the help they needed), and various complaints to school officials who seemed like they could care less., I will be moving my kids to a community where the principal care's & take's pride enough in his/her school to fight for after school programs, more educational trips, better teacher's and a better enviroment where my kids feel safe at all times.Its sad that we have to look to another district/communty to give our children the proper education,support and love that they derserve but both my kids have test scores above the average percentile and i would be cheating them out a better education if i didnt!
