Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

If the school is so bad and the teachers so horrible why are class sizes so large? Why are they a blue ribbon school. I attended back to school night with 6 other parents, there are 29 kids in the class.......

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Having students review a math lesson and a reading skill seems reasonable to me. Some do give way more.


Develops character: Agree

The school tries to teach students to take ownership of all their work, not just a test.

My cousins here are bullied, the teachers here bully students autistic or not. When my aunt went to complain, the teachers, principal, and the super attendant would not listen to her so she went to the Board of Education which worked but it's still miserable for some students

This school is very unorganized, has huge class sizes and no functioning PTA. They have good test scores only because of the parents doing all the heavy lifting..

seems like the best school in the area, hard to say anything negative, most teachers are good

Unbelievable! To call Russian parents obnoxious. I will report it as a harassment . If u r Russian , you are a shame to the community . If not, then you need to apologize and turn to your own community and examine what is wrong with you Good luck with your miserable attitude

My child is at this school in K. It is a fight every morning to get her to go to school, I do not know what is going on when I ask her teacher if someone is bothering she tells me no. I feel this school puts a lot of pressure on kids for no reason!

My son attended this school for 2 years, the school as a whole is average. But some individual teachers are very good. The special needs department is pretty amazing! I will say, when Hurricane Sandy hit, the school was affected and they gave out backpacks with supplies to all of the children. That was very thoughtful and showed the schools heart!

I agree with other posts, that biggest problem to the school is its principal Ms Maloney and to lesser extend her right hand Ms. Palicci. Their authoritarian style and vindictive personalities make kids and teachers afraid to say something that might provoke Maloney"s anger. There is a rumor that complaining about her to authorities will not help as she has a supporter (relative or friend) i=very high in administration. A lot of parents chose to move to suburbs only because of the atmosphere in the school. Its funny to see 5 or 6 comments on this board posted on the same day by Maloney and her buddies. School got C rating on school report. Just wondering if DOE sees this messages. My kid will be out of school next year, thanks god.
