Eh, not really. They'll stand by while kids tease one another. The principal is a bad example on how one should behave compassionately.

The lunch aides are immature. They do not watch children and will develop favorites so they'll turn a blind eye to trouble makers whose parents are in PTA or donate a lot of money to school.

The parent coordinator is mean to parents. She serves more as a pitbull to keep parents from complaining to the principal, who refuses to remove her. The people who are Response to Intervention heads are laughable and took a few seminars and think they are school psychologists. The school based support team is good, however, but deal with the normal nightmare red tape that is the NYC department of education. Lots of wealthy parents send kids here, so the segregation in classes is huge.

I have a fifth grader in this school and a kindergartener.. This is a phenomenal school!! I can't believe so many people focus on gym to give this school negative reviews!! So disappointed that so many parents are focused on this new age learning system of no homework and allowing kids to run around like animals.. Discipline is a necessity and it helps develop a child that follows rules. The teachers are awesome and the principal has never been anything but nice to us. The parent coordinator is very helpful. Every time I've had a question and email the school I have had either a phone call or an email the same day. Fairly enough not all of the staff is as pleasant as most, but they respect the children. The school has so many fabulous programs which are FREE!! So for people to expect so much more is beyond my belief.. There's always private school. If your that focused on gym try paying for your kids education..

Part 2-So we opted to have my son stay enrolled and commute 3 over crowded trains too & fro daily so that he can have stable environment and consistency. While we tried to request a transfer to a shelter in brooklyn closer to his school (like the one in Flatbush ave just 1 train away)....

The comment below about the lack of gym class is very true. The school used to have a fantastic gym teacher (Mr. Ross) who was adored by both students and parents. He was innovative, created new programs such as dance and was a real asset to the school. Wonder why he is no longer here and why our students do not have gym at all any more??

PS 132 is a phenomenal school! Both of our children are receiving a well rounded education. The facility is brightly lit, clean and fun. Enrichment programs include music, yoga, cookshop, spanish, art and performing arts. They have a great computer lab and the communication has been great this year.

The administration needs to realize the students they serve are 3/4 to 10 years old. They are children. Sitting still in a classroom for 45 minutes per class is not an easy task, particularly for boys. Yoga isn't going to replace gym class, which is desperately needed for the children. The TADA residency is simply a once-a-week practice in class and lasts about two months for each grade. It's funded by the PTA. The discipline is old school. A lot of yelling and making kids feel bad instead of addressing the root. The band is pretty cool.

I heard about the Administration at PS132. And was shocked when ACS was called on our family 2 times. For NO reason. Even the child abuse investigator was alarmed and puzzeld. Some thing needs to change at that school. The principal is not a good fit nor is the parent co ordinator. TOO BAD!

There are a few good teachers at this school, and attention to the arts in education. But, the administration and staff in general are very old school. Teachers yell at children, the lunchroom is chaos, sitting still, obedience and lining up just so are treasured. Stay away from this school.
