I'm a parent. My daughter is in the the third grade. This school is getting better. They have afterschool programs for the kids. The principal Dr. Coleman is gobe. We have a new principal Ms. Lawrence. She seems nice and trying to fix Dr. Coleman mess. As for the teachers they are pretty good. Hopefully the school test scores will go up and yhe students will do better.

The school has wonderful teachers who do their best, but without the support from the principle they are very limited with what they are able to do. I've heard teachers talk with great enthusiasm at the beginning of the school year and finish with disappointment. I am grateful that my kids had the privilege of being thought by them. It's unfortunate so many of the teachers are leaving. Mr Coleman needs to and has to go..... and let someone with vision and support for our kids to take over. Why does our kids have to fail before someone intervenes? Parents involvement (PTA) very poor, he likes it that ways, because lack of information means lack of knowledge. Lets see if takes an "F" to get him out.

I am a Child who goes to this school....... I am in the 7th grade...... Dr. Coleman is a great guy... he does everything he has, to put these kids in a good standard... But the kids don't listen.... not all kids who go to this school are bad.... Some are Good... Some are bad..... I have been going to this school for 7 years now.... I Love the teachers, and principles...... they are nice and respectful..... they care about the children....... But I promise you... soon this schools is going to change and become a great school..... it's just that... these kids need to pass......

This school is a hot, ghetto mess from the top to the bottom. If the principal were more concerned with the PROPER running of the school instead of which suit he's going to wear, the students wouldn't behave like mindless hooligans. You've got to do better, Coleman. P.S. 181 is a failure because of YOU!

Posted March 5, 2012

this school is terrible!!! this principal is self centered and does not care about the kids. Most of the teachers are good but without support from their principal they cant do much. My daughters in the fourth grade and i cant wait to get her transferred into a new school. the lower grade teachers and assistant principals are wonderful but as you go up the school falls apart!!

The teachers in the school are good but the principal is quite arrogant . The aides are quite rough and are always shouting at the kids

I graduated from this school many moons ago and my son is currently attending this school. From what I see not much has changed. The teachers are great but the students are horrible. I feel sorry for some of these teachers who have to babysit these kids. From what I see, the majority of these kids are undisciplined. they play too rough with each other,curse,climb gates and scream. It has a real circus meets rikers island feel to it. Dismissal is chaotic. Children get out at the new york avenue entrance and just sit there. no one tells them anything. people are trying to enter with strollers struggling to go up stairs while students and parents are making there way down. The water fountain in the Gym area has been broken all year long and so has the clock in the hall beside the gym.

My son attended this school and i currently have nephews at PS 181. The teachers are great and are gems at this school. The only problem I have is the lack of parent involvement and this isn't all due to a lack of parent involvement but is more because the people who have been long involved in the PTA, para programs, committees and other family related have put up a 'iron wall'. They are not welcoming and do everything possible to make you say 'to hell with this, I'll just work with my child at home'. This is from experience. I once typed up a letter to notify parent of an upcoming election... (6 weeks in advance) the letter was not sent out until the 5 b4 the election. Time for new faces! Other than that, the school is great

My children attended ps 181(2005 -2006). Couldn't wait to have them transfered. Both of their teachers were exceptional, (grade 1 and 3). However, I was truly appaled by the unorganized after school program, the early morning drop off and the attitute, discipline and overall behavior. Absolutely disrespectful, to parents, to adults on the whole. It would take me on average 25 mins before I collected them. Useless, security guards/attendants/administration, useless.No one cares, its a paycheck. That's all.

I am the mother of four children, three of who have already left PS181. My last child there is entering the fifth grade. I am a very active parent and was the PTA president for a year. The school is equipped with many resources to provide the students with an adaquate education, many children are falling far below the standards. Althought there are some exceptionally talanted and professionally competent teachers, I believe that the failures are the results of poor teaching styles and inexperience. There is little or no motivation for the students by many teachers and children are often spoken to inappropriately. Parents are prevented from getting involved in many aspects of their children's education. The PTA have been linited in their function and many serious concerns are often dismissed. There is a great need for more of the Arts to be included in the cirriculum as well as afterschool programs.

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 2012-2013 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. 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.
