There is poor communication between the parents, teachers and/or principal. Some of the younger teachers seem inexperienced. Class sizes are very large and children's needs can be ignored. Great for your child if they are in the CIG or Eagle program, otherwise, not so much. Some behavior problems of children in the higher grades go unchecked and whole class has to suffer for the actions of a few.
This is a great school with many caring teachers. As with every school, there are just a few which may need to be put out to pasture but doesn't affect the overall spirit of the school. I have noticed the population here is very diverse within the general classrooms however this number does appear to dwindle considerably when it comes to the Eagle classes. There is a large disparity in that regard. I wouldn't say its any bias but more the lack of some students inability to work at the levels in these faster paced classes. My children love this school, they are 100% engaged everyday and I am very pleased with their teachers, the assistant principals/principles and overall performance.
School has some great teachers and some lously teachers. Not a good school for ethnic children, very biased and one sided. Otherwise a great school.
I am a parent of a student that is very proud to be in the first graduating class of the Fillmore Academy part of 207. My daughter is in the CIG program and it is not only great but challenging. She scored high in the Science regents last year and is looking forward to taking her other science and math regents this year. She was accepted to all 3 private schools and also the public school programs that she applied. The middle school teachers are wonderful as well as all the other grade teachers. I wanted to mention that this school has the biggest and hardest working PTA of any school and I am happy that I was able to be a part of it for over 8 years. My child has definately benefited from this school. I am happy to have chosen it for her from the start of pre-k.
I am a student here at the P.S. 207 Elizabeth G. Leary School. I am in the 7th grade. I absolutely love this school. I was sooo happy when the school gave us the opportunity to go to middle school here. Now, this school is a K-8 school. I think that the teachers are amazing. They are very proffesional and they help me and my classmates when we need help. The school also tries their very best with the extra curriculum activies. They have many different clubs. There is band, newspaper, student council, volleyball, and even floorhockey! Every season of the school year, they have new sports but all of these programs that i have listed, I am in. I love this school also because you dont have to choose one program and stay with it. I have been going here since pre-k. this school is great!
I took my children out of Catholic School and placed them in PS 207, took a huge leap of faith because I had no experience with public schools. It was the best thing I ever did. My children blossomed in public school and are doing so well. The administration and faculty really care about the children and care about their outcomes. I am so glad I made the switch!
My son is currently attending this school! And I feel that they are doing an excellent job with their students, so much so that I don't want to move out of the area!
Some of the best teachers in the ny education sys. As example Ms.Contursi .Any student that is in her class will be assured that they have a dedicated and caring teacher. S defrancesco for cj latorre
PS 207 is a wonderful school with a lot of community involvement. The parent participation is pleasantly overwhelming in a time when both parents are working. I trust that my children are well taken care of when I drop them off in the morning until I pick them up in the afternoon. Both of my children are doing exceptionally well as a direct result of the nurturing they get from PS 207!
As A pretty new mom to the school My daughter did great in secong gread now going into the eagle come sept. I can't wait to see what she comes home with. The teacher don't play around with the kids as them not doing there school work, and there willing to push the kids to do there best!!!
This is an excellent school. My daughter graduated last year and my 4 nieces now go there. Mrs Bosco (the principal) runs that School like a school should be ran.
This school is a great school. The teachers are dedicated and professional. The administration is helpful and the school offers reading and math help after school.
This is an excellent school. The parents in this area give a lot of support to the school financially so the school has the very best equipment and educational supplies. The staff and teachers are very attentitive and really make you feel that your childs education is their priority. It has been rated #455 out of over 2500 New York Public Schools for Reading and Math Scores. Overall I am very happy with the education and experiences my son and I have had at PS 207!!
