Ps 244 Richard R Green 1

Very poor performing school, average test scores, severe bullying problem, poor administration! Parents bully each other! I went to this school in the early 90s, and I didn't even stay for 2 years! It was horrible then, and it's horrible now! I had my then 4 year old in the pre-k program! It was a nightmare! I took my son out of this school! My child is doing extremely well in an historical Catholic School! I have a neighbor that wants to remove her CHILD from this school because he is being bullied so bad! This school is horrible, and I feel bad for any child that is enrolled there! Even P.S 135, and P.S 268 near by are higher performing schools!

My Daughter is in K and am surprise at the different thing that she learns e.g. matter. She is so excited about learning French. At five my daughter can spell the word 'favorite'. The principal is very encoraging and her teacher is very resposive to my notes. Excellent school.

I have a child in Pre-K and I am overwhelmingly pleased with the education she is receiving. However, the Principal and Vice Principals have a long way to go before meeting that standard. They are disorganized.

This is the worst school I have ever come in contact with. The principal is uncaring, however the teachers are great, for the most part. There is an unbelievable discipline problem that needs to be addresses asap!

I have two daughters that attend this school. It needs improvement in parent/teacher relationship. Although, the school is located in a nice neighborhood. I feel safe leaving my daughters there.

The excel program is wonderful. I have two children in the program one is in first grade and the other is in forth grade, so far they are doing wonderful and I expect them to continue in the program. I gave the excel program a a+.
