Ps 288 The Shirley Tanyhill 3

Posted April 28, 2014

The best things about this School is the truly involved parent coordinator, Mr. Monroe and the awesome Heartshare beacon afterschool program and free heartshare beacon summer camp. The principal and the assistant principals all need to be changed. The teachers don't give enough homework and I'm always worried about my child falling behind but some of teachers are very involved and seem to enjoy their jobs.

The Teachers, Principal, and staff are great hard workers! This school is overdue its' recognition and just due rewards. I have witnessed some actions that I believe I would not ave hreceive from any other school. I hope this year accomplishments will be seen and appreciated!

This school has done wonders with my children not only do the teachers and other school staff teach our children they show them respect which I feel you need not only teach a child how to read and write but how to respect each other.
