This school need to be shut down. My niece attended this school and although she did well ( because of family involvement) this school did not keep her safe. When she was in kingergarden the school "lost" her. Allowed her to leave the building on her own at age five. The police got involved. By the grace the god, a kind gentleman took her home after being lost on the streets. I have many storys similar the one above describing the school lack of security and teachers involvement. LAZY, UNPROFESSIONAL are the two words that come to mind. I would rather sell my soul before i send my only child there.

I initially thought about the possibility about the outdated posts when I read these reviews about the school. I have a family member who attends the school, also a student of Ms. Cooper. But, all of the teachers are not like Ms.Cooper, the kindergarten teacher. Nor is the Pricipal, Ms.Rahman, as efficient. Ms. Hall is a great school Safety Officer, but she can not be everywhere all the time.There was a serious problem of bullying that my child faced, and it was not addressed seriously. The bullying continued with my child and affects his view of school. It also disappoints me as a parent. It hurts me to have to take my child to school knowing there is fear of what will happen next! This is not an outdated message! After trying to resolve the issues with the administartors directly, I was forced to take the problems up with the department of education. I am still waiting for the results! All I can say is choose the school wisely when deciding on your child's education. It will save you the stress I had to go through for the 2010-2011 school year.

I have two boys that attend PS 92 they have been there now for three years. I absolutely love this school. The Principal and Asst Principle are no-nonsence administrators who simply get things done. The teachers are excellent! I thought I would cry when my son left Mrs. Cooper's Kindergarten class, she had become such a central person in both my and my son's life. I can't rave about the teachers enough! My boys are safe, the Safety Officer Ms. Hall will keep an eye on your child and come and tell you immediately what is going on. Notice that the other negative comments below are out of date, I couldn't sing the praises of '92 louder!

I have a child there, and cannot wait to move him elsewhere. The head is weak, so the school does not stand a chance.

I find this school to be deplorable. The faculty works to do the bare minimum. The principal supports the teachers when they're wrong.

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. 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.
