The school made an incredible improvement. The new principal is really working hard to make sure students are on top of their game. some of the best teachers my daughter had are from this school. the only problem is to get more parents involved in the activities and meetings, but we (parents) are working on that issue. my daughter is a senior now and we will really miss the personal attention and the great teachers she had.
The school is really turning the corner. They have a new principal and assistant principal who are raising expectations and focusing on high school preparation. I think the best is yet to come for this school!
Overall I would say MS 256 is a very good school.My son receives alot of personal attention.The teachers stay in close contact with the parents,so we know whats going on with our children. I feel my son is safe at ms 256.The teachers and principal are very involved with the students.I have visited the school several times and found it to be very well run.Smart pleasent teachers,friendly students and a safe atmosphere.
