a great majority of this school is filled with children whose parents have an unrealistic sense of entitlement. The parents are so involved in the micro-managing of their children's school days, that the staff has their guard up for anyone they encounter. There is a lot of yelling from teachers and staff (lunch ladies) and no sense of joy when you walk the halls. Several of the teachers who actually "taught" have left. I took my child out and sent her to private school. Leadership is non-existent and it's a "daily" occurrence to see teachers on their cell phones during class. Before you move, make sure you live in the area for Sousa. I hear its much better.
Great place!? Getting rid of PEP program was a terrible choice its would have been great to keep it my son is enjoying it so much. The PEP teacher was also willing to go that extra mile for the kids. Thanks...
I love Daly! All 3 of my kids go or went here. They have so much diversity and are very accepting of all. The teachers are great and we have a dynamic new principal.
They offer a range of programs and activities to engage and enrich the diverse student population.
All 3 of my children went to John J Daly school. This school is excellent! My children received the best education. The teachers and entire staff are very caring for the students and will go out of their way to go the extra mile.
overall the faculty are nice; however, curriculum is under the pressure from the district/ny state standard. it really lacks of creativity and not updated at all! Management is defimitely the one to be blamed. Resources have been wasted on parateaching staffs and some special ed. intervention. I'm a frustrating parent and wish this low rating with 2 stars can wake up the schooll administrators.
