Amount of homework: Too much

the homework that they give those children are not what they are learning. they have the children upset and willing to give up to the point that some do not wish to go to school.

This school is a Horrible school. no matter what you say. the school is known fro bullying. among that the principal does not care for the well being of the children. there is only two security guards at the school. children have walk out of the school. got hurt and more. they need to have someone look into the schools record of emergency tranfers. and other things that they fail to let the parents know about.

The last Quality Review for PS 40 found it to be on top of all the issues that were pointed out on the previous years. There is a plan in place for each and every concern and progress is being tracked to make sure that the plan is working. Students, teachers and parents are aware of what this plan is and were a part of the creation of the plan with the Principal. The children of PS 40 have available to them a level of education second to none!
