The principal of this school does not care about parental involvement. She does not want parents involved espically working parents.

This school has deteriated in the past months with the new principal. Many things have been covered up behind closed doors, which parents are still confused as to what purpose does this principal serve? She was or hasn't fully reached out in a warm and inviting way to the parents of PS50. There have been more than five times where the police was called to the school without a brief explaination of why or was the safety of our children was ever a concern when parents saw the police vehicles outside the school. How parents are restricted from using the building (which from the rules and regulations of the nyc chancelaor) parents are welcomed and are incouraged to be part of the school' s enviroment. How can parents be misguided about the the basic truth about their children and the way that this process of a millitant order is and has been established, which takes away the rights the as parents, we ADVOCATE for from the first day they were born. Something should change the way the GOD complex with principals, have confused and strayed their really purpose of what their job details states. For those that are still in search, ASK FOR MORE RESULTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know my child is in good hands when she walks through those school doors in morning. There are staff members in the school who knows her by name and she can go to in cases of need. I believe the principal has put her best foot forward thus far in the progress of the school.

We have a new principal and it seems like she is interested about parent involvement, she seems easier to talk to compare to the last principal we had. Let's give her time to settle in.

Basically, it's the 6th graders setting bad example for the lowers grades. As a parent of this school I think the school should be k-5 grade maybe discipline might be easier to enforce.

This school has to many issues with discipline, children do not respect the teachers, and some teachers do not respect the children in the way they speak to them. Parents involvement is very poor, and safety and discipline is not longer a priority. The school used to be great, but it has come down to be very bad in the last 3 years.

To many conflicting rules and regulations, which only serves to undermind our children and seperate them into racial classfications. There are to many of the DOE polices that aren't followed with the protection and nurturing of our children and parents/guardians of our community. The lunch period starts at 9:40am ach day for the students that start school at 8am. Other issues which concerns our school are the proper supervision of the upper grades with alcoholic drinks, sexual misconduct, the inproper way of addressing our children, improper security that safe guards our children, lack of clean bathrooms for our children to use(including the smell of urine), ill equiped custodians with keeping the school's cafeteria, inexperienced school nurse that is unqualified to treat any child that has any issue of cuts,bruises and or broken limbs, and the closed door policy that has engaged our parents with the school administration.
