This was a great litlle neiborhood school up until administration changed. Ms Glenn made this a great school and now Ms Kerssandra Cox has ruined it. The kids run all over the place fighting and she does nothing to help. She sits in her office all day and rarely returns parents calls. The staff even complains about her. Someone needs to fire Cox!
My son started this school in September 2014, for second grade. The best thing I can say about this school is that I am happy my son will not return for third grade. From the teachers to the principal, there is no direction or organization. The school is a complete mess, the behaviour of these children is the worst I have seen. There are a few teachers that are an exception but only a handful. It is chaos in the morning with kids throwing their bookbags at other students, cursing at eachother, hitting and pushing. All the while the teachers and para's stand around and do nothing. My son has changed a little and has been bullied. Thanks to the guidance counselor the situation was fixed. Having had a meeting with the principal (Mrs. Cox), I dont even know how she is able to keep her job. The teachers don't respect her and her presence is non-existent. I didn't know who she was until 3 months into the school year. The schools needs work! New teachers who actually care about the growth of these children. A new principal that commands respect and has new ideas to turn the school around. All you have to do is stand in the hallways in the morning and see how damaged the school is.
P.S.80 is a GREAT SCHOOL!! I have a 17 year old son,15 year old daughter and a 9 year old daughter that all attended this school.The teachers are very concerned about the children's education.I have never known of any unsafe or violent situations there.I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in having there child educated correctly.
