The school staff treats minority children as if they do not belong there. My child came home everyday telling me she didn't understand why the teacher helped everyone else except her or didn't give her a cupcake during a kids birthday party or never called on her when she raised her hand or Didn't give her a prize when everyone else got one. It is sad because this is a well behaved child who should never have to go through this type of discrimination at such a young age. Then when I complained about it the principal began to question why my child was late to school instead of addressing the issue.
With increased parent participation on the PTA and new principal, PSMS 200 Q has been advancing and thriving. Even with the additional challenges of the new common core curriculum, teachers continue to make every effort to attend to the needs of each student. Everyone works together as one unit, including the custodian, lunch assistant staff, security, after-school, and parks dept attendants. They truly care about the children. I would recommend any parent to take their child to PSMS 200 Q. Our motto "Learner's today, leader's tomorrow" is an opportunity for each student to be all that they dream they can be. God bless!
I think the school has its good and bad points. For the most part, the teachers seem to really care about the students. Even the school's favorite substitute teachers treat the students as if they were part of their own class. One substitute went above and beyond for my child. I wish she was a regular teacher there. Ialso wish the school had more after school events. Maybe sporting events or even an arts and crafts class.
