Sometimes reputation precedes the actual experience. Since this school has been around for many years, the reputation of how the school had been in run in the past is why people feel it is a good school. Truth is, you must stay on top of your child's education, ensure they are learning concepts, not cramming information prior to testing, only to forget fundamentals later. Recently one of the key administrators have left the school, since then, any communication or expressed concerns with the Director is deemed confrontational, and her response is to kick your child out of the school; how convenient since they now rely on Universal Pre-K funding and dedicate their resources toward satisfying the criteria for that grant. #MsChungTheyNeedYou #MoneyIsTheRoot #MorePrivateSchoolOptions

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
The current administration lack good judgment. An example of this is when the school remained open this past snow storm (6-10") when Mayor DeBlasio had announced the closing for the public schools the day prior. My son was placed in the "gym" with about 10 other children and played for the few hours the school was in session. No lesson was taught, the teachers left after 30mins.


Develops character: Disagree


- a
The school can only develop strong character when children have something to model from. Administration is ill-equipped to handle conflict resolution.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Most of the teachers genuinely care about the quality education they are providing the children. However, the problem stems from "above" the teacher level. The teachers that speak up are later dismissed to be replaced by more "compliant" teachers.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Homework is supposed to be a reiteration of what was learned in the classroom. Often times, my children express they have not yet been taught the work assigned for homework. Therefore we are spending hours going over this work at home with the children.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The director and some staff are bullies.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
I wouldn't say that at all because they don't have patience with the children. They want their job to be easy!

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
"Director" has one goal in mind and that is to take your money. She has no relationship with the parents and seems to sit on a high horse, she needs to get back to reality!


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
How when they don't take the time to get to know your child and lack in patience!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teacher was very unprofessional and clueless! Her aide had more sense than her and was very professional.
