My children studied there, I can tell the truth on what bullying is not properly handled in that school, both teacher and principal dismissed a permanently verbal bullying to my daughter and the only way I stopped was when I call the department of education and sent my complaint, they sent an inspector and he make this incident pertinent to the principal. Whenever you have a bullying problem there and they don t pay attention to you, please call the department of ed or send them a letter as I did, they will solve it.

My wife and I are both at a loss as to how this wonderful school only gets a 4 out of 10. I have three children in this school and we are blessed to have teachers and staff who care so much about our children. The parent/teacher communication has been excellent, ANY incidents involving injury or even potential bullying is immediately handled appropriately and we are notified within minutes of the incident. The Principal, Miss Maffeo is the MOST dedicated educator/administrator in the NYC public school system. She is there early, stays late, knows all the children by name and is always accessible And most importantly, she genuinely CARES. I often tell people that I can't believe that this education is FREE. I would gladly pay for a school of this caliber. Kevin, Kayla and Asleigh's parents.

I LOVE PS 46. I wish it went up to the 8th grade. The staff is amazing. Even the custodians know my son's name. My son is an excellent student and I thank his teachers and principal and assistant staff for that. Ms. Maffeo is a very fair and loving principal with an open door policy. Great Parent Coordinator, Mrs. Cottone. I want to say Thank you to the entire staff.

I grew up in this area and went to school here. Now my son goes here, the School is not the same.I think they should focus more on the bulling with the kids. There are alot of fights that the teachers seem to ignore!Also, it's hard to focus in a class that is mixed with different levels of learning. My son is a good student,in spite of all the distractions in his class. The teachers tell the good kids too try too get along with the kids that have bad behavior and don't care about the good children who try their best. The school needs to put more pressure on the parents of the misbehaved children, it seems to me they don't care what their kids are doing and the School let's them get away with it. I don't recommend sending your children. my son graduates this year. Thank God!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
