I have to agree with the parent about the bullying. I too am a teacher and my daughter has been repeatedly bullied by the same kids and now it is getting worse after I tried to intervene. The students are not allowed to talk during lunch and spend half the time watching movies inside the auditorium again not allowed to talk. I also have a younger child who has had mediocre teachers at best. Seriously thinking about puling the girls and trying to get them in a different school.

As a teacher myself, I am appalled on how PS 69 handles bullying. My child while in the lunch school yard or attending the after school program on several occasions my child has been the recipient of such situations. The teachers / school aids stand around B/S(talking) not paying attention to the most important things =our children's safety.

My kids went through the G&T program and like all schools, the teachers are hit or miss. My younger daughter is entering the 3rd grade coming September, and I can only rave about Mrs. Ritzer, her second grade teacher. My older child also had Mrs. Ritzer for third grade, and both kids gained so much from her. For the other teachers, I can only say "meh", but Mrs. R was structured, yet fun, and the kids learned so much from her. I'm not too keen on the principal and her lack of communication unless you are one of her "favorites," which I learned quickly I am not, as she never answered any of my questions or got back to me when I wrote to her. If anyone can give me tips on how I can be a favorite, please let me know. Overall, I think the principal is a go-getter, so on the school level, I guess she does a decent job getting funding. But on the individual level, again, she is a "meh." Kudos to the parent-coordinator who does a much better job.

My child had a good experience at this school. Most of the teachers were just great, except for one who was mean and intimidating. Also the school doesn't let the kids play outside even in warm, but not hot weather. The Board of Education mandated this year that children be allowed out in the cooler weather with coats, but the principal did not follow that mandate this year. The kids need to get more exercise as gym is only once a week. Also, one of the Vice Principals is unfair and i quick to hold your child accountable on something without knowing all the facts. And has lied to me about something as well. Other than that, the school is a good school, but their ratings have not been great as to scores with the students, not sure if that sheds light on how they are being taught.

At PS 69 you'll find a wonderful and loving Staff!!! People who not only care about the education our children are getting but people who also care about our children's emotional well being. The teachers are caring people who provide a terrific educational foundation for the years to come. I am very lucky to be able to send my child to this school which is not her zoned school. PS 69 is a top notch public school. The only downfall is that parking at this school is horrible but well worth the trouble.

My son is in the 1st grade and I am very satisfied with this school. My son's teacher's are on top of everything. If I send in a note, I always receive an answer that day. As far as the principal she is very involved, she actually greets the children in the morning. When I went to school the principal was never around. If your children are zoned for this school you will have no worries.
