The teachers that work with my son are great and I believe they are passionate regarding their jobs in educating our students with special needs and for that I am very appreciative. Moreover, I like that they are reachable and return calls as well as respond via the communication notebook. I am really not that involved with the principal nor have I been involved with the parents as I work full time. Nonetheless I feel I have a good rapport with a few parents in my son's program and I am good with that.

my son went to this school till he was 7, it was terrible, upon our moving out of state , in my effort to obtain the school records, i mentioned to the school's director that my ambitions were to get my son mainstreamed,,he said " never, that will never happen",,excuse me !! how can someone in charge of a special needs school be so negative, practically give a child a life sentence !. !! well,,,,my son,,is now 17, and graduating high school,,,he was mainstreamed at 8, and has done wonderfull. and i was told in the beginning by his new school, that there was very little chance of him ever getting out of that program. i'm so glad we moved. this school was so disorganized.

The teachers are the best. They really understand the students and know each of them on an individual basis. There are so many programs to fit every child's scholastic need, whether it be in a classroom or in a park setting, working with their hands or working in a hospital setting. Although, I find the administrators (principal and asst. principals) are not easily approachable. When you call, you never can reach them on the first try so you must leave a message, then you might have to call back a few times because no-one calls you back. That is very frustrating, but the teachers are great.

I think the teachers are great with the students. They understand them and they don't intimidate them, they handle them with respect while they discipline them, as needed.

My son goes to PS/IS 25R at one of their off-site campuses. I find the staff and faculty to be very knowledgeable with the disorders our children have that a general ed public school cannot begin to understand. I've had my son in general ed for most of his school life and it was very hard on him emotionally. He had no friends and the teachers did not understand Asperger Syndrome and what behaviors go with it so they were powerless to teach their other students about tolerance. This school and their off-site campuses practice positive reinforcement and rewards to the students which boosts their self-esteem and worth. The academic program is the same as any other NYC Bd. of Ed school so these children are not being taught at a lower level, they are just understood better. I highly recommend this school.
