My child attends this school and I am pretty pleased with her experience. The teacher makes sure that she learns her materials. It is in a safe neighborhood. The free morning test prep along with free breakfast provided is great.
My son has been attending PS 107 starting pre-K, K, and now in first grade. The principal and teachers care for the students education. They put the effort day in and day out to educate our children. Most of the teachers are parents themselves and do understand the needs of our children. The principal and most teachers refer to our kids as "their kids". The school is diverse in population and sometimes parents from non english speaking families have a difficult time in following the purpose of the PS 107 education agenda. I am a professional, college graduate with with a well rounded view of world events. I believe PS 107 is a great place for our children to learn. Parents need to participate in school events and encourage their kids to do well in school because as Ronnie says "you don't get a second chance to raise your child". We all want whats best for our kids and so does the staff at PS 107.
I don't think a school is goodif it fforces it's students to come to test prep at 7am, they miss breakfast, they are tired and can't concentrate, the school does not care about the kids or what the parents think, they are in the process of adding another school into this crowded one without the care of anyone but the money. This is not the school for your kid. Only 1/3 kids passed common core.
Some teachers are good, but some teachers are VERY bad. my sons had very bad teachers when they were kindergarten and 1st grade. those women were yelling at kids, interruptint them, and only wanted to hear what they wanted. kids were terrified and did not talk much in the classroom. it was like a boot camp or juvinile facility. they picked 1 or two very obedient and smart kids, name them as "star students" and give all the good roles and leader roles to them. other kids were treated just like "rest of the class" and given no attention at all. the new principal is just busy to run the school by the book and create all the rules and regulations to make the business easier for the administrators, and does not look like she cares the quality of life of the kids in her school. This school is severly overated, maybe by the realtors who want to sell houses around this school with high price. but, please, don't expect much. oh, did I mention about the classrooms with no AC or fan?
