Ps 246 Poe Center Ratings & Reviews

My boys just started the school year here and everything has been unpleasant. Everyone is rude and hardly pay attention to you when you are trying to ask questions of trying to get information. My boys are in kindergarten and the first day of school they didn't get lunch. I couldn't believe this! I went to speak to whom ever was in charge of the lunchroom and no one could give me a straight answer. But, that wasn't the worst part. The three people I spoke with refusely denied that it occurred. They seemed outraged and bothered with me even suggesting that. My sons were in tears because they were so hungry. This is a new school, new people. They didn't know they had to form a line to get lunch. In their preschool they would sit in the table and the food would be served to them. So they just sat there. The infuriating thing about this all is that no one noticed this occurrence. Then I find out that the lunchroom is under staffed. So instead of apologizing to my sons and me they made us feel as we were making this up. No one apologized to us! Only my kids teachers....when this wasn't even their fault. The drop off is a circus. All the parents complain about this. They have a different entrance almost everyday. One of my sons was crying today "They always change this here. I'm scared". This is why I decided to write this review. They get rushed in and pushed in because "we are going to be late". The kids are all scared and confused mine included. It's just very chaotic for the children. How are they suppose to feel secure when they don't have routines set up for them. Also, parents can't come into the school. I have yet to see my kids classrooms. Which makes me uneasy. Why don't they want parents to come into the school? What is it they don't want us to see? They raise their voices at you if you even cross the entrance. It's just very weird and I'm really concerned. If you are going to send your child here, don't! It's really shady.

The school is not the problem, the problem is the way how the parents help their child's to behave and to study, because some parents they think the school have to do the all learning to the kids but they are wrong, i like the school and I like the teachers too, just the city need to help with resources because we need more people to control the lunch time in special to the little ones.

This is in response to the post done in May 2, 2009. I have not seen any performances every month. It seems we talk about two entirely different schools. Ms. Miller seems to yes want to better the school but is not quite there yet. The after-school programs drive most of the children nuts. A lot of them do not like it. They need activities other than only school work. I am not saying that that is not needed but the children do need other things to do. I have also never witnessed a 'Parent-Community Night' if you are refering to the PTA Meetings they are not that great. It is very unorganized. The school still needs improvement!!

The school has improved incredibly under the leadership of Mrs. Miller. She has put in a multi-million dollar playground for the students. She has implemented a multitude of Parent-Community Nights that the teachers actively participate, along with the community. Art, gym, music, monthly performances by grades, acting classes, dance classes, along with after-school programs. I could go on and on! Neglectful teachers no longer work at this school. Her attitude towards her position is 'Children First'. She treats all parents, children, teachers, support staff, and custodians with immense respect. I have read the previous reviews and I notice that they were written under the tenure of a different Principal. I'm so sorry for those other people's experiences. I only wish that their children could experience PS 246 now. It is a happy place to be!

Since moving back to New York, I'm must say this is the worst public school I have enrolled my child in. This will be my son's first and last semester in this school. I am sending him to another school. I have never seen such neglect towards education in the classroom. The students never have homework, or if they do it's only one page; then the teacher is absent the next day. Get it together people.
