Ps 8 Issac Varian Ratings & Reviews

July 10, 2018 Submitted by a parent
It is a great school with lots to offer. Parents will always get support at this school. I recommend this school, but advise parents to advocate for their children and always ask questions and expect more from the adults than from the children.

My son is a special needs child. The teachers have been mean to him for things that have been out of his control. I set up a meeting with the principal to speak of his needs to then have the assistant principal throw in my face a problem I had with a teacher 2 years prior. The teacher she was referring to useto make my son cry at dismissal when he heard her complain about him. I asked her not to tell me things infront of him but she did it anyway. Now he's in a ict class and I can't even get the teacher to talk with me. The principal doesn't care about my son and some of the teachers there don't care. I've heard teachers say " I will not tie your children's shoelaces, buy them Velcro". Really? I guess it's better to have a child fall and get injured. This school treats the children horribly and the parents even worse. The staff is rude. No "good mornings" and if you say thank you they do not respond. There are good teachers in this school but there are also bad ones and the principal and assistant principals always side with the teachers no matter what they do. I had a meeting with a teacher and the principal because the teacher wasn't helping me to bring up my sons reading and math level. I asked for help and she would blow me off, then she lied in the meeting to cover herself. Horrible people!

From my perspective,I feel that p.s.8 Isaac varian Briggs academy school is rated 5/5 for me because it has a great gymnasium,adutorium and great classrooms that rut a lot. The teachers there are also very good ones because they have advanced classes with a lot of things which helps them teach better and be more prepared. All the teachers there are very polite and get the kids to work as hard as they can. I am a student at that school but I know it's like this because I've had siblings who went to this school before me. There is also a very good opportunity for kids to exercise even though there sometimes isn't gym everyday. When there is good weather, after lunch,every single class goes out to recess which is playing outside and there is also a lot of space to roam around. This is why I certainly adore and admire Public School 8(Bronx).

I went to this school as a child, my daughter currently attends and is in the third grade. Although the teachers who taught me are all gone, their newer younger teachers are wonderful. The staff is always willing to help out and is very knowledgeable. My only complaint is that the morning entrance for the 1-5 grade students should perhaps be changed having five different grade levels going in through one door in the morning is brutal. I have complained many times to the main office and principal to no avail.

I graduated from P.S.8 in 2005. I spent 5 years there. When I first got there I barely understood any teachers I had from kindergarden and 1st grade since Albanian was my 1st language. I was in jeopardy of repeating kindergarden but the old school was too crowded and space finally opened up at PS8. !st grade was also a fail but things took a turn for the better when I was placed in Ms. Lopano's 2nd grade class. I got the pleasure of sticking with the same teacher for two years who cared and taught me english, math, social studies, and science for two years. She definitely tried to make it interesting but she got to bond with each child and worked with us independently. With her help I was able to switch from her 4th grade class into the honors class. (I cried the day I found out Ms. Lopano would no longer be my teacher because I had grown so attached.) She set me for life and without her I don't know how I would've gotten to where I am today. I'm graduating from high school in a month and going to attend college in the fall. Thank you so much Ms. Lopano & P.S.8, you changed my life! With love, Filomena
