Mele&admin made IS 51 a v good neighborhood school. Staff & admin overall good have skills& smarts turning school around academically w a good school culture . School dealt well w the small portion of entitled kids& kid&parent clique complainers collaborating to blame teachers, others, whose parents didn’t hold their kids conduct,attitude responsible. Mr Mele& staff can see right through ppl & whats credible are v fair & utilize their skill sets with v good safety agents hopefully will be armed 1 day. Staff & dealt well w students disrupting &distracting class,mock-gossipers trying to get away w bullying,in others business,distracted so they act up { staff deal&keep those hyped types in check &refocus such types back on school}. Wished some less academic distracted hyper annoying students who had to cheat their way thru &distract the class were not put in honors or Arista {who knew what to say to get out of trouble coached by their parents} were put in a other classes not honors- some kids don’t have the discipline or interest making school about what or who they didn’t like,as if school revolves around them.The school is better as these type kids& parents graduate {it’s only some kids not many like this }move on to the next school &no longer a clique nor friends.Which is proof these try to be cool don’t follow rules packs students should be separated.Our schools & Communities { the ppl in communities are our community business}are much more positive &better without such types & cliques.Prayers for a continued successful school& thank you for your hard work. Not surprised to hear school is better year after year.

year.v good leadership. Admin goodhandle on issues,gd programs,kids safe. Law&order school. NY state ed should review better consequences for hyped kids, although in good hands w Mele. After Parkland Fla ,releasing & records on kids let community know it’s our business it effects us so we can see who have a hard time dealing w emotions, stoking negativity &won’t talk it out to resolve -potentially violent but IS 51 Dealt well w aggressive kids&parents well, who go after staff,blame when they r wrong or bad grades.DOE should have stricter rules for outspoken kids&parent complainers,blamers who r the problem but don’t like their conduct called out.Need better chancellor regs for those kids needing attention,jealous or competing problematic types easily offended, bullies, false accusers esp when their actions were caught-accusations fly&defensive parents dont get past this admin. There’s only so much ch an administration n can do & 51 admin do it well.wrt Arista need stricter character requirements not accepting menacing stir the pot kids to honors class, it’s not for troublemakers, some have unchecked mental health issues taking it out on others,not looking to resolve type kids or cliques trying to dominate w unstable unresolved personal issues & lack of coping skills,w anxiety or depression go to school to blow steam disrupt, some cheat their way thru school, {while some parents bragging how smart their kid is,not knowing what kid is really doing}minding others business. Maybe after Parkland will be stricter criteria’s from state & at risk kids or menancing behavior types will be in check further w a police presence.Students types don’t deserve top classes without good character &a more selective criteria. Schools shouldn’t accommodate entitled kids ,who dont right wrongs . 51 admin put such ppl in their place but ppl who didn’t meet good character criteria were w top kids.ESP these days Wish DOE enforced regulations on kids who run their mouth, argue , these types dont belong in top programs &continue blame,angry types w personal issues. Saving gracethese kids & siblings graduate go seperate wAys classes &programs are markedly improved positively. Thank u 51.

So far I am not having a good start. My daughter hasn't even started there yet and I have been talked down to. I have had some issues with her schedule. She is very creative and was dying to get into the creative design academy. When we found she didn't get in, and in fact they put her in media tech which she has no interest in whatsoever, she was disappointed to say the least. So, I decide to go up and try to get her in creative design.. which I feel if she is in a academy she loves it will engaged her in her academic studies. She has had a terrible time with common core and now has an IEP. So I go in to see what could be done. After some discussion, the secretary approaches me to say "ya know a women was in her with her disabled child who wishes she can go to school." Now.... As I wish all the children in the world were not sick... and I wish no parent to go through any of that, it breaks my heart... and I know so many other children are worse off... with that being said, should I not care about my healthy child? SHOULD I NOT TRY TO EASE HER YEAR WITH GIVING HER A POSITIVE BECAUSE SHE STRUGGLES SO???? Also, So inappropriate to say in front of my other 8 year old daughter. I was taken back by it. However, I said nothing and continued to place my daughter in a academy she was very interested in. Mr. Mele was very matter of fact... no super wonderful impression, although he got the job done, he couldn't have been anymore unsympathetic or bored. So this brings us to today. Since her classes were changed we have no schedule. So my daughter asked me if I can get her her schedule. Upon doing so I got a very annoyed women on the phone with a nasty reply "we are very busy here, your daughter will have to wait until the first day of school" and she hung up. Now as I know the thousands of calls they most likely get before the big day... I feel things like this should be dealt with professionalism because that is your job. If you cannot deal with the public don't choose a field that forces you to do so. I just pray for my daughter sake that this isn't a sign of more to come. As for me... I plan to stay far away of the uncaring staff. Also planning a back up plan of transfer. I am praying that the actual education and my daughter experience doesn't mirror the very pompous office staff.

I am so glad I decided to send my children to IS51. My oldest daughter begged me to take her to the open house 3 years ago and I was so impressed! Mr Mele has turned this school around. My daughter is now an 8th grader there and my youngest just entered 6th grade. The staff is fantastic. The assistant principals go above and beyond to know every student in their academy. I encourage all parents of incoming 6th graders to give this school a try! Dont go by a number..... It should be rated much higher than a four!

I love the staff at IS 51. Everyone including school safety, parent coordinator, School Assessment Team, principal, deans, teachers, paras, and PTA is always available, and willing to do their part in helping the students and school succeed. My son is very excited about the work he does in digital art. They have great academies that hold student interests and expectations of attendance and academics is a top priority. Keep up the good work.
