    I really like p.s 46. I had an older child there now I have a 5th grader. My kids and I had a great experience there I find the teachers assistant principle and principle to be very helpful. My kids so far had amazing teachers and I really trust these teachers with my children my kids so far are doing well and if they ever ask for help they always get it from their teachers. When ever I entered this school their are always smiling faces and everyone try their best to help you out. I did not for a second regret I sent my kids to this school. I love this school and my kids also loved this school. I pray that my kids will continue on the path they are on and I must thank p.s 46 for helping to raise my kids.

    I need to find a good school which puts care and concern of treatment to students as a main issue. My child attends p.s. i.s. 54 the worst school I have ever experienced having one of my children attend. I am in district 10 zip code 10458. I don't want to pull him out in the middle of the year although it might come to that. I need info on a good school in the Bronx if their is such a thing. thank u

    This school is the worst. Children run the school more often then the administrators. Safety seems to be a real issue here and there is a lack of discipline for any kind of inappropriate or unsafe behavior. If your child actually likes school and learning this is not the place to be.

    Ps 46 is a great school. My children love this school.I love it when my son comes home and tell me beautiful stories about his teachers principal and class. Everyone there is happy and it's a great thing to watch.
