    My son has been attending this school since kindergarten he is now in 1st grade and we have had issues with bullying- he has come home with ripped clothes and bruises. I am glad this school is phasing out; it gives kids a chance to transfer out without being in a body bag first. There seems to be slow improvement being made but the teachers in the lower grades have no control over the kids. It's a zoo. The administration isn't that bad they seems willing to assist but again slow progress is being made. The grade this school received is a F thank God it's phasing out and hopefully the replacement school develops a strong structure for the kids they need it.

I MUST SAY ONE THING I AM SO HAPPY MY CHILD WILL NO LONGER ATTEND THIS CARELESS SCHOOL.....GOODBYE PS/IS73 WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE TO SUFFER....

    My 2 children started attending this school because we lived in the area. After 2 year's of no after school programs no gifted programs an extended program that seemed like it just kept kids until the time was up(vs. Actually giving the kids the help they needed) and various complaints to school officials who seemed like they could care less. I will be moving my kids to a community where the principal care's & take's pride enough in his/her school to fight for after school programs more educational trips better teacher's and a better enviroment where my kids feel safe at all times.Its sad that we have to look to another district/communty to give our children the proper education support and love that they derserve but both my kids have test scores above the average percentile and i would be cheating them out a better education if i didnt!
