    This school needs to only take kids from their zone. This school zone is a working class of people and the kids that are being bused to this school are well let's just say cut from a different cloth. They have very different backgrounds and values. The behavior of some of these children is of great concern. You want your children to go to school to learn not pick up bad habits. What ever happened to zoning. Long Island ensures their students are from Long Island not any of the other boroughs.

They don't get spelling words.She doing things she learned last year.I will be taking her out of her with in a month to put her some where else.

    This is by far the worst school for any kid of any age. Unfortunately many parents have no choice. They send their kids there for convenience reasons. The teachers are lazy. They dont care at all. There are no men teachers all women that sit around gossiping instead of caring for the kids. The kids run this school. The behavior of some of these kids are unlike anything you have ever seen and they get very minimal discipline from the teachers or the pricipal. There is constant fighting and cursing from the kids and the teachers pretend they dont hear. Terrible school.

    PS/IS138Q is great...My child has been going to this school for 7years and nothing bad or unsatisfactory things have happened to her. I truly recommend this school for for all children in grades 1-8.

    My six-year-old son started attending this school and for me it was alright. I was not impressed. For a full year I never even seen the principal. However this AY both my children will be in PS 138 and I expect excellence from the teachers and the principal. I'll make sure that this school is doing all that they can to become better than what they currently are. That starts will the Principal and it starts with me.

    This school is a bad school I recommend TYWLS in Jamacia Queens this schools puts no effort the principal isn't deciated and TYWLS is an all girl school which my daughter attends and it helps her reach her physical and potenial goals while having fun and not worrying about boys of how she looks and the uniforms is very cute and apporiate TYWLS is very strict and demanding unlike 138

    This school is a great school. they have alot of new kids though that cant really speak english but ther is an esl program for them. there is also a saturday progam for the gifted chidren but its finished in april. The school is also very crowded But the teachers and kids are all good and i cant think of any other place i would want to go.

    This school is horrible. The schoolwork does not meet the needs of the children. I am disappointed in the principal. She is not a leader. The teachers do not have a strong leader to follow. I only hear complaints about the school's education system. Many parents do not want there children attending this school. Unfortunately some of us do not have much of a choice. I do not understand why the education system is so poor in this neighborhood. Considering the homes value at $500K and up. I feel the education should equal the same. This is the first my children are attending and I have to get outside assistance to make sure they get the best education. The homework is not worth doing. I don't understand how casual the leadership is. It is very disturbing.

    needs more discipline to control students needs a lot of work but every thing else is okay I guess.

    PS 138 has consistently done well. However I see where the school is showing how well it can do under the leadership of Mrs. Andrews- Manning. Mrs. Andrews-Manning exhibits involvement with her teachers the students and parents. The students enjoys being around her and this is an excellent sign. This is a confidence that helps children to excel and I have truly seen my granddaughter move from nothing to accomplishing exactly what was necessary to earn her promotion. The teachers are excellent; very kind and caring group. PS 138Q is doing well. Keep up the good work.

    I have a 1st grader currently attending the school and things seem to be ok for the most part. So far I have not had any bad experiences and my daughter is progressing well. The new issue that I am not very comfortable with is that the school goes up to 8th grade. I really don't like the idea of the older children mingling around the younger ones. I have been near the school at dismissal and I have seen and heard the older children converse. If I was a young child I would not be very comfortable in that enviornment.

    Both of my children attend this school and I think this school has improved in the past few years. They have after-school programs which has enhanced my childrens' state exam scores. I do recommend this school. There needs to be more after school programs for the kids in 6 7 and 8th grade.

    I currently have children who attend this school and have witnessed many great changes over the last few years. Of course there is still room for improvement however I have been very pleased with the effort coming forth from the principal - she has a passion for excellence! As for the PTA - any school PTA is only as strong as the parents that are willing to back up the PTA executive board. More parental involvement is greatly needed there.....it's not enough to complain about the PTA leadership when some parents don't try to help support the PTA. I applaud the effort of the last PTA president. She took on the challenge for 2 consecutive years when there were no other parents that were willing to step out and try to accept the challenge on behalf of 'our children'. The school also has a wonderful Parent/Teacher Coordinator too!

    Not very impressed with this school at all. Security is minimal and the teachers grading system is puzzling. I also do not like the older children (this school now goes to grade 8) mingling so freely with the younger students. Hopefully there will be new PTA leadership soon.
