    the children are so bad just like ps 155 and i moved my son from here to 155 and now he's in jhs 217q

    Administration is genuinely concerned about personal development.

    - Academic programs are of basic worldwide standard (Language Math Social-Studies Science History) and improving. Also uniforms required; meals provided (qualification); security guard on post; computers in classroom but can be updated like Dell's pilot laptop programs for rural areas. - Basic extra-curricular programs like some music art dance PE and some after school programs. The PTA hope to implement some additional programs that have worked well in other schools. - Parent involvement is disappointing. However from my research this is a nationwide epidemic! People have become too entrenched in the rat race and cannot or don't want to make time for their child's education. Nevertheless we are working diligently to attract parent participation.
