I agree Don't expect to get any help if your child needs and IEP or is having trouble with schoolwork. You are on your own! My son is in danger of getting left back and no one sounds interested enough to help.

...Cont Dismissal is also chaotic with all second grade classes being let out one door, one class at a time. The teacher that gets to the door first starts passing off kids one by one to parents and good luck trying to get near the door to get your child since all parents are squeezed up near the door

They need someone regulating dismissal as well/ Ms. Feliciano the parent coordinator is fabulous but she can only be in one place at a time, which is usually with the younger kids during dismissal and arrival. And forget after school and extracurricular activities. There are none!!! There is an after school study for kids who need extra help but even that is only for an extra 30 minutes. I am very unhappy this year and hope with this new principal there will be big changes. Read less
