  • went to this school as a child, Feminist teachers made the me and the other boys in the class feel like crap. My teachers ranged from insane to crazy except my 4th grade teacher miss gill.Be prepared for teachers to think you're retarded because you can't speak English.

  • Ok by the parent that wrote down here. PS246 is the best school and i'm not just saying it because I went there or anything. And there were not kids humping or kissing. The school is great. The teachers are nice. The problem is some people would start problem with the kids because that kid would talk about them. Ok sure there were fights in the school but doesn't mean it was bad. Its the students not the school or teachers. And the teachers were and are great people. I learned alot with Ms. Sanderson, Ms.Wolff, Ms.Diaz and Mr.Rosario and Ms.Leee
