  • Thank God today is the last day for my daughter at this horrible school. The teachers and staff are rude (one of the teachers told a chubby student to wear different clothing because no one wants to see his big fat belly), they have absolutely no class (another teacher comes to school cursing in Jamaican patois in front of the kids/exposing her cleavage/and visibly wearing no undergarments...yes, a teacher!), and the principal...well..she is a complete mess! She is retiring this year and during the graduation, instead of focusing on the kids, she turned the whole graduation into her retirement party (she had a whole powerpoint presentation done in her honor). My daughter tested for private school and they told me that because she attended PS68, she was not adequately prepared and now has to take a writing course this summer before starting middle school! Don't sent your child here!
