  • Letting my Son attending this school # 206 were the worst days of his life and my life as his mother. This summer this school did not want to take my child, when they saw that my child require some special services and they said: “There is no space for your child in our school” I still remember her skeptically-rude smile. The administration of this school were very rude and uncaring When I said that I am going to solve this problem with the department of education they accepted my child, but only in a month I received the calls from the police and from social workers… I was trying to find out the educational progress of my child, but they did not want to make any appointments with me. A couple of times I was trying to contact teachers and administration about my son, but they refused to have any conversations with me. They were just saying that everything is ok. . And at the same time, for no reason, they were gathering provocative information on my son. At the same time I received the call from social workers that this school is complaining on me. Latter on they called the police on me that came at 12:00 pm and scared my child. It seems that to call the police and social workers on parents is easier for this school than to pay for professionals services … . . . Moreover they were making my sick son to attend the school, even if I brought doctor’s notes, moreover they kept losing them all the time!!! If your child is talented from the birth than this school is going to open all doors for you… but if the child needs something of support, then here he is going to face a lot of problems from the administration and teachers. Administration of this school does not think how to help the child, they just think about the status of their school. It would be very nice if they thought differently. Why does this school have to spend any money for the kids well being!? Then parents are going to be left with one thing - to leave the school. And this school is going to keep their status.

  • The school is excellent. I have had 6 children who received their education beginning in kindergarten. The school provided them with knowledge they needed to advance to higher eduication. Two have graduated college, 3 aere now in college and 1 still at the school. I have found the teachers to be overly helpful. At one point a teacher called hom,e prior to a statewide test to remind my daughter to remember to wear her glasses to school the next day. This showed that the teacher showed concern espec ially becauswe he knew the importance of the exam and wanted his pupil to succeed. They have has some turn over of Princiupals, howeever the transition was usually smooth. The safety staff are also very courteous. If there are behind the scenes squabble, the parebnts and sgtudents would never know because of the camraderie the staff demonstrate.

  • some of the teachers were really helpful and nice. But most others were ridiculous, unfair, mean, strict, had favorites, and even picked on students. Most teachers didn't care. they didn't talk to you, and they didn't care whether you failed or passed. they gave you the work and gave it back, graded. The lunches taste like plastic and the use of "lunch aides" is ridiculous as they are still used in i.s.206. as if five years of this isn't enough, I'm still stuff in the never ending pit of misery for three more.
