    "I am a parent of 3 children who have attended PS 232. Two have gone on to high school and college. The staff at PS 232 are exceptional beginning with Mrs. Josephson the principal. Her primary goal is the best education for all the students in her school. She tries to remain on neutral ground both with the faculty and the parents. My children have had a good education for their primary and middle school years. She also has a very competent staff. Mrs. Leibman Asst. Principal, Mr. Collins, Asst. Principal and Ms. Black, Guidance Cons. The Teachers give every child the fundamental tools to learning and succeeding in their future. It is up to the individual child and their family to continue on to a road of success. Thank you faculty of PS 232."

    "I am a parent of a 5th grader and a 2nd grader in P.S 232. My older son is in the gifted class. He will be leaving and going to The Scholar's Academy. I would like to thank Ms Josephson the principal,Ms Leibman, Ms DeClemente, Ms Turner, Ms Adams, Ms Stetina and not forgetting Ms Wilenski for the wonderful job you guys have done. After six years it feels like we are one big happy family. Just found out some of the teachers will not be coming back in September, I feel like I'm losing a member of my family. My younger child will still be in the school. I am so thankful for what this school has given and continues to give not only my children but other students as well. THANK YOU P. S 232, you are greatly appreciated."

    "As a parent and former student I am so grateful to be part of such a loving and caring school. The teachers we have had over the past years have been nothing but caring. My son had surgery on his hand And his teacher purchased him special pencils make his writing more comfortable. During the summer she emailed him about a book she thought he would enjoy proof that even during vacation teachers still care and work. This year with the stress of state testing both of my children came home with letters of encouragement and praise. It amazes me that with over 1000 students the principals know each and every one. Once a month she has a Breakfast and invited parents to discuss matters and keep them informed it's so warm and welcoming. Numerous meetings our principal has stated that they are teaching our children for a career not a job as a parent this is the kind of education I want for my child's success and future. I am always kept Informed of my child's progress and they are always given extra help in the areas needed. They are receiving the best possible education from the most loving caring staff and I'm proud my children are part of the 232 family."

    "My children are both in the upper grades at 232. I do agree that the principal is incompetent but I must say the assistant principals do as much as they can to help the children. In the younger grades the assistant principal actually cares for the children. I do believe that having personal friends teach in the school has caused the principals credibility to decrease. Those teachers are also the most uncaring teachers my children have had so far. The school itself has exceptional teachers who do go above and beyond. This has nothing to do with the principal."

    "MY child attends this school. Education is a very important gift I can give to my child. The principal of this school is providing and exceptional experience for my child. This gift of learning is not only given in academic areas but in enrichment activities as well. The professionalism of all staff in the building is excellent and represent the best in the city. As the bumper sticker says I am a proud parent of a student at PS 232. This principal helps these children learn and adds programs to assist children that are struggling and truly wants her students to succeed. The principal and staff are always available an address concerns of parents thoroughly. I feel this school is giving my child the foundations to enjoy learning and to want to continue to learn through the years. I would like to thank PS 232 for being a part of my child's life. I am so glad that I am able to send my child to this neighborhood school."
