    "PS 72 is not efficient .Ms.Colon is nice and outgoing but that has NOTHING to do with the education provided in this school. They have poor reading and Math scores. They focus on school attendance and state test scores much more than genuinely providing children with knowledge and fundamental skills needed for advancement. they have a weak Science and Social Studies curriculum poor technology (kids play games the entire computer period) my kid can't spell as well as she should be & this seems to be ok with the district and school system,as long as they pass the state test everything is ok according to them. Many teachers curse,I have reported 2 this year alone! I wish parents would identify the learning gap this school or should I say the curricula being taught to our student in this school or perhaps many others, they are failing to I've them a proper education and then they blame it on parent involvement which is not the entire problem,a shame so many parents are oblivious and can only identify with the principal being nice . Unfortunately I can not afford private or catholic school tuition."

    "II had all 4 of my children in this school and when it was considered an A School ; with my last child and ever since Colon took over the school fell off.. she has her preferences. She will not consider other children and they have faculty clicks. MY CHILD HAS 100 % attendence. And she has never been awarded .. they have their priorities mix up.. change the way the school is... or change the school altoghter"

My son is in the fourth grade now and my daughter is attending The Urban Academy of Civic Engagement in the 8th grade. I can truly say the teachers and the staff in P.S.72 and also the prinicipal Ms, Colon have been very understanding and very helpful in my childrens years at this school. There teachers so happen to be very very helpful and understanding to my kids needs."
