    "The principal is not very well rounded when it comes to common sense. She doesn't have the know how to take charge or show much competence in the leadership she was given. I can only hope the next principal will be able to repair the reputation of this school."

    "The school office secretary, principal and teacher of preschool set up a firewall. I tried to do an evaluation only to encounter resistance in an emergency case. The office secretary, "I'm just a secretary" the teacher has to talk to the principal before you can come. They have to micromanage everything and set up red tape. What are they worried about. Nonsense I will not go here."

    "I believe the Principal is impatient with the Students. Principal causes more stress to parents than should be if the principal would just involve the parents more."

    "This school is horrible. If you have an option, do not choose this school. First off The Principal is vicious woman who destroys everything she is involved in. This school used to be a community before she arrived. They used to have a wonderful music program which she single handledly destroyed. She insisted on using funds to put a dance studio in the building, hired a dance teacher and then excessed a professional dance teacher. The children don't even use the studio to dance in. The Drama program is a joke. The school had a gifted program which was taken away because she never fought for it. And not enough parents chose the schol to send their children to. The Assistant Principal yells at the children like an animal. The teachers are trapped. This woman has destroyed many peoples lives. I dont understand how the teachers that actually make a difference dont forge together and fight back..... Rest assured anyone that writes a good comment is either a teacher thatis afraid for her job or maybe Marsela herself.."

    "My daughter attended P.S. 212 from pre-K to the middle of 2nd grade. If you have a choice in sending your child here, DON"T!!!!!!! It was extremely unorganized, the teachers have absolutely no patience or control for their students. Her kindergarten teacher actually said that my daughter was too affectionate!! That is just disgusting, telling me that my 5 yr old was too LOVING??Isn't that CRAZY??? The kids couldn't even go outside for lunch!! They just would stick them in the lunchroom for the entire period and give them print outs to color! And don't let me forget the total lack of respect the students have for authority!! I am SO glad I was able to take my daughter OUT of this school, now she attends a school that she actually ENJOYS, and the teachers are PHENOMINAL!!! Not to mention they go outside every day!"
