    "My children attended this school from k-3 grade. During their time there we experienced rude, violent and disrespectful children and teachers who could not handle them. You always felt like you were intruding when you came to visit. Never felt welcomed and the principal never smiled or even greeted parents when she saw them. Parents were never really kept in the loop as far as their child's progress was concerned.Don't even get me started on the office staff. The woman in charge of admin. Mrs. "H" has been there forever and seems very bothered by her job and the same goes for the secretary Mrs. "S". The teachers and the lunch ladies yelled at the kids. I was so happy when we relocated and left that God awful school. The assistant principal Mrs."I" is the best thing to ever happen tot hat school. She's the only person that really seemed to care."

    "I agree with the last post the reception from the staff is cold. It doesn't seem as if the school cares about the poor ratings they receive because if they did then maybe the staff would try to do a better job in bring up the schools rating . It's Ashamed the staff don't seem to care about the child at the school. More parents need to get involved in how this school is effecting the area in which we leave due to its poor rating and us as parents need to file complaints with the district."

    "This school is AWFUL!! I'm very sad and worried about my son's education. After talking to the principal and and my son's teacher about all my concerns, I was told that it is the not their fault but the NY governors.. SMH!! They just do not care. Homework is checked ones per week because according to the teacher she does not have enough time to do it every day.The school staff at the general office is very rude and unprofeccional as well. Thinking it was me being crazy, I asked some of the parents about their thoughts about this school and I was not surprise to find out most of them were very unhappy but did not know what to do. lastly, I would said that the principal need to take pride of what she does and work hard to improve PS 117. Being a school principal, I believe is a very hard job that requires someone with strong leadership skills, and a passion towards education. Because she does not have this skills, she should just let someone else take her position. This review is not about being hateful but to do something against the LACK of leadership, organization, professionalism and careless attitude towards education this school displays."
