    "Our child has gone to PS 117 for three years and luckily has had outstanding teachers. The office staff are as nice as one would expect from a NYC public school, and the assistant principals are receptive to concerns. The staff people that oversee the lunch period and recess, however, are less than stellar. There are a couple that are kind and patient, but there are also some who are disgruntled and should not be working with children. Our child has had several incidents in which a staff person has physically pulled them with force, and on many occasions I have witnessed these same staff people scream at the children in an irate manner. In one case our child and several other students overheard a substitute (who happens to be a 5th grade teacher at the school) refer to the students as "roaches." There needs to be greater monitoring of the school's staff and perhaps an intensive training session in the basics of civility. A child's learning environment is supposed to be safe and welcoming not hostile and demoralizing."

    "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."
