    "Principal sets up a toxic working environment in which the only incentive for good performance is that people will not be fired. High teacher turnover rate. Poor student attendance. Lack of parental involvement."

    "Principal has established a negative environment. -School lost more than 10 teachers/administrators, all of whom say that they left because they didn't like the principal or because she fired them, unfairly (that's about 25 percent of faculty). -Many students don't know she is the principal because she spends most of her time in her office. -Parents aren't involved in the school as is not a welcoming person. -60 student percent attendance. She has offered no strategy to address this issue. -Most of her feedback to faculty and staff is negative. She offers no incentive for good performance. -Overall negative school atmosphere, or, as many employees say, "toxic environment". -Under her leadership, the majority of the state evaluations of the school have been a "D" rating on a scale from A - F."

    "My son has been in this school for four years. For the first 2 years it proved to be an ok school. Nothing special as far as educating the children and the staff seem stretch to it's limit. This last year so far has prove very stressful. My son actually was told he was suspended for having chinese food but the crazy things was that the teacher who suspended him had the audacity to put his hands in his food and ate it. I was upset beyond belief. I was educated through to NYC school system and have never heard of such disrespecting, humiliating and digusting thing ever happening in my life. I spoke to the prinicipal and will let you what comes out of this. Also, I have contacted the NYC Board of Education. This school will not be around for long if they continuously ignore and employ the bottom of the barrel as teachers!"
