    "I had 3 children go through this school. 2 did okay, because they were excellent students with no issues. My third child did not fair well. If your child requires extra attention, this is not the school for you. If your child requires "down time", eg-recess, or break times, this is not the school for you. The teachers try their best, but they do not receive adequate support from the administration. The principal and her assistant principal, are more than happy to make suggestions to parents, but are not willing to back them up at CSE meetings. The school psychologist and guidance counselor a are a joke!"

    "If you value recess, then P.S 50 is not for you. Your child might be the lucky one, if his/her class is given a pitiful 15 minutes of recess once a week. The administration claims this is due to being understaffed, and they do not have money in the budget to hire someone to watch your child. Your child will just have to deal with the pent up energy, and try not to let the restlessness affect their concentration in class. It seems the admin. is more concerned about their union contracts rather then what is best for you child. My child is in the 1st grade G&T class this year. There is a much greater emphasis on reading/writing in this school. Math & Science assignments are NOT challenging at all. During the G&T open house the kids showcased thier violin skills. Then violin lessons were cut from the budget. There is not much difference, between G&T and the regular curriculum If you do decide to send your child to this school, at least get involved with the PTA (seems to be the only avenue) inorder to fight for improvements, otherwise settle for an average education. Good Luck to you!"

    "I have 2 daughters in the G&T program at PS 50 and I am very happy with the education that they have received so far. Both of my daughter's teachers have been excellent educators and truly care about their students' academic achievements, as well as their overall well-being. Whenever I need to address an issue/concern with either teacher, I find that they are very responsive and am satisfied with their response. My only wish is that they bring back their drama program."

    "This school is fabulous! My child was in the first grade G & T class and received a wonderful education. The class was large, but was taught by a wonderful, caring teacher. I was amazed by the rigorous instruction and how much my child learned this year. I'm thrilled my child attends this school and I'm so grateful to have had such a wonderful, dedicated teacher this year."
