The teachers at PS32 are outstanding. Very wonderful staff. However, the principal is awful.

I attended the school when it first opened I had Mrs. Coppola for 3rd and 4th grade she was an amazing teacher. It's a great School I have nothing but the fondest memories...

This school has many wonderful caring teachers. The administration and leadership are poor role models for the children. Bullying policies not enforced. Very little involvement from the Principal.
