MS 53Q: Doing Just Fine, Thank You
We, the PTA Executive Board members of Brian Piccolo MS 53Q demand that Howard Schwach stop slandering the school with his unsubstantiated information.
Schwach, on many occasions has given false information to the Far Rockaway peninsula community regarding Brian Piccolo Middle School. This school, for the past five years, has been making tremendous progress under the leadership of Principal Claude Monereau.
Indeed, last school year, in the Daily News, this school was placed as one of the most improved schools throughout Queens. Yet, Schwach, in his article dated Friday, September 18, stated that MS 53Q is one of the most dangerous and failing schools in the district.
As far as we know, this school is not a dangerous school, as it is not listed as an Impact school and it is one of the most improved schools according to the New York City Department of Education.
