Our Insights

PS 102 Joseph O. Loretan closed in 2014 after years of sub-par performance. It was replaced by two small schools in the building: PS 531 and PS 536 which opened in 2011.

In 2010, only 25 percent of students were on grade level in English language arts (ELA), and only 28 percent were on grade level in math. Parents and community members expressed concerns about poor performance, a lack of communication between the school and families and serious safety problems. In February 2011 the Panel for Education Policy approved the Department of Education's proposal to phase out the school saying the school would be unable to improve.(Pamela Wheaton, June 2014)
