Paterson Charter School for Science & Technology 4

The school is very good I am not lying. I am a 7th grader in PCSST, the education is very good. All A s and 1 B, I love the programs that the school has. For example CCP, College Coaching Program, is a very good program. You must maintain a 3.5 gpa, this is a very good problem. The sports are very good, more variety. Basketball, soccer,softball, and baseball the teams are very good. You go on out of state trips, Connecticut, Turkey,Hati and etc. The school also has a Staff and Community barbecue each year, every thing is free fun and it's a really nice experience. Now those are the pros. The cons, the school is very very strict, you basically get a citation for everything. Also for middle schoolers you really can't do sport. The school only advise sports for high schoolers. I think they should give middle schoolers a little more variety of fun things to do. This entire year we the middle schoolers only went on 1 field trip. While the high schoolers went everywhere. I think that's really unfair. Now for my convulsive answer, you should enroll your kids in PCSST. It's a good school, but it has less variety.

I will like to thank all the staff at PCSST, with out them the school would fall apart. As much as the school is strict and disciplined they know how to keep the school together.

Most of the teachers at PCSST quit. I like the teachers that left the school. The only thing is the teachers are almost always absent and it's hard to learn.

They discipline the kids too much, the relationship gets untrustworthy. The school could work a little bit more.

I believe the principal is responsible for the school's culture and he should deservedly get the credit for all the things that are working right in the school.

The teachers I've dealt with are very effective. They communicate quickly when a student might be lagging behind or are not displaying strong study habits. The teachers will reach out to ensure the parent is aware.

Amount of homework: Just right

Given how busy some students are after school due to other activities, the amount of homework feels right.

I believe so. The curriculum alone is advanced enough to bring these skills out of students who really engage in their education.
