Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
July 27, 2015
This school is horrible... the computers aren't in good condition (mostly broken) and the teachers are rude. They pile a lot of work at once, and expect you to do it in 1 week. It truly isn't a middle school, because you only have 1 class... and the classes are very small. Also, you don't even have lockers, you have 2 cubbies, 1 in the classroom and one in the hallway (Very small though). You can't even decorate them like a locker. Most kids that go here are rude, and very cliquey. The teachers don't help with the drama that goes on and don't try to stop it. With academics, you have to take the NYS Tests... even though you don't get graded on them. It's horrible. You also have a bunch of finals in 6, 7 and 8th grade plus the NYS Testing if you're in Regents. For field trips, you have to ride in parents and teacher's cars for field trips, no bus. They have NO extracurricular activities for the older kids but CYO basketball. They should add more sports and clubs like Art Club, and softball.

Overal the school is great but i think they should do a little better work on the teacher picks. Hopefully some nicer.

This school has been a wonderful experience for my three children. It is very much like an extended family.
