The principal, Mr. Bowman, has created a powerful school culture that serves as the lifeblood of everything that goes on in the school. With this as a foundation, the school has the capacity to build, grow and develop in successful ways.

The school encourages students to try until they succeed. They are taught that failure is a necessary step towards success. They learn that as long as they keep trying, they are on the right track.

While there are always people who choose to act disrespectfully, this behavior is discouraged throughout the school. Students are taught to show respect for their teachers, parents and fellow students so that they understand that this is a positive way to live.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

More and more, this school is shying away from traditional, punitive forms of discipline. While punitive consequences are still enforced to deter inappropriate behavior, restorative justice practices are employed to help create a change within students. In this way, students see that the staff genuinely care about the well-being of the students and this helps to disseminate compassion, caring and empathy throughout the school. Furthermore, these traits are eminent in the overall culture of the school.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

As part of the school culture, students and teachers are encouraged to "shout out" each other for good things they see. They are also encouraged to make public apologies when they have done things against the school culture. Staff and students know right from wrong and it is made very clear that in this building, we do things the right way.

First and foremost, this school has an incredible school culture which creates a safe and productive learning environment. For the 2014-2015 school year, this school had the #1 growth scores out of all New York City public schools. The school operates under the belief that all students are "born geniuses" and are capable of succeeding in life if they never give up and stay focused. This is really a wonderful school.

My small school allows the staff to get to know the students. They have a nice after school program and integrate technology with their curriculum.
