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.
