My son has improved with his work so much since being in this school. I see a real difference in his attitude towards school. He loves the school. I think it is a great school. The teachers try their best to help the students that need extra help.

This school is no good.... If something happens to your child outside or inside the school that involves other students at the school no one will help or report it. Even if the police has to get involved the Principal and most of the staff will turn their back and they will not help. If you want your child to go to a safe school please DONT SEND THEM HERE.

Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
