Overall, Ms 127 is a great school. So far, i'm having a lot of fun here. There's a lot of great teachers. There are fun afterschool activities and saturday academy. You also get rewarded at the end of each marking period when you get honors which is 80 and up. I think that this school really respects students and teachers. It has a great learning comunity. The only thing that i don't think is that decent are the bathrooms. The bathrooms are not really clean and they smell bad. But i guess they will do something about it. But if you're looking for a school you should definitely choose Ms 127. I'm a student here and i love it!

Develops character: Strongly agree

i feel this way because the school is strict about students giving honesty to protest themselves out there, makes them show integrity and makes it fair for students so they can pass the tests and classes

I am a student at M.S. 127 and I feel like whether or not you do well depends on you. Many ppl r saying how their kids aren't learning anything. What I have to say about that: YOUR child chose the wrong crowd. It has nothing to do with the school. And as far as i know, NO teachers curse at the students. Many teachers, such as Ms. Durrant, will be on ur child's case till he/she does well. Which is a good thing. Now tell me, is she doing this only for her paycheck? NO! She doesn't have to do this for ur child, yet she still does. Also, two years ago, 16 students got into specialized hs and last year 11 got in. The teachers try their best to ensure a brighter future for the students.

I think this is the worst school....I cheek my son bag everyday to see what has he leaned for the day just like i do for my other children. in this school they don't teach anything. i think the teaches are so under educated and don't know how to talk with the kids. i have seen them cursing at them. they don't get the ready for state exams. there gangs and drugs in the school. and it seen like on one there care about the kid. they just care about there pay cheek. if you want your child to be successful do not send them to this school. i can't until i don't have to deal with this school again

i am currently going to this school now, horrible. this year is the worst i am constantly picked on its sad. its this kid in class who always yells and screams in class and i can't focus. the only teacher i like is ms.v my extended day teacher. i have never failed this bad. a week ago this boy called me names and i refused to go to school th next day but i couldn't i missed to many days. now i wish i was sick so i don't have to go to school.

I would like to agree with the parent's comment below. The students' scores are very low. About 70% of the grades of the students are below average. Many of the teachers lower the grades to help the students pass. At the end, students are not prepared for high school. I would not recommend this school any parents who wants to enroll their child to this school. Comments below maybe from students who felt that the teachers were great which makes a great school. However, from a parents point of view, if your child's grades are not to standard. I would suggest going to a school where they can be challenged rigorously. You will not find it at this school.

I am a current student at this great school. I must say that I am very lucky to be a student at this wonderful school. The main reason why, is because the teachers believe in you and never give up. I would also recommend this school because of its REGENTS program, where you have a chance to take high school courses such as ,Earth science, Integrated algebra, Living environment, and Literature. The only down side about this school is that it could be a little cleaner and more sanitary. Other than that, it has much resources such as textbooks, labs, computer labs, books, a library, and much more. I would recommend this school to anyone! It teaches Pre-K and Kindergarten (other than grades 6-8). The top teachers of the school (in no particular order) would be Mr.Soares, Mr.Mateo, Ms.Seabrooks, Ms.Giustino, and Ms.Gaynair. I hope this review/opinion was a helpful reference towards you finding a great middle school such as, J.H.S 127!

i love this school ur child would be fine this school is a safe place for children

All three of my children have attended this school, two under the supervision of the new principal Mr. Sherman. He has really turned the school around. It's definitely a better place in every area. Some of the better teachers are Mr. Fal, Ms. Hughes, and Ms. Seabrooks. If your kids wind up getting them, they're very lucky.
