I would not recommend this school to anyone. The teachers are not treated fairly by the administration and it is sadly shown to the students. The school worries about the uniform polices so much that they would rather hold the student in detention the entire day than let them learn in their classes. The school is also unfair towards the students and treat some better than others. As a parent I've noticed that the school loves to suspend its students for insubordination as their #1 reason to exclude the students from their education. I regret ever sending my child to that school but am proud that out of all the struggles my child has undergone and the obstacles administration has put in the way that my child stands strong amongst the rest and they hate that.

The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice is just a stone's throw away from the Bronx Supreme Court. I had heard many things about the school, some good, some bad. What has most influenced my deciding to rate the school with 4 stars is the parent-teacher meeting I attended on Friday, October 25th. I found the most dedicated, sincere teachers really wanting to do the best for their class. The comments were positive and truly uplifting. Many things can be said about this school, but nothing beats teachers who are driven to see their students achieve only the best.. Hats off to a school that is striving to make something out of their student body inspite of the neighborhood they live in.

I'm a parent of an 8th grader. This school has gone downhill. It's a mad house in there. Do no send your kids here. Those kids have no respect for authority and each other. It's chaotic and just out of control. I'm glad my son (also have a daughter) is no longer going to that school. Horrible experience for both him and I. He has always been an Honor Student but this school makes even the best students distracted by all the commotion and lack of respect and manners. He begged me to remove him since sixth grade. I'm just glad he is headed to a specialized high school now.

I am a parent of a 10th grade student at the school.The Internship opportunities are great. My son has volunteered at the Botanical Garden,The Civil Court house and has been involved in Debate, Chess and sports teams. The dress code is extremely strict (dress shoes, tie,shirt) but they are preparing for legal and corporate business. My son is proud to dress like a professional.

My son will be a new 9th grader coming in and the schools seems great but unfortunately he does not want to go to the school because of the strict dress code. Now I need to find him a new school because if I don't he's not going to dress the way they want him to and may eventually not go to school at all. The strict dress code could really discourage some children.

This school is a nice school in a wonderful facitlity. For themost part the students are respectful of authority, they are students that want the respect that they have to give the administrators.

LGJ looks nice, has some good teachers that teach good n not only teach and learn from but those who built a true relationship with you and who act luke true humans. The bad things are the dresscode rules are to strict they worry more about that then their education,there late and disorganized in everything,they change to many rules and apply those that dont apply in the books;n treat teachers unfair.

LGJ (Law, Government and Justice) is an academically rigorous, safe and nurturing environment for all students. The faculty and staff love their jobs and their students. They make every effort to provide a well rounded and challenging experience for the students. The students themselves are dedicated, charismatic and as a result of the overall tone of the school they are well prepared for the rigors of college and professional life. If you are looking for a premier school with an excellent graduation and college preparatory program this is your place.

My name is Christina Vasquez and I am a current LGJ student. I have been attending this school for the past 3years. This school offers various of courses. This school is very tremendous. The teachers don't only teach but they guide as well. You are able to get one on one help, thier are always someone to talk to. Unlike many other schools this is a safe environment. It's like a second home to many of us. Dont get me wrong they do expect a lot from you. You are challenged the whole way through your highschool year. LGJ even has 7th and 8th graders. How many schools do you see has that. For more information come by and see the school spirit and how it can impact your life, because it sure did mine.

The quality of academic programs are great A wide variety of: Civil law courses Business law courses, After school tutoring, Sports, Real court room with international access, The parents are constantly involved. The gym is very huge and comforting. The students are very well mannered, strict dress code is enforced. Internships at law firms and big businesses. The school has very small amounts of children within each class for a more personal learning hands on experience. Every teacher becomes really involved with the students and wants nothing but the best for every one equally. no earrings, baggy clothing, or tardiness. the students who attends this high school must be dedicated very hardworking, and respectful. the lunch room is remodeled as the a mcdonalds booth very colorful and spacious. this i have to say is the best school in the bronx maybe even the new york state because of it's value and devotion to strict rules and guidence the teachers provide.

My child loves this school, Everybody seems to know each other name from the principal to the students. This school make her think harder and work harder too. she is a seventh grader there but the school doesn't exclude them from events because they are the youngest they treat them like high school students. she loves all her classes,the students and the atmosphere. she is able to express herself there and have a critical mind. the teachers are very supportive and they make their classes fun. now she is motivated to go to school.we need more schools like this in the bronx!

As a former employee of BLGJ, I can speak first hand on the commitment and dedication that is possessed by the staff. Students are given an opportunity to learn first hand knowledge of a law based academic program, while at the same time allows them to remain in their community. This school is invaluable. Prinicipal David Banks is a tremendous leader, and an asset to the NYCBOE.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on 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.
