Have my daughters since Kinder. Very good teachers and good learning environment. Keep parents involve with kids progress.
I have attended this school from grade 3 to 8. I have graduated from this school and am now in the 10th grade. Carl c. Icahn Charter school has done a wonderful job in preparing me for high school. My teachers never gave up helping me achieve my goals and be all that i can be. Even though i have graduated, I can still go back to visit and get advice about my school work from my previous teachers. I am proud to say that I attended Carl C. Icahn charter school
I think this school was the best thing that could have happened for me and my girls.They have attended Ichan since 2002 and have soared academically.The teachers and staff are the most caring I have seen anywhere. When I think about what would have happened if this school wasn't built when it was ,I get very sad..The public schools in the bronx are a disgrace. The learning that goes on at Carl Ichan can only be compared to that of schools for academically gifted students.I would recommend this school to everyone.
Carl C. Ichan is the best school in the Bronx. I am amazed at my 5 year old son singing the continent song and identifying that we live in North America! He's very enthusiastic and loves doing homework. Mr. Litt is truly a dedicated and devoted educator that genuinely cares for our kids. Our school has professionals working diligently with our kids and I feel so secure and happy that my son attends Carl C. Ichan. The school is extremely serious about our children's future and for that I thank all the teachers, administrators and staff for all their hard work and dedication. Our statistics and our high level of educational goals puts Ichan School in the forefront as a leader of excellence. I am extremely proud of my son and his school. Thank you for the Ichan School.
My daughter has been at the Icahn Charter School since 3rd grade. She came from a failed Charter School. Her state test scores were a 2 and a 3. She was very weak in many subjects and I didn't know what to do. Mr. Litt spoke to me many times and the staff put my daughter under their wing once they noticed her weakness. My daughter has since gone to a 3 and a 4 every year. She is missed being a 4 by 3 points. I love this school. I am forever dedicated to them for changing my daughter's life and shaping her future. She now has goals and dreams. She is very happy. I am very happy. Thank You Mr. Litt, Ms. Natalie, Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Silfen and Ms. Anderson.
My daughter loves the school, she adores Mr. Litt & Mr. Santiago. Academically she well beyond her grade level & the school keeps her motivated to continue to learn & excel.
I enrolled my niece in this school in 2003 and not a day goes by that I regret doing so. Mr. Litt and Ms. Natalie and the rest of the staff their are the best and I hope to have my son enrolled as well. My niece has since moved out of state but still misses the staff and the students. All the staff take account and show tremendous amount of attention to each student. This school is destined for great things!
I like the academic work, there is no music program and there is no hope for one in the near future, there is a semi sport program, not very strong, there is discipline problem with some classes that remains problematic.
My daughter is in the 1st grade at Carl Icahnt. I cannot express my gratitude to the Principal and the staff for creating safe, loving environment that is nurturing her Academically and Culturally. She now reads on a 3rd grade level. When she started school in 2002 she could not read at all. She now adds up to three columns, is learning about time, money, multiplication & division. She can tell you everything there is to know about Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Continents and famous Artist. Even when she is sick she complains about missing school. She is learning things that no other children I know of her age is learning. Friends and family are amazed at the knowledge she has acquired in such a short space of time. Parents are welcomed at any time and the staff knows every child. That goes to show the attention and love given there.
My child started at this school in kindergaten. She was new and had some knowledge of school. Both kindergaten teachers worked extremly hard to make sure that every child left their class reading. Words cannot explain how hard these teachers work with the children at Carl C. Ichan. Every teacher take special time to work with each child to build their self confidence and make sure they are on grade level. The principal is very nurturing to all his students and parents. He has an open door policy. Parents feel welcomed to the school at all times. All of the staff is extremely pleasant when you walk into the school and know each child by name.
