I really like this school but they don't not have extra coricilar activities for girls like cheer leading or gymnastics they only play one main sport like kick. Ball there should be a variety of sports for girls which there is not.also there are no language classes and all students should be able to attend different classes such as art and things .this school would be much better like that.
This is a great school. Parents and students are happy to stay in, and they are appreciated. This school has 4 years taking A, and its learning environment tells how the community appreciate this school. This school is in the Bronx and serve very poor people but is a successful school not matter the poor neighborhood.
I would never let a child I cared about spend a day in this building. I taught at 232 for a few years, and the level of administrative incompetence is mind-boggling. Due to the violence and chaos in this school, teacher turnover rate is very high, and those that do stay tend to be of low quality. Except for the efforts of a few individual teachers, there are no academic standards in this building, although great emphasis is placed on 'show.' All teachers know that if they can put something decent (perhaps typed by the teacher herself) on the bulletin board, they will earn praise, but no one paid any true attention to what was actually taught in the classroom. Disruptive students run the school, but I would be disruptive, too, if treated so poorly by staff members.
