I believe for a school that is fairly new it has a great sense of family for students. Staff and faculty are very dedicated to the students and parents are very informed if their child is falling behind in classes. Because it's a small school it does lack a variety of extracurricular activities but it makes up for it in academic programs. Alot of great college prep for the kids.

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.
