My school is one of the best when it comes to implementing and adhering to the needs of the students. The teacher, therapists, coucelors and even the prnicipal and assistant principals get involved in the students' progress and annual goals.

This school is a great place to work in and a great place for students on the spectrum to attend. As an educator at this school we uphold ourselves to high standards given to us by the DOE and our administrators. Our motto "Working Together" defines who we are. I run a team approach in my classroom...our team consists of the classroom staff, the students, the related service providers, the parent coordinator, and of course the parents. I love the support 176 has to offer both staff and parents! It's a great place to learn and work in!

This is an amazing program for students with autism who range in age from 3 to 21. There are 6:1:1, 8:1:1, and Inclusion classes. They have a Salsa Band, Chorus, all students participate in Art, Music, and Computer classes, and the staff truly cares for their students.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
