Well I'm going into this school next year and my cousin is in there by the way she talks the school is the best. I'm trying to gruaduate 1 year before I'm suppose to. Wish me luck!!!!


Posted June 1, 2012

I used to be a teacher here and i can only say that i am very glad i left when i did. the principal there in 2007 was a very ineffective manager (forget about being a leader). There were plenty of disciplinary issues that she was not able to assist. the students did not respect her and she did not respect her teachers. We did not get any professional development about using proactive approaches to discipline. Most parents were disinterested and we had very poor turn out at Parent-Teacher conferences. Students were generally extremely disrespectful and some (i did have some wonderful students) students came to school to ONLY socialize. Good luck trying to get them to listen. I'm still a teacher and have remained one because i left when i did. there were too many structural (and i don't mean with the building) issues in this school.

As you can tell by the star rating this school is terrible - I'm glad I did not let my child stay past the 2nd year. Pulled him out ASAP. would not recommend this school to any parent.

its not a good school. there's been numerous fights since 2011 started and recently a big fight happened, which ended in police being called. today the news cast was outside the school and before the school was mentioned on channel 12 news (not for good things).

My child has been in this school for 2 years and although from the outside seems like a great school. The teachers do not have the patience or understanding of dealing with teenagers and the only thing I see them do is write pre-suspensions letter all the time. I have yet to see them actually take a productive approach to teach a lesson or show that there are consequences for the students actions. Instead they rather keep them out of school. Its a ashame to say I am very disappointed in the way they handle situuations at this school.

Sorry to say I have nothing good to say about this school. Worst yet, my child is stuck in this school and I have no say about taking my child out. Poor teaching, no respect for students as far as I can see. biggest mistake was to place my child in this school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 12, 2008

My child is in the 7th grade and has the best teachers that I have seen in a NYC public school. If you are looking for a school where teachers are actually able to teach then Eximius is right for your child.

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.
