My son attends Eagle Academy For Young Men. He began school here in the 9th grade and is now in the 11th. This school has molded him into a different person. He is more self assured and highly motivated. I have never seen such a group of more dedicated teachers and staff as in Eagle. I would have to say overall, the school is excellent and they do there best at turning these young men into scholars. However, we must realize that the school can't do all the work. When I read negative reviews it truly frustrates me because I think of the old saying "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink." The school has the resources available for our young boys to succeed, but they can't do it alone. Parents and young men must take some responsibilty for their actions/non actions as well.

Demanding "Great Academic Expectations" along with a consistent community service give back is one of the things that makes the Eagle Academy for Young Men very successful. The "success" comes because each Academy has a top notch Principal, an excellent Staff, Parent Engagement above any school you've ever worked with, and Mentoring for the young scholars starting in the 6th grade on through the 12th grade. In this description by Great Schools, all Academies in the Network start at 6th Grade and go on to graduation in the 12th grade. Excellence in Education and becoming World Class Citizens is the order of the day! YOU can help out by going to www.eagleacademyfoundation.org and pick the area of your involvement. If you don't have the time, submit a donation to help out!

My son now is in 10th grade and I have to say that I really like the school. The school has some many things to offer and it has kept my son on the right track. The fact that they have a wrestling team which my son enjoys it helps him stay focus and also physically fit. I like the fact the school has many programs that the students can choose from and it helps them acdemically.

I usually judge everyone by 1st impressions. My son will be a 9th grader at Eagle in the fall 2009 school year. There are so many things that we both love about this school. He attended their Summer Bridge Program and gained a window into 9th grade at Eagle something that other area high schools don't allow students and families to do. The access to mentors seem limitless and there appears to be a collaborative educational and social environment as well. We are so thrilled to be accepted into the Eagle family and my husband and I are truly looking forward to the next 4 years at Eagle. Eagle is turning our boys into men one child at a time and this is ultimately helping to restore our families. Thank you in advance Eagle Academy for Young Men! From - A very appreciative mom in the South Bronx.

My son is a freshman at Eagle. He likes the school and I also believe in what they are doing for these young men. He really likes to write and he does well in math. He speaks very highly of both his writing teacher and math teacher at Eagle. They really get that all children grasp learning at different levels and they are responding to this need in a very nurturing and creative way. My son's future looks very bright at Eagle. We need more schools like Eagle in the Bronx. Thank You to all the staff and teachers at Eagle Academy for Young Men.

When my son was in 6th grade we began looking for a small H.S. and we came across E.A.F.Y.M. From time he entered 9th grade he has made progress that has amazed us. The students and teachers work as teams that have common goals; respect, education, giving back, graduation and college acceptance. I would /have readily recommended this school to others so their young men can have a place to flourish as mine has.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

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.
