The Eagle Academy for Young Men is an "All Boys Public School" network of Academies with four in New York City and one in Newark, New Jersey. I believe, based on doing consultant work with the Academies and seeing first hand the work of the parents, teachers, principals, and the scholars that this education process is one that needs to be duplicated for use by all of our educational institutions. The Parent Engagement is the "Best" I've ever seen in any schools that I have attended. I've been involved in education for four decades and I've never seen parents participate in the education of their sons like at the Eagle Academy for Young Men. When parents, scholars, teachers, and Principals believe any goals of the students can be met, the resulting work of all produces great success. One other thing is the Eagle Academy for Young Men assigns "Men Mentors" to work with every scholar and "Mentoring is the Key to the Success" of what the Eagle Academy for Young Men do with the Sons and Families involved in the Education of their Sons! I've never seen anything like it before!
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.
No. Eagle I s not a great school......my son goes through constist torment by upperclassmen . Poor view of students meaning their safety. The teacher have favorites....it;s not fair.. Good luck to the idiot parents going to submit their son there.....To me the school is a human experiment it's always changing
