Posted April 23, 2013

My school is the best school out there. It may be little and may not be as advanced as other school but I am so glad to be apart of Marie Curie H.S. The teachers push us to do our best and are always challenging us and maybe due to the fact that it is a small school it feels like a family. My class mates are always there for me and even people I don't know are always willing to help. My school just needs more funds to be able to supply all the students with laptops and have more technology. But otherwise than that I think this school really motivates students to go above and beyond and to never give up and always try there best.

I wish there was more parent involvment. The opportunities are there but the parents are not taking advantage. I know I do. We the parents need to be there for our children even though they are in high school and are condsidered as young adults.

Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass 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.
