The Director is hardly there. If she is she is unknowing of violations her school has received per information posted on the nycgov.com. Their security measures are easily compromised. When asked about background checks done they were vague about the matter and unwilling to provide information.

I am very satisfied with my son being in this school. All of the teachers and staff are very friendly and are very detail explaining my sons progress. He has learnt so much being in this school.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
