i went to this school and i have to say, it was the worst. The people below saying that they or their child got good grades is because the teachers don't even take the time to give correct grades. They just pass kids so that they look good. I'm happy they're closing down the school because it messed me up badly. before i got to the school i was a straight A student, but when i got there, i got mixed in to the wrong crowd (which is every crowd to be honest) and my grades dropped. The kids there are so mean and there is a SERIOUS bullying problem in that school. Even though i wasn't considered a "nerd" or "loser" i still got bullied and i witnessed some pretty bad bullying that i had the brains to put an end to. Well, i'm very happy i got out of that school and i am getting good grades again and i am going to college soon. I would not want any child of yours to go to this school the kids are cruel, and the teachers don't care and it will be the worst and most unproductive years of your child's life.

I am a parent of a student who is actually enrolled in this school. I believe that everyone should be given a chance to succeed but I truly believe that this school should be closed. No true leadership, I have stood outside of the door while the teachers are teaching and they treat our children awfully. They belittle the children and make them feel horrible. The teachers are absent most of the time and the classes are too big. Then they wonder why they are doing so poorly. The school has been recognized as a school in need of improvement and it sure needs much improvement starting with the principal, who needs to be removed. Then remove those teachers who come to the Bronx to collect a paycheck rather than properly teach our children. I am very disappointed in our school system which apparently does not care for our children's future.

My daughter when to aspire and graduated in 2012. This school really messed her up badly. In 6th grade everything was fine then in 7 th grade then they took her main teacher mr Jonas away so he could teach all the other 7th graders math so they can pass the state test which the school still did badly . My child was spending the whole day in a class room with the gym teacher not learning for about two months. In 8th grade she really started to hate the school cause the teacher would stop teaching and yell all day because of any little thing a child would do. Now she's in high school an all girl private school and I see changes in her she loves school. She still is mad that she is catching up with kids in her class cause aspire never cared enough to teach her what she need to know for high school but she was getting 80s and 90s on her report card. The only thing they did is teach then how to pass the state test. I'm glad this school will not be ruining any more of our kids future

Principal has a lack of control over the students. Students are disrespectful, and often cut class.

I love this school ! Even though sometimes I get annoyed with the teachers I know that they care for the students and that they only want the best for us. The school is like a big family, most teachers are fun and the students, we are crazy but in a good way. I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other school but Aspire !
