Very disappointed by this school. During freshman & sophomore year both years many teachers left in the middle of a semester and children failed due to lack of consistency and no real curriculum in the classroom with weeks to regents exams. Many of my peers failed Geometry, Algebra, and U.S. History due to the school's revolving door of teachers. Although I was not among those to fail, the school is extremely biased when it comes to giving opportunities, determining who receives them based off favoritism. Chiefly among this school's sinking ship, are the unprofessional administrators that are capable of developing vendettas against teenagers.

the school curriculum leaves much to be desired, there are little to no extracurricular activities, the teachers make promises they don't have the authority or intention of keeping, and they violate/uphold policies at their discretion. The transfer rate is ridiculously high and the graduation rate is low. factor in the students that have been dismissed or dropped out and you get a very disheartening picture. I'm getting my child out of this school.

My son goes her and he absolutely loves it. He talks about it all the time , he talks about he great teachers there, the opportunities such as internships and first hand experiences in the industry. When my friends ask him what school he goes to he loves to brag. He says the only thing bad about the school is the fact that is unheard of! Besides that school is the only advertising school in the whole of United States!

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.
