This is my son's second year here , He is currently in 6th grade. I put my son in catholic and public schools and none of them compare to CIP. CIP is a great school providing excellent education but most of all discipline. This school focuses on the positive not the negative. They encourage the scholars to achieve and reward them for their efforts. I am very happy with this school and grateful that my son got in and that the school goes up to 12th grade. Excellent school!

Im a student at this school and i feel as if im sometimes unwanted by teachers. I feel this way because one teacher gave me a dean referral for nonsense saying that i kept interrupting class when i wasnt. They clearly see the person causing the trouble and since i giggle, im the one who is the class's reason of it failing. I feel unappreciated. These so called educated people may be educated in what they teach but are very clueless in us children's well being. They totally ignore you. These teachers dont even try to comprehend in the way we feel, nor think about our well beings in this school. They make us do surveys but there is never a new improvement. Parents may think this is the best school but if they saw our perspective of things, they'll feel the same we feel about this ragged schools systems and staff workers.

Overall, this school needs to improve in several areas. It seems to me that there is a great deal of fluff rather than content-area skills and learning. I taught here and could not wait to get out!

My child like the school very much. Every Friday tey have a celabration of how much PRIDE dollars you ended with.They have sign everywhere to work hard sothey could go to college.On the bottom of the homework folders, are all the names of the taechers and all their phonenumbers. If your child needs any help with homework they could call the teacher that teaches the subject and ask for help. I really love that.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on 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.
