Posted May 22, 2013

The idea of the school is novel,(an all boys charter school in ENY) but the execution has been horrible. If you have high standards and expect your son to get a great elementary education, this is not the school for you. Academics are sub-par, most teachers are under-qualified, curriculum is lacking, and the environment is unstructured and chaotic. Your son will not get the proper foundation he needs to excel in the remainder of his academic career. This school is currently in it's 3rd year of existence and still is trying to get "it" right. There have also been several changes in the school leadership teams, but these changes have lead to no positive progress. While they are trying and failing, the students are being left by the wayside. I am in the process of removing my son as this is being typed. I wish I had something positive to say, as this is a school that is sponsored by community leaders. This school is definitely not worth taking the chance on, especially if you want the best academic and social environment for your son. I have given this school a one star rating because that is the lowest that a school could be given.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
