Hello fellow parents, I'd like to share my experience at Success Academy Williamsburg. I have a daughter in second grade. I was worried it would be too hard, too strict etc. I have to say, I'm blown away by the level of care and commitment to my child. They not only have shown her how to access her own style of learning but have allowed her to feel a deep sense of respect for herself and others. My son who is entering K this fall. He has a possible neurologic condition and has trouble with stairs. Naturally I am worried how he will manage and keep up with other kids. The Principle, Abby Johnson is so kind and accessible and has a wonderful background on educating the whole child. After our meeting she requested to have a playdate with our son to get to know him so she could make an informed recommendation. At this point we are evaluating the situation. We are looking into a 'Health Para'. Whatever we decide I feel that they are partners with my finding the right solution for my son. My children's individual needs are truly taken care of - I can't say enough great things about this school. Geraldine Bien

My daughter began first grade at Success Academy this academic year and I am so glad to have made the decision to apply. This is an outstanding school where the curriculum is challenging and engaging and the staff are energetic, motivated and seem truly excited to teach every day. There is also open communication between the parents and teachers, which has allowed us to pinpoint my child's specific needs and cater to them. She has progressed wonderfully these few months she has been at this school and I could not be more pleased. I am very excited to have my younger daughter begin kindergarten here in the fall.

This is my child's first year & I am pleased by the teachers & administration. They are wonderful. There is a wealth of communication between the principal, teachers & office staff with the parents. It's great to see that the teachers are caring & enthusiastic about their work. I will update my review by years end.

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.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
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.
