Overall:
Submitted by a parent · January 03, 2017
Lots of potential, and some strong teachers, but the administration really does seem like they are continuously surprised and on a learning curve for how to run a school. They do have a strong technology bent (which we like), but more and more... more

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · January 03, 2017
Frequently seems lost and confused about how to run a school in NYC. The word from others who work in independent schools is that Alt hired a lot of teachers as administrators who don't (yet?) know what they are doing.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · October 14, 2015
Always available to talk. Continually sharing success and failures and talking through every aspect of a child's day. The kids really trust the teachers and I can see how much they are learning.

Amount of homework: Agree
Submitted by a parent · October 14, 2015
No homework but my daughter is so inspired by what she is doing in class she had us download some of the same software they use in class so she could continue learning at home.
