Right off Court Street, walking distance to Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn, this school is in a great & safe location for kids. The teachers are great. The PTA is very active. The principal gets personally involved whenever possible. There's a variety of sports teams, clubs, study abroad opportunities, college readiness programs ... If your child wants it, the opportunities are here!

As a parent of a student at this school, I find it to be a small personal setting. All of the teachers and staff are like parents to the children. This school has no medal detectors, which says alot for a high school in NYC today. There is tutoring available during lunch and after school in all subjects. the teachers work with the children to provide the best education they can. The principle and guidance department have an open door policy for parents. The children are accepted to many good colleges. Come and view the school for your self the doors are always open. We have a new Principal that is more responsive to parents. Joseph O'Brien is no longer the Principal

Teaching at Global Studies has been an experience in itself and I will not trade it for anything in this world. Yes, we have gone through many trails and tabulations, but there is one thing I can say about Global Studies, its foundation is strong. The system pushes us push back and we push it back. Teachers have come and gone but they all have had very positive impacts on the students. This is apparent when the alumni come to visit. If Global did not have have to deal with the bureaucracy of politics, as many schools in the system do, we could just be about expanding knowledge, introducing new experiences, and rekindling the love of learning. I will always push for this style of Learning. I am a teacher, a tool for expanding knowledge, I teach at Global Studies. We are serious about strengthening the natural talents to develop the weaker abilities. Our focus is developing strong skilled and minded young men and women that can withstand challenges in their next stage in life. Yes average because there are always innovations to expand our delivery of information to allow for growth. Education and educating is not static.

i am an student to this school the teachers are awsome the people are great the school is also mantianed very nice and clean you chidren will be very happy to go to this school


Posted February 25, 2009

here are many great things about the school such as student led conferences which replaced parent-teacher conferences. The student presents to the parent his/hers best and worst work and then has to defend it. A teacher is always present to assist and course teachers are available to meet with. The student is in charge explaining their understanding of the work and what can be done to better themselves and what steps do they plan to take going forward. The parent can ask the student any questions about their work. This to me is the child taking responsibility and I have seen such pride in their work since its inception. Responsiblity also belongs to the parents. As in some of the best public schools in NYC, participation in the PTA allows the parent to be involved in the process and know what is going on in their school. Join the PTA!

I know for a fact that Global Studies is a good school, not because my child goes there; but I check up on him at impromptu times. The kids are always working in class and I occasionally bump into staff members while I am there ( also the principal). So my advice to parents who want to send their child there, don't be afraid.

This is a great school. I will recommend it to my friends and family. BSGS care about educating your children and making them great citizens. My child has spent 3.5 years here and I'll do it again. Visit their web site http://www.myglobalstudies.com/home.aspx

I think Global Studies principal & teacher's work hard at teaching students to be self-motivated and self-disciplined. Curriculum is designed to prepare students to live successfully as a contributing member of a community & be able to solve problems and adapt to change.

This School is absolute garbage, they dont record attendance, they allow open racisim, and they dont take action against a student when he does something wrong. This makes for a horrible school enviroment, I strongly suggest you only go to this school as a last resort.

As a student of global studies this school is good for where its at.It is nothing like the other review. If the student act civilized together then it would be a school like fort hamilton or maybe even merrow.There are student so smart that their in ap classes. The school is getting to be known little by little by our wonderful principle lisa gibbs.

I was in global since 8th grade, the teachers are great, the kids are really cool, they just form there own crews. I had one of the best principals around. The teacher did what ever they had to, to make sure the kids got there worked done and moved to the next grade. There where times I didnt think I would graduate, but my teachers pushed me so hard and I graduated on time, and got into most of the college I applied to. Its not the schools fault if the kids dont do nothing, that the parents fault. The security gaurds are always doing there jobs and are always patrolling the halls. The school was fun, I would go back if I could.

The school is not what I expected, classroom sizes more than 26 kids, fights everyday, teachers don't control the classrooms, and my son is learning what he learned in 4th grade and he is in 7th they won't place him where he belongs!

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 2012-2013 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. 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.
