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
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 schools teachers are very disrespectful. This school is horrible
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!
