that school was the best my sons learn so much now they work in a bank
Lane is a safe place for struggling youth to recieve a holistic service approach for healthy teenage development. Awesome school
the school is okay its just the fact that the students dont want to make a change. once the students strive for success, thats what theyll recive. but they have to give 50-50. you have to give to get.
I think if there were no bad behaving kids in this school this school will be great but since a lot of parents don't teach their kids manner at home this is what make this school the worst of the school
I have had about six cousins and more than twenty friends that already graduated from this school.one of the main things is the bad name that is given to this school by others but its not the school its the student this school has excellent programs and even better staff so if a child does not succeed its not the school its them all opportunities are equal for all student and if your failing or having a bad time in school don't blame it on the school blame it on your self because their are others who are doing it. this is an excellent school in an ok community people should stop talking down on it. because of one bad review in the paper.
The school provides many areas of educational choices, also they have a wide variety of sports. The school had its largest graduating class in over 15yrs after an overhaul of administration and curriculum in the last few years. I have 2 daughters that went through there and both took advantage of the programs and made good friends with teachers and students.
Franklin K. Lane is an excellent school with a terrible reputation given by one newspaper. If you want an education, this is the place to go. The teachers are some of the best in New York. The administration is second to none. If you want to learn, these teachers will bend over backwards to help you. When there is a problem, they are quick to solve it if you are willing to listen and compromise. All you have to do is visit the school and want an education. Then Franklin K. Lane is the place for you.
No matter what school you go to, there will always be kids that work hard and are determined. Just because a student goes there, does not mean that that student is not intelligent. If someone would just spend a day and see how the school actually functions, then maybe it will change the opinion of many others. They have an excellent Law Program, which provides students with the opportunity to go on field trips to court houses, participate in mock trials etc... Instead of just criticing the school, you may want to spend some time there, and think twice about it.
This school has received a bad reputation for no reason! The incoming class has very low reading and math levels and it would be almost impossible to attain graduation in four years under such a handicap. The population has a high percent of English Language Learners and few of the parents have themselves graduated High School. Poverty and all the social problems that go with life in East New York, Cypress Hills and environs contribute to a student body unlikely to achieve academic success. NONETHELESS, the faculty and administration of the school remains dedicated, positive and eager to elevate the educational goals and performance of Lane's students. Unfortunately, the data driven demands of the State Education Department will most probably result in the closing of this venerable institution. What a shame!
