MONTAUK IS THE BEST PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD TO GOT JHS. THEY HAVE A GREAT STAFF AND A RECEPTIVE ADMINISTRATION. MY SON IS GETTING A GREAT EDUCATION AND HAVING FUN DOING SO THEY OFFER MANY AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS. MONTAUK HAS GREAT PTA WHO ARE VERY ACTIVE IN RAISING FUNDS FOR FUN ACTIVITIES TO MAKE SCHOOL A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL INVOLVED , TEACHERS, STUDENTS, AND THE STAFF. WHEN THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS GET ALONG BETTER IT CONDUSIVE TO BETTER LEARNING. MR FRANK,. MRS. MANCINI, AND MR. O'HANLON ARE THE BEST.

In my opinion I think montauk was a great school. Of course if you just walk in they wont have your attention. You need to talk to them in order to get their attention. Many of the teachers are great and help you understand. Montauk is also part of the itech/ilearn program making every student in the school to get a laptop (isn't that cool) One after school program you can take is the champs program which they make you work out and playing football, european handball and basketball. I suggest you go to montauk its great!

This school is lacking is in support from the prinicipal and the office staff is extremely rude you walk in there and they ignore you until one of the assistant principals walk in. there are a few good teachers and mrs. mancini is the best but besides that no one wants seems to want to do their job.

In contrast to the other junior high schools this school is horrible. There really isnt any special programs/clubs that are offered here, the school environement is overall bad and except for some few exceptions (Mrs Miller, Mrs Basso, and Mr. Sherman!!), the staff there are very rude.

My years at Montauk were the best and most memorable ever. Ms Fox was the best teacher I had. I wish I can find her today so that I can thank her.

As a former student of this great junior high school, I gotta say this school holds my best memories. Mr. Sherman you are the best teacher in the world. The teachers know how to teach. There is alot of homework, sometimes I hate this sometimes I love it. No racism. Also splitting the 34 floors is a great idea, math and science academy rules! In conclusion this is the best school.

I was a former Montauk IS223 student. I have to say my years attending the school was very memorable. I had made friends in that school that are everlasting. This school was great. Especially my 8th year that was the best year of my life. Montauk was a great school compared to high school. Not only did I learn plenty I had alot of fun. This school is the best. I will never forget my years i spent in this school.

The acedemic quality and parent involvement is extremely poor. The leadership of the school is also lacking. The PTA is hardly existent. There is a lack of adequate teaching material...these commments are from a veteran teacher. A child can not succeed if they are not given the opportunity to do so. They need structure.

Being a former student of Montauk Middle School, I have witnessed first hand how harsh students can be. The discpline in that school was very lenient. I even saw a security guard give a student a cigarette! It was that easy. All they had to do was be nice to that guard and they were off from any kind of suspension whatsoever. I'm glad I was there for merely one year for it was a horrible place to be in. Students actually through other students down the staircase just for the fun of it. I hope they cleaned up the act in Montauk, because there were many people who had a possibility to do great things with their lives, but were brought short because of the negligence of Montauk Middle School.

Montauk is a safe and culturally diverse school. There has been administrative changes over the past year for the better. Teachers are dedicated and the students are engaged. My son's guidance counselor has been a great help.
