I wish i still went to this school, Me a young teen would never miss school in this great place. There are a very little amount of bad kids but they're dealt with. I am going back my last year absolutely. This school will improve people.
my daughter started at david boody this year and i must say i"am glad that i picked this school for my child. the teachers are great and the deans are great, the principal is great also, i would tell everyone if they want a good school this school is for there child.
I.S. 228 is a magnificent school. Principal D'Angelo is the greatest principal I have ever met --he gets things done. He also cares about our children and does all that he can to help them succeed. There are excellent teachers in every subject area at I.S. 228 - and they do all that they can to aid our children in understanding the subject matter. Finally, Ms. Sigona is the ultimate educator - what a beautiful, kind and smart individual. Thank you all for 3 years of magnificence. Principal D'Angelo - keep up the good work and continue to bring the latest innovation to the student at I.S. 228 - you are the best!
I feel David A Boody is an excellent school because of my daily experience in the school. As a teacher at this school I know my co-workers and I strive to be the best teachers by constantly keeping up with every students' needs- academically and socially. The principal, Mr. D'Angelo, is the most innovative leader I have experienced. In just a few years he has taken the school from a D rating to an A rating. He truly lives by the model "Eyes on Excellence." Lastly, our programs at our school are rigorous and engaging to our students. Technology is integrated into every subject. Math especially is run by a program called School of One which uses a computerized algorithm that differentiates the skills each student needs to learn and finds the best way that individual student may learn those skills. No student is left behind. Failure is not an option.
David A. Boody is a fantastic school. The teachers there care. I still think about them. It is because of them that I have the life that I have. The teachers there always inspired me to do my best.
My daughter is in the 8th grade. When she first entered the school, it earned a "D" on it's progress report. Then Mr. D'Angelo became principal. That year the school went from a "D" to a "B". The next year it went to an "A". This is a great school that has a nice family feel to it. It is filled with good caring teachers, talented kids and a great principal.
My twins have just started Boody. So far the princiapal is right on the money. he is involved in every aspect in the school. Mr. D'Angelo is helping me w/my son giving him encouragement. I will inform about how he is doing. I am a Happy middle school parent. Boody rocks!!!!
It is a wonderful school and the teacher are so nice and so helpful.
I Love this school so much my daughter is learning very well she is actuly improvin very good
Good Teachers. But some students behavior needs to improve more in some classes
My son is in the music program at Boody. He is in 3 bands in school and the Boro-wide Orchestra as well. He is dong very well and looks forward to the concerts he has to preform in. I have complete trust in the teachers as he seems to be getting smarter by the minute. The school, in my opinion, is underated. I would recommend the school to family and friends for sure!
Boody has few positives and many negatives. The school isn't safe enough and many,many kids get away with misbehaving. There's fights like every week and teachers arent tough enough to control kids. The best point of Boody is its magnets, music and arts. Boody has alot to improve and it is definetly not the best school to go to.we need more teachers that take charge.
I recently graduated David A Boody! It was an amazing school ! The teachers definetly make you feel welcome and during my last year, I passed my regents exam as one of the best in the class and ended with a high average. This school amde me like to read and learn, I had very close relationships with my teachers. They were very close to my heart. It is a great school!
There are too many bad kids attending the school that don't live in the neighborhood. Classes are crowded. Bad students are put in to classes with the smart ones which brings down the quality of education because teachers must deal with disruptive kids.
I graduated in the Class of '04. This school in general is mediocre. I would say only 1 out of every 5 teachers are good. This school seriously needs to impose stricter safety rules and deal with the peer pressure that goes on everyday. I still remember I walk down in the hallways and see people get harassed, threatened, and bullied. This not only happens in the hallways but in school buses also. The reasons for these vile actions come from prejudice, racism, and sexism. The only way this school will succeed is to not accept students with bad disciplines. Also, I remember in my last year in Boody, the system was corrupted. Our senior dues were taken but half the things that were promised were not given to us. The only good things about this school are some of the teachers, some of the school events, and the magnets.
David a boody gave my child a great education. I m very happy to send my child to this school becus this school has the #1 music department and my child's music talent is approaching to the lavel where she;s like an adult i m very proud.
My child had learn many new things since school first started. Boody made my child felt safe and happy . Boody is a great school .
this school is very bad, the only good thing is the magnets. the teachers are horrible
The academic programs are nothing but good. The Teachers are nice, friendly, and very helpful. You can learn a lot from them as well. I am currently in 7th grade, and I already love this school! I am in a SP class (special program for smart people) and a great student. When I came to this school, I barely knew English, but with the help of first, my ESL Teacher, and later on, my English Teacher, I am in the SP class! SP is harder than the regular class, with Enrichment programs, and foreign languages. In overall, this is a great school, and if someone tells you otherwise, They are wrong!
