I was born and raised in Bay Ridge. This school has proven to be a good school in the past 5 years or so. I have to applaud Ms Geary and her staff for such great involvement. Teachers are attentive and serious about teaching. Don't let bad comments about this school steer you wrong. Students that come from involved parents, and a respectful home with values and principles, do excellent in this school. --- Mom of a graduate student.
School is awful if your child is struggling and you care as a parent. Teachers dont call you back, have favorite students, pre shool tutorial is a joke(they just tell you to sit there and read your notes) teachers dont notify parents if child fails a test or require parent to sign test so child doesnt have to show parent bad mark. Teachers dont give students specifics on what to review before tests. I could go on but...
this school gave me depression and the teachers descriminate a lot of students like ms decarlo. they dont help certain kids. thank god i left this school. i wish i passed the dyker test to get in their school. (they also dont care about bullying). dont let these reviews decieve you.
I AM CURRENTLY AT MY LAST YEAR . I AM GRADUATING THIS YEAR . I HONESTLY HAVE TO SAME THIS SCHOOL IS GREAT! THE TEACHERS MAKE LEARNING FUN AND ENJOYABLE . THE TEACHERS HELP YOU LEAD YOU INTO THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND MORE . THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPLES ARE TRULY DOWN TO EARTH PEOPLE . THE SCHOOL ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT YOU DOING THE RIGHT THINGS IN LIVE .I WILL MISS THIS SCHOOL :-)
