This school has improved so much in the past year. All of the staff members are willing to stay after school and give up their lunch and free periods to help their students succeed. They spend their own money buying supplies such as pencils and paper, even though the students are supposed to come prepared already. The only problem is that the students are not willing to come after school or during the day to catch up on their work. Very few parents make the effort to come up to the school to check on their child's progress. Need to improve on parent-teacher involvement.
I would like somebody give a more recently review of this school, we are moving to this neighborhood and don't want to travel 20 minutes everyday. They are attending an excellent school. One will be in middle school next year and other in elementary school. They are excellent students. what would be the recommended schools around it? Thanks.
IS 291 is on the path to great accomplishments. Quality Review ratings have improved tremendously over the past 2 years and we have presently been removed from the NYS SURR list. Students are exposed & offered many activities & experiences outside the realm of a modern school day. (e.g. skiing & snowboarding trips, Broadway plays etc) Parental involvement still needs to improve, along with parent/student accountability.
