This principal is an insufferable incompetent, suited for a dictatorship in the Banana Republic. She has no respect for the students and limited knowledge on the educational process. I feel bad for the very talented staff of educators who, in general, seem to care about the students and seem intent on furthering their minds. I sincerely hope the DOE reviews the situation carefully and removes her.
This is a great school with highly professional , respectfull staff ,who always help student to reach thier goal, and help parents under stand every thing about thier children acadimic proformance
The teachers really help students reach their highest potential and prepare them big time for high school. It's a very tough school, and the teachers are very strict. That's what's so great about I.S. 30!!
I am a new student as I.S.30 ( as a 6th grader ) I love everything, I was really nervous about the first day, and the teachers and faculty helped everyone so much. I love this school!
This school has the potential but right now needs much improvement. The teachers have too much control over administration and many of the teachers are not qualified. My child did not advance academically he regressed. I do not reccomend the superintendents program because it is non existent. There are too many problem children and the gifted program suffers. If you are going for the gifted program forget it, your child will get no enrichment.
The teacher s are great and faculty is very nice, but the gym is like a ten foot basement and the lunchroom isn't much bigger. The lunch is very disgusting, so if you go to IS 30 bring a packed lunch! Overall, this school is Ok, but some teachers are very mean and there are a lot of bad kids for such a small school.
It's a great school besides the fact that it's small.The classes are okay.The only other bad thing is the lunch, most kids bring their lunch with them. The staff is very cooperative and nice.
Today was my first day at this school because I transfered from another school. I was very nervous. I thought I will be bullied. So the day passed and I found out that this really is like the best JHS in brooklyn. I am serous, they made a new gym and science lab. They are giving us labtops to keep for the whole year! The teachers are sooooo nice. The students are very freindly. It is a very safe inviorment. I am soo glad I transfered!
i think i.s 30 is on eof the best junior high out there. i was the president in that school and i highly recommand it to parents and incoming freshmans. when i left the school i cried with me teachers and the students. its like the facult is like family to me.
This school has a major bully problem and nothing much is done about it. What's special: An affiliation with Outward Bound. Downside: Facilities are limited; no gymnasium or outdoor yard.
It is a good school, and the small size allows children to recieve alot of attention. It also offers a lot of great programs for students.
I am a former graduate of IS 30. I feel it has done a lot for me, and gave me a great educational base to start high school with. It is a small school, where everyone knows each other. It was a great environment for me to grow and develop. Highly recommend.
