My son is in the 7th Grade and has had a wonderful experience in the school. He has matured into a wonderful well rounded student since entering the school in the 6th Grade. The principal is wonderful and the teachers are dedicated to helping the students.
Based on the behavior of the kids as they're dismissed onto Dekalb Ave, not good.
I attend this school at a 8th grader. I think that this school is awesome with a great cirricular. As long as you get to know everybody, its like you are all brothers and sisters.
I think that 113 has opened my eyes that i can follow my dreams in big ways. As a 6th grader just coming to the school they have helped us to reach the goal we have started. My principal Mr.Kirkland opens our eyes to show us that we can achieve our goals. I'm in Technology and it has been every great. Our 6th grade ELA and Math teacher have taught us that we can understand things easier to solve a hard problem.
My daughter goes to 113 and I love how they teach her new ways of sloving a hard problem!!!
I must say tjis school is great. I am a7th grader in the academy of performing arts it has been so far the best experience of my life. In 6th grade i had the chance to go on the college tour which opened my eyes to my future. My teachers are incredible, i am even getting prepared to take the math a regents and trust me i have alot of confidence i willl pass. This school is great!
i think the school is ok. The teachers are ok its just a couple of students that might give the school a bad name.
i sent my child to this school . this school is the worst place to send your child . so just take my advice and don't send your child to this horrible school. don't trust there lies.
I am a parent of a student who attends Ronald Edmonds Learning Center - MS 113. He is in the Fine Arts and Design program and is receiving a quality education that focuses on the arts while at the same time promotes high academic standards. Next year my son will take the Math A, US History and Earth Science regents in grade 8! I cannot begin to tell you about the amazing support my family has received from both the administration and all of his teachers. My daughter is now in grade 5 and I look forward to her attending RELC next year. I highly recommend this school.
My child was accepted into Arts and Performing Arts program after passing and entrance exam and audition in the 2005. However, the 'leave no child behind' act allowed pupils not qualified to be there entrance. RELC is no longer the perfect haven for arts/science education it once was. There is little in the way of learning going on there because of lack of support by the admins. for the teachers. The school lacks intolerance for misconduct. The incoming class for 2005 has been described by teachers as a bad bunch. There is a lot of finger pointing going between parents, admins. and staff and in my opinion this school is a sinking ship. Forget about the arts --academics first. Classes are overcrowded, core academics is lacking and no language for arts' students. I feel cheated. Teachers are brilliant but exhausted.
I used to go to RELC, and i graduated in 2004. I am now a sophomore at a college preparatory high school, Asa Philip Randolph Campus High school at City College. I was a student in the Fine Arts and Design program (SFAD). And I have to say, that if it wasn't for my experience at 113, or the teachers pushing me, I might not be at the school I'm at today, let alone to have been fully prepared for what was thrown at me. For the parents who are reading this, you have to fight to get your children in this school! It's imperative that you do that. Your child has the opportunity to go to one of the best, if not, the best, junior high school in NYC. The teachers are great, the staff is very caring and protective, the school is just great! Trust me! -Kemisha Bascombe, 16
My child was in the Fine Arts and Design program at RELC and graduated in 2005. Others programs are Academy of Performing Arts (APA) and Environmental Summit and Technology (ESAT). My experience with the principal and most of the teachers was positive. Education is first at RELC. The children are encouraged to be the best they can be. At RELC there is Celebrating Success, which recognizes the achievements of the students, Cultural Awareness Day which celebrates all cultures, College Tours and other events.
I am used to go to Ronald Edmonds Learning Center. I am currently now a senior in High School. This Middle School is very good. The principal is very dedicated and always on top of everything. It really helped me get to High School. I am now one of the top 20 seniors. This school made a difference in my life.
Ronald Edmonds is an excellent School. The Principal Has faith in strength in all her students and staff. The teachers take the time with their students to help them with weaknesses and strengths. Ms. Corbett is a top notch Principal who knows how to run and handle her school. I recommend you choose Ronald Edmonds for your childs Middle School.
