I have not been pleased with Brooklyn Amity's performance in my child's education. It's a private school but it feels like a boot camp for my child. She deserves a much better education and should be treated with respect. I have read a previous review by a parent, yes the school has paintball but girls aren't allowed to play, because of their gender. The teachers don't respect the students and I think some changes need to be done, and if there isn't no changes done I don't think anyone will go there anymore.
Education in our family plays a very important role. My responsibility as a mother is preparing my kids for life and providing them with the best opportunities. We would like to thank all of the faculty members for making it possible. Everyone here is simply wonderful. We frequently have the pleasure and opportunity to talk to Vice Principal Bill O Reilly who is extremely attentive. He always shows enormous devotion and concern as to how to improve my son s future in order to ensure passage to the most prestigious universities. Vice Principal Vahit Sevinc has made a great impact on the school by keeping it safe and respectful. It is really most extraordinary to see the individualized commitment to each and every student, a task which may seem impossible to others comes to him with ease and genuine pleasure.
My son went to 7 & 8th grades at Amity, after having a pretty casual education at a local junior high school. Our reasons for transferring were to have him receive the best preparation for specialized high school entrance exams. With the emphasis on science and math, he received advanced and quality education as well as free tutoring on the weekends. The tutoring was geared specifically for the entrance exams as well as various competitions - Science Olympiad, Math Counts and SimCity. When/if there was any free time, they would be taken on school trips(FBI building) and extracurricular activities such as paintball! He was also able to play in the school band to cheer on the NY City Marathon runners when they ran thru Brooklyn. Parent involvement is a must with Amity. The teachers have your number on their speed dials! Results for us- our son is in Brooklyn Tech now!
