If you want your child to succeed, i recommend you not send your child to this school. Only a palm full of teachers care about the students and they just sent away some of those teachers due to budget cuts. The high school students set a bad example for the middle school students by introducing them to things they are not to know. Every year the charter school takes over more classes that belong to the middle school. The principal always talks as if the school is the best but its not and she does nothing to change that. If you ask me, all she cares about is the high school and the basketball team. I don't think she is sad that the middle school will be closing in 2015 because of bad grades. The high school is not how a high school should be. It doesn't have enough space, teachers, or resources. They do not provide things that prepare the students for college and the school is highly infested with rats and roaches. When I found this out, I took my child out quick. Save all the stress and do not send your child to Brooklyn Collegiate.
She micro-manage her staff, does not listen to her staff and other faculty members. Lack of collaboration among teachers and other staff members Staff turnover ratio is one of the highest in the area and therefore, affects student s performance. Ms. Sais mission and vision statement does not reflect student s achievement. Lack of Parents support BC need parents to be visible in the school build- help us educate your child/children Parents do not attend PTA or SLT meeting (get involved) five parents at a PTA member does not reflect the total student s population. As a former teacher, Brooklyn Collegiate it breaks my heart-reading parents and students post. I do understand BC has its faults however, I truly believe if parents, teachers, students, and community members collaborate together we can help in saving BC. Parents if you want a good or excellent school you must remember to achieve this it takes all stakeholders. Get involved and help BC become a five star school. Let us not play the blame game
This one the worst schools in the city. Middle school or High school. The principal does nothing when you as a parent try to make an appointment to speak with her, she sends someone else to meet with you. there's a handful of faculty that actually care about the students. the gangs over run the school and they run the halls with their pants hanging down. ms. sais only cares about the basketball team which does other illegal things pertaining to recruiting violations and the students are not very well prepared for the recent exams. my son actually excelled when I transferred him to a different school, it became less stressful for him to maintain his thought process. I'm a parent that disliked this school extremely and wish it apon no other parent!!! This not the school for your child!!!
horrible an deceitful staff i can count on one hand the teachers that are there for the students
This is a horrible school the princpal doesn't get it the dean is unfair if your not a 85 or above or if you don't play for the school basketball team they don't care about you the teachers hold agruge and bad mouth students when they are angry save yourself and your child the heart ache pick another school for them to go to
My son attends Brooklyn Collegiate and he was one of the first boys to attend this school in the 6th grade when they first opened there doors in September 2005. He is now a junior and doing great things in BC. The principal and the rest of the staff at BC are friendly and welcoming. When he graduates next year, he will have graduated from a great school. GO BC LIONS!
As a senior student at brooklyn collegiate i would not recommend sending your child their.I been in the school for 4 yrs and it is just getting worse by the hour,fights,every yr we have new teachers, a number of staffs leaving because of the principal, unsatifactory behavior by students and faculty. The principal just dont get it and shes in the building sporadically.She breaths down the teachers and students neck for no reason and she is all about talks.Nothing in the high school directory is real except the uniform policy.Ms. Sias is not connecting with the sudents nor staff members.As of right now their is no guidance counselors and some of the teachers have a bad attendance.I personally dont care for this school because alot of the good staff left and now we're a sinking ship. No proper foundation and realistic rules and policies. I cant wait to leave that school.
I agree with the other parents, this is a horrible school. I do not reccommend this school. In orientation thhe principal gives you this lond speech how she's for the kid, she has and open door, blah, blah and blah. The jids wear their pants sagging and run around like they are crazy. I am removing my svild from this scholl ASAP!
this school is horrible...... students fighting, bus drivers getting lost, very extremely strict uniform policy
This school is great, they really prepare your child for college, and they assist your child into getting into the college of his/her choice. my son got into some of the top universities in the country, (Fordham University, University of Vermont, Boston University...). some of his classmates got accepted into top schools such as Cornell University, Carnegie-Mellon University, Rutgers University, Penn-State, St. Johns...etc. i definitely recommend this school.
The principal does not care about the students well being...i think she just needs funds for the school so it can stay open...the staff does not make u feel welcomed or wanted at all....even if u try your hardest to pass a class they still fail you...i think it's all about favorites in that school, plus more and more fights break out each day.This is how i feel ,and i know a lot of others feel the same way.
this school is great, it has a great faculty, small student body but yet has some of the finest students in new york state.
