My child attends Acheivement First.. Her enrollment was the best thing that could have happened ... The staff is very involved and concerned and the principal knows every child by first name basis!! When my child entered Acheivement first she was below her grade level the teachers worked with her closely gave her the confidence she lost in public school. It is one of the best Charter schools in the area.

I would not recommend this Charter School to any parent. My son is very bright. He was on honor roll from the time he went to this school to the time he left this school, but it had nothing to do with this school. He had always loved school and because I am such a disciplinary parent he maintained his grade average at all times, but going to this school he got major headaches. I was told at one point that the school was going to remake my son. I DID NOT GIVE THEM ANYTHING BROKEN. I gave them a well laid foundation that they just had to build upon. But these high school acting teachers keep punishing him, putting him in detention, suspension, and extension and keeping him out of class were he could not learn the instructions of the school day due to these vindictive "teachers." If you or your child are self-thinkers or self-motivators, this school is not for you because knowing right from wrong only gets them punished more especially boys. Have you ever asked yourself why year after year teachers are leaving and being replaced by more incompetent teachers who over plan the curriculum but could never get it finished to the point where 8th grader could not take regents this year?SHAME

It's a great school with dedicated teachers and staff.... Only parents complaining are those who can't discipline their own kids and get upset when teachers have to..

Let me start by saying, "I love this school". The teachers and administration are excellent. They constantly provide feedback and support that makes it easy for us to help improve our children's work. While my 7th grader seems to prefer detention more than coming home after school, educationally he is doing quite well. His understanding of math and science concepts is on a higher level than his actual grade. His reading needs improvement but If I can get him to enjoy reading, I believe his grades in Social Studies will improve. Don't get me wrong, he has an 83 average, but I would like it to be higher. My 1st grader is excelling in all areas and she truly enjoys going to school each and every day. She will dress herself for school even when she is too sick to attend. She is upset that she can't go to school during the summer. Thank goodness they gave her enough work to do over the vacation and she has her classmates address and will write them all summer long. I love this school.

Take note of this advise this school it is one of the worse charter school all they care about is punishing young black students for the slightest little infringement that is normal for them to make at this age .... The kids spend 8hours in a room they call the ISS room on punishment were they are not thought the lesson of the day ..... and if they do bring them they work said teachers do not collect and mark they work in the grade book so many kids are failing their grades due to so much punishment and all the teacher tells you is that they're not doing their work which is a lie. What they are not telling you is that your child has been single out by these teachers to be punished to be chastised to be Demean to be bullied till your child feel like they are criminals on the street..... And talking about Criminal on the street your child will be put in detention for 4 hours on Friday And Saturday with teachers walking up and down the aisles monitoring them And given out more referrals in detention for more detention ......parents not even you can sit for .....4hours this is mental and physical abuse that theyre doing to our kids

This school is not an effective place for learning. It refers students for simple little things and keeps them out of class so that students do not get the lesson for the day, leading to failing grades.Also, the children do not have a voice in this school even though this school claims that they do, and when some students try to use this voice, it is then that these students are retaliated against and given consequences.

This school is a wretched place to teach and to learn. The kids hate it. The new principal only seems to care about test results. Staff turnover is high. Old reviews boost the rating.

It should be noted that reviews listed from 2009 and before were based on a completely different school model than what they are using now. Also, the principal was changed when the system was changed; as was done for each of the AF locations that instituted this new 'behaviour modification model' The woman who spoke of a few strict teachers, well let's just say they decided to go with their theology on classroom mgmt it seems. My student is a highest honor student and has never served they're very easy to earn detention, but he is still affected by the penal environment... walking hunched over in fear of 'messing up' he became a basket case that spent so much emotional energy trying to 'be right' all day at school that when he came home his brain just shut off- he was a basket case.

While the school does have minor issues with some teachers that are overly strict it is one of the best schools in the city and was even listed as one of the top 5 middle schools in NYC in an article published by the NY Daily News. How anyone could rate this school less than a 4 is beyond my understanding.

I feel that Achievement First Endeavor is a great school. All the staffs there shows great concern when come to the students education. We have a great principal who cares about each students and also make his teaching staff feel appreciated.
