I went to this school. I am now 18. I mean my experience at this school was alright. Although my brother also went to this school, he is now 21, and my mother had complained that a teacher was picking on him. The students were told that if they weren't to do the homework they wouldn't be able to go to the trip the next day, and he was exited to go. But on the day his hw was checked he says she ripped it up and threw is out! My mother was so furious, as she had checked his he the night before, she went to speak to the school but nothing was done. All they did was tell my mom that the teacher said she was sorry and now she'll allow him to go on the trip. Of course my mom refused to let him out of the school with her. I mean it all depends on the teachers you get. There are good, bad and very bad teachers. Yikes.

I had the worst experience in this school with my child in third grade, really bad, the worst part is when They don't take responsability, It is always student or parent fault. I agree with "i go to this school and i have to say this is ONE OF THE WORST SCHOOLS ever because the students create cliques at this age and that leaves kids out.there have also been bullies physically harming students beacause of the way they dress talk and look and the types of music,the way they put their hair they bully them just because their like that,I RECOMMEND THAT if you want to place your child into that school you should not do that,the teachers are very aggressive with the students,ive heard a report that a teacher smacked a students hand with her ruler.this is one of the horrible schools in corona i recommend you to shut down this school!!!! "

I love that school I was there most of my life and every one there became a family together as one.The teachers treat th students with respect even to the Class clown! Nobody was ever lonley yes there were cliques but we all still got along fine. There were nobody ever had to go through something alone .It was a fun time there and all the trips were fun and educational .Towards the last year of school every forgot there problems and just merged as one everyone talked to every one we became a family just by having the time of our youth going we where together for every thing.The teachers talked to the students with humor a family the principal visiting us all as a relative we are a big family there even if were not there anymore every one who ever went there lefted a long lasting glow and mark that changed the school in a little unique way for every pupil there.

I go to this school and it is very good. I Got full marks on the math state tests because the teachers were very good and nice and they also teach good. Also, the school is very good because people don't get beat up. The principal is nice to.

As a teacher, I love this school. There is a diverse student body, and the students are very sweet and loving. They are very apprieciative and love school because between the staff and students there is a sense of community. Learning IS going on here despite the large population and language barrier.

Good School, great mix of student body.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted January 3, 2005

There 4 mini schools within the school which focus on arts, communications, science, math, bookmaking among others. The school is very diverse. It has a nice collaboration with arts organizations like NY philharmonic, Lincoln Center. They have a fairly new and well funded library. Extracurricular programs include glee club, violin, chess club, sometimes sports like tennis, also dance, music (recorder). Not all children get access to all programs seeing that there's over 2,000 students. This school would really excell if it weren't quite so full. The P.A. is well meaning but misguided and a bit antagonistic towards teachers at times.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
