This school s the worse!!!! Teachers n faculty ignore how disrespectful the kids are, bullies r there to do whatever they want n to whoever they want!!!!!
I am very, very SAD of my son's decision on wanting to leave this school, I found this school to be one of the best schools in the area, and all I can say is that while my son was attending to this school (6grade) every single staff was involved in his academic studies, discipline, and personal development. Thanks to the principal, teachers and the dean staff that did a great job; my son became more confident, focus minded, and responsible. Although, the other school he will be attending is not bad at all and is closer to our house, I will miss this school a bit time. I wish I can change his mind, but I can't force him to stay. P.S 185 Keep up the good work, you are the best!!!
I fell in love with this school when myself and child when to the open house. My child was selected to attend this school as my child goes his 6 th grade we both see how wonderful is this school . My child loves the teachers and students. The school had alot to offer . AWESOME SCHOOL !
My son loves this school. I'm sad that he has to move on. I wish he could continue to go here through high school. The principal is top notch, on the ball and really gets it. I'm saddened to read another review that a child was being bullied and cried everyday. I feel like that issue needs to be addressed, although my son has never experienced this, that should not happen to any child. He doesn't see fights often either as the other child did. I guess it depends on what grade and class you're in. All around a good education with caring teachers and a friendly environment.
I was part of what was the first class to go all through this school. I moved out to Centerport, NY and didn't complete middle school here. It was a wonderful school with lots of promise and I really enjoyed my time here. From the ratings and reviews it seems to have lived up to it's promise. Is there an alumni site for this school?
the students like to bully my friend and disrupts the class almost eveyday. the deans treat them nicely anddoesnt seem to take any action. my friend cries to me everyday because of how they treat her. the teacher seems to be very caring and understanding to her though. the education is great but the way the principal, dean, and the most students is unfair. fights are also happening almost every week.
You Hear This School Is Amazing But You Don't Know How Much Until You Actually Tried It! Better Than I Expected To Be!
WOW ! This School Is Amazing! No School Could Beat This One. JHS185 Edward Bleeker Is The Best School Any Child Could Be Sent Into. It Has Organized Activities That Made School Fun For Every Student Learning In It. My Child (Who Used To Be The Most Lazy Student I Knew) Did Better In School Ever Since She Came Here. All Teachers Are Amazing And Are Patient With All Students. This School Has High Expectations In All Academics But The Teachers Teach In Ways That Are Cannot Get Easier/Better. Staff Treat Kids Wonderfully. My Child Loves This School Which Makes Me Feel Great That She's In A Secure And Fun Learning Environment.
this school is the best school in the universe! boys and girls actually enjoy being here. my child is a lazy student and this school motivated her to good in school. there is a variety of activities that students enjoy. the teachers are excellent. my child was crying it was the last day today. the teachers enjoy doing their job and they do it with pleasure and effort. they explain what kids need to know correctly and they show that they could do anything they can to help a student succeeded. teachers treat students with respect and they have a lot of patients. this school cannot get any better. i love how the school is organized. the staff help students with any problem they have. my child feels really safe in school. the guidance counselor gives excellent advice and that can help each and every student out in the future. there is no negative stuff in this school... its the best of the best! my child describes it a home away from home. i cannot be more satisfied.
Love being here. Had some really great teachers and there were so many fun organized events to do throughout my three years here. Top notch school
My son is in the 6 grade honors class. All of his teachers are very nice & seem enjoy teaching ! ( that shows a lot !!) I'm really not in the school very much , but I do live in the area. It seems to me, that their has been an improvement since they changed the school's grades from 7-8-9 ....to.....6-7-8-. I just think that kids that do care about their studies are put under pressure too do even better i';s not HIGH SCHOOL ! I feel that if a child is falling behind in a subject ,that a parent should get a phone call ASAP!! ..Before it's too later & they fail a subject ..But I guess that that is a problem anywhere . All in all, I am glad with my son's 6 grade school year so far , & I hope things remain that way =)
My daughter and I are very pleased with JHS 185 Edward Bleeker School.My daughter is in 6th grade and I am satisfied with the way teachers share their knowledge with students.Safety procedures are acceptable and i feel safe to send my daughter.
My child and I have been extremely pleased with our experience at JHS 185 Edward Bleeker Aspires Magnet School since her enrollment in 6th grade Sept 2009. The principal is always available and interested in the students' needs. Her team of teachers are excellent. It is not uncommon to hear teachers telling those they encounter that JHS 185 is a very special school, one of the best, certainly a great place for our children to learn and grow. And my child and I agree 100%.
This school is excellent i think everyone should go to this JR High School. The staff is great and take great care and listen to all of us. Are you going to listen to a parent or a student who actually goes there.
This school's administration needs an overhaul. Their educational ideas are in the dark ages. The treat children with special needs with harshness. The school treats children like prisoners and the principal is the ward and the parents have to obey her command. The principal believes her staff and has no interest in listening to the children or the parents. On a positive note, there are some really excellent teachers in that school. It is too bad the administration is ruining it.
