As a parent I feel that finally my son is motivated to reach for academic excellence. This academy is very engaged with my son and he tells me how his principal knows who he is by name and how comfortable he feels to just go to his office and have a conversation with him. I have met Mr. Artiles and I think that is the best administration I seen in hempstead in the 10-15 years. There are a lot of changes going on, like they got a new superintendent now and there are lots of rumors going on. The only thing I hope is that they recognize talent and allow Mr. Artiles to do his thing.

Great education going in this small school. I do not know why they do not have better PR. This is like a secret in Hempstead. My child feels challenged and that he is receiving a great education.
