The school is terrific! The administration is strong and supportive of students. I have three kids in the school presently and they love it. They are learning and enjoying it and that is the goal. The school gives plenty of opportunities for the kids to be involved in many after school activities. The overall atmosphere is friendly and respectful. Parents are always welcomed in the school and kids are well taken care of and trusted which gives the kids self confidence. MS67 is a gem!

Louis Pasteur Middle School 67's standards have become more strict. This year, our school has gotten new textbooks, and they are no longer thick. The curriculum is adapted to the New York State Common Core Standards. MS67 is one of the greatest schools you could ever attend.

This school is awesome! but, lots of people push others and that in the first couple of days, you don't feel really comfortable and not so happy.


Posted September 20, 2012

The leadership and teaching of MS 67 is highly commendable! Having graduated from MS 67 in 2012, I am proud of my principal and my teachers for their contribution in giving me such a strong foundation so as to feel comfortable in a competitive high school. MS 67 maintains a high quality of standard in every respect, whether it is through challenging academic programs, friendly atmosphere, dress code, or after school talent programs. Bravo MS 67, keep it up!

this school is seriously great! I'm going into eighth grade this year and I can honestly say that this school feels like home to me. We're getting a stricter dress code this year and everyone complains about it but I personally dont care. I'm going to hr so sad when I have to leave. I think that this school has the total package! Amazing facilities, great teachers and academics and fantastic students. Of course there are some misbehaved kids but doesn't that happen everywhere? I hate such an emotional attachment to this school and everyone in it. The teachers are reliable and smart and they're just as friendly as they are strict. I love this school in its entirety. Definitely a reccomended school for everyone looking for three unforgettable years.

From the point of view of a student who graduated with flying colors from the Magnet program, I cannot see any reason why 67 should get below a 3 star rating. I was incredibly involved in the assemly-making process, since I monitored for Ms. Dolan, one of the fantastic and amazing teachers at 67, and I saw more than enough gold service cards and received enough deep paper cuts to know that much of this school is neither lazy, nor educationally unprepared for any tests they are required to take. The challenges were great for most of the other kids in my grade last year, but the four star rating is due to a deep-seated loathing of the kids who have infected my favorite school with their high self-opinions and disgusting habits. I'm glad to know, though, that teachers are taking actions against these ridiculous troublemakers who ruined my final year.

I'm an 8th grader at 67 and I love it. Most of my teachers have been great and the students have been nice. I wouldn't have gone to any other Middle School

This school is a very high achieving school. The classes are large but teachers handle the students well. Kids are friendly and nice.

I have an 8th grader in this school. He has been there for the last 3 years. He is generally a quiet young man, athletic and bright. This school has been a horror for the past 2 1/2 years. The bullying is incredible. The teachers give a lecture on bullying and yet it still occurs. Children have fights up the block after school and everyone is aware of it (based on the crowds) yet the teachers have no idea. Educationally, he has been prepared for high school but with a lot of parental input. Many teachers do not call you back when you ask for a meeting. There are of course a few shining educators but on the most part, I think a lot of them have left over the past few years. This school is not the same as it used to be when my older child attended.

I had recommendation from a friend to let my child go to this school. Ever since that my child has been more lazier than ever. I feel that the kids he is around are not great students and the school should have more control.

I am very disappointed in this school. You can never get an appointment with the principal. Some of the teachers leave a lot to be desired. I find that if there is a dispute, the child and/or parent doesn't stand a chance in resolving it. I believe the saying is 'the teacher is always right.'

I love this school! I am in sixth grade now and MS. 67 is soo fun. The eighth graders are nice and also don't bully.

I have a 6th grade student at the school and am very happy with it. The 'new' programming that has mixed student groupings has eliminated the previous elitist environment in the school, allowing all students equal access to the fine curriculum. Also, the exploratory talents program offers a variety of experiences (art, chorus, computers, drama, dance, law, and robotics) that provide enrichment for all students. Mrs. Choit, the 6th grade Assistant Principal, is excellent. I would recommend this school.

Best science department, Biology teachers are incredibly helpful.


Posted November 4, 2008

I attend this school and have been attending it for three years. If I didn't appreciate this school for supporting me for these years, I would not feel graduation nearing and counting the days left that I have to enjoy my last moments with this striving community. No wonder it's one of the top 20 in New York. This school is most definetly not like any other school - it's special in it's own way. The staff work hard to make students enjoy learning and the school environment is disciplined. Why, when I owed a few dollars to the computerized lunch system, I got called down to the dean for a chat! And if you're a parent whose worried about your child's safety in this school, then don't worry about it. We frequently have assembly's on bullying, and school safety. This is a truly significant school for an education career!

A great school! I attended this school when it first started.was in the 3rd graduating class. The teachers were great.I especially remember Mr. Charles Bateman (Social Studies.and his 'prejudice test' (have put this test on the canada.com website, for all to see! Mr. Ratchins, and Mr. Goldberg, the assistant Principles, and wonderful Dr. Nadler, a disrtinuguised principle! I learnt a lot there, and only wish I could go back! ALL the teafhers really taught us! Mr. Parness in Music was wondeful! Sorry if I forgot anyone...you were all the greatest! I know the students there now are carrying on a great tradition of learning and growing in a great envirnment! The Best public Junior High ever.I think even some private schools don't even come close


Posted February 15, 2006

The teachers provide excellent advice when it comes to grades and improvements needed for my daughter. the parents really show they care by being involved in decision-making processes. My daughter benefits from the music and sports programs.

This school has been declining for years. There is very little if any innovation and with the teachers leaving in record numbers it just gets worse. The principal Ms.Fong was one of the only things holding it together and she retired. For a school that has some of the brightest kid's funneling into it,it never achieves a level of greatness.

This school prepared me for high school very well. The friendly environment and great curriculum encourage learning and academic achievement. I am currently a senior at Townsend Harris High School. Yet I still remember the wonderful time I had at Louis Pasteur Middle School.

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. 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.
