This school is located in downtown Manhattan just outside of Soho. It is a truly amazing school.
Although it took some time to adapt to the technology based learning, my child caught on, became comfortable and loved it. Teachers demonstrate enthusiasm, dedication and a genuine interest in their students and students demonstrate an eagerness to learn. Each and every one of my daughter's classmates/friends are intelligent, mature and respectful kids. The principal, teachers & advisors really show they care about the students and have an open door policy to assist them with questions/needs. Parents are kept in the loop regarding everything that goes on; concerns have always been promptly dealt with. The size of the school allows for a personable and comfortable environment for students and teachers to interact more. Students are assigned a dedicated advisor to guide them, give advice and help track their academic performance with the ultimate goal of sending them off to college. No academic or behavior issue is allowed to slide. It's not perfect but the good definitely outweighs the small kinks that need to be ironed out. So far, this really is a gem of a school with staff that tries hard to do their job well and I hope they continue to grow and to perform well.
It is our child's 1st year at ischool. We were very impressed at the tour with the mission of the school, class choices, teachers and administration. It seems like they offer an amazing program and my child loves it. The only negative is the quality of the kids. Since it's a new school, many of the kids got dumped there after not getting into their other choices because of poor grades or being disciplinary problems. So as a result, there are many kids who seem to be more concerned about doing drugs or drinking before, during and after and school. My child is a very good student and loves school. I hope that as more families learn about ischool and how different and amazing it is compared to most nyc schools, they will get a better quality of child.
