I find this school to be sub-par. Some teachers are allowed to complain to the students at length rather than teaching. The students are not allowed to bring text books home to review. Spanish teachers would rather kick students out of the classroom and blame problems on the parents. The school counselor is too concerned with defending the teachers rather than listening to parent concerns.
This is a really Great school. My son just graduated, and he was given a lot of advanced classes to match his intellect and develop it. He took a lot of classes in High School, being an 8th grader, he took honors chemistry and trigonometry. Counselors are very proactive, they develop programs fit to each individual child. Teachers are very knowledgeable, friendly. Principal is like a father to students, he even meets students in the mornings near the school entrance. I definitely recommend this school!!!
Teachers, Counselors, Staff Administration, and parents are involved in the education, wellness, and success of their students. IEY has so much to offer their students. It has a well rounded education, sports, and extra curricular activities for our students and they are prepared to meet the challenges of High School.
I Iove this school because it has the best teachers who really care about their students. All 3 of my kids went there and they have really succeded in their lives now thanks to the teachers and staff at IEY. Good Luck
I.E. Young Middle School is one of the most diverse schools in the country with students representing 35 countries. This is a school where kids can truly learn to get along with people from all walks of life -- it's not theoretical, it's what this school is all about. The staff is extremely committed, caring and motivated and the school is filled with art, murals, flags from every state in the U.S. and flags from all the countries represented by the student body. In 2008 Metlife Foundation recognized IEYoung as a breakthrough school for the significant improvement in grades.The 8th grade accelerated biology program also has unique hospital mentoring program where students are assigned to with a doctor who guides them in conducting a library research project in their specialized field of medicine. Students benefit from working closely with medical professionals and the challenge of conducting a year-long research project.
I'm now a 6th grader in Isaac E. Young Middle School and it is amazing. The students are in high levels. The teachers teach nicely and they make the students participate. It makes the school a better place. Isaac is a school that cares. The students love to participate and so do I!
My son, who is now a freshman in HS, was on honor roll the entire 3 years while in Isaac and graduated with honors. I found the staff to be excellent with him and the school does a lot for the honor students. On the other hand, I have a daughter who is still in Isaac, 7th grade, who is in inclusion and even though her teachers were good I felt that inclusion on a whole is treated much differently than the honors students. Some of the teachers expected more out of children in inclusion without looking at the facts that this child needs extra help for a reason and needs re-focusing. On a whole the school is great if your child is motivated and stays away from the wrong crowds. Contact your child's counselor to meet all the teachers and get/give numbers & email addresses. It helps.
