This school is too chaotic to aptly support student growth and development. This principal is not up to the challenge of running a high school full of English Language Learners and students with Individualized Education Plans. Instead of focusing on teacher quality and student achievement, she focuses on micromanaging and intimidation of staff and students alike. It is not a happy place to work or to try and learn. Discipline is greatly lacking as is consistency of scool policies. The school sorely needs new leadership. The students who attend are lovely and there is a group of hard working teachers, but without solid direction, those staff and students who are disruptive and not hardworking cause too much chaos for other students to excel. A high school simply cannot survive with the graduation rates and credit accumulation seen at the GLC.

This small High school is nowhere near terrible. I am I current graduate of this school and I can truly say that I completely enjoyed my experience. The teachers here really care about their students and their main priority is to get students ready for the regents and for college. The principal really wants to be 1 on 1 with you and she fulfills that task everyday. If you're failing a class or a regents she will talk to you 1 on 1 just like you would with a friend. I think that is the best quality of a principal. In this school all you really have to do is your work and you will end up with a diploma 4 years later. IT IS REALLY NOT THAT HARD. If you want to attend a High school with a sound community, great opportunities, and college readiness I recommend this school. It's really all about putting in your 2 cents and letting the teachers handle the rest. As long as you cooperate and are serious about your education and your future you will succeed. This school will shape you into the adult you need to be and prepare your mind for the hard work ahead. Do not underestimate this small school. It is growing larger as the years go by and it will shape it's students into greatness.

Global Learning Collaborative is a remarkable place. If your son or daughter thrives in a small school with terrific teachers, GLC is a great match. Academics are taught in a supportive environment with teachers staying after school each day if anyone needs extra help. Along with the regular high school curriculum is the amazing and inexpensive addition of travel incorporated into the curriculum. The Upper West Side has needed small quality high schools, and GLC is paving the way.

About the tests

Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
