this school is pretty bad, they don't teach you the exact common core and there are kids who always distract the class. not a good school in my opinion


Posted January 26, 2011

GREAT SCHOOL. THEIR GOAL IS TO MAKE THEIR STUDENTS #1. I WAS A STUDENT HERE AND NOW MY SONS GO TO SCHOOL HERE. ITS A GREAT PLACE TO BE. YOU ACTUALLY SEE THE PRINCIPAL INVOLVED. AT SOME SCHOOLS YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE PRINCIPAL LOOKS LIKE. AND WE GOT AN "A" LAST YR, AND THE YR B4 THAT.YES I AM A PROUD MOTHER..

I am such a proud parent ! My child has not only met most of the academics but also my child gets the emotional support needed when I am unable to be with he while she is in school . Ms. Nunez (Principal ) , along with Ms. Montano & Ms Brown, Mr. Ramirez & Mr. Barton are all such a spportive staff to all of the children. I have been lucky to have them in my child's life . Placing my child in this school was the best thing I did!

I read the other review and I could not agree more. My son attends this school and I am trying desperately to get him into another school. The classes are large and this year in 4th grade, he didn't learn a thing. Honestly, his teacher never graded any of his homework. This school does a disservice to black and latino children.

My Daughter is only in first grade now, and I believe that she is in need of more attention and reinforcement from her teacher. The truth is to this matter is that the school is over-crowded. The school is over-crowded, the classes are way too crowded, with 28 to 27 students per classes its very hard for students to learn in such an environment. Basically this school should provide a tutor for all of their classes, which they don't. As a parent I'm under so much pressure, because I want to find the right place for my daughter before it's to late. At home we do the homework, but we invest so much time on one subject that is like she have never seen this type of material before in class.

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.

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.
