As of August 2013. MS 45 is no longer Star Prep Academy. It is now Harlem Village Academy. it's an elementary, middle, and junior high charter school. MS 45 was removed from the chopping block since February 2013.
I attended this middle school. It was called John Roberts. I managed to get through HS, College and medical school, and attended law school. Typical PR hispanic boy. Went through the USAF and retired. I learned a great deal here. There was only one problem that I remember; bad kids in classes who should be in jail, not in school.
I am a parent of two at this school. For the most part it is a good school with good programs and plenty of teacher supoort. This school has improved greatly throughout the years. I feel more parents need to get more involved with the aspects and regulations with the school. 8th grade portfolios are a requirement for graduation. A portfolio is a compilation of the student's best work for the year. These are used in the event a child who has been doing well all year doesn't do well on the State Tests. The work in the portfolio would be a testament as to the capabilities a student has.
John S. Roberts, is a horrible place. The kids are not serious about their education and the there is pratically no parental involvment.
This school could be a great school if disruptive students could be removed. The teachers are hard working and have a desire to help all students excell. More parental involvement and student consequences are needed
