I am a student at this school and this school isn't that bad. I will be attending as a Senior this year. The guidance counselors won't always pay attention to one student because they have 200+ students to worry about. Make it your business to get their attention. The teacher do have to deal with rude kids and sometimes the kids have to deal with rude teachers but that happens in a lot of high school. Our new principal has worked hard to change our school unlike the old one which I saw very little of my years in the school. If you're around the right group this school won't be hard, if you join programs like CCPI you can ask other students that are in your grade and student that have already taken the class for help. There are always options just depends on how you use these options.
This school isnt good at all. Im currently in the 9th grade and i cant wait til my mom switches me to another school. I feel stressed all the time and when i come home from school i dont feel like going back the next day. Its really a nightmare for me. Students are always fighting and disrespecting the teachers. Some teachers are disrespectful to the student and dont really care about the students education.
The school isn't good. I'm a current student and I don't like it. I don't look forward to going to school. Its' crowded, people are rude, guidance counselors don't have time for anyone, and they have us on lock down. I feel like a prisoner more than a student. It's a very rough school to say the least. Theres fights all the time and some of the teachers don't have time for extra help like after school. Don't get me wrong, the school is very good at pushing you to succeed, but too much pushing isn't good. I'm stressed all the time and I don't feel like the school cares for me personally. A ton of graffitti on the desks.STAY AWAY!
I have been fortunate to supervise and train several students from A Philip Randolph Campus High School as tutors in my After School Program 'Creative Learning Center' in Manhattan for several years. The guidance and education which they receive there is preparing them for the future in their personal lives and potential careers.
I go to this school an i don't like they give out information to late ,guidance consular don't give us any guidance they don't have time for students theirs to many people in the school
This school is absoultly amazing! The teachers are excellent and want my kid to succed! A #1 school!
This Is A Very Educated School It Has Very Good Grades!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i am a freshman at this school and i would have to say it is very good,people are very friendly nuttiing bad to say so far the courses are pretty easy but may get harder but overall a very good school,good college based school class of 2012
i currently attend randolph and this school isnt as good as people say it is. its over crowded and the teachers bearly want to teach us, they always try to find an easy way out. the guidence consulers give us no gudience at all. they never have time to see us if we come to their office. the academic level of randolph overall is not good. it went from being 3rd on the top ten school list to not being on there at all. if it was up to me i would go to a different school until the academic level is back up and there's a new A.P of security.
the school makes sure that you do not slack every time you are absent they call your parents and when you are late they call your house too this school is very good but sometimes i feel teachers do not give alot of effort other than that it is good,also everybody is very friendly and it is easy to make friends
this school is pretty fun, and i haven't had much fun learning as i did in a philip randolph anywhere else. some of the teachers may be hard to deal with, and kids starting fires in the school may not be the greatest thing a school may come across, but this school was made for people with the motivation to go to college. if you do not want to go to college, than this is not the school for you
Great school they have kind and caring teacher's, staff, reat principle and i know my child will come home with something new each day
This school give out information late. They do not have an organation when it comes to handing out papers
I am a senior at this school and I feel that it has realy prepared me for cllege. The new classes coming in seem to be making the school dumb down but most students are very smart. At times the school can feel a little overcrowded but overall it is a great school.
This school is way over crowded.The courses are hard just for a freshman.I can barley understand what there teaching me.You must extra smart to at randolph.
The school is over crowded. Teachers and guideance counselors dont have time for one with the kids. The school need to be divided.
I am an alumni of A. Philip Randolph and this school is on its way to being the Stuyvesant of Harlem.
I am an alumni of Randolph. I am forever in debt to Randolph for the preparation I was given. Because of Randolph, I didn't experience a real challenge in my undergraduate studies until my junior year. The curriculum was rigorous, the teachers were thoughtful and caring and the other students were very studious and competitive, making the school in my opinion..spectacular. -Shanika B.
Right now Im a junior at APR and its been really fun lately. The classes are too full though so the teachers are too busy to really focus on you as an individual. I take one AP class which is American History and its cool. We get in depth with it so we learn alot more than honors or regular U.S. History. Theres alot of extracurricular activities like dance groups,cheerleading,choir and alot of sports teams. The parent involvement for what I can see isnt really all that. I mean most of my friend's parents dont even come to PTA meetings. The worst thing about this school is that theres alot of gossip always going around. If its not one rumor its the other. It really brings the school down.Still APR rocks. Class of 2008!
An excellent school. With various Adavanced Placement courses ( AP Bilogy, Psychology, Physics, MacroEconomics, Calculus U.S History etc), Randolph offers students a golden opportunity to enrich themselves with knowledge while they get experiences of what the college course load is like. There are also numerous clubs and sport teams to join. For eexample one could join the step team, West Indain DVD etc. Or one could opt to the soccer team, track tea, swim team etc. graduate of 2006 st
