As a alumnus of Transfiguration, I have nothing but praise for the school. Their academic curriculum is excellent and the teachers are really dedicated. Most stay at the school their entire teaching career! My first grade, seventh grade, and eighth grade teachers are all still there. I went on from Transfiguration to Brooklyn Tech, the 'specialized high school' ( if I remember correctly, Transfiguraton can boast that half of their graduating 8th grade class goes on to one of the magnet public schools). I have to say, most of my freshman curriculum in high school was covered in 7th grade. Some drawbacks: 1.the whole religious affiliation thing, although to be fair because most of the students are from a Chinese background...the school is really not all that pro-active in Catholic dogma. 2.The student body lacks diversity. 3. The teachers are very strict.
It's a solid school academically. It's almost all Chinese, though, which doesn't help students adapt to the real world.
its a great school,great teathers,a lot of homeworks and every students try to do the best.Its the school for study person,only lack of sports and music activity.
