We have been very happy with Salk. It's the kind of school where everyone can find their niche, find friends and somehow fit in. It's cool to be smart and it's not one big fashion show. Many families have a lot of money, but you would never know it, because the vibe is so laidback and down to earth. It just seems like a healthy environment for tweens and young teens. I think the education they are receiving is very good, and the teachers are all smart and hardworking. I do wish they would let the parents know how their children are doing before the parent/teacher conferences and report cards. Most assignments are not returned with grades! Otherwise we don't have any complaints.

One notable thing about Salk is how happy and well-adjusted the kids that attend it are! My son is very happy here. The h/w load is manageable (although, probably like other middle schools, there tends to be ALOT of work all at once right before the end of the marking periods), teachers seem very motivated. The reason for 4 stars is my very negative experience trying to get an issue resolved last year - it took 6 weeks of phone calls and emails before it was addressed (the parent coord. never responded and the admin. in charge of the school did not act until I had to go outside of school to get help) - very disappointing. Heard from several other parents who had similar experience . Perhaps this will improve now that the principal is back from the sabbatical? The guid. counselor, on the other hand, is excellent - professional and proactive!

Not all of us can pop into meetings during the business day on one day's notice. I did email the principal to ask. Again, a school where teachers speak with improper grammar, making the mistake just corrected in the lesson, math teachers routinely make arithmetic errors and children are screaming daily is not wonderful.

Excellent school. We have nothing but positive things to report from our 7th grade daughters experience. I believe if the parent below (April 17) would have attended the meeting where the principal discussed her sabbatical she would have a better understanding of the timing of her leave. This was a meeting open to all families. We love Salk!

Salk has a great curriculum. The humanities are good, sciences are excellent, and though math is a little off, drama and other subjects make up for it. I am only a sixth grader, so I don't know TOO much. Though I am going to Hunter next year, I have found many great friends, caring and cooperative teachers, and projects that show creativity, but challenging. We also don't get much homework!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still, class time makes up for it. I find Salk kind of easy, but others I know have found it challenging. Also, there are so many activities and events going on that you will never get bored during/after school. Plus, outlunch is a bonus!

My school is small and filled with teachers who are happy to teach there. and are passionate about what they do. Homework is not just busy work. Assignments are thoughtful and creative. Salk offers many opportunities for parental involvement. Leadership is impressive.

My daughter is an 8th grader at Salk and it has been a wonderful experience for her. The curriculum is stimulating and the teachers thoroughly engage the students. This middle school well prepares students for high school.

I love SALK! I go to SALK and I just love it! I love the fact that the teachers are so nice and engaging. I love the lessons! For example, in 6th Grade, we had to write an Egyptian story, based off of research, and then turn it into a short play. We also do a ton of hands on Science experiments! The school focuses on Math, Science, and Humanities. The homework is a good size, not too much, but enough to keep you interested and remembering the lesson. I love SALK for it's teachers, lessons, and amazing events!


Posted October 13, 2012

I go to this school and it is like the best school ever! I knew from the beginning that is was going to be great. The teachers are so awesome and I have a great time in all of my classes while I learn so many new and interesting things just in the first month. It is such a lovely school and the people there are just so amazing. I highly advise going to Salk!!


Posted September 27, 2012

As a student at Salk I think it is the best school ever! The teachers are kind and understanding and I have learned so much! I would not want to go to any other school!


Posted December 20, 2011

this school really rocks!!! My sister went there and it was awesome. Now I'm going there and it is still awesome!!! I do cross country and my best friend does glee. Can you believe it, they have glee. The teachers are so funny and nice, and they really know how to teach kids. I wish I could rate this school a 10 but sadly the highest I can rate it is a 5.


Posted January 5, 2011

Salk is a wonderful school with a welcoming and well thought out learning enviornment. When I first toured the school, I was struck with how happy and relaxed the students seemed. We're delighted that our son is at Salk. The teachers are responsive, the curriculum encourages creative thinking and problem solving, and the envviornment stresses collaboration and the joy of learning. Although the school stresses science, drama,technology, the arts, and sports are also a part of a very enriched curriculum.

this is a great school where you are constantly challenged and learn something new and interesting every day! The teachers, especially in 7th grade, are excellent and are always open to hearing your ideas and there to help you! It's awesome!

The work at salk was intensive and exciting. The small size of the school guarantees that each student will find time to talk to any teacher when they wish. There were also plenty of activities to entertain the students such as movie day. As a graduate of class of '06 who has revisited the school many times since, I can vouch for the continuous and visible improvements to the school.

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 2012-2013 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. 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.
