The teachers CARE! Nuff' said, but I'll add more. The school has as effective and vigorous PTA and general parent involvement as any of the best examples in the country. And the kid's love it there- at all grades!

I love my schools so much, and out of all my schools (i've been to five) I think NEST+m is the best school ever, I even look forward to going to it on the weekends (even though weekends rock!) The teachers are young, (no one over 40...at least for middle school) and very very experienced and smart, one teacher even left for Medical school. Sending your kid to NEST+m is the best choice! GO NEST!!!!!!!

This school is the best in NYC, according to the most recent test scores. Its teachers are terrific and the student population is diverse and do not exude the airs of some other gifted schools.

I've been attending this school since the 6th grade and i just entered my freshman year. 6th grade was my hardest year, but the school itself was amazing. After getting a new principal the Middle School has been extremely unorganized and has not been paid enough attention to. The High School and Lower School are much more organized and are good places to send your kids, although the Upper School is extremely overcrowded, with classes reaching up to 34 students when some have only 10

Love this school. My child started kindergarten this year at Nest and the work is very challenging. There are so many extras that keep the kids engaged like dance, music, art and chess. My daughter is happy and loves going to school every day. I guess my only criticism would be that they go a little easier on the kindergartners and focus more on socialization and play.

We only have been in the school for less than a year but so far, I am not impressed. Math and Science, Art and English are not challenging at all. Teachers and PTA are great and have the children at heart. Hope the level of the school will improve in the year to come. Transportation is really a problem if you don't leave in NYC and the PTA and Administration are absolutly not receptive to any request from the parent. Sad but true for a lot of project.

Our experience in the lower school this past year has been close to excellent. Although the new administration is not as outspoken as the previous one they have made many significant changes that I feel have imporoved the school significantly. The instroduction of 'clusters' where children may select a focus of study was both successful and rewarding. Languages are being introduced next year in the lower school which is somethng the old administration did not feel was necessary and bringing back on site after school will accomadate many working families. I also beleive we are in good hands in regards to the state wide curriculum change integrating science into the classroom. I believe the principal's background in this subject will certainly benifit the school.

NEST+M is the best school in New York City. First of all, all schools should have seemless curriculums, because this builds up the child's knowledge. NEST is the only school in NYC that provides Singapore Math to all children in the lower school, and I chose NEST for this reason. I dont believe that any other kind of math is good for building competence and confidence in math for the rest of the academic career. The Principal is brilliant and weaving her way through exteme BOE dictates while improving every aspect of the school. Bravo! The building and gym as well as dance room/music room are clean and well-lit, and we are extremely happy.

I was also eager to give the new principal a chance, but can now say that she is terrible at leadership, communication and management. This is not the same school. There is no longer any discipline. Before, if your child was in trouble or having difficulties, a note went home with the parent and the situation was immediatly addressed . This is no longer happens for any circumstance. I am concerned about safety next year when they increase the overall capacity of upperschool by 150 students.

We are a family that fought to give this administration a chance. We did, now can give a fair account of their leadership skills. Sorry, not good! The old administration told it like it was, if you don't like it, leave. But it was the truth, no surprises, goodorbad. This administration hangs a carrot in front of you, having you believe they will come through but never do. They feel no need to respond to questions or concerns. There is such a disregard toward parents, but worse, toward the children. Say they want parent participation,then take over with no regard for anyone but themselves, with no communication and lack of appreciation. They take over projects with ill results and expect gratitude.

Despite of name, math and science in school are very basic. Overall school's arrangement suits girls better then boys, which means that many boys are leaving the school. It is a bit unexpected for math and technology specialization.

NEST has been great for my child. He loves all the field trips they take. He loves his teacher, who is energetic and completely dedicated.

My 5 year old daughter started in kindergarten this year at NEST and she loves it. The transition to kindergarten is a difficult one and hers was very smooth. She was supported when she felt nervous and pushed to overcome her nervousness in very appropriate ways. The work load has been perfectly appropriate and it is thrilling to see her deveopment. The 'specials' have been wonderful - music, art, gym, language arts, dance and science. Overall she is thriving. The administration is not very accessible and is definitely onthe defensive side, but the teachers are very accessible and the administration does listen to parents concerns - you just have to figure out the best way to approach them!

My son is thriving at NEST and thinks it is 'the best school in the world.' They are really teaching him how to THINK and how to research. The level of parent involvement is amazing. His teacher is a smart, dedicated and warm professional who is 100% on the ball.

The school has amazing facilities, good academics, and an orderly but not amazingly supprotive atmosphere overall. My child's teachers (kindergarten and first grade) have been quite good. They definitely keep an orderly, quiet and friendly work environment - though not an exgtremely high level of excitement about the academics - at least as my child is concerned. The school's approach is a bit rigid in that they want all kids to develop at the same rate academically. However, overall I have found the school environment safe and conducive to learning. The homework is substantial, but not unbearable. The administration does not communicate in the best way with the school community, but I personally haven't had any problems. There is a very good chess program and other extracurricular activities though no regular afterschool program for lower school kids which is a problem for many.

I love this school. I know that it can be crazy, but my son loves school and the teachers are wonderful. What more could you want out of a public school?

My child is in second grade and is receiving a stellar education and loves school. Her writing and math scores have improved by leaps and bounds and her love of learning and sense of discipline is fantastic. I couldn't be happier.

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.

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 different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
