Just click on "test scores" tab. For 2012 you can see that only 67% passed the ELA test. That's horrendous. I am taking my daughter out of this school!!

I thought this school was good and I defended it. I am so upset that many of the high schools view this school as having a very mediocre curriculum and that many students who have been assessed for various high school programs or have taken the specialized tests did very poorly. This is a reflection of all the lies that I have put up with and it hurt nobody but my child. Do not send your kid if you want your kid to flourish and excel because when they get out into the real world they will be an average joe, not the outstanding over achievers that this school pretends to have.

Well, well all th ehorror stories are true. The kids who are here from the beginning are almost out and that is a blessing. The teachers are inexperienced and only teach to have their student loans paid off(contract deal). I want a school where there is a passion to teach and this is not the one. The girls are being mentally abused and it is a shame that parents do not stand up to it in fear of having to rearrange their travel schedule. I would not recommend this school to anyone and look forward to June 2013 so that my daughter is out for good. This is only a business looking to make money - the girls have the weakest curriculum that I have had experts look at. Do your child a favor that will impact her future - keep her away from this school that should be scored and "F"

Have visited many charter schools around the city and the Bronx and this one is the worst by far! No rigorous education, teachers are inexperienced/out of touch, the administration is non existent, and there is no student discipline code. Students are allowed to speak to adults how they please/rude and nothing is supposed to be said or address the issue. The child tells the adult how that made them feel??!! Honestly, a 4th grader who has been rude/disrespectful many times to an adult has no say!!! Positive reinforcement needs to take a back seat and bad behavior should not be tolerated by a student! Could care less about your feelings! School is weak and the website is misleading! Of course!

Girls Prep is an extraordinary opportunity for a very challenged, financially strapped community in the LES. The quality education our daughters receive free of charge, is comparable to high prices private prep schools in this city. My daughter was reading in December of her Kindergarten year, has increased self confidence and self worth, and has internalized the 4 core values in 1st grade. There is also a wonderful opportunity for parents to participate in class and Unity meetings. Count your blessings, parents, and stop complaining!

Be Warned has hit the nail on the head. This has been going on for two years now. If fundraising is your happy feet dance then you really haven't done your homework as to the scores these girls are really at. Pay close attention to what was said in last year's comments all those "pioneer" parents know what they are talking about.

Dear Be Warned. I am a very satisfied parent of a scholar that attends GP. I can attest to the fact that the Teachers are not only caring, but also skilled, who on a daily basis provides our daughters with the skills to succeed, & have our daughters best interest. As for school fundraisers you as a parent have a choice to participate or not to participate, your daughter still benefits. Funds raised from fundraisers provide numerous activities for the students. Last year funds raised in the Elementary school were used to provide each scholar with a holiday gift, the CC hosted a free holiday party, they sponsored the 4th grade Stepping Up Ceremony & provided each 4th grader with parting gifts all free of charge. They also co-sponsored the Spring Fair, and numerous other events. All money raised goes right back to the scholars. The same goes for the MS; recently the PTA hosted a "Women of the Decade Party, FREE to our scholars. So far all money raised this year has been used to purchase needed books due to the abrupt relocation. Having Fundraisers help the PTA/Community Council create a fun environment for the scholars & aid in building the school culture.

BE WARNED, as many other reviews have said. This school comes off caring...once they have a their seats filled they don't care for the students rights or parents rights...many parents feel this way. We all were excited to have our daughters join girls prep for Merritt and sisterhood. Well, that was short lived. None of the staff is responsible. Many students are below reading and math levels from bad teaching and no one really cares, misplaced funds, then too many fund raisers, CEO only there to protect his failing school. Don't waste your time here.

Love the structure of the school. The students are being prepared not only for high school but for the world of work and the academics of college. Girls Prep is the student's home away from home. It is truely a family atmosphere.

"Girls Prep is an extraordinary opportunity for all young womyn. My daughter in a short amount of time has benefited tremendously from attending Girls Prep. I believe that my daughter will be successful throughout her academic career because of what she attains at Girls Prep."

The school year has just begun and so far my daughter has not given me any complaints. I have spoken to her teachers and it seems like she is going to have a better school year this time. As far as the rating goes, i will edit at another date.

Comment 2 of 2 I want to take this opportunity to tell the world how very much impressed I was by the entire school staff on the first 2 days of school. While this is my second year being a part of GP, this was the first time I was able to see and appreciate all of the hardwork that goes into the preparation of welcoming the families. In addition, the first week is always busy and hectic, but every faculty and/or staff member that I encountered during the first two days took time out to talk to me, assist me, and answer any questions I had. THIS WAS ALL DONE WITH A SMILE! The first two days confirms what I have been thinking since last year: The GP staff is a family of educators and nurtures that continue to do an amazing job because it comes from their hearts. This type of commitment and environment starts from the top and can only continue if parents reinforce this with their children and with other parents. If it's not clear yet, let me reaffirm: GP is more than just a school!

Girls Prep is not the school it was or the school it could be.The past two years have been disorganized and unproductive as far as the education of the chlldren is concerned. This is reflecte in the test scores.Quite a few parents have pulled their children out and it is my guess that there will be many new faces in the fall. The test scores of the Bronx school which is the model school are terrible. Girls Prep needs new leadership and a new direction otherwie it will be a failing charter school.


Posted June 26, 2012

I am so glad school is over. After being behind the scenes at the school and seeing everything that went on in the MS - parents do not waste your time with this school. There is nothing good, except the friendships the girls have made. All this school is interested in is state testing to get more money from fundraising. This school is not for a child who has dreams and a mind of their own. The curriculum is at its minimal. I sure hope that this school doesn't keep doing an injustice to the kids.


Posted June 19, 2012

When a parent uses this site to send a message to other parents who probably don't need to read this - you send the wrong message to your kid as far as parenting goes. With that said, this school is nothing short of a catastrophe waiting to happen. This school does not measure up to the promises it sold to every single parent when they signed up. I too am counting down the days until school is over and my daughter doesn't return to this school. The curriculum is beyond weak and there has been no real edcuation since the state tests. I know my daughter has lost 2 years in the middle school upon the leadership of inept individuals. I don't see anything good in the future for this school.

Counting down the days where I can forget this school and the last 2 years which were a waste of time. This school has nothing to offer as far as an education that could stand out amongs the rest. The last 2 weeks are full of school trips. I remember there was work to be done until the very end and that was spent preparing for the next year. This school is nothing but an entity used to pump money in from the hedge funders. You get what you pay for and this case it was free and we got bottom of the line education.

I like so many other parents have a child at Girls Prep she has been there for six years and will be the first to graduate. It sickens me that so many parents who choose to keep our girls there have to listen to the nonsense of those that left. I will say that the education starts at home my daughter like so many others is a success story I teach her to hold her own, and to fight for whats right. Me and my fellow parents are not quitters and you guys love to mouth off just to be heard and like the saying goes if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything. So you found a good school a better school and yes the administration can be changed and yes we can use better teachers but you know what there's worst things out there let the parents that have girls at Girls Prep or choose to bring there girls there judge for themselves stop being mean Cause it makes you guys no better than the staff at Girls Prep. Cause your money school is gonna give you the best your paying for that education if you wasn't you think they'd really care. So you left Girls Prep leave us alone already find some humanity in yourselves leave the school and us parents and our children alone already.

Students are not taught positive behavior and then labeled for being "bad." There are fights and bullying. Students even make themselves sick just so they can get get away from the chaotic environment.

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. 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 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.
