Posted February 6, 2009

This school is one of the speciallized high schools in New York. The teachers and staff are amazing at this school, especially the ones in the Science and Engineering departments. Not only are they teachers but they are aslo engineers, architects, etc. Our math, english, and history department are great as well. I am still amazed on how well rounded these teachers are, Only the Best! The only downside of this school is the lack of extracurricular activties and sports, there is some.... but not too many.

Although small containg 400 students for all 4 grades this school is good. It challenges you and expects only the best.Only apply if you're willing to do some work. =)

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.
