I am a Philippa Schuyler Class of 2013 graduate. Im in highschool now, and I have to say, I miss Schuyler so much. I miss some of the teachers. I hated the school in 6th grade. 7th grade is a taste of what things will be like when your a senior, I started to like the school after i entered 7th grade. Being a senior in the school is the best experiences you will have being a Schuyler student. Yes, more pressure is put on you to do well especially because you will be graduating and moving onto highschool, but it was the best year I, along with many other graduates had. As a senior, pressure is put on you to do what you need to do, and teachers will often talk and give you lectures when you dont. You are told that you are the bosses of the school basically and to be a role model to the younger students. The younger kids look up to you. Message to any 8th graders right now and lower grade students reading this, DONT RELAX. Get every assignment in. To the 8th grade, after highschool week, just because you find out what H.S you go to wont mean you'll graduate. You arent safe until the day you graduate, so dont slack off. I miss Schuyler. Good luck to all,and to all future students-Alumni

I have attended I.S.383 for the past 4 years and i loved every second of it. We have a great staff and education system, not only that but we have great kids attending this school. I graduated in 2013 and I love the school i am in now. We help kids with SHSAT exams and at least 23 i know of went to Specialized High Schools. I love everyone there and what they teach. Shout out to Ms.Hoyte who is the best ELA and friend a person can have. Thank You!

6th grade was the best year for me i loved having many classes i miss all my sixth grade teachers like my technology teacher, art teacher, and my writing teacher. i wish i had all these classes but writing is not an option in the seventh grade. I'm currently enrolled in Schuyler and its the best school yet. All the classes are great,I give my school an A++ and my school deserves that rating

A good middle school or should I say, a gifted and talented school provides academically for all students and is run by a principal with a vision and the ability to motivate and lead teachers. Not all of the teachers are bad, they have some excellent teachers. They have a few teachers who are actually failing students and cannot provide substantial evidence and the leadership has not acknowledge that there is a problem. This school should be removed as a "Gifted and Talented", It needs to be revamped by the Department of Education. Some of the teachers, along with the students are horrific. The teachers need to be held accountable for their actions or removed from their duties. Again, a good principal is one with a vision and the ability to motivate and lead teachers.

I am writing as a parent and someone who worked on a part time basis with the school. The teachers, for the most part are exceptional I think the program needs to be more challenging and enriching. Some kids are allowed to act out their "ghetto mentality" and this needs to be checked by the administration. Some parents who are serious about their kids will be appalled by their behavior. These supposedly "Gifted and Talented" kids curse and fight in the class room! And most recently, I understand there will be "summer school" this summer for those who failed. In my opinion, these kids should be asked to leave the school. Another thing I find disturbing, is that the parent teacher association does not address the academic standing of the school and student behavior and achievement. I have attended a few meetings, where they only spoke about the political climate of the school, and fundraisers. The teachers do not even attend. I would like the forum to address teachers, students and parents issues, and we all need to be held accountable for our actions and our children's action in the school.

I have different views about this school. I am a seventh grader going to 8th grade next year. the education is decent and teacers arent really that strict. tests come once in a while but the activities are very poor. throughout this whole year, we had one lousy major seventh grade trip, to Funplex which wasnt really that fun either. like other reviews had said, don't get tied up with the name "Gifted and Talented", this was the reason my mom told me to go to this school. the school is great though, the teachers are fun, the ed. is great, gym is nice but the school itself needs a make over. also the school looks, dead. i wouldnt really go to this school, reasearch before u go somewhere. you can find great teachers any where

All 3 of my children have been to I.S.383. The challenging academic program combined with an excellent Arts program gave them the foundation for excellence in High school. I am very proud of the young adults my children have become. I see them living the I.S.383 motto everyday.

My child has attended this school since the 5th Grade. He will be entering his senior year in September 2011. Since he has been there I cannot really say there is anything negative to say on the school. The teachers that my child has experienced in his three years of attending I.S. 383 have been very helpful. The school takes the initiative to inform parents of any workshops, issues and events occurring in the school. I particularly like that extended day is offered in this school. It gave my child the help he needed when he was struggling in certain subjects. The school offers many different subjects and activities that other junior high schools may not offer. In turn, this gives the childrent the opportunity to explore areas that they may want to explore for future endeavours. The school is clean and the environment a positive one. The school is easily accessible by many different forms of public transportation. I am glad my child has attended this school and proud to say my child is a Schuyler student.

Hello, I am A student at Philippa Schuyler(I.S 383). It is a academically challenging school,however, it has poor faculty and staff. there is a handful of teachers who you can say really put time in and help students. They are financially challenged and can't afford air conditioner therefore it is too hot to think in 99 degree weather. the desk are chipped and the school is old, plain, and drab. We have a basketball team but like i said, time isn't there. They are constantly canceling practices and games. Most text books are ripped, ragged and old. I would go on but that is just a waist of time. Don't be fooled by the name "For The Gifted And Talented" like my mother has, i wouldn't take my child to this school, PLEASE.

I did a lot of research before selecting Phillipa Schuyler as the middle school for my child. Its only the first month of schools so I really hope my concerns are invalid. My son has already told me about bullying in the school and that there is not a lot of discipline. Also, there does not seem to be any focus on activities outside of academics. Our children have already established they are smart enough to get into the school and of course there should be a regimen that focuses on keeping our children ahead. However, where are the afternoon school programs and extracurricular activities? Where are the trips? Clubs? I think I might've expected too much. I have been researching other schools that are also focused on the gifted and talented and they seem to be focus on making the kids well rounded. Overall satisfied with concerns.

Philippa schuyler is a wonderful school. It encourages student to do well in school from the help and pressure of the teachers and adults.As a graduate of schuyler I saw that competition wasn't the best thing, only when someone was competing them self. This i know personally because i was very competitive, that it was hard to function in the schuyler environment where kids would or wouldn't like you because you act like a so called 'know it all'. with this mentality in mind when in schuyler you would surely crash and burn! So just have faith in you're self that u would make friends and do well in school by studying ,working hard and being individually competive. And inorder to be a true Schuyla Head be cool and have you're own unique personality!

I currently have a 7th grader in Schuyler. I think that it is a great school academically. However, I think that they need to have more social events as well. It is a lot of pressure and I think that the kids would benefit from sports related events and/or dances and trips. I also wish the parent coordinator was more involved with the parents.

I like that this school sets high standards and offers a huge variety of classes. I don't like that students get robbed from kids in the surrounding community on a daily basis: phones, IPODS, sneakers, and bookbags. The schoolyard needs to be available to the students!

I attended this school for 3 years, and I can honestly say it was the best three years of my life thus far. I met so many people who are to this day very influential in my life. One person in particular who stood out to me was Mrs. Gail Irizarry. A woman who never gives up on any project including me. Although i started out rough around the edges, she really got through to me and helped me calm down and focus. For everything she has done, I am now a A+ student, I also work for NYPD as an Explorer, and I am doing a lot of productive thing swith myself. If your child attends this school, they will not only get a great educaion, they will also get the proper guidance to sculpt a a productive young adult.

The programs in the school are very good. They range in an assortment of classes. The school provides honor classes and class electives. Electives also come in a wide assortment rangeing from dance to chorous art to instumentals, strings, steel pan, creative writing, law, cookin, physical education, african studies, hispanic studies and the list goes on and on and on. Lot of parents are in volved in school activities especailly due to pta hosted on saturdays pta meetings help parents gradually catch up on what is g0ing on in the school and what their child has been doing. The teachers are great and require high performance levels. If you were looking for a great school for your child look no further because phillippa schuylem middle school for the gifted and talented will meet all your and your childs needs and goals.

I am the proud parent of a current student who is a soon to be 6th grader at I.S. 383, but I am also a former student. Although the work load is heavy and expectations high, my experience at this school was immeasurable. This school strives for excellence and achieves it. Parents are kept well informed and students have many extra- curricular activites to choose from. My son's first year has been a positive experience for him, and I trust it will continue doing so. I would recommend this school to any parent that wishes their child to have the best in academia.

i am a present senior at this school. i strongly believe that the principal need to have more involvement in the students instead of thir scores. the only time we see her is when there is an assembly. however the school is great. some teachers may be a pain in the neck but this is only because they care. i feel the work load is preparing me for high school and the extra curricular activities keep student motivated. i would highly recommend this school to parents.

This school is doing great with very little funding because it is not a Title 1 school. The principal is revolutionary and changes to administration is bearing fruits as can be seen from the recent increase in citywide ELA and Math scores. Another first for the school is the introdution of steelpan music in 2004.
