Great school if you are not Latino or of African American descent. Especially, if you do not have an household income below of $80,000.00. Minority boys don't exactly flourish here. The school will want to transfer them to City-as-School instead of finding a better way to help the child. Don't get me wrong, they do have very dedicated teachers here, but for how long? The school showers those students who are not minorities with so much accolades and acclimation. Proof was made during graduation. The majority of awards given to students during graduation ceremony was given to students of Caucasion or Asian descent. My daughter was so happy and relieved to graduate from this school. I pray that she is prepared for the University she will attend.

This is a great school. I have a son who went to Salk and loved it and I have a son at SOF and loves it. Despite what people say this is a traditional school. The teachers are very engaged and so is the principal. I have to say that you need to be prepared for at least 2-3 hours a night of homework. It is a very diverse student body both in nationalities and level of academics. there are kids who are super smart to kids who have been left back a few times I have to say that my son at SOF is much more prepared academically for high school then my son that went to Salk. I have to say the negative is administration. All in all great school!!! Best of all the school goes through high school. I have met many of the high school teachers and they all seem super involved and look like they genuinely like their jobs. Not sure my son will stay but it is a great option to have!

SOF is an interesting school. Honestly, the high school is much better than the middle school. Not only that, but its teachers are amazing, the most dedicated and inspiring people you will ever meet. SOF is not the most academically-rigorous school, but you are made to think critically and speak clearly of your opinions. However, many of the kids are unmotivated and live life by strolling through their classes with low grades. SOF overall, is a good school. Definitely not the best, but it is good. You will be more or less content here (if you are only here for the high school).

School of the Future is a little off the radar but it is a gem. The teachers and the principal are the most creative and dedicated educators you will find anywhere, and seem to really care about each student. The study body is extremely diverse and small enough that there is a strong sense of community. It is a school that emphasizes critical thinking and writing over traditional test taking. The exhibitions the students do in 11th and 12th grade really prepare them for college-level work.

I am a sophomore student at SOF and on the first day of school, they have completely forgotten to transfer my student i.d. to the 10th grade on pupilpath (how can you forget a student??). Because of this, I had to go through so much trouble (And no student metro card?). They also raise the amount of class fees every year (Poor School?). Not to mention some teachers are rude and are restricted. It's a small crowded school and people are always pushing each other for the elevator and most of the time the elevator doesn't even work at all! Hello 10 floors of hell. Classrooms are very small and there is barely any space. Wish I went to Beacon or Lab.

This school is great is you are female. The school used to be an all girls school way back when. The info is in the main lobby. I have witnessed girls behaving in les than respectful manner and their behavior is over looked by the principal and teachers. I feel for the parents of the boys who attend this school especially boys who are not Caucasian as they are not treated with them same understanding and their self esteem diminishes as each day passes. There are a few very few great male role models in the school but this school is really catered to girls no matter how you put it. Boys don't flourish here as much as the girls. It lacks understanding of the adolescent male mind. Hence the female principal (middle school). Enough said. If you have a boy DO NOT SEND HIM HERE EVER.........

I went here. It has a great small personal community to it. The teachers and principal really care about your educational growth here and want to see you go off to college.

Small class size, dedicated teachers and in depth study are the best features of this school. My son loves it and is highly motivated. I believe it is best for self starters and students interested in humanities.

School of The Future is a wonderful school with amazing, caring teachers. I went there for middle school, and found it to be a warm and welcoming place. Our teachers would almost always meet during lunch, so they always knew what we were doing in our other classes. The students didn't always get along with each other, but most of the time we did, and since this is middle school we're talking about, getting along most of the time is pretty good! The class sizes are small which is especially nice if someone isn't doing well in one subject or another. The great teachers and staff were what really made our school stand apart from the rest.

Our school is a great little school that does amazing things and is often ignored by the DOE and parents who feel the competition that is created by the NY DOE as if schools were meant to compete with each other. This is a school that thrives on diversity, education and is just plain smart!

i went to school of the future for middle school and almost everyone who did is now going to the high school. i still speak to a lot of them every day and they all HATE it. i, personally, am going to bard and i LOVE it so i know it's not just a "silly high schoolers" type of thing. they do not like their teachers, they do not like the principle and they hate their classes. they also hate each other, but that's something else entirely. they aren't challenged (and to be completely honest, not all of them are that bright, and that's saying something.) a lot of the people there are less motivated and more unhappy because either they didn't get in anywhere else or they felt trapped so they didn't try. does that make up a good school? from experience, i think not

As I am just leaving for college, I have to say I had my doubts about this school. I spent 3 years in the MS and 4 years in the HS. It has its ups and downs. I would say if you want your kid to have a real High School experience to choose Stuyvesant, or Laguardia. This school best prepares you for the Future (No pun intended), you dont have your typical nerds, jocks or rebels in this school, everyone is accepted. With that though, theres no home games for any sport and can be frustrauting for the highly talented athletes, theirs no lockers, no individual desks, no bell system, no AP classes and much more. What makes this school so special is the teachers, they never offend anyone and love their job. Also a very safe school.

This is an amazing school. My daughter just entered 6th grade and absolutely loves it. The teachers anre fantastic. They are engaged, helpful, encouraging but firm. They teach excellent work habits that will assure success at the college level. Their lesson plans are interesting and original and they have a really good after school/extracurricular program. The administration is responsive and the parents are very involved in a positive way.

My son just started SOF this fall, and we love it. The classes are small, the teachers are great - fun but very clear in their expectations. Homework is manageable. The school hand-picks a diverse student body in terms of both ethnicity and academic levels, and works hard to ensure that everybody gets along.

My son who just graduated from SOF attend the MS and HS. This school provided a great academic environment for my son. The teachers are truly devoted to the students and encourage not only high academic performance but good social skills and an incredible sense of personal and social responsibility. I highly recommend this school and plan on having my 7 yr old daughter attend both SOF MS ans HS.

I am a parent of a 2007 graduate who came to SOF in his junior year. I was completely satisfied with the curricular and the academic programs provided at SOF. My son was given the opportunity to be taught to 'write'; which is exactly what our kids will be doing when they move on to college. The exhibition vs Regents was the best for my son, as the exhibitions forces our kids to challenge themselves and become better writers for it. Although my son did not walk in graduation, I too was dissapointed, however I respect the policy of the school and it showed my son that you need to step up your game and take responsibility for your actions. I loved this school and recommend all parents who are seeking a dynamic educational environment for their children to choose SOF!

I find the teachers dynamic, innovative and quite responsive to parental concerns. Of particular note for parents of squirmy, defiant boys; this school has superb male role models, funny, ethical, smart and sharp dressers. Made a big difference in my son's capacity to dig into the learning environment as a cool space.

My daughter is in college now and has graduated from the school of the future. The teachers are outstanding, dedicated, supportive, alive and reachable. They help children succeed.

I think this school is very unprofessional. The principal is very unfair to the students and discourages students who are trying to succeed.Their school policy is unfair. Students who fail any subject even if it's not a major subject are not permited to walk on graduation,even if they were promoted and not attending summer school. This I feel is very discouraging to those student who are struggling but striving to succeed.I also feel the spanish they teach at this school is very difficult to understand and many of the students are failing this subject. It's not a very organize school.Parents are not given notices regarding students failing or graduation function on time.

This school is a gem. The teachers and administration are extremely caring and work as a team to insure that your child will do their best. They nurture with love and even when they reprimand your child is soon told that they can do better and that they are amazing. It was my daughters birthday last week and the Middle School principal gave her a card that told her how special she was and that she was blossoming and could become even more amazing that she already is. The teachers are excellent and use a team approach to study a unit. The teachers all seem to love their jobs and love this age group. This school has a very involved PTA. The parents are amazing and have forged a very close community.
