My child just started freshman year at the NYC Museum school and is very happy. Caring and dedicated teachers who want to see all the children succeed. Modules on Wednesdays are a wonderful way for children to learn. Wednesday morning classes are followed by an afternoon out in the field to reinforce the lesson taught. Excellent opportunity children.

NYC Museum school has great teachers and provides an interesting and excellent education. Students don't need 3 hours of homework, but they do need 1-2 hours of worthwhile homework each day. The homework at Museum school is thought provoking and prepares students for college. The teachers and administration work very hard and care for the students. The Wednesday trips are educational and teach life skills as well as academic. My son is lucky he got into NYC Museum.

School provides students insufficient education and does not prepare students for their futures. But, very safe and nice place. If you are hoping to get into an excellent college don't apply to this school.

the teachers help you afterschool and sometimes on the weekends and if you need help they tell you in advance before you get your grades, the teachers are very friendly and are really nice to everyone. Teachers help with homework and usually stay afterschool for students who want to study for tests, they help you with your projects too. The students are extremely friendly and kind. The only bad thing is that I hardly see the princibal in the school

At NYC Museum School, sure the teachers may not give the kids a hour of homework everyday but they can relate to the teachers, and they understand what students need to improve on and what they are exceeding in. The teachers always know student's names by the second week of school. What makes this school a 'above average' school is the trip they go on every friday, they have fun but students always have work to do and learn about new things. Students have projects based on what they learned in the marking period and they learn great social skills.

My child just started the ninth grade and I am horrified about the lack of homework given at this school. She is getting about 15 minutes a day and tells me the teachers are chit chating with the students all day. I am very concerned. I will be looking for another school.

This school has a terrible principle. Much like the student who wrote a few days ago, our current principle has driven away the best teachers this school will most likely ever see. 75% of our 10th grade class failed the earth science regents due to this principles hireing incapabilities. I fear my lack of education will effect me greatly when i leave for colleg. Of course getting no homeowrk is a students dream, until you get to about 10th or 11th grade and you realize your nightly work load (usually nonexistant) is not preparing you enough for your futue. I am very greatful to be tought by the great teachers i had when they still worked in the school, however it's saddening that many other classes will not have the same wonderful teachers as other did. However, this school's cericulum is very intersting. So I can't complain too much.

i have been attending museum for the past four years and im happy to say that im in my last. i have seen the school go through many changes and most for the worst. we never go on field trips. we barely go to the musuems anymore. the whole staff who knew about our modules and etc. have been replaced by teachers who are overwhelmed and do not seem to grasp the concept of modules.. the promising module that all seniors were suppossed to partake in at the south street seaport has been removed. all of the school spirit events {spirirt day, carnival, student/teacher bball games} have been elimnated. It's gotten really bad and it makes me sad.

My child's education at the NYC Museum School takes full advantage of the cultural institutions of throughout our city. I'm delighted by both the curriculum and the teachers.

Museum is the best. They staff is always there to help and support you. They are very caring like your there own kid. They are alawys there to help you no matter what. The kids are so friendly. I had no problem making friends at all. The curriculum is excellent. The teachers know what they sre talking about. The trips to tje museums are so enriching and help us with our projects all the time. The school is just fill of resources that help us like the new labs, and computer room. At lunch time we have the choice of going outside to enjoy the beautiful scenery of lower west side Manhatten or stay in the cafe and mingle with other other peers. Museum is the best school in the world and I miss it so much and I wish I all the schools in the world was like museum!

This school is great I love the fact they allow the children to go to museums twice a week. This I think makes learning more interesting. I love watching my child's presentations when she shows how much they learn in the museum. They learn about cultures ways of life, animals, the even learn stuff about genes and cells. [My] child loved it enough to go to the high school.

This school is very diverse and the teachers are very willing to help any student at any time after school hours. The teachers are very friendly and even offer their phone numbers to some students to call them after school for help on their homework. The school goes out of their way to offer a great program for students who are not passing any of their classes after school, known as 'Homework Help', in this program they are sat down in a classroom and helped one by one in their individual needs
