I currently go to Baruch and I've had the most amazing year of my life. I've met the most incredible people, worked with the most influential teachers, and have learned so much not just academically, but of other real life lessons. A lot of these comments are saying that fights happen and that it's rowdy and disorganized. We're at an age now that in whatever middle school, things like that are guaranteed to happen. It's incorrect to say we're narcissists for being in middle school. Despite this, the amazing staff always are so attentive and helpful when accidents DO occur. The teachers are just the most amazing humans i've ever met, and they are part of who i've become. (Ms. Collins, Mr. Ko, Ms.Lin, Ms.McCormack and more.) All teachers here at MS104 have a way of teaching in which every student understands. This is brought out through real life scenarios, activities, and more. Overall, I can;t stress enough how much I love my school, and I;m going to be in puddles when I have to leave.

School uses a system called Engrade. teachers consistently do not advise kids on this site of 1. tests 2. Homework Teachers consistently fail to input a correct grade or at times, no grade at all.

Why can't Ms 104 teachers post the homework on Engrade like the rest of the world? Some do, most don't. Unfair and ridiculous.

I am a student here in Simon Baruch and this is my last year in 2015. I love this school since we changed the principle into a new one. He is trying his best to lead this school. The teachers here are super nice and they try their best to help you guys prepare for the SHSAT,SATS, and the state test. Although the homework is not too much or too little, you would have homework every single day. The club activities are very interesting especially the tech crew, drama club which makes amazing plays by the drama teacher Mr. Ko. (A very funny drama teacher and very fun class.) My favorite 8th grade teacher is Ms. Banke, if u do see her you will automatically smile at her warmness. A very good SCHOOL!!

This is the worst school ever!!! My child was bullied when he first got there he got jump and none of the kids got in trouble. Now it is his last year and my son gets suspended for defending him self. My son went from being in the talented and gifted program to failing his all his classes. But if he played basketball they would have made sure he passed his classes. Why do you need to play ball for the school to actually get help?
