Great leadership at this school. Small, supportive learning environment. Parents are very involved which helps support the programs that the school needs.

This school is well-run, operates from a clear purpose and a set of principles that are consistent, and recognizes the individuality of every student. Henry Zymek is a first-rate principal who amazes with his knowledge of each an every student. Sara Sloves is a parent coordinator from heaven. And the teachers are top-rate. Diversity is not just a catch phrase in this school, it is a priority. I'm very happy we chose Computer School.

I absolutely love the Computer School--to render it a schooling facility feels nearly inadequate, for it has such a wonderful community feel alongside the general high academic standard set for us students. I joined this year and couldn't have a higher overall opinion. The children are friendly in general, and the teachers are willing to work with you in order to allow you and your parents to understand whatever grade you may receive and not only how to raise it, but how to improve your overall understanding of the subject. It's marvelous, uplifting--searching for an appropriate enough adjective would be tedious and impossible, but believe me, if you're looking for a strong program with the ability to send any child into a substantial high school, then MS 245 (more commonly referred to as the Computer School) is the right place for you!

I love the school. My child is entering 8th grade and the past two years were wonderful. Teacher and administration are very involved and seem to know every kid. They have a zero tolerance for all types of bad behavior expecially bullying or any physical aggression.

Why on Earth didn't the Administration know when the State ELA tests were being taken this year? Why are the guidance counselors having a High School information session the evening before the State Math test? Why is Science HW being assigned the day beofore the ELA tests? Maddening!!

It was either Delta or Computer School for my kids. They chose the school that felt better, more like a community. And they're not disappointed. The standards are high, the school spirit is great, the kids are there to learn and enjoy being part of a community, and the faculty is excellent, led by dynamic and accessible Principal Zymeck.

I transferred from Delta here. At Delta I got 95's. When I entered this school I was shocked on how great and normal social aspects of the school can be but how it can also stimulate education even more so than delta. I was more challenged to think outside of the box and I was graded fairer in computer school, not to mention the school spirit and the social aspects of the school surpass delta by far. I can't think of a way Computer School could be better.

We've also been very happy with this school. The student body is varied and yet very well-knit. The teachers also go to whatever lengths to help their students. I could not have chosen a better school to attend.

We've been very happy with the school. The teachers stay on top of the students and give them extra help when they need it. We've also been pleased with the parent/teacher communication which is vital in middle school as kids find their footing.
