I've had the opportunity of working closely with the administration, teachers and students. I'm extremely impressed with the culture that has been established. There is a high respect for each other in pursuit of education, creating lifelong learners and supporting the students to be their best at all times. The focus on the sciences, and the inclusion of the arts supports and recognizes the importance of both areas in a child's education.

This school offers those extra's to enhance the mind of young ones. From academics, culture, and so many other diversities...swimming,varsity events, choir, ....the exposure is 'unlimited.' From thePrincipal, Ms. Hunt to each and every teacher, administrative and even the housekeeping staff know the children by their names and look out for them.

This school is amazing. The care and respect the staff shows the students, the motivation-is unbelievable. I get up every morning to take the 40 min train ride to a different borough to take my 2 sons to this school. It's just that great. The programs they offer and the opportunities they give these children are amazing! This school deserves to win-bar none!

Harbor Science And Arts School, really cares about our children and the parents! We work hand in hand to ensure that our children get the best education possible, prepare for college, and yet still be a kid. Yes the currriculum is rigourous, but Harbor Science And Arts Charter School, is adamant in making sure that learning is interesting and fun!

I have a daughter in this school, the fact that the administration has changed three times in three years has a lot to do with the progress of the children, but now Ms. Hunt is in charge the school has made great strides. The kids have showed improvement with grades and attitude as well. They enjoy going to school and learning. Parents have to get more involved with the leaning process. It is never entirely up to the school, it has to start at home. Parents are the first and last teachers.

My son attended Harbor for four years. I took him out of the public school system and he would have a better education. Unfortunately, it did not turn out that way. My son has a learning disablity that I discovered on my own. The school always called me for his behavioral problems. Upon having him tested we, discovered that he is ADHD with Dyslexia. This was the overall problem with his behavior. They did not provide him with the proper help order by CSE. This Charter school is not equiped to dealing with children that have behavior or learning disablities. They rather label them and push them on someone else. My son is now in High School and struggling. They have new Adminstrator and Teacher the Charter School. I have another child attending another Charter School and they are no better.
