School Official Point of View

I think the school is changing and for much better. The principal cares very deeply for the girls in the school. She relates to parents as an educator, but also as a parent. She wants to make sure that the girls have the best teachers and also the best opportunities. I am pleasantly surprised by all the changes.

This school is changing so much, there are a handful of good staff there and you're lucky if your child are in their class, some of the teachers my daughter has encountered are very unprofessional with the way they speak to and deal with the kids, they preach obout sisterhood but there's nothing sisterly about this school I've had teachers speak down to my daughter and made her feel really bad about herself even pulled and pushed her and nothing was done' I would not recommend this school to anyone worst experience ever.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My daughter has been blessed to have very strong and caring teachers. They are well informed in their practice but it doesn't stop in the classroom. The school community as a whole has had a positive impact on my daughter and her education.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Their approach on homework makes the parents accountable as well. Homework has to be signed by the parents every night which means you have to sit with your scholar and go through the work with them. Another great way to get the parents involved.

Isabella is currently in the third grade and there is no other school I would trust with my daughter's education. Girls Prep Lower East Side Elementary remains to be the caring and nurturing environment I will always want for my daughter and every other young girl in our community.

What can I say? Not worth your time. Leadership is poor and staff come and they quickly go. Children so young need stability. The new principal always has a sour look on her face and quite frankly, it's unnerving. Leadership is mediocre at best and the school is remote. It's extremely difficult to get to even for those residing in the neighborhood. My opinion, move along.



- a
The school is too far and remote. Who has time to wake up beyond early to bring their daughter to a school so difficult to get to. Despite their rhetoric, they really are not that special a school and offer nothing different from a local school that's easier to get to. They're just a typical charter school that thinks they're the savior of education when they're not really worth a second look. They're not bad. The kids are great, the staff is nice but just nothing worth the hardship of traveling for.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Teachers care and work hard. They are committed to educating their students.




- a
The staff at that school has no training they talk down to you and make you feel like your child has no potential.....WORST SCHOOL EVER and what is up with parents not being able to sit in the class and see what their 5 year old is doing that is just makes no sense, a bunch of perpetrators.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
Can't say especially when it's the staff that does the bullying
