This ATR was warmly accepted by staff and students from Day 1. The students from the classes covered on the first day recognized and called me by name immediately upon seeing me in a classroom, a hallway or entering or leaving the school. The staff and students work together. It seems that help is always available for the students. The computer lab has over 15 computers and is highly maintained by the school's computer service technician. The printer was maintained promptly. Transportation was best for me using the A/C to 59th and then the 1. However, it is walkable from the N, A and C.
My daughter currently attends this school and let me tell you on orientation night the staff put up a good show. Children wonder around the halls. My daughter finds it difficult to focus on class work; because there are students who feel school is a place to hangout and are inconsiderate to their peers. The principal lacks structure and follow-up skills. Uniform are not worn after the school emphasized school uniform. My child will be transferred from this school.
