The school is really amazing for such a large one. I am in and ARP class, 801 to be graduating this year and the school has really gotten much better since my first year. They have gotten much stricter and fights are much less often seen. My teachers are always pushing us to do better and can be confided in at any time. The school is a bit crowded and hallway travel is a bit tight but overall the experience is great. Much better than most middle schools out there.
Hey! I was a student at M.S137 I graduated with the class of 09. There's not too much to say about this school other than it is really cool. The teachers really get invovled with the students, helping them acidemically. Pesonally I think M.s 137 has all the cool teachers. Even though we had to break a sweat while working, it paid off. We worked hard and got rewarded at the end. I will Truly Miss The Good times i had there!
i am a student at ms.137 and i love the school. I have nice teachers and good grades but some classes are challenging but that's school!! My favorite teacher is definitely ms.sasso who has always been there when kids need!
i love ms 137 when i was in that school. it was a great time. the teachers that used to be there were awesome i loved every one of them.
i am a student at m.s 137 this school is very good! i love my 8th grade a.p miss wilkins she helps me with everything im in 8th grade and my 8th gradehomeroom teacher mr.allen is very educated he made me a 90 average studnet in math
ok, i am the same person who wrote on march 19, i have graduated from MS137, i really do miss that school, High School is tough, but since i was new to this country when i first entered the NYC public school system, it was weid, i was about 3,000 miles away from my 'home' and that school has given me the most help, so anyone who had a bad experience at this school, please, there are many more students like me attending that Middle school and i happen to know 2 others who are going to high ranking HS, like me, Aviation High school, and my friend, The school of accounting in Manhattan, all i have to say is that MS137 helped me and lots of others, and one sour mouthed person, should not ruin its
i graduated from this school and i must say it had been fun and i will miss this school greatly and i hope the others enjoy this school as much as i did (class of 08)
The scholl is great i like it but i think that they should have better extracurricular activities. But the teacher are very nice
this school is not approprite for children 12-15. there are too many fight and the princpal is not at all concerned about the children's saftey. this school should have a new facuilty that supports and boost children.
This school has improved the most. The ciriculum is very good! From 2 stars this school has grown to be very good. The ARP classses are very well structeured and educated. The teachers need to just a little be nicer becuase of the kids not wanting to learn if they have a mean teacher and not wanting to focus! My child has been complaining a bit about that! The saftey is very good! They have security guards and ID cards for students this is nice!
It's a good school, just when I attended this school it was kind of cheap . We didnt have alot of good books nor text books. The Teachers are great.
Middle School 137 is a place where education can be facilitated by the right environment. I went to Middle School 137 in from 2002-2003 and I can personally say that the school is a place where opportunity is presented, and at the same time, it is prevented. The teachers are very diverse, some of them are caring individuals whereas the others are simply inadequate. Programs such as ARP are being slowly taken away as the school has become reduced to nothing but another 'average' middle school. Most disgracefully, the school is situated in a place where children feel un-inclined to work . It is simply a horrible neighborhood. Also, the role of the principal is meager and the administration is inadequate. If you want your children to grow up in an environment that is safe and productive, Middle School 137 is not the place.
Between the fires in the halls, the harassment and abuse of teachers by students, the fear of discipline for the worst behavior problems, highly misplaced priorities, and the well-meaning yet grossly incompetent, weak administrative staff I see some serious flaws. On a positive note, there actually are some very good teachers in this school. Its a shame however that their talents are often stifled.
