I am a 2001 graduate of IS 93. This school has many great teachers. My most memorable moment was with my Spanish teachers. They helped me learn Spanish through non-traditional means, such as having the class watch Telemundo and Univision, and Betty La Fea, and to report in class on a news story or an episode of the famous soap opera. The student population was very diverse. This gave me the exposure to other cultures and to learn about our differences, and be able to work with each other.

I am in 8th grade my 6th and 7th years were fantastic. teachers were fun and loving. 6th grade was a blast and lots of fun, 7th grade was preparing and challenging after that my 8 th grade o far is nerve wrecking because of the high schools. But still my 3 years there were awesome

Though there a quite a few flaws, I still love this school. The teachers are great and unlike most teachers from different schools, they are hilarious, and even then you still learn something. Though they are hilarious/fun loving, they are also very strict, which is essential in a child's education (or me).The rest of the staff are extremely kind, for they help you with whatever you need. For example, when I was a freshman in this school I was lost. A school-aid came up to me and helped me find my way, and I had never forgot that moment since. This is why I think IS93 should win America's Favorite School Contest!

I'm currently in the 7th grade and i have to say all and all i love it there. I mean the teachers always put there heart and soul into what they do and they love every minute of it as well as the students. This school offers so much that they never stop giving. There are so many activities to take part in that you'd want to join like guitar, photography, drama and dance. This school is defiantly safe. Every corner you turn there is someone watching out for you, whether its a teacher, a school aid, an assisant principal or even a security guard. Me and my friends totally agree that this school is awesome and we wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

My name is Delores Leandry. I went to I.s.93 for 2 years i am a graduate of class 2006 and I have never had such a good time in school. People were so nice and I.S.93 is a good school they teach very well. I left New York and came to Georgia and now they are giving me a scholarship to college and im only in 10 grade. I.S. 93 is very strict about school work. The deans do not play games espically Mr.Turner. Kids will go striaght to class. School lunch could never be better. I think you should chose this school for your child beacuse your child just might turn out to be very succesful and smart with a scholarship In the future. Good luck!!!!!

Iused to go to is93 and i rate it a 10 i loved it i loved the teachers, all of the teachers in is93 thought there lessons with passion, they made every student understand they treated them nice and made class fun. students were diciplined if a student misbehaved they were sent to the deans office. i never saw smoking or drug use theachers were always for the kids safty it was almost impossible to skipschool or class because theachers were alwayas suspicios, i garrentee that your child will be safe in this school. is93 has advanced tecnology evry student had there own laptop. every student that went to is93 improved very much the students in is93 were alays participating they were always into thier work. they loved school, besides that there is alot of activities there are talent shows drama music olympics and more

This school only gets 3 stars. It was overcrowded. I was in fear of my safety from other students. Some teachers didn't even care about you. My only favorite memories were only of those spent with my friends.

I.S.77 Is great I loved that school...So many good memories.In i.S77 I learn alot and I got into a great high school.I always was happy and if there was a problem there was some one to always go to.Mr.Miller. If there was something wrong he would always fix it.This school is great.I know it was great because I graduated from there this year.All the teachers are great but the best ones were ms.Quinn, ms.Sanders, and of course my past dean mr.Baumann. Theres always something to do in that school. Also the school is well organized. I just love the memories!

My daughter used to go to Our Lady Of Hope but we lived in Ridgewood. She continiously begged me to go to this school and I kept saying no I thought I was protecting but I really wasn't letting her experience life. I went to Catholic School my whole life so I didn't know what it was like. I thought it was really a very bad school but then my daughter brought me to the school to see it and to see the inside and look around and right there and then I decided to let her go to this school because I should give it a try and not completely cross it out without trying. Let me tell you she went to Stuyvesant High School and Harvard College. She is now studying in a law school to become a lawyer. I couldn't be anymore proud of her! To all the teachers at I.S. 93 and the dean and principal thank you very much my daughter is so greatful and so happy with the way her life is turning out. Every day I talk to her on the phone and every day she says thank you for giving I.S. 93 a try see where it got me. Remember when choosing a school 'don't judge a book by its cover' and give it a try I am sure you and your child will be thankful!
