This school is awesome! The after-school programs are so much fun, and all the teachers there are very nice. There are many overnight trips throughout the year. The only thing that the school lacks is a playground...

This school seems academically sound. They offer students diverse and challenging classes. They also provide students with various after-school activities like Art, Drama, and Music. In addition to the academic and extra-curricular activities, they also host several educational and entertaining day and overnight (2 day/3 night) trips during the semester. My concern is the level of staff attentiveness to the students' academic well-being. i understand homework is not often check and students are assigned homework on topics that were not covered. Also, staff seems to be more concerned about non-academic activities than teaching.

Dangerous environment for children, would not reccomend a child to come to the school at all.

This was a great school! The class sizes were big and the school was small, but that is to be expected from a NYCDOE public school. The academics were challenging enough and the teachers were kind and supportive. The honor's class probably received a bit more attention, but the entire school was looked after very well. The student body and staff is extremely diverse and it is a great place to be for middle school because it not only takes a child out of elementary school, but preps them for high school as well. To the person who said the breakfast and lunch programs need to be cut, I completely disagree. More than half of the students rely on the school food. Some parents are extremely busy and don't have time to pack a proper nutritious lunch or perhaps the students aren't able to get breakfast at home. Public schools foster children of all demographics and financial backgrounds.

Most of my classmates went to this school and I have watched them become corrupted, but I have been unable to do anything about it. The staff is good, and this school is high tech, but they have not been able to instill good values into their students.
