I think this school is really good. I started coming here for the first time and everybody is extremely nice. The teachers also challenge you. It is noisy in lunch and the lunch itself doesn't taste that good. Hallways are crowded and there should be an auditorium. The academic level is good. People are very friendly and there is little or no bullying.

The phone number is (718) 725-0402. principle Avionne Gumbs, vp Jennifer Pineda, parent co-odinator Leslie Harding. My daughter came in in 8th grade from a failing school, and I am pleased w/ the school. When you put effort in your child's education, by being involved, showing you are interested, it makes it more rewarding, what they bring home. My daughter is not a talker, but she goes for afterschool help. They've gone on trips to college every year she's been there, and has received info from numerous colleges. This school has given her the push to do well to get a scholarship for college.
Can someone please give me more information on this school, I plan to send my daughter there, she will be going to the tenth grade. currently she is attending John Bowne HS, She is doing very well in her classes, but I am not satisfied with the school! It allows a lot of inappropriate behavior.
The best thing about this school is the college bound program. The college counselor is young, professional and is up to date with her information. It's great that the younger students have the opportunity to visit colleges. My daughter has benefited greatly from attending college trips.
Unsatisfactory leadership. Girls are not nurtured as was promised during interview. My daughter was not prepared for high school during middle school. Most of her accomplishments were due to private tutoring and independent studies. Teachers are abusive with little or no intervention from the Principal. Students are suspended almost daily. Abuse of power by inexperienced Administration.
I am the parent of an 11th grade student at this school. My daughter was recruited from 6th grade and has been at this school since 7th grade. This school has NOT gotten her ready for college. I have noticed this school is more concerned about how the girls look then what the academics of the girls. Parents BEWARE this school looks great from the outside looking in, but there are too many shady things happening on the inside.
I find in the short period of time my daughter has been at this school, a lot has happened for her. Her confidence is improving, she is getting better at completing her assignments, and the encouragement to be more involved I appreciate. The school's populace is much smaller, all girls, and has a college-bound program that is very progressive. She has already met with colleges this week, to see what is being offered to her. I love this school!
