This school is the worst in the neighborhood. Talk about bullies, there are bullies in all different forms. This school is all about having its ratings being high and good. I would advise anyone thinking of sending their child there to look for another alternative. Yes, the school is small but the children are the same from kindergarten to 8th grade. If your child is harassed at grade 2, I guaranteed you it would continue to the upper grades. The school does nothing to help. Bad management knowing it is in the same building as the school superintendent. What a shame……
Parents need to be more evolved in parent teachers conference and more activities for the kids it is also a middle school . Things has change since my daughters been their academically teachers are great the ones my daughter had.
This school is rather new. I like that there is fewer classes per grade. My daughter has been there for three years, and till this date has no complaint about this school. She loves all her teachers and classes, and they have thought her plenty. My only concern is the crossing guards. This is a busy avenue, and they need to have more security to help these kids cross the streets in the morning and in the afternoon.
The school is good....work in progress...but needs better safety parameters for children that walk to school. The Jamaica Ave and 222nd intersection is dangerous due to heavy commercial traffic, a city bus depot that is heavily active in the morning, and a short walk signal for children to cross. The crossing guard can not even assist the children to cross Jamaica Ave, because the crossing guard says she does not have enough time to cross over with the children so instead they wave their hands and tell the children run..run..cross now! At the same time huge commercial heavy traffic is simultaneously are making left and right turn onto Jamaica Ave, narrowingly missing the kids from getting run over. In conclusion, the school is new, the safety for children is totally disregarded, no signs to reduce the speed , no upgrade to traffic signals to allow children to cross safely, no speed bumps. The interim principal and the PTA are unsuccessful in solving this problem. Any real effective suggestions to rectify this major oversight and neglect for children's safety would be appreciated.
good school.... my child attended PS 33 and we transferred to this school . I am very pleased witht he teachers, program and the school qquality. My child loves the school and i am happy it goes to grade 8.... it makes for a much better education for kids to be in a smaller school without the problems of the large middle schools.
A good school with good educational oppurtunities. Though I wouldn't reccomend it against top schools such as Louis Armstrong or Scholars Academy, this school has good learning preferences, but is new and it isn't as well run as some other schools. This is a school for a child that is shy to travel out of town. Otherwise, other schools a kind of better. I am sure as this building gets older, it will become top.
