This is an update from what I posted last year. The school has greatly improved its communication with parents via frequent e-mail distributions and updates. I still highly rate this school and encourage parents of sixth graders to aim for Scholars' Academy. What it has to offer is unique in the city; I understand it has also caught the eye of the education community as a rising star in the NYC Dept. of Education. That attention has been well earned!
This school is amazing. My daughter has been going here for 3 years, and this is her graduating year. She is so sad to be leaving such a wonderful school. =]
Scholars Academy is everything they promise to be. I only wish more kids had this opportunity.
I have two children attending this school and could not be happier. They are each very different types of students and this school has brought out the best in both of them. My oldest will be starting the HS this year and after researching many other possibilities I feel confident that she made the right choice to stay here for HS. The school is challenging, well rounded, creative, safe and nurturing. Also, the administration is very open to listening to the concerns of the parents and I feel that parents are able to participate to help their children be more successful. We are thrilled to be here!
I am a current student and I think our school is great. I actually miss all of my friends and teachers during the summer. Anyone who thinks it's not a great school, either didn't do their work and failed, or just wants to go to a typical school in NYC. I feel safe, don't have to worry about what I wear in the morning to be popular and don't feel bad that my parents can't buy me stuff that rich kids have. I have great friends and I am learning more than most kids in other schools. There aren't any schools like this one in the whole city. Holla' Scholars'!
I am an ex-student and I felt that for an excellerated school, Scholars' Academy fell short. I honestly felt like I wasn't challenged enough which didn't let me truly enjoy what I was learning. Plus, the principal didn't treat us like adults but like children since we had to be escorted to every class like we were in elementary school. Only eigth graders are allowed to walk by themselves. Jewelery and other valubles were constantly confiscated and the extra curricular wasn't at its best. I think that this school needs a complete make over and fix what its doing wrong.
Scholars Academy is a really great middle school! It has a very good program! The principal is great!
Great School! Great Principal and Teachers. A lot of support from staff to students. My son started since they open the Scholars Academy and now is in 9th grade. He loves his school. Good security and a lot of discipline and respect in every way. Highly recommend.
This is the best school in the world! My son goes to the Scholars Academy and the school is excellent! My son is always saying that he cant wait to go to school every day. I try to be involved in my son's education and I just find it amazing at what he is learning. I'm also amazed at how many extra-curricular activities they have. Also, this school is the second best school in New York City! I am so glad that my son goes to this school!
The school has tremendous potential, and must ensure the quality of instruction. Some teachers are wonderful, some are very below average. This is the only problem with the school so far.
I think this school is amazing. This is my second year at this school and I love it so much. I think all the teachers are wonderful and very helpful and the staff is really nice. If you are thinking about sending your child to this school I really think you should.
I think the teachers in the Scholars Academy are wonderful and they know how to deal with adolescents. Not every school can do that. The teachers seem to have a passion for what they are doing and are genuinely interested in your child They learn a great deal there, more then the regular middle schools.
My daughter is in her first year at Scholars and is truly excelling academically and socially. I have been greatly impressed with all of her teachers & their methods. I would recommend Scholars to anyone who has an ambitious middle school age child.
this school is great the principal can know every child my son told me he play football wiht the kids, the teacher are great if your child can go to this school your will so greatful
