Posted November 4, 2010

this is a great school but i just think parents need to be more involved with the school.


Posted June 21, 2010

This school could be better than it is now. The Administrator's seem to be more afraid of Parents and students then the Chancellor. There is very little to no discipline for the students. If there is no discipline then you WILL have repeated negative encountered. The students are afraid of each other and the teacher's have express concerns for their own safety on several occasions to me. I know this school could be the Best of the Best but until then I can not let my child stay here in I S 192 The Linden in St. Albans

This school really seems to be placed in a negative light. The principal is extremely active and continually goes to the mat for this school. The programs offered are incredible!! If all students take advantage acceleration in academics and personal growth would be exponential. Parents need to seriously get involved and come out a support this school better. With increased parent involvement this school would really rise to be the true gem that it is. Their accelerated programs really help the children with there advancement in High School. I have witnessed first hand the positive outcome of students from this school and happily enrolled my own child in this wonderful educational institution.

I think this is very well kempt and clean. But I do think that parents need to be more involved.

Students are not properly disciplined and, therefore, they continue to repeatedly break Chancellor's regulations without fear of consequences. This school is a zoo.

this school is actually a very good school. even though many people say that kids do not learn anything here, they actually do. it is just the fact that some of the kids are rude and disrespectful. the teachers are great and there are many activities that the kids attending the school can get involved with. i had my doubts about this school, but it is actually good.

I can say that this school has had a lot of improvements especially when they started hiring Filipino teachers. It's not that i am saying that non-Filipino teachers are not as good. What i am saying is Filipinos are very caring in nature and are very understanding. They do everything for the kids. They love teaching. In their classrooms,you can see that there is action.. . . the quality of academic programs is good. The only not so good thing i noticed is they need to increase the level of parent involvement. During parents teachers conferences, not all parents come. PTCs are veery important. they should be encouraged to come and talk to the teachers to know how their child is doing in school.

This school seems to be run by incompetent administrators that don't even display a command of the English language. For the most part, threats of discipline take the place of real discipline, while the disruptive students are not only tolerated, but by the absence of negative consequences, are positively reinforced in their deviant behavior. This school is dirty, unkempt, and staffed by teachers that just don't seem to care.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
