This uniformed school with 4 academies offers Math and Science Regents classes in eighth grade, has a record number of students in the Legal Outreach Program, students enrolled in Project Boost, a collaborative program with North Shore LIJ, a free after school and summer program with the YMCA and an in school mentoring program with Our Brothers Guardian, Inc. The adult community has access to free hands on computer workshops/classes at various times throughout the year, other informative workshops and great student performances. The adult male program of Men Stand United is fostering a sense of greater support from Dads and male guardians / mentors within the school. Visitors are encouraged to call to set up a tour and or appointment with the Parent Coordinator for more information.

If you don't care about your child's academic future and have no intention of she/he have college options send them to this school. This as mostly other middle schools in the district are a disappointing failure to the students in preparing them for higher learning in the future. This is a hang out spot to continue the students on the track of underclass, the lazy principal and the teachers can be proud of that. The stats make it seem better than it is. I got a transfer so fast it wasn't funny. My child graduated with honors at a different public school, is ahead with the regents and in a top specialized HS looking at university options. We would not have achieved this if we remained at this school. Every child deserves the same opportunity and training. This has been and still is a flop at the kids' adolescent cross roads.

From the top to the bottom this school is headed for self destruction. The principal walks around with his gold tooth & fancy suits and obviously shows no concern for the students and the same attitude is felt from the burned out staff. I hope the boys academy puts them out of thier misery and saves the children of this community!

This school has about 1 Excellent teacher. The others range from barely satisfactory to extremely unsatisfactory. The leadership in the teachers is extremely weak and it rubs off on the children. The school offers no honors or advanced classes. The school has only one sports team and there are very limited challenging academic rating.
