Testing in this school is out of control. Educating a student by having them cram information to pass tests is just that cramming not learning. Although a student can cram for most subjects, math is not one of them.Difficult topics, comparable to high school math, are changed and tested every two or three days. The student has no time to learn one topic before they are on to the next one. Sad that this teaching undermines the confidence and ability of so many.

The school has an inflexible policy of zero grade on any missed homework. The end result is a student with good test markes, who missed a homework, winds up with her average lowered. As a teacher, I would always consider whether this is chronic behavior by this student or a possible mistake. Not at Bernstein. This policy in no way reflects the work put in by this child. This and other policies are not about education, but rather setting students up to fail.

Great school with very nurturing environment and individualized approach. Teachers and other staff members know students by names, kids are encouraged to turn to school faculty with any questions or concerns

My child goes to i.s.7 and she loves it the environment is safe and the school is dissaplant but to an understanding matter. if you can seed your kid(s) to i.s.7 they will love it and so will you.

My daughter was bulled by the after school program monitors and this was addressed byt he School Administation right away. Parents needs to know how to report and manage issues for thier children - after all we are their greatest advocates. Any issues not addressed by the school had to be poorly comunicated by the parent. This is an excellent school and another example of how their Administration took care of a problem right away.

My son is in his last year at IS 7, and he has had a wonderful experience. I admit, I wasn t sure how my son would adjust coming from a very small "north shore" elementary school, but he flourished both academically and as a young man. The teachers and administrators have high expectations of the children's behavior and academic performance. They enforce rules in a caring and nurturing way. The friends my son met are great kids. The Band programs are amazing! (Mr. Toro should be recognized for his amazing work!) Overall, IS 7 is a great example that NYC public junior highs can work!

Terrible school. My daughter went there from 2008-2011. She got teased by her classmates and the teachers just look the other way. She hated that school so much that every day she will make up some excuses of not going to school. 3 years in that school was a nightmare to her.




- a
Terrible school in terms of uncontrollable student body and administration. Many teachers are great, but they are pressured to teach to the test. I found myself wanting to learn more, but the school just couldn't provide. My three years here were a waste of time that could have been much better spent.

My son teaches in this school and I hear excellent things about it. I heard positive things from everybody I speak to. This school is called exceptional.
