The students work hard and WANT to have good grades. Good teachers and excellent Asst. Principals. Unfortunately, the office staff needs a review on people skills.
my daughter is very happy at is 34 and she just began 6th grade and loves the independence
I feel the school is extremely organized and dedicated to education and structure
It has brought out the best academically in my child; and has made him strive. The teachers are very caring and work very hard to have the students achieve beyond the goals that are expected
staff are really top notch.The kids enjoy learning with the teachers they have.
My niece and nephew are both students at this school and I am impressed by the curriculum!
we've only just begun however the obvious caring has made the scary transition into intermediate school an easy one. It's history of academic excellence is known.
It's a great school. The music program is excellent and the students are always ready for testing and the future.
I have two daughters that graduated with honors from IS34. They made all the high schools they wanted to attend. My oldest received scholarship money for college. This is due large in part to the education they received at IS34.
I.S.34 was and probably always will be my daughter's favorite school. The teachers are very kind, and the quality of education she received there was top notch.!
It was the only intermediate school on Staten Island to achieve an A!
kids have some really amazing teachers here. But they have to take care of bullies! Too many bullies to count, and too many kids being hurt and harassed. It's a shame to see an otherwise incredible school be tainted in such a way. Please do something - somebody!
For the most part, I will say that my kids have done very well here at I.S. 34. Both my boys absolutely love their teachers - especially Mr. Barr. Mr. Viola is top notch when it comes to math, and in making sure that students feel confident in their math skills. Both of theses teachers go the extra mile for their students! However, the issue of bullying is one that really needs to be addressed. It's out of control. We've had several issues, and the only punishment those kids rec'd was 'in-school' suspension (which basically amounts to detention). If they don't address this problem, some kid is really going to get hurt. This is the only problem we've encountered here at I.S. 34, but it's a real problem that must not be ignored. When schools say, 'zero tolerance' they should really enforce that principle.
IS 34 is full of dedicated and friendly teachers. It's an excellent learning environment. The accelerated courses they offer in 8th grade will help your child get ahead in high school.
IS 34 has the best students and staff who accomplish wonderful things together...
It is reassuring that the Administration and Staff take time to help all the new students to adjust to middle school life.
