New Dorp high school is a wonderful high school, my child is getting a wonderful education, has a group of great friends, and is happy, the principle is a caring wonderful lady, who cares for all students. teachers and staff are great, would recommend this high school
I'm not sure yet In the process of establishing a new IEP for my Son. I will follow-up when I see some results. As for right now they have not helped him with his issues with possible ADHD and behavorial Problems.
Its the most wonderful school in the world.one of the greatest schools with great disiplant the school has. The kids are controlled I would definitely send my child here
I would reccomend this school for everybody there academics got better I don't care what anybody says I recommend it for you others probably don't know what there saying but. I know this school very well has many clubs as much as the principal very nice and the student will listen
I heard this school is great so I took my kid and he loved it the principal is great and the lunchroom is always clean and have a great disiplant in the children I recommend this school
I would not recommend this school to anyone. It's so difficult to get in contact with the school. If you are lucky enough to get in contact than they still don't help to inform you on anything that you may have asked about. They are also a very over populated school which causes a lot of choas and destruction within the hallways. Since the school is overpopulated they have many teachers and staff members teaching subjects that they are unfamiliar with.
I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL to anybody!!! It is so frustrating to see how things are handled inside this educational complex. My children tried out for so many sports teams and later found out that many coaches are not even familiar with the sports they are coaching!!! The only reason why these "coaches" got the position is because they are friendly with the administration. Can you believe it!!! What a nepotism, and the worse case is that NOBODY CARES to do anything! I even heard that there is a coach who never runs practices, doesn't train the team properly and leaves early. He is just there to get a paycheck. I spoke with other parents, they said they tried to reach the principal and the athletic director without any result. Clearly, the administration supports this type of behavior and work ethic inside New Dorp High School. Maybe, that's the way the run the school and that's why the school is going down the drain in the past year. My children came from catholic schools and unfortunately they landed at New Dorp. I hope next year we are able to transfer them to Tottenville HS.
I really admires the merits and the excellent job the school have for parents although am not a parent in the school but opt to my hearing from other comment from people. Keep up your hard working.
I highly recommend New Dorp High School. This school is a wonderful school to be apart of. My daughter is in her fourth year attending this school and loves going to school everyday. She has taken many challenging courses as well as college course to prepare her for college and for her future. Throughout her four years she has admired and looked up to her teachers who have helped her grow and learn so much. As a parent who is very involved in this school, I have seen how New Dorp is run inside and out and I am extremely impressed with how Ms. DeAngelis runs this school with a firm hand but in a loving way her staff and students. I have never had a problem reaching out to a teacher or staff with any concern or issue I encountered. My only wish is that teachers would attend the PTA meetings and there were more parent involvement. Parent involvement in a childs schooling benefits the child and the school.
New Dorp is a great school. This is my second child attending in the Corporate Center For Business & Technology Institute. A sophomore this year and loves it here. My oldest child graduated from ND with honors (Math and Science Institute) the staff is Super &The Principal is AWESOME!!!! We love you Ms. D, keep up the GREAT work with the Green, Gold & White!!!
I see the kids come out of that establishment every day and cannot fathom what it must be like for the quiet children who for whatever reasons end up going there. There is clearly no discipline, teachings of respect or control period. The kids have filthy mouths and the conversations are always about "jumping" someone tomorrow. I don't understand how it is even possible to get an education in a place like that.
Originally I was very nervous about sending my daughter to New Dorp. This was the only school that she wanted to attend, even though she made ever catholic school that she applied for. After careful consideration, my husband and I decided to allow her to go to the school that she wanted to go to but we told her that we would pull her out and put her in catholic school if we felt it was not up to par. She is finishing sophmore year in the Math and Science Institute and is a 90's student. The program is extremely challenging but there is guidance every step of the way. The teachers are always there to help (free 9th period tutoring and free regents prep). I feel that a public education far surpasses a private one in every way. The principal, while friendly, is extremely capable of controlling and disciplining this extremely large school. She will get down and dougie with the students one minute but insists on being respected and is definitely looked up to as the principal. I am extremely happy with ND and recommend it to everyone. I would also say don't have doubts about it-sending your child to this school will be the best decision that you will make for their education.
I'm just got into New Dorp High School's Forensics Program, and I hear that it's an excellent program
my son is in the math and science institute this is an excellent program. He has great teachers Dr, spindler is the best. I highly recommend the program.
The math and science institute is the best and so is Dr. spindler and Mr.. hubbs. They are very dedicated teachers.
This school is an amazing school. The teachers and the principal are very dedicated and hardworking. They are also very friendly. Before attending this school, i was very scared of the school environment and i thought that the teachers didn't know how to teach. I really thought that it's horrible school, but then when i went to this school i realized that it was a wonderful school. The teachers are very sincere, they care about our grades and they are always on contact with our parents. The school environment is also very safe, and there is security everywhere making sure that the students are where they are supposed to be. People are relying on New Dorp's old reputation that was made almost 20 years ago. New dorp really changed now, now its an amazing school that really enriches its students with the power of education.
This school is great. I came from a spanish country without speak English and in 4 months I learned how to communicate in English almost prefect. Teachers are great and very helpful.The school is safety, I never had a problem with anybody, of course there are conflicts between students but that happen in every school and every where, so if you dont want your kids to know how to face some kind of problems yo should live them at home, because this is real life. I come every day from the Bronx to Staten Island because for me this is the best school if you want to LEARN. I love this school!!
I'm in the Math and Science Institute, and I've taken all the AP and college level courses and I've always been content with the teachers and the course work offered to me. It's a very rigorous program.
The teacher are ridiculous, some of them don't even speak English very well. The students control the classroom and not in a good way. The security and safety is just cops patrolling the halls and bars on the windows, even that doesn't prevent students from ditching school. There are fights. The food served is awful. And bullying goes unregulated. This is not a school you want your children to attend. -Former student that has thankfully moved to a better school.
