This school is NOT a magnet school. Does not have a working website. Does not offer the classes they brag about. Does not have high expectation for children not in the honors program. They lied to me and the other parents at the orientation.
My daughter attended last year this school. Everything is perfect. Thank you all school staff..
i'M looking foward to my child attending this school. My friends and PTA members recommend the programs at IS 27.
My child has received an excellent education, despite a dysfunctional administration and very little parent or community involvement. But don't take my word for it, decide for yourself.
all I know is this: My son loves going to school. He works hard and since he is a smart kid, is given grades in the 90s. Very positive experience for him. He also enjoys the before and after-school sport activities. keep up the good work.
I would love to be above average as a former student. true public schools in nyc are terrible, concerning where the home students generally come from. however, it's been improving, the curriculars are excellent. however, when I went to high school, I noticed this school did not prepare me enough for English. science and math curriculum is great. the closeness to look out for safety and order is great within teachers. some teachers aren't the greatest role models. but overall, these kids love to come to school b/c of friends and are much better than other public middle schools. I would just hope this school stops faking things, I've noticed the past 2-3 years, some have put on a fake act to make this school sound great. it is, and would definitely be if they actually do the work. they do, but just not fully. in conclusion, the assisant principals are the + side to this school. overall, school is improving and favorable over the other ones.
This is a great school which is motivating the students in higher learning. The informational are great.
The curricular activities are good, but the behavior of students is bad
Im A Student At IS27 And I Say Its A Good School Other Than The Freshmen Friday. Were The Older Kids Beat nUp The Freshmens. They Don't Pick On The Honors Kids, Though. I Give This School 5 Stars, The Teachers Are Nice, The Scool Is Clean, Has Better Lunches Than My Old School, And I Already Got 7 Friends And A Group Of 5, And Im Leader! :D
The curriculum challenges my god-daughter and also allows her access to a wide range of extra-curricular activities and a diversity of students and teachers.
i honestly love the school. i am currently going there and moving to eight grade in september. i love the teachers and how they all teach. they are always watching out for us too! GO MUSTANGS!!

Middle school is a tough place for most students to be. Not much can be done about students' attitudes, but teachers and administrators play a vital role in making a school an effective and safe place to learn. My experiences with both daughters who graduated Prall is that the staff is generally above-average. The deans & assistant principals are responsive and caring; Mrs. Kornish, the principal, has an open-door policy that makes her accessible to parents who have a wide range of concerns. Someone is always patrolling in the hallways to make sure things are quiet and orderly. Classmates gave my younger daughter a hard time, but I was always able to go to the Assistant Principal of her academy for support.
i am a seventh grader here, and i must say it isnt as bad as a 3. it is a regular school, and of course there are going to be fights- show me a public middle school that doesnt have them. the teachers are wonderful, and there are different academys and different oppertunities, which makes it interesting. the academys are- journalism, enterprize, and engineering. the school has wonderful arts programs. drama, chorus, and band. I am in band, and the teacher, he is fantastic.there are languages, spanish and french, i am in french, and the teacher is amazing herself. it is a wonderfull school, and hope to see you/ your child there!
This school has an amazing range of education for the student and is a great learning experience.
27 is a wonderful experience for any child. Although the school has a tough student population, the staff ensures the saftey of all students. Staff is out there every day making sure students get home safely. The school is beautifully decorated and there are so mny after school programs offered. This school continues to improve academically, too.
I currently go to this school. Im in 8th grade. I had a memorable time there. I love it here even thought the principle is very rude. I do enjoy being in the band program, and when I go to high school, i will miss it. The teachers are nice, but the school needs A.C. It is extremly hottt =)
