In just 1 school year you can already see the Impact that Mr. Barone the new Principal of IS 27 has had. The school has a long way to go but they are definitely on the right track.

Numerous documentation of my daughter's incidents of being bullied are in school's file. 3 out of 4 months with her feeling scared because nothing was being done about it. The way this situation ended? A school transfer. This school's anti bully policy is pro bull! If you want a safe environment for your children, do your child a favor and do NOT enroll them in IS27 until there is a new Principal and new Deans that enforce better control over the safety of your children. By then, I'm sure, your kids will already be graduating college by the help of other proactive schools. Keep far away!! My husband, daughter and I could not believe how the faculty shrugged off and dismissed the fact that my daughter felt unsafe and in fear of her safety because kids can apparently be physical with no repercussions or consequences. P.S. Principal is so unprofessional and didn't even introduce himself or ask what our issue was when we walked into the general office at 6:30am. Inconsiderate and obnoxious, I rather pay for my daughter to go to a private school than her deal with the fear that no one will help her where she is SUPPOSED to feel and BE safe when not in my watch! Good RIDDANCE!!

Teachers are great! I have a very strong negative opinion about the way Mr. Sherman (6th grade dean) and the "new" principal Matthew Barone handled my daughter's bullying problem.

My daughter has been going to 27 for the past 2 years and she will be transfering out this year to go to the Academy. To start off, student behavior should be more controlled, fights happen every day and little is done about it. One day, a child bit my daughters finger in the school yard last year and she still has puncture marks. Some teachers could do a better job. One of my daughters teachers for english was pregnant since school began and she had to take a leave for the last marking period. All the work that had to be done in a 2 month period for english was forced into her last week before maternity leave. During the last marking period the majority of my daughters class (a scholars class) was dropped at least 5 points for their english grade. The principal does nothing to enforce student behavior besides the dresscode. The only announcement that she made personally all year was to make sure that girls specifically had shorts longer than the knee(an outrage and a double standard). I applaud the deans and APs for doing most of the controlling and going above and beyond their jobs. Furthermore, IS27 makes itself out to be better than it actually is. It's far from the magnet school for applied learning that they advertise on their front door.

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 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.
