This school is a very unsafe school. There are always fights, insulting, yelling, etc. Some of the students here are beyond disrespectful, and when they get into fights or harm someone they get suspended for a few days and are seen in the same classes. i have never felt safe here, and the administrators are terrible at helping a victim of bullying. That being said, most of the teachers are good at teaching, and are very strong teachers. There is a science/engineering program, a tutor program, and advanced classes. I have mixed feelings about this school, but you should decide whether you want to go, or if you want your child to go.

My child had the WORST experience at this school. Bullying and fighting at this school is awful and rampant. I was told that teachers are not suppose break up fights between students. Basically a fight can turn into a free for all and does.

School principal told us that our A student should "not attend the after school program" as a way to avoid bullying. When a child told my son that he would "snuff him", the counselor said it was a "normal middle school experience" and that the (the school) "could not control the behaviors that the children brought from home". God! STAY AWAY!

This school has excellent teachers who maintain a passion for their subjects despite the constant struggle with poverty that plagues our city schools. They have on and off-site tutor programs, band and chorus, art, an engineering club, as well as affiliations with the local Universities (LeMoyne, Syracuse University, Onondaga Community College).As a 2nd year parent, I've been in the school during the schoolday plenty of times, and I know that problems are addressed promptly and effectively. Although the overall scores are not great, my son has been able to take advanced Math, is in an AVID program (Advancement Via Individual Determination), where capable students are focused on a college-track curriculum and goals. I've always been treated with respect by teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, etc. and my concerns have had a good airing and actions taken. My son has done great on state exams, so I know the teaching's effective.
