Posted January 27, 2014

There's a lot of bullying from the older kids to the smaller ones. Even in the bus. Glad I took my daughter out right away. No way I was going to let her stay there. Don't let them put your child here.

The parking lot and after school traffic is complete mayhem with pedestrians, cars, and buses all trying to get by on a street that only has space for one way. We've seen cars get hit and many accidents almost occur; it is really dangerous. The whole thing is poorly managed, and it doesn't seem like anyone cares. Recently added 7th and 8th grade, and the school is unorganized. Teachers are okay; but the administration really did drop the ball somewhere over the last few years. Leadership seems to be weak. I heard this used to be a really good school.

School lacks structure and a clear plan. It is suposed to be a high end tech school, it is not. Adminstration is confused and not on the same page. I recieved a letter that this is a school in need. Do not send your child there!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
