  • Recommended January 17, 2011 - Started QSI this year in eighth grade. Prior school was accelerated and we needed an advanced curriculum. Being a 6-12 they had the courses we needed. I could not ask for a more responsive environment. There is great flexibility regarding classes and my daughter will complete most regents by end of ninth grade. They are an early college school so she will then take college courses for credit at Queens College. Other schools with screened programs would not accommodate accelerated students; she would have to repeat courses already taken. Staff is available to work with students who want to further explore their fields and my daughter is thoroughly engaged in her education. There are many clubs and they will create new ones if students are interested. Highly recommended for advanced academics in a small school environment where educators make sure the bar is set high for those who are interested. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
