  • 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
