I couldn't disagree more with the parent who wrote the above review. I teach at this school, and I can swear to the fact that the vast majority of the staff in the building are incredibly dedicated. Most work in afterschool programs, and many worked over the last Christmas vacation to provide extra help to students for the upcoming state English exams. I was one of those teachers. Would you care to guess how many students showed up for FREE tutoring in a small class setting? Out of a student body of close to 600 kids, around 40 turned out. Whose fault is that? The teachers? The principal? As a middle school, we receive kids coming from 4th grade who are reading at kindergarten and 1st grade levels. I would argue that the entire staff of this school does a heculean job of trying to move these kids up to the reading and math levels at which they should be functioning. Last year, the 8th graders from this school were the city-wide champs in the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition, defeating a Manhattan private school in the final round. The 8th grade poetry team won the city-wide Poetry Slam competition. These are remarkable achievements that our entire student population is very proud of.

The quality of academics is extremly low the teachers and staff have zero care for any of the children the school is majority blacks/hispanic and they are not given the proper education considering the fact of them living in low income housing or on other goverment programs not all kids attending this school are in this situation but they are mistreated and not educated properly or treated fairly. Things are not reported to the correct person they ignore situations that should be reported to the board of education as well as autoritys please think twice before putting your kid/kids in this school its not benefically to them and in the long run it will cost you alot. My son has had several things stolen from him and have reported it to the principal as well as other authoritys of the school and they have never followed up until I the parent got involved. Your kid/kids are not safe in this school and they will not learn anything but how to be a negative individual because thats what they can see
