This ischool is one of the best public schools in the city. They have excellent extra curricula opportunities for students like band, music, chorus, glee club, chess clib, Art prpgram, just to name a few. The curriculum is great, and the students' achievement is on the high side of thr city's average. There's plenty of ways for parents to vet involved. The PTA and Administrators appear to have a very good relationship. It's an organized and well managed school. The entire community works together.

School is not parent friendly. Gifted or not, if a problem occurs, school administrators become cold and unattentive. Administration cares about getting an A rating and not about their individual students.. School has a good art teacher, but due to scheduling conflicts with Fillmore Academy, many 207 classes do not get Art..There is a poor music program, chorus, band and recorder because they lack good teachers... Gym teachers from both 207 and Fillmore Academy are great, but due to scheduling conflicts, the elementary grades do gym in the auditorium throughout the winter. PTA is just a fundraising machine..unwelcoming and does not give back to the students, such as supplying water and snacks during outdoor festivities for free..

If your child is gifted, not a problem. You will have the red carpet treatment. If you child is not gifted or even special ed, you get no treatment at all. There is no extracurricular activities for regular students. There is theatre & newspaper, but only the gifted students has access to them. If you go to the open house for Fillmore Academy (6-8) you get the tour from only the gifted students. The regents for the 8th graders are only given to the CIG students. The principal does not want her grades to go down. There are no lockers, so your child must carry around 25 lbs of books on their backs, all day long. Award ceremonies are for the gifted students. No other student will ever receive an award for anything. Don't know if there are any athletic awards. Probably not. There is a lot of parental involvement. There is a strong PTA in place. Unfortunately is is also very clicky. All you need to do is stand in the schoolyard & figure out who is in & who isn't. I have been in the school for a few years & I talk from experience.
