This is the best school in the city. It is very organized and structured. The teachers and principal are extremely bright, hard-working, and caring. The children are happy and not stressed out. There is a true community, culture, and identity at this school. I think it may be one of the top ten schools in the state. I am fortunate to have my child at such a fine NYC Public School. What I know: Excellent academic programs, Cooperative Learning School, Interdisciplinary Curriculum, Motivated Students, Middle School Students Complete 3 HS Courses: Living Environment, Earth Science, and Algebra, HS Students complete and earn up to 24 college credits in grades 11 and 12. Many middle and high school sports teams: wrestling, basketball, tennis, crew, swimming, bowling, volleyball, etc. Two bands: both middle and high school, marching band, all students must learn to read music and play piano beginning in grade 6 School has two new science labs, in process of central air conditioning installed, parents are supremely involved.
