    "There were two HQ teachers last year--art and English--both left (along with more than half of all teachers). The principal replaced the English department (100% left) with one inexperienced teacher and three fellows (still studying to become teachers). There is no consideration of the quality of education at this school, and new teachers are not supported. In fact, there is no English mentor teacher at the school to help these new teachers. The main problem is that the principal believes she knows what is best and does not follow NYS regulations (hires unqualified people for positions), NYC mandates, or the UFT agreement. Hiring new teachers allows her to take advantage of the lack of knowledge. Special education is another department that is heavy with teaching fellows. Assistant Principals yell at teachers in front of students, degrade them, and treat them with disdain. The teacher turn-over is very high every year--look at the government site: http://schools.nyc.gov/SchoolPortals/08/X282/AboutUs/Statistics/default.htm. Last year's report card is missing from the site . . .. Networks have changed numerous times: YWLN, New Visions, CFN 534, CFN 536. And the students suffer."

    "I have to agree. Do not have your girls go here. My daughter attended this school since the 7th grade and boy does she regret it. As the years went by, the school got worse every year. They lost support from the communtiy and funding. As a result, the girls lost many privileges. During her senior year, she did not get the support and help for college. The school does not offer enough classes. The staff have favoritism. I won''t be surprised the school closes."

    "Although the teachers try really hard with what they have and work hard to educate the young ladies, the administration offers zero support. There is never any money for basic supplies such as paper, books, textbooks, etc, however the administration pays themselves and a few favorite staff members a lot of overtime. Even worse is the fact that the girls are constantly pulled from class for anything from receiving a birthday present from the principal to doing fundraising activities or to just hang out in certain offices, chatting it up. Generally, the girls are appreciative of their teachers' efforts and are acutely aware of the difficulties their teachers face, as well as their own such as multiple schedule changes, schedules not being ready for the first month or more of class, wrongly assigned classes, missing classes, transcripts that are out of date and the list goes on....The school has a lot of potential, but the administration is unorganized, unsupportive, dismissive of teacher input/suggestions and do not make good decisions or even decent decisions with their students needs in mind."

    "I also must agree with the comments left by the parents below this is not a good school for young ladies. My daughter attended this school for two years and I had to transfer her to another school because she was not learning anything. The teachers dont have any control over the girls that attended that school. They only enforce rules with certain girls and let other girls get away with the same stuff. The girls take this school as a joke. I wish I never sent my daughter there. Waste of money and time."
