    "i dont like this school 4 many reasons. in math class the teacher wont let u sharpen ure pencils in class, if she dosent like u she wont let u get a tissue 4 ure nose. my teacher in our 40 min math class period, spends 20 min screaming at students over nonsense! & giving us lectures on why were SO disrespectful meanwhile shes the one thats disrespectful. she is taking time out of class over screaming and blaming us students for nonsense. also she is my afterschool teacher & when she helps me with my hw some of those answers are wrong. in la, compared 2 last yr it wasnt bad, but test prep wise very! we bearly did test prep because she was 2 busy having us finish our class reading bk. in ss class, our projects in 2 write a poem, rap,song,etc. thats hw not projects. also she asks the class many times wat our hw should be. many times she dosent even have our lesson plan so we need 2wait 15min so she can get it done. in sci class, his class is so boring that kids sleep in it. he spends 15min talkin about his daughter. we do no labs, & if we do we examine rocks. also he barely gives us projects, & for 2 quarters he didn't check our hw. this school needs help & i hope they c this review!"

    "Unfortunately through out the years I have seen a deterioration in this school. The teachers are not reaching out to the students and parents. It seems that it is not as organized as far as finding new strategies and new teaching methods for students to advance more. I am very disappointed and hope they implement new programs...."

    "The teachers have very poor judgement, meaning if a student has a difficult time understanding what they are learning they don't make the effort to help them understand. The school is very disorganized also..."

    "My son, has just graduated after attending this school in the 8th grade. I whole heartedly would without any reservation recommend this school. Caring, involvement, and thoughtfulness of their assistant principal, Mr Hayden, has exeeded any possible expectations. I am also very pleased with the overall quality of education, safety, friendliness of staff, and concern for children. This school was a transition between private schooling and Brooklyn Tech where he is going to in the 9th grade. Excellent school."
