    "My son attended East-West School of International Studies from 2008-2012, his experience there, from my perspective was a very good one. My son was very challenging to teach and his principal and teachers were caring and patience with him. He graduated and decided to attend a vocational school to learn more about his passion music and becoming an sound engineer. My son is presently working and doing the job he loves. I decided to write a review because I was listening to Mayor deBlasio's speech about his new educational policy about "community schools." The Mayor must have gotten that idea from Mr. Sherman, the principal of East-West, because that is exactly the way Mr. Sherman runs his school. He cares and the teachers care, but they sure could use more funding to do more. All parents feel welcome and when there was a problem with my son, the teachers would contact me via phone and emails. I appreciate everything."

    "I strongly recommend East West to my friends. This school is a bit small but well organized. My daughter is going to 8th grade in September will be taking SHSAT some where in October. If she can get a better high school, will be great. Otherwise she can stay in East West till 12 grade. Looking forward!"

    "My son and niece both attend East-West. They transferred from our zoned middle school which they hated because of bullying and overcrowding. Now at East-West, they love the school so much and most importantly, feel safe at East-West. This is so important to my sister and I who are both working moms. For our children to love school and feel safe is priceless. The administration, faculty and staff all contribute to this exceptional asset at East-West. We are so grateful! Thank you so much."

    "My thoughts on the East-West School of International Studies. My reasons for attending East-West were simple, I wanted to learn Japanese, however as time drew on, reasons for attending became more complex as they do multiply. These were the reasons then become the very things that make you stay. This is because East-West isn t your average run of the mill high school. This school is small with close to if not more than 600 middle and high school students, densely packed on the top floor of a school building shared with a middle school, thus giving you the chance to converse with students who reside from various backgrounds. Yes, this school is incredibly diverse. Even amidst the teachers and staff most of them hale from different creeds and have their own unique way of teaching and working, however every one shares kindness and respect for one-another. This is an ever changing school with tons of unique people, possibilities, and opportunities."

    "I am a East West alumni for middle school and currently an incoming senior at another school. I cannot say that I had some great times at East West, but what I can is say that the teachers are all who like what they do. The teachers are all extremely helpful and willing to stay after school to attend to the students. Some really great teachers left when my year graduated, but the principal, Mr. Sherman is still there. He is a great principal, and he really cares about his students. However, East West is an incredibly small school. This may seem like a small factor but it is actually a really big deal. East west has a middle school and a high school. This means that you will see the same people for 7 years. By the third year, I already wanted out. I can honestly say that I got along with everyone in my grade. Everyone was everyone's friend, but even then, seeing these people everyday for 7 years just didn't cut it for me so I left at the third year. Bottom line-- East West is a great school, small class size, but would only recommend people to stay for middle school. ( Unless you want to be stuck in the same environment for 7 years.)"
