    "If I could give this school 100 stars, I would. I have to first say the principal, teachers and staff are incredible and very professional. My child had a bad experience at another public school so I transferred him to John Dewey and crossed my fingers. Well, my kid loves this school so much that he was upset when school ended in June. His grades even went up. He actually signed up this summer to help the incoming freshman. He adores the teachers, staff and students. The school is like an extended family. They really do care for their students and the teachers even call the house to remind the parents of upcoming exams. The atmosphere there is just phenomenal. I've met all the kids there and they are wonderful and my kids have become friends with so many of them. I write with such enthusiasm because both of my kids attended catholic school and are blessed and fortunate to be students at John Dewey which is both safe and cares for its students."

    "Dewey is a diamond in the rough. When I say that, it's because it has long been surrounded by failing schools--yet Dewey perseveres. Dewey's unconventional methods of instruction and liberal progressive education pedagogy has excelled for decades, accepting students from across the city and the community, and while the philosophy has been recalibrated to serve a different population in recent years, Dewey still sends its top students to Ivy League colleges and prepares them for not only college, but for life. The diversity is also fascinating. I've seen students from Tibet and Mongolia here; few schools get to say they have such students. Overall, this school is a great one. It could improve through grants and a larger budget, I believe. This is not the school's fault, however. Public education needs to be supported more."

    "As a student and writer for Dewey's school newspaper, I realize that Dewey prepares its students for college well by providing free out-of-state college trips to students of all grades, offering more AP classes than your typical NYC public high school, and by providing an interesting mix of classes and electives: from sociology and culinary arts to ceramics and robotics. Dewey also helps its incoming freshmen through a one-week long Summer Bridge program. One fourth of the incoming class (Class of 2017) attended Dewey's Summer Bridge program. The incoming students visited colleges, received a tour of the building, built social, academic, and team skills, and participated in various workshops. This program helps ease the transition from middle school to high school. I'm very happy to be at John Dewey, as it has prepared me both intellectually and emotionally. The teachers here also are very dedicated, and come from different corners of the world. However, as stated previously, the school could improve by expanding its music and theater departments."

    "Dewey is a wonderful school. It has the best teachers and very helpful staff. Dewey is one of the nicest place one can think of going to. Dewey is not just a school , Dewey is like a family, or just like a big community to me. I like my teacher the most. Also all the students are very friendly and helpful. I think by adding some electives program like music, dances, more arts calss which Dewey had some years ago, but dosent have it now because of of the budget cut will help Dewey to improve a lot. I love Dewey. Its a very welcoming and friendly place."
