    "I am grateful to teachers, my daughter learned a lot from them, especially AP classes taken on Chemistry and Calculus helped her in college. My daughter did know English well when she came to US but in 2 years she was accepted by more than 10 universities. My sons is also a student at FDR, and he is doing well."

    "Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School is one of the best kept secrets in Brooklyn and maybe all of NYC. The diverse student body makes FDR truly a global community of learners. After school activities include competitive sports teams, and academic teams such as the theater guild, mock trial, and a wide variety of clubs and interest groups from robotics to origami. FDR also hosts events such as talent shows and multicultural fairs. The student body is strongly encouraged to participate in community events such as breast cancer walks, community clean ups, and other community service. Teachers at FDR are equally ethnically diverse as its student body. The teachers are caring and experienced professional s that set realistic expectations that best prepare students for post high school life experiences. For community members FDR High School offers after school programs in English and computer literacy. Overall FDR equates and/or surpasses many of the other schools in the surrounding area."

    "I attended FDR from 1999-2003. Lucky for me, I was able to stick with taking honors and AP classes for the most part, where the class sizes were smaller and there was more individual attention given to students. Otherwise, in the non-honors/AP courses, the curriculum was way too slow, class size too big, and there were too many "problem kids" who were not interested in learning. There was quite a few pregnant people or parents in my gym class! My graduating class had only 400 people - what happened to the other few hundred??! Didn't graduate in 4yrs. Or only went to Kingsborough. I'm just happy I got out of there and actually went to a good college. Currently working on my PhD. No thanks to FDR, I worked hard not have to go into the "regular" classes. I call it the school of hard knocks. I'd never send my kids there."

    "Great High School. Teachers were excellent. They were very involved with each student. Offered many different extra curricular activites and clubs which helped to express myself and learn to work with others. Prepared me for the next step in my acedemics, which was college. They have a great campus, very clean and well maintained."
