    "As a local community member living in a caucasian neighborhood, Westchester, I hope more local kids will attend to increase the school population to become more diverse. Too often, the neighborhood parents think they have to send their children to other schools b/c the school is not diverse enough. Great new principal. My only suggestion is that perhaps they might introduce one more program. A gifted or highly gifted program where these kids just take classes together as one group (no mixing with the other non-gifted programs). When parents see a program where these gifted kids can work at a higher pace and caliber, the school will become a more desirable place to go to. They can start with just one class. The new principal recruited new teachers from stellar schools who are so impressive that I doubt even the private schools have such teachers. Why? Public schools pay twice as much to their teachers than private schools do. Surprised?? Please remember most private schools are for profit. If u were a credentialed high caliber teacher, where would you teach? Public school! They also have better benefits. Private schools do NOT require their teachers be credentialed."

    "The administrative staff LIVES UP TO the poor reviews that have previously been posted. During enrollment, the office Admin Assist. gave my son's original birth certificate to someone and told him that she couldn't remember WHO she had given it to! I've called, needless to say, it's still missing! No one, not even the principle has bothered to return any of my many calls regarding the matter. I've written a letter to him directly and still, NOTHING! Enrollment was a problem from the start! I accepted my son's placement at the school before summer break, prior to him starting 9th grade. The day all new 9 the graders were to attend to get class schedules, we were never informed! I just happened to be on the schools website looking for information & discovered that we needed to be there. When we got there, my son was in the system and was issued an ID number & was able to get a school ID, but there wasn't a class schedule for him. After running around from one office to another, I was flatly told that his spot was given away without ANY explanation! We had to show up at 6:30 am for a lottery process for a chance to re-enroll!!! This will be my son's ONLY year there. Staff is a jk!"

    "The administration at this school is unprofessional and lacks the experience to be effective. The attitude here is reflects this. They are know it alls who really don't know how to run a school or deal with a parent.'s concern. They refuse to be supportive of a child who wants a particular class in order to achieve a better educational experience. They provide excuses as to why they will not act according to the child's interest and are only interested in enforcing different rules for different people. My suggestion is to not waste time trying to talk to them, they won't listen. Go immediately over their heads if you are not getting what is best for your child."

    "This school has really improved from what it used to be. Their test scores and academic programs have greatly improved, and rival any of the top-performing LA Westside schools. The students have access to real-world resources, and are getting new iPads this year."
