    "I love ms 217 teachers and clubs. Great principal and administration. I am a seventh grade student and i am in Sp (special placement). My teachers from sixth grade helped me prepare. There is some competition and great school spirit."

    "217 was honestly one of the greatest 3 years of my life and although it is great, there are still some imperfections. Most teachers actually try their best to teach you what is needed for you to pass major tests (a.k.a, State Exams, Regents, etc.). Also the food here is your typical NYC crap food, but not the absolute worst. Students here for the most part are friendly, but as always, there is always that little crowd that craves drama and involves itself in both verbal and physical altercations, so, just stay in the right crowd and you'll have a great experience here at J.H.S. 217."

    "M.S. 217 is the best school I only studied there for the last few months of my 8th grade but the teachers and the principle are amazing the way they actually attrack the students to go to school. its a free zone school. they have clubs and activites where students can join. the teachers explain the material as easy as they can so that he students understand, they have after school for if you need extra help. They have sports that athletes can join have fun and enjoy. they involve the parents in everything they can so they know what their kids are up to and can keep them up to date everyday. The food is healthy and fresh. Their facilities such as, the computers, chairs, tables and desk are new and up to date. They make you ready for college and your future."
