Achievement First East New York Charter School Reviews

In the begining having my child in this school , but now she is in the second grade, I really don't agree with the rules they have for the children, i believe they make rules as they go along. the staff memmbers take days to get back to you when you call. It's a bad picture for me and i'm not satisfy with the outcome. My child will be leaving this charter very soon. Thanks for helping her reading, writing and math, but it's time for us to move on.

My daughter did well with her education @ this school.  The staff was supportive and caring threw her 5 year's in attendance.  Her reading level is very high and her math is on target.

I feel that there are a few areas that need improvement. The communication between parents and staff when things happen like no bus service needs to be better commnunicated.

Also the system of behavior needs a great deal of improvement. My daughter was horribly teased, and then towards the end of her 4th grade year the verbal teasing became psysical.  I reported it to the new dean of students and he looked into the matter quickly.

A lot of the children have behavior issues that i feel are ignored that effect the children that do not have these issues.  My child is transferring to the middle school i feel more comfortable with the rules they have about behavior and violent actions.

My son is completing five years (K-5) at AFENY Elementary.  It's a bittersweet moment that he is leaving onto bigger and better things at his Middle School.  The family is sorry to see Principal Reid leave after five years, but we are grateful he was there for our sons' five years.  Mrs. Cymrot is the next Principal in charge and we are confident she will make an amazing Principal.

I encourage all parents to get involved with their scholars class and school.  The school needs parents that will be advocates not just for the school but for their scholars.
