Brooklyn Amity School Reviews

not a good choice

By a Current Student on

Personally I never liked the school. I am not a native speaker and the teachers in there barely speak English. This does not help any student to get acceptence from good colleges. Don't you ever send your child in that school. PS: the lunch is horrible.

Great School in the neighborhood

By a Parent on

Brooklyn Amity School has small class size, safe environment and caring staff. I always struggled every morning to send the school before enrolling him at Amity school. Now, he pushes me to go to school on time. He loves his teachers, and classmates.

Regrets

By a Former Student on

Wow everything written below is so true. I regret coming to Brooklyn Amity school as well. And this is coming from a student who has actually been in the school recently and actually was inside the classes and speaking with the teachers. Worst school ever. If you want your child to be with from potheads, go ahead send them but for a better education, do not send them. Trust me they can get a better education in public school compared to this money eyeing school. This school is based on unfairness to students and I don't think this is the type of environment your child and you as a parent would want. Plus no sports, and for a gym they have a small little tiny room with no equipment or windows.

A Nice School

By , a Parent on

I would say it is a nice school because, even though the school does not have enough facilities, you can see hard work there. My child personally loves her teachers and I always see smile face there. When it comes to academic success, school should be blamed but parents and students are also responsible. Could be better but it does not mean it is not o nice school.

I hope it helps.

Regret ever stepping foot into this school

Worst private school in all of New York.

I would have been accepted to better colleges if I were to go to attend another high school.

Not a good choice

By a Parent on

Horrible school.

Trust me when I say you are better off sending your child to a public school. Don't waste your money.

Their staff/teachers English is not good at all. They had trouble understanding what I was asking. I personally did not feel comfortable sending my child to a school where my child speaks better English then her teacher.

Sad to say I thought it might have been a good choice to send my child, but after going there I was very disappointed.

I am very unhappy with this school. I agree with the other parent that the school focuses its attention and resources on the top students and leaves the struggling ones behind. This shows a clear lack of attention to student's learning levels. Last year my child did not receive math homework and I do not understand how math instruction is handled if the children aren't given problems on which they can take home and practice.
The entire organization seems disorganized and their teaching methods resemble non-American standards. They should require teachers to have a stronger grasp on the English language.
However, considering public education in this city is so inadequate, this seems to be my child's best option.

I agree with the parent of the tenth grade student below.  All of the resources of this school go to the best students.  
* The administration is very disorganized and inconsistent.  It is difficult to get accurate information from them.  
* Many teachers struggle with English and do not have a background in pedagogy.  Many students also do not have strong English skills, which brings down the academic level of the school.  
* It is not necessary for students to come to school on a regular basis.  There are no consequences for excessive absences.
* Teachers frequently miss work.  
* They claim to focus on science, but there are rarely lab activities in upper level science classes.  
*  They make inaccurate promises to prospective parents.  
* Students are often given inaccurate/unrealistic information about college because the counselor has a very rudimentary knowledge of American universities.

I have son in this school, he is 10th grade; I rate this school below average because it is a private school, I would rate it average if it was public school. I expected a lot more from private school. If your child struggles at any educational level then you better look for other private school or for very good public school. The teachers are strictly concentrating on straight “A” students, students that love school; but they pretty much neglecting students they don’t like school that much; the teachers won’t contact you if your child doesn’t show-up in school or if your child didn’t attend some of the mid or end periods; they won’t contact you if your child’s performance is worsening, or he/she didn’t do homework. School doesn’t have a GYM, the class-rooms are so small, some teachers are from Turkey and their English is very poor so it is hard for students to understand them. They need to have a principal who is able to keep everything under control, but instead they have a principal that is too mallow and in my opinion – a person that does not fit for the position as a school principal.
