My son, has just graduated after attending this school in the 8th grade. I whole heartedly would without any reservation recommend this school. Caring, involvement, and thoughtfulness of their assistant principal, Mr Hayden, has exeeded any possible expectations. I am also very pleased with the overall quality of education, safety, friendliness of staff, and concern for children. For my son this school was a transition between private schooling and Brooklyn Tech where he is going to in the 9th grade. Excellent school.

This school is highly educated. They are brought into the 21st centry by allowing the students to have "tablets". Each teacher is nice, friendly, and highly motivated. They encourage their students to try harder and work well. There is a safe atmosphere when you walk in the building, as well as a friendly one, since you are greated with a smiling secuity officer.
