John Dewey High School Reviews
I WAS IN THE FIRST GRADUATING CLASS AT DEWEY. I AM APPALLED THAT THE CITY IS TRYING TO CLOSE HER. GET THE ORIGINAL DEWEYITES INVOLVED AND SHOW THEM WE MEAN BUSINESS AND IF WE LOSE LET TAKE THE SCHOOL DOWN BRICK BY BRICK AS TROPHIES.
The review made above is EXTREMELY INACCURATE and INCORRECT. "I would not recommend this school for a parent who wants their child to get a good education" is wrong, first of all there will always be one or two teachers who misguide you or aren't supportive. It's inevitable.
Secondly, "there are no sports" wrong. Does this person even pay attention? JDHS has cheer-leading, soccer teams as well as volleyball and track and field teams with upcoming basketball and American Football. So PLEASE focus on the facts.
Thirdly "hang affiliated young men right outside the campus harassing and robbing students" there has never been such a hearing of robbery or harassment. There is even security guards all over the outer parts of the school (even in the trains) to protect Dewey students.
Finally, the person above has failed to focus on what's really going on in the school and the amazing numerous AP rigid classes it offers, along with an amazing Social Studies and Art departments, extra tutoring and the Key to Knowledge campus. This school is beautiful, and it doesn't look like a trashy typical school like Murrow, Tech or 90% of what NYC high schools typically look like.
I would not recommend this school for a parent who wants their child to get a good education. there are no sports and there a lot gang affiliated young men right outside the campus harassing and robbing students. The guidance counselors do not follow up with the students properly to ensure the students graduate on time. Students have found out they would not be able to graduate a semester before graduation which is absolutely terrible.
