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.
