IS 51 Edwin Markham Middle School Reviews

By , a Parent on

My son is finishing up his second year at this school and I am very glad I sent him here. The new principle has been fantastic for the school and really seems to have turned it around. My son loves how many different subjects he is exposed to in I.S. 51 along with having art and media classes. Every teacher that I have talked with, either through parent teacher conferences and/or over the phone has been great.

IN THE ELEVEN YEARS I HAVE BEEN LIVING ON STATEN ISLAND I HAVE NOT HEARD ONE GOOD THING ABOUT IS 51. MY DAUGHTER IS GRADUATING FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND 51 IS OUR ZONED MIDDLE SCHOOL.I DO NOT WISH FOR MY DAUGHTER TO GO THERE. IT IS DANGEROUS. THE NEW PRINCIPAL VISITED MY DAUGHTERS SCHOOL A WHILE BACK AND EVEN HE SAID TI IS WILD THERE.WE WILL NOT KNOWINGLY PUT OUR CHILD IN HARMS WAY.THIS SCHOOL IS NOT SAFE AND NEVER WAS.

I went to this school a couple of years ago. This had to be the worst years of my life. Almost everyday random girls would come up to me and ask to fight(mainly because I was one of the few Caucasians around). The ground floor was known for its "bum-rushes", Which meant whenever it got a little crowded people would start pushing as hard as they can, trampling other kids and punching on occasion. I got into one about three-four times and I only go down the ground floor once a day because the lunchroom is located there and I had to. The violence as a whole was insane. They lock-up Burger King on the corner because almost everyday there is a gang-fight there.

The school has its bad teachers, but that doesn't matter when you are in constant fear of your life. And I'm a pretty big girl too. Don't let your kids go here.

I sent my 3 daughters to 51 and i had no problems at all they did well and my son is going in september. Most of the middle schools are the same if ur child or children focus and mind there own they will be fine!! Just a suggestion for the teachers in 51 please call as many times possible if a child is not doing well or absent alot or acting out of charicture because it is important that u care!!! dont worry about what the child or parent thinks that ur calling me being the parent i wouldnt love getting a call but it would let me know someone cares about my child!!

Horrible school teachers could care less. Half my sons’ class can barely speak English and classes are overcrowded. Do not send your child to this school!

...[A dean] was mentioned in the news due to a horrific letter made crudely. He misspelled many words, and didn't get...approval of sending a memo home to student's families. It's sick. There ARE gangs, and there are lots of fights. The education is good, and only parts of it are, like LA, and SS, Sci and Foreign Language. Edwin Markham is the worst Intermediate school on Staten Island, other than IS 72.

i love the school is51. Its amazing . The teachers there are really good I think i really got a great education. People usually say that our school is bad that we have gangs, fights, problems but that is basically just fake. The assistant principals, deans, and guidance counelours are really helpful and looking to help you with what ever you need. Im not afraid to tell them whats going on in my life and tell them stuff thats happening with people.
