Not so good as you may think
When I moved to NYC IS 125 was my older son's first school. The first day of class they left my son all day in the office without eating or going to the bathroom entire day. When I picked my son up from school he said to me in Spanish "Mom, I'm starving and need to go to the bathroom." He explained to me how he was left entire day in a chair in the office which was full of people and was promised to place him in one classroom but that never happened. When I addressed the situation with the director, she said "What you want me to do?" I said she can promise this will never happen again and she said "that never happened" even when the secretary was discussing that my son wasn't relocated in one classroom because "He does not speak English". The thing is, we recently came from Puerto Rico at that moment and they knew it, but the reality is he speaks English. However, you will find good teachers and good education in this school. You may think everything is ok if your child doesn't give you details. On the other hand they search children when a teacher is missing something. This happened a few time while my child studied at that school. They can go to your child and force him to show the bag or can call your child to office to check your child's bag while he is there. My son did not understand why this happened and he felt afraid that someone was against him and wanted to damage him.
Teachers are nice.
It's good school for your child.I LOVE it there.
