The teachers are great! They help the students with any questions they have and encourage everyone to do their best.
Overall Experience 2016-04-01
Being that I've been in this school for six years I would say that it's been an interesting experience. Coming to this school in 6th grade was strange. It was an all girls school where we were able to call the staff by their first names! It was unique and comforting because there was this sense of community and not so much as a barrier between the students and staff. It made having conversations much easier. However with the addition of a new principal, this changed. Has she made improvements throughout the school? Of course, however an "improvement" she made was removing the policy of addressing teachers by their first name. If i had to do it all over again, yeah, sure,. I mean it wasn't bad it was great! But I can't shake the feeling of what if? What if I went to Stuyvesant? Would I be different?

The experience I've had at this school has been quite okay , it could have been better . Hopefully the school is still working progress. some cons of this school would include the school cafeteria is not always clean , as well as the bathrooms , only a little parents attend the pta meetings and we don't have many clubs.
The students at my school learn what is significant in life, most of the topics in our textbooks and a great amount of what we need to know. We graduate with a mindful of knowledge and expertise in certain areas.
There are a variety of classes each grade can take. Depending on what grade you are and how many/ which credits you have.
I believe that the teachers at my school are regularly available to communicate outside of the classroom. However it is sometimes noticed that some emails may go unnoticed or not very helpful in solving a problem. Yet this is very rare.
The teachers at this school are very helpful and are very beneficial in encouraging you to be successful and to get high grades . When they find that one student is struggling they help them by offering tutoring services after school or during there lunch period and not only that but for example the trigonometry teacher offers tutoring during lunch and she always recommends us to use this website , KhanAcademy . The teachers have very great interest in students way of teaching due to the fact that they encourage the students ideas as much as possible in helping them learn the best way they can . The reason I didn't rate this school a 5 is because it's not always clean , there could be more teachers , we don't have physics , we could have so much other clubs , we don't have a track and there's always drama .
Teachers here care about you and your future. They want you to succeed and grow as a person.
The teachers at my school are usually understanding and are open to handing down the control in the classroom as long as the students respect the rules.
Not all teachers in my school use technology. Few teachers are not organized and lose students work. They all try their best to engage students and make them run the class. Their consistency in grading is adequate.
Some teachers have really bad attitudes, they do not have patience what so ever. They are willing to help you only when it is convenient to them.
Teachers do thier jobs I guess. Some barely. Some are lazy and some use thier phones during class. However many teachers are available after school for tutoring which is good.
They all have varying personalities.
The classes aren't hard but they do deserve a good bit of your time. The scheduling can be challenging at times but for the most part you get your necessary classes.
The only AP class we have is Calculus. We do not have any honors classes. A lot of students fail classes and fall behind. At times the teachers teach too quickly so we do not understand.
I feel like I'm not learning much.

Being at this school for about 5 years I can honestly say that my school isn't too bad but you have to be your self to get through a lot of the things you go through here. Sometime it becomes a challenge to keep your mind focused on work because a lot of the girls here have the worst attitudes in the world. It can also be hard if u don't know how to handle attitude when it's given to you. Sometime it comes from the most unexpected people like teachers and etc. But if you always stay true to yourself and have enough self control then nothing you go through here will effect you and impact you in a negative way.

My favorite experiences in this school are the field trips. My class loves to learn new experiences and have fun.
Overall Experience 2013-10-01
I really would not want to go to this school again because there really is nothing to do after school. There are not any clubs or organizations that many students re interesteaded in. However on thing that does make my school unique is that we are an all girls school.
