Personally, I think that the AEP program at MS#4 is amazing! I cannot speak about the General Ed and Hope program but I have good things to say about the AEP program because that is what I am part of.When I had my first day at middle school, I was amazed by how smart my new teachers were. The AEP program is challenging and you have to work hard all the time.On some days there is a lot of HW.Math seemed a bit hard in the beginning of 6th grade but that was partly because the teacher was teaching out of syllabus concepts.I was surprised to see the math teacher offering free lunch tutoring to all the struggling studens. I remember once that our 6th grade maths teacher had a surgery and he was checking assignments, answering students queries from the hospital right before the surgery. We were blown away with the level of his personal involvement.The LA teacher Mr Cierakowskly made LA very interesting and fun. Mr Sinprastha the science teacher would always play fun science games with us and give us study guides. There were many clubs to choose from like debate, coding ,carpentry, health dance.My favorite was debate and carpentary. I found the coding class very basic n boring. Last year MS 4 stood second at the Robotics competition.I also got a chance to participate in the Spelling bee and Martin Luther Debate contest. The debate teacher also enrolled many teams in the student cam project which is a national documentary making competition and one team actually stood 22nd nationally.There are many sports offered like basket volleyball and track, where you can compete against other schools and peers. The program was cut earlier this year due to a lack of funds but they are back again now. A few days ago I was selected for the national junior honor society and there was a nice oath ceremony followed by breakfast with the parents and teachers. At MS4 this ceremony takes place in the 7th grade.There are also Asian Heritage, Hispanic Heritage celebrations in which students participate. When I was selected for the AEP program I was actually selected to go to Academy we got it switched to MS4 because they liked the downtown location much better and as per Ms Ianetelli both the programs offered exactly the same curriculum.Most of the kids in my grade living in downtown just walk to school.
