One out of five because lots of different problems from the kids to the staff to environment.
I am in this school and I myself think that it's a great school because It has great teachers and the first day I went to school a made so many friends. The only thing I hate about this school which made me give this school a 4-star is its environment which is really aweful but except for the environment everything is great in this school and I am saying it because I experienced it and I am telling the parents that it's a great school and your child will surely enjoy being in this school!
All I can say is that I am glad that my son will be done with IS8 in a couple of weeks. I believe that this school could be so much better with a better supporting cast. That is the teachers, the parents , the community. It takes a village to raise a child but unfortunately the village around this school is not very positive. Parents must realize that the respect and behavior must begin at home. There also needs to be more programs guided towards tutoring instead of sports and parties and such. Big Props to the S.O.S. program.- That's What I'm Talking About - Positive programs to inspire our youth.
this school has always been horrible! most of the staff could care less about these students with a handful that actually do. some of the better teachers have already transferred to better schools.most of the children are from a tough neighborhood where increasing violence is active and there are very little extra curricular activities offered to motivate students. programs often get canceled because of short staff or school budget cuts. there is limited intervention/support available for troubled students as well as no existing parental support. the teachers are not willing or able to control the students or motivate them. i would not advise any parent to send their child to yhis school
