Open Quote The teachers are not only bad but they are also biased and they bring their biases into the classroom. The teachers at this school reuse past lessons that don't work for the majority of students and that is evident in the test scores, some teachers don't even come up with their only lessons but they use lessons they get online which is may or may not work for the majority of students but the teachers don't care whether the students pass or not since they bring in their personal biases to try and bring down the students they don't like. They do this by giving the student a lower score on things like essays, participation, classwork and yelling at students for doing something annoying like asking to go to the bathroom or talking, deny a student a letter of recommendation, or openly mocking students in class. This negatively affects students grades and consequently creates an antagonistic environment in which fights happen constantly. It's not just the students who are affected but the teachers are as well which is why all the good teachers who taught the subject well and get high regents scores have left for better opportunities like the french teacher who now teaches at stuyvesant.

Open Quote All of the teachers that were were keeping have left for better opportunities like the french teacher who teaches at Stuyvesant right now(check the French regents score for this score in 2011 and compare it to now). The teachers who stayed have essentially given up on their profession and reuse lessons that may or may not work for the majority of students, some teachers don't even come up with their own lessons, but they get their lessons online. If that wasn't bad enough, the teachers don't even try to hide their personal biases and they pass along these biases onto the students. This comes out in the form of racism, yelling, intentionally low grades on students work usually based on racial bias, denying a student a letter of recommendation (also based on race) and a myriad of other unethical actions. This creates an antagonistic environment between students and teachers where the teachers treat students with less respect than they deserve even as they're about to graduate, and makes students want to act out which is why fights are so common, you can't light a fire without a spark and the teachers are the spark.

Open Quote This is a good school that I feel is often overlooked by many. The teachers are great, they really care about their students, they help them whenever they can, most go beyond and the students for the most part are good kids,( problem students are dealt with swiftly and effectively by the administration, there are a few bad apples in every bunch!) my daughter made some really nice friends here. The guidance department is there for you if you ask for help with anything from class schedule, advice on classes, to planning for your child's future, they are very good and they care. I found the level of caring by all here to be better than most schools that I hear of. Of course your child and you must do your part to ensure they do well in school and their future. And let us all hope that the NYC School System gets their act together because they are the ones that are failing our children, our schools, our teachers and us. The school is good, send your child, be proactive and they will do well. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
