Open Quote Worked here as a part time art teacher and I must say, by far the worst teaching experience I’ve ever had. I had no support as a new teacher still in grad school. Art supplies were not provided adequately and the supply lady was always rude and had a nasty attitude. They expected giving 3 boxes of 12 or less markers in each would work with over 400 students. Every week or so the supplies would go missing and the art room was used by other instructors who didn’t know how to teach the students to take care of the supplies ! Students disrespected the visual arts which was greatly reflected in the school. The room looked a mess and uncared for with expired paint and ruined art supplies. If this school ever plans to improve their art programming, they need to do way more than just hiring someone to take all responsibility for change and improvement. The real changes happen when the art teacher has full support from the principal. Honestly, this school is a joke and it’s sad that no one there really cares enough to make better changes to improve the arts. The reason why every art teacher/art sub have left is because of the way the school runs and how there wasn’t a supportive art environment. It’s not the children’s fault or problem, but the school’s fault. The school has failed to provide opportunities and changes to create meaningful art experiences for students. Close Quote

Open Quote Extremely bad school. It doesn’t matter if your child is in the stigma program, special ed or regular classes at this school, they are all bad. Either the teachers are so new they don’t know what to or they have been there a while and don’t care. Grading is a disaster. The student body is a mess. Troubled kids are zoned in from gang neighborhoods. Do not send your child here. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter last year had graduagraduated from this school but all I can say that the teacher and ass principal and principal is worst people to deal wit they called child services on me and my wife stating that me and my wife were beating on my daughter and had false claim about us ...at the end I had found out that the person that called child services on us cause the social workers had realized that when she got to my house and noticed that all the stuff that they had claim was all a lie ...and the social workers noticed as soon she walk in my house ..she had told me that the counsel from her school had called them to tell em that my daughter was at hrs office claiming that we beat on her and that I had thrown a picture frame on my wife face ..which imagine the cut that my wife would have if that was true but it turn out we took a drug test just to prove them wrong ,which we did and from then on my daughter was being harassment by a teacher called Mr harvey,which I went to make a report about him to ass principal which she had help us after she notice that it was becoming a problem ,i was actually looking into getting a lawyer to handle this matter the correct way cause I wasn't getting no help at all ....please b careful with this school and please sit down with ur kids and make sure that they getting the right education...thanks for reading Close Quote

Open Quote It is a good, but not exceptional school. I.S.303 is the home of a large family, but with poor school infrastructure and building, lack of enough enrichment programs, as well as a few odd-ducks in the school administration, it isn't perfect. 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.
