Oh lord, do not send your daughters here. As a teacher (and a not-small person), I felt physically unsafe (there were frequent fights in the halls and classrooms and, in some memorable moments, some gang incidents outside of school. The principal and other administrators did nothing at all to discipline
... Read more students and seemed more concerned with keeping suspension rates down and grades inflated than with maintaining any kind of discipline. In my first week, I sent a student to the principal's office for threatening me in the classroom and was told that the administrators had more to worry about than a few students' behavior. (It's worth noting that I've taught in other NYC public schools and that UASCJ was not my first job.) Unless this is literally your ONLY option, keep away. Read less

here are several reasons why you SHOULD NOT send your daughter to this school. 1. the administration of this school is uncaring and unsupportive of students, teachers, and parents. parents are often treated with disrespect by the principal, especially those parents who do not speak fluent english.

Read more 2. due to administration's treatment of teachers, there is a high turnover rate of faculty, which is disruptive to the students' education. 3. there is no foreign language or music program during the school day. 4. Administration does not always punish students who routinely act out. These students become out of control as they know that the administration will not enforce the teachers' punishments. Read less

UASCJ does not embrace a theme of criminal justice nor does it allow our children to transition into adulthood. The school witholds an unorganized and distributive display of nonsense. The children spend most of their time in the hallways rather than in the classroom. The core values and mission statements
... Read more described within the UASCJ website are false. The unprofessional and irresponsible manner of the principle is the main reason I have elected to transfer my child to another school. As long as she withholds her position as principle, your child will remain unsafe from bullying and harassment. The principle does not completely commit herself to provide a safe, secure and comfortable learning environment for your child. If you strive for progressive and academic excellence than think twice before allowing them to attend UASCJ. Just ask any mother outside the school. Read less

Well parents, I agree with you about the 'clicks', the cursing, the bullying. But one hing I dissagree with is the teachers control over the students.
