This school is absolutely fabulous. Speaking as a current seventh grade student, I love it there! The teachers are kind, funny, and always willing to help. The classes are always interesting, and I now love classes that I used to hate. The atmosphere is wonderful and the anti-bullying policy is strict ...  Read more

This is definitely a good school, in terms of quality and cooperation. But I worry that Transit's reputation for academics overlooks something that has been the undisputed bane of my daughters' existence- the homework. My eldest daughter, for example, qualified for all three of the 8th grade advanced ...  Read more

lazy teachers, useless administration and an aura of medocrity

Posted by a parent on 09/30/08

Transit, for me, has been a little clique-ish and has had a few disadvantages, but overall I really enjoy it here. Most of the teachers I have had have been amazingly helpful and have cared about how well I am doing, only a few have judged me because of my one older sibling (although, he was quite a ...  Read more

This school is probably the biggest nightmare i have ever had to deal with. My kids would come home crying because the administration is so corrupt and the ladies in the office are no where near pleasant to deal with. Granted, the academics are strong, but the atmosphere is horrible. There is a reason ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013.

The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
