My son Alex is entering his third year at Brinckerhoff and we couldn't be more pleased. The teachers, staff and PTA are so involved, they seem to be my son's family away from home. We look foward to another year and so sad to think that he only has four years left. Mrs. Platz is amazing and we are very ...  Read more

If your child needs any help academically this is not your school. When my son was struggling I was told by the teacher and principal that he would have to be special ed to get help. Teacher told me "we are not allowed to stay after to help students." If you speak out for improvement, you are in ...  Read more

I live in Hopewell Junction, borderline to Fishkill and I have three kids in this schoo. A rating of 5 our of 10 does not do this justice. The faculty, parents and kids have all been fantastic. I would give this school at least a 7 if not 8.

I love this school and have remained here despite the need to move. We have put off the move until my son is out of Brinckerhoff and onto middle school. Though I believe that some of his teachers need to become more involved, the overall feeling is one of partnership with the parent.

My boys love the school. The afterschool activities are great and so is the before school activities like 'circus act'. The teachers are really involved in making these kids into well rounded people.

I love this school. The teachers and staff are caring and responsive. The assistance to the kids goes well beyond the academic work - they teachers are truly concerned with the kids success.

This school has taken a turn for the worst since the new principal, Ms. Platz has come on board. She does not show leadership qualities. She is very weak in disciplining students. The teacher quality has become very poor over the past three years.

I have four children. Three of mine are in John Jay High School right now with the fourth in Brinckerhoff. The educational experience (for my children as well as myself) has been phenomenal. The student teacher ratio is great - The staff is open to parental support/involvement and the children learn ...  Read more
