I have two children in this school and one on the way. Excellent School! Ms. Miller turned the school around from the former principal who was only there 2 years. Ms. Miller is working hard each day to make positive changes. I would not hesitate sending my child to this school. She encourages parent ...  Read more

I am a former 606 student and now a 704 student. My experience from elementary school to middle was easy i ended up with a 91 average. But for some with puipulpath (new grading system) had been hard.

The school is great. My daughter just started 6th grade there. She really enjoyed the classes and the activities. Teachers are energetic and devoted to their students.

A school is as strong as its support both within the building and at home. Young developing teens come with their own issues that must be addressed on all levels. Boundaries must be set and be consistent in order for these students to prosper educationally. Teaching children positive behavior begins ...  Read more

Not that great of a school, the new principal seems complacent and unwilling to make any good changes, and does not discipline the students well enough. Staff is ineffective for the most part and unless you go to an outside learning center, nothing will be learned of importance save for a few teachers ...  Read more

This school may be a bit strict, but the staff is really caring. I don't understand why the parents are all up and complaining because their child was doing poor.

I love this school! I was in 622 (an SP class) going to 723 (7th grade SP class) next school year and during my first day in 6th grade, after meeting the principal, dean, assistant principal, etc., our teacher discussed what we can expect last school year. The staff truly cares about their students and ...  Read more

I made the biggest mistake of my life by letting my child attend 194..He had good grades and since attending there his grades are below average now.

Although my daughter had a wonderful experience throughout her 3 years at 194, my son was absolutely miserable. He hated going to school, he came home with headaches and was failing 2 of his classes. I went into the school and spoke to guidance counselors and assistant principals to discuss his progress ...  Read more
