    Eagle is a great school. Our Eagle Scholar was able to attend a school that we felt was safe one with a caring and educated staff which was the most important thing to us as parents of a teenager in Brooklyn New York. There are not many schools that offer what they've offered our son. The principal Mr Meade is a force to be wreckoned with. We wish all the best of success to the eagle staff and young men.

    My son is a 6 grader and is new to the school but I love the way the school operates. This is a tough school but its only tough to build strong men. This is a great school for young boys that don't have a role model or searching for an identity. I want my son to be strong and independent and I know this school will help me teach him how to be just that.

    As the PROUD parent of an Eagle Scholar I was shocked to learn that the school only received 3 as a great schools rating. My son is entering his 3rd year at Eagle as a 8th grader and I must say that my son has excelled at Eagle Academy for Young Men. Eagle has helped my son to grow 5 levels in reading in one school year is preparing him to take and pass the High School Regents while still attending middle school and grooming him to be a globally competetive young man. Mr. Meade the principal of the school is always accessible should a parent or scholar has any questions or concerns. He personally greets every yound man in the morning prior to them entering the school building to begin their day reminding them to maintain eye contact and have a firm handshake. Qualities the confident men possess.
