    This school is very impressing I feel that this school encourages students like me to succeed. The most impressing teachers are Ms.chiriac and Ms.randazzo because they never stop trying even though sometimes were annoying. All teachers are good in their own way. They have taught me how to not give up and learn.Before i used to get seventy nine percentage on test from my previous school and now I get ninety and higher.

    This school is amazing. They do not tolerate non-sense especially higher authority staff- whether or not your child is doing good or bad - the entire school staff will not give up on your child. And god forbid your child is out the best thing about it is you will get a phone call ) I went there in the 80's it was horrible when my son entered the school I was paranoid but now I could not be more proud. Is 347 is the place to atten

    The quality of academic programs is very poor the teachers do not show incentive in trying to really teach the kids what they need to learn in order to succeed the school has a bunch of semi-young teachers whom only care about building up there social status with each other as well as with the kids their interest is not in that of the children they are suppose to be teaching. The numerous times that I have been up to the school to either speak with the principal or the deans I can never get a hold of any of them when I do call the school the phone lines are always busy as if the phones appear to be off the hook. I must say that the art teacher that my son has is one of the many teachers who is really into teaching his students. This school gets thumbs down.
