    I.S. 381 is an excellent school. It has been a fixture in the community for over ten years and provided many students with an enjoyable and highly educational middle school experience. Though administration can be lax with their school-wide behavior management policy students rise to the occasion. Teachers at are mostly passionate and dedicated. Lastly parents/families have shown their reverence for I.S. 381 by sending multiple students to the school. I.S. 381 embodies the concept of "school as community."

    Well i graduated from this school and i say its ok. It wasn't challenging enough for me but good thing i had that support system at home. Honestly your child is better off in Cunnigham Bay Acadamey or Mark Twain. Luckily i worked hard to get into Goldstein H.S. but other kids who were not encouraged and didn't have that support system were not as lucky. If you're considering for your child to go here you should visit the school first and the environment in which the students learn.

    this school has not lived up to expectation. The school is small but teachers and Ms harrington hardly return phone calls. Ms harrington is always in a meeting. Things happen at the school with my child i didnot recieve a phone call no one keeps me informed. the parent coorindator is powerless she is not informed of what is going on with some children. I am disappointed that I sent my child to this school. Small is not always better

    The overall quality of this school is great. Ms. Harrington knew my name and was able to walk into the classrooom and say hello. The teachers are friendly however certain teachers when I was there were unqualified. They however have left and the school is wonderful. I also love the uniform. It promotes education and students no longer have to worry about what everyopne else is wearing.
