    I went to this school for two years maybe all the students might not be that good but the teachers are all awesome specially Ms.sideris and Ms.strategakos there the best ESL teachers in that whole school. They both changed my life i thought of them as a my own family and i will never forget them.

    I went to this school before I moved to arizona (read my tmms one) and I really didn't like this school. I just loved two teachers Mr Desmond--cool dude!!-- and Mr. E --forgot how to spell his name but he's a math teacher. that's all

    I think this school doesnt have really good students and some of them doesnt respect the teachers but the teachers are really great. They are really helpful. but i think this school should really inprove on the safety and discipline.

    i was a student in I.S. 73 and i loved it so much. This school has an excellent rating and is one of the best middle schools. The teachers and students were great! best school i've ever been too.

    This is a cool school...is fun and teachers are really helpful give you chances...and here kids help the community like the builder's club. It's a great school for kids....I will rate this school 5 stars!! )

    Sure this school may have its negative parts to it like crude students disrespectful students who couldn't care less about their education but there are also good things like there are teachers that are willing to help you whenever you need them and staff that is always there for you. This school is pretty cool except for some of the students who are in need of a wake up call.

    The school is very cool. They have a community sponsored builder's club. They help up people and you also earn service credits. It's a great school because you help out the community.

    This school is great. Even though some of the kids are mean rude and pushy but without all of that there are great teachers some nice friends and a great staff. They might be tough on you but it's only because they want you to have the best greatest future of your life! I totally completley recommend this school!! 5 STARS!

    Everybody nowadays is scared to bring their children to I.S.73. Yes the can be problems nowadays but you have to trust your children.TRUST THEM AND TELL THEM TO WATCH OUT FOR THEMSELVES.It is actually a very fun school in a students opinion. It is as good as lady of hope. (Lady of hope is wayy too much money). Teachers are very nice and give you a second chance. Just pay attention and youll do great. (BELIEVE ME.) I am in the school myself. This school is not so bad. Not bad at all actually.

    This is not a great school. Teachers and staff can't manage kids in schoold at all 7th & 8th grades. This school is a SINI (Schoold in need of improvement). Please check it out before you send your children

    This is one of the best schools Ive ever went to and its math programs are beyond contempt. Personally im in the geometry regents class and its basically full of nerds but thats not the point. The school offers tons of help for those who need it and are very assisting. The best thing about this school is that we have a new school yard!!! its awesome.

  • (6 years ago)

    This school is so good even though fighting can be a school issue their just as long as you dont get involved and be in groups everything is going to be amazing i went thier for 2 years and i loved it if u focus on what u have to do the year is going to go flying by.The teachers are so cool and smart they help u with everything.I love it....Omg i miss this school so much im crying

    In regards to the posted message regarding the school cafeteria I must state that for the amount of students and staff personel the cafeteria in my opinion is well maintained. The building itself is going through major work that is taking place and is well runned by the Dept. of Education. Right now the school yard is being replaced by new and improved facility for students to enjoy. The teachers are excellent in their handling of some students who may be rude but the majority of them are there to work hard and get excellent education. We must keep in mind that it's up to the student to do well not the teachers to discipline them and be parents (this should be taught at home not at school). I have a child that attends this school and is completely happy with her classes and teachers. Please support our Public school teachers.
