    My son has been at this high school since 9th grade. Overall I think this school has great academic opportunities. Several admin and staff members have tried very hard to help out my son when he began to slack off. I felt that if my son had more serious consequences for cutting classes that he would be more responsible but I accepted that the best consequence was when he had to repeat classes in the summer time. At this time he had made up classes online and schedule is crazy. I like that my son attends classes at Queens College and is looking forward to join the army once he finishes high school. It is better than my daughter's Francis Lewi's high school where there were over 4000 students and teachers were not as supportive. Every child is different. I would have chosen this school for daughter better.

    Let me get straight to the point. I entered 6th grade for the 2011-2012 year. The teachers attempted to control the students but that didn't go very well. We had a hallway incident early in the school year. Many of the children had already formed cliques and groups. From then there were a couple groups who were offensive to a girl because of her weight. The people I associated with were well behaved and intellegent. Though I attempted to be civil with other students others could not do the same. There was too little home work though.

    My daughter attends this school. We were very happy at the beginning and I still believe that they have a very challenging curriculum with a viable option for college credit. However I was not happy with my daughter's experience with bullying. She was bullied by 2 older students and although these girls were spoken to they continued to sit on the bleachers when my daughter had gym and be present at my daughter's lunch periods when they were not supposed to be there. There should be more security so that students with free periods are not entering the rooms/gym/cafeteria where students are being taught/having lunch. It is a stressful situation when the person bullying a student can just lounge around wherever they want.

    Started QSI this year in eighth grade. Prior school was accelerated and we needed an advanced curriculum. Being a 6-12 they had the courses we needed. I could not ask for a more responsive environment. There is great flexibility regarding classes and my daughter will complete most regents by end of ninth grade. They are an early college school so she will then take college courses for credit at Queens College. Other schools with screened programs would not accommodate accelerated students; she would have to repeat courses already taken. Staff is available to work with students who want to further explore their fields and my daughter is thoroughly engaged in her education. There are many clubs and they will create new ones if students are interested. Highly recommended for advanced academics in a small school environment where educators make sure the bar is set high for those who are interested.

    My daughter has been at QSI since 2007. Both the administration and the faculty are wonderful. The principal makes the effort to personally know each child and their family. Her faculty is young and top notch. They do everything they can to make your child's experience a good one. Knock down the doors to get in you won't be sorry.

    My daughter just started 9th grade at this school-it is just the best publicHigh school in Queens NY. The curriculum the staff the Principal-it is a total package. This school really prepares the students for college and the world. All courses are college level with great emphasis put on creative writing skills. The teachers are caring and very accesible.Principal Ophals run a very tight ship-she is in 10 places at the same time. Children have unlimited use of laptop computers. They graduate from this school with upto 62 college credits.The atmosphere in the school is disciplined and respectful towards everyone.If you are a parent scouting for a high school look no further QSI is the answer to many a worried parent about their child's academic future.You will be totaly satisfied at QSI.

    The Queens School of Inquiry is a great school small task oriented with caring teachers and a wonderful principal (Ms. Ophals) who really takes a hands on aproach. Imagine a principal actually knowing who your child is! The academics are rigorous and because the school is small they can experiment and try new ways of improving the teaching and providing a safe nurturing learning environment. It is culturally very diverse which is also great no one group dominates and children learn to appreciate each other.
