My good friend went to junior high here and she is extremely smart. She ended up going to Stuyvestant for high school, then to NYU for college. Very advanced in math and the sciences. I think there was a probably, however, with rowdiness. But, what junior high doesn't have rowdy adolescents running through its halls? According to my friend, there were some really excellent teachers there. Of course, there were other not so great ones in the mix. But, overall, the education at this school prepared my friend for high school and her college career. Compared to other junior highs, this one is definitely up to par in the education department.
