Review: This school is very good. Before i moved to the Bronx myenglish state test was a level 3 and after i moved it dropped to a level 2.They dont have any social groups so your child won't feel left out when first entering the school.Thr teachers take thier time with you to help you understand this would be a good choice for your child to go to.
