The NYC School Quality Snapshot and Guide informs families about a school’s strengths and weaknesses, emphasizing how far students have come in the past year.
According to research, schools that are strong in the following six areas are more likely to improve student learning: rigorous instruction, collaborative teachers, supportive environment, effective school leadership, strong family-community ties, and trust. Both the School Quality Snapshot and the School Quality Guide provide statistical information on schools and the results forming student achievement.

Quality Review Report
A quality review report was conducted 2014/2015 and the overall evaluation was WELL DEVELOPED (WD).
The Quality Review Report describes what the reviewers saw at the school — what life is like there. The report identifies some of the strengths in the school, as well as areas where improvement is needed with suggestions for making improvements.
The Well Developed rating earned the school the highest grade for highly effective teaching and learning practices, strategic school management, and an excellent quality learning environment.
The Quality Review Rating is based on three major categories of school performance: instruction that prepares students for college and careers, school organization and management, and quality of the learning environment.
