This review is for Girls Prep Middle School. Mr Farkosh is a poor leader and this school is sinking further and further with him as it's principal! This school sets the children up for failure. Mr Farkosh tried to give my daughter detention for being in the hall without a pass. She was in the hall because her teacher told her to go next door to get chrome books for the entire class and didn't give her a pass. Mr Farkosh told me that it was wrong for the teacher to send her on an errand BUT my child is responsible for ASKING for a pass since the teachers see over 100 kids a day and it's hard for them to remember to hand out passes! REALLY MR FARKOSH? So my child has to be punished for the incompetence of your teacher. I think NOT! The entire school 6-8th grade is crammed into 1 floor which causes the children to be late for class, which in turn they are also given detention for! There is no structure in this school! Teachers are quitting and parents are pulling their children out! My daughter is graduating and I am so happy to be done with this wreck of a school! I have a daughter who attends Girls Prep Elementary and she WILL NOT be attending Girls Prep MS. I would NOT recommend sending your daughter here! Mr Farkosh has no idea how to lead a school and he will fail these children miserably!

I had a good experience at this school until the new principal was hired. Sadly she is not vested in the girls, the school, or her staff. Ms. Stevens the new principal does not greet the girls during morning drop off. Unlike her predecessor she does not no many of the girls by name. Ms. Stevens is rarely at unity meetings, an event used to celebrate students and their accomplishments. Ms. Stevens does not respond to parents concerns in a timely manner. Her respones are often deceptive in nature. There are classes being taught by poorly prepared substitutes. Teachers are constantly leaving the school. Ms. Carroll, Ms Mercano, and Ms. Hannity are awesome, but there is only so much they can do. This school is a sinking ship, a ship without a competent leader. A leader who was hired and came from a failing school that she started. Whom ever hired the current principal has no interest in our children. Like other parents, my child will not be returning to Girls Prep Bronx in the fall.

Teachers and staff really care about the students in the elementary school.

I have worked at Girls Prep Bronx ES for many years and I am amazed each day by the hard working community members that make this place a success. Students, families and staff partner together to ensure that students are learning. Commitment to college is demonstrated by the emphasis on setting up and donating to 529 College savings plans.
