Irwin Altman Middle School 172 Ratings & Reviews

August 30, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I was extremely excited to register my child to this school. I was excited for the road ahead! While entering the building a parent came that was exiting. Their child graduated and they were just picking up something. They told me I wish you guys luck, they are truly racist here. We were coming from the city, from a prodomintently All white school. We never experienced racism before so I just brushed that whole comment off. I truly forgot about it. I met the principle, my disposition was happy remember I was excited. He then asked me where we were coming from. Then he said he knew our elementary school principal and asked me his name. I “excitedly” told him his name and talked about how great the principal is. We had a great relationship with him. Then I realized the principle did not know our old principle.. (perplexed I was).Obviously our records WOULD show were we are coming from. Is it that unbelievable that a black family could be coming from that more affluent area...Then day one in English class. A white teacher whispered to my child in class. What’s your address:/.Then next thing you know we had someone unexpectedly at our home investigating. I asked other parents “not like us” if this happened to them as well. Since they too were new to the area but NO it did not! Then the first quarter in. The assistant principal gave my child’s academic records to a complete stranger over the phone. No one else is on the Blue cards but myself. She never even met me, and she gave information over the phone. Hypothetically, speaking. What if... we relocated to run from an abusive relationship. What if we had a restraining order against the person who called / was trying to locate us (which we did). Yet, we never received an apology! Instead, it was a combative and defense argument. The assistant principal had a very entitled and wrong and strong attitude. I could have taken this situation all the way up to their superiors, in addition to news channels but I did not. A simple sincere apology would have been nice but I guess I wasn’t deserving! For the most part we encountered good, caring teachers. Yet, with that experience above and in every single grade there was one teacher that seemed very “left” with us. Made the middle school experience uncomfortable and made me worry if my child was being targeted.

It's a good school. The new hours are very fitting now, it's 45 minutes lower than last year. The teachers teach the lessons with skill. I would recommend this school to many.

This school has a lot of extra classes to participate in like cooking,music,vocal,wood shop ,drama,computers,math games forensics and I haven't see any bullies or have been bullied but the principal should get invoked more and they re the good teachers, bad and extraordinary teachers. I ll miss this school and can't believe I'm graduating.

I've been going here since September 2010 (my 6th grade year) and it has an absolute bullying problem. The dean in charge of helping, does not do his job. I've tried the principal and even the assisstant principal but none of them had helped either. Only two people are amazing at helping: A security guard and An 8th grade science teacher. I also don't like how I wasn't placed in Intergrated algebra. My strongest subject is Math and every year in elementary school, I scored a 4 but on the Ela I scored a high 3. This high 3 was one of the reasons I wasn't placed in sp. In seventh and Eighth grade I was placed in special help class "ex:731 or 831". This kind of helped me recieve 90% every marking period but the only thing I really wanted was to be in sp. The 8th grade assisstant principal, told my parents there was this "waitlist". Honestly, they need to switch the standards for sp. People in sp are failing and some non sp students are excelling. 3 months ago I found out I got into a specialized high school. I was ecstatic. A lot of people in my grade got into QHST, Van buren, Bayside and Francis Lewis though. If you want your child to go to an amazing hs pick a better school please!
