NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York City Department of Education announced plans Monday to close or phase out 17 schools.
Earlier in the year, the Department of Education identified 60 struggling schools – 58 district schools and two charter schools – and asked for feedback from the local communities on what was working and what was not. For schools that have been struggling, the department plans to implement methods it hopes will lead to improvement, including leadership coaching, professional development for dealing with struggling students, new programs, reduced enrollment for a smaller learning environment, and possible administration changes. But a parents’ group said closing schools is the wrong way to deal with the problem of struggling students. Niche's rankings are based on a combination of statistics from public databases and user reviews.
Most of the schools on Niche's list are magnet schools, meaning they pull in qualified students from around their city.
Students at Stuyvesant rave about the opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and how prepared they feel for college, with one student saying, "I felt that the educational opportunities at Stuyvesant prepared me to be leaps and bounds ahead of my peers at college.
STV provided construction management services to the New York City School Construction Authority for the $100 million conversion and replacement of boiler systems in 43 public schools throughout the five boroughs.
I spent the last week in New York City following up with administrators, teachers, and students at several public high schools that I visited the first week in January. Monday: At the first high school I visited, I introduced a teacher to the Haitian-Creole native language translation feature on the Reading Horizons software.

Tuesday: I observed a couple high school ESL classes who are using the Reading Horizons software. Wednesday: When I visited this particular high school in January, I had an opportunity to do some model teaching of the Reading Horizons direct instruction method for a couple ninth-grade classes while ten or so teachers from the school observed.
Thursday: I spent the whole day at one particular high school on Thursday and was able to meet with several teachers and visit several classrooms using the Reading Horizons software. Friday: I had the opportunity to go to the Board of Education building to meet with network administrators Janine and Geri who are helping to oversee the Reading Horizons pilot.
I also was able to meet with a friend Shaun Parry, Broadway performer, as I was heading out of town. I'm grateful for all the good that goes on in individual classrooms in various corners of the nation and the world. Do you have an experience with witnessing unrecognized good being done in the classroom, in either a traditional or a non-traditional context? This blog shares information about the lessons I've learned (and continue to learn) from my experiences traveling the world while creating curriculum, conducting teacher training, and teaching literacy and English to Speakers of Other Languages.
Based on this rating, FindTheBest has come up with a list for Business Insider of the 10 best public high schools in NYC.
The school recently opened a state of the art television studio, which allows for both in-school broadcasts and student produced features.
American Studies is located on the Lehman College campus, and students have access to their gym and cafeteria. All students have to complete a two-year classical language requirement in either Latin, classical Greek, or Hebrew. Students take two periods of science each year, and many finish their math requirements by their sophomore year, allowing for AP courses and electives.
About 75% of students study German for their foreign language requirement, making for theA largest high school German program in the United States. Brooklyn Tech uses a major system for upperclassmen classes, and students can apply for a specific major a€” options include BioMedical Engineering and Media Communications a€” after their sophomore year.
Founded in 2002, Eleanor Roosevelt has quickly established itself as a top high school and just graduated their eighth class of students this past May. LaGuardia served as the inspiration for the move "Fame," about a group of students at a performing arts high school in New York City. Did you know that the New York City public school system used to have its own custom made cast brass doorknobs? These doorknobs date back to the the Progressive Era and were installed in the late 19th and early 20th century. The New York City Board of Education started to offer free secondary public education in 1896 and put forth an ambitious plan to modernize the designs of schools.
The students who manage to catch the attention of admissions officers overcome exceptional odds, but they should maintain some perspective.
Since the ranking began in 1984, Goldman is one of just five companies that made the list every year. Meanwhile, the Green Dot Charter School in the Bronx had a four-year graduation rate of nearly 99%. The university has the luxury of being extra choosy because of India’s large population and the vast number of students with outstanding grades and test scores. At the end of the process, the department decided there was no hope for speedy improvement for the 17 schools set to close or be phased out.
News' yearly high school ranking, Stuyvesant came in at #69 nationally, and #12 in New York state. The purpose of my visit this time around was to discuss the Reading Horizons pilot that is currently being conducted there. He was very excited to learn about this feature since he has a student in his class from Haiti who is frustrated because he wants so badly to show what he knows, but his low level of English proficiency limits him.

These students come from backgrounds with various challenges which impact their motivation to be in school, let alone their motivation to attend the remedial reading class that a stranger (myself) was teaching. The Reading Horizons program is embedded into their school schedule during SSR (Silent Sustained Reading), which means that several teachers and students are using the Reading Horizons program. Its "smart rating" is based off of Quality of Education scores and Student Progress Reports. These schools represent all five of the city's boroughs, and specialize in everything from science to performing arts. STV was responsible both for recruiting personnel and for the administration and coordination of all construction services, including estimating proposed work, development of schedules and maintaining a strict budget. I visited one or two public high schools each day, riding the subways to various parts of the city, including Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, and walking to the historical school buildings (some days in the rain and snow, which added to the adventure). I watched the teacher enthusiastically activate the Haitian Creole native language translation for his student and then call his Haitian student over to show him the words and instruction translated into Haitian Creole.
I had an opportunity to do some model teaching of Reading Horizons direct instruction at the end of each class.
Their body language upon first meeting screamed, "I dare you to teach me something." Needless to say, this was a challenging teaching experience for me (but I enjoyed the challenge).
He is the founder and director of Promethean Spark, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching life skills through the performing arts to impoverished children throughout the world, including India, Africa, and Central America. Curious about the relic, we were excited to see Ephemeral New York just posted an article about the doorknobs two days ago on where to find them.
Then I watched a huge smile form across this student's face as he saw and heard his familiar mother tongue, recognizing that this tool would help to break down the language barrier that has impeded his progress and confidence since he has been in the United States. Since that time, the students have been using the Reading Horizons software, and I had the opportunity this visit to go back to the classroom to see how these students were responding to the software. These teachers have taken the Reading Horizons program and run with it, collaborating with each other, helping each other where needed, and teaching each other new things they discover that work well with students. He had just barely flown in to New York City the day before after being away for three months in India and Kenya. For 50 years, 1010 WINS has been a news and information utility for the New York metropolitan area.
I was also very impressed with their principal who is very supportive and wants to ensure that her teachers have what they need to be successful. They responded that Reading Horizons helps them with the following skills: reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. Their teacher has implemented a reward system for students as well, which an enthusiastic student (pictured here) oriented me to. Each student's progress through the Reading Horizons lessons is charted on a poster hanging on the wall. They are also awarded for coming to class on time and staying on task with a free day once in awhile. I was particularly impressed with one student who was previously resistant during my first visit (though he did start to soften up by the end of my class). This student goes online and works on the Reading Horizons program at home (out of his own free will), and then when he comes to class, he tells his teacher to update the chart with the lesson he has most recently completed. In addition, he has told his teacher that he doesn't want to go to the other reading class because he wants to finish Reading Horizons, and he doesn't want to take his "free days" because he wants to get through Reading Horizons software.
