New York City Geographic District No. 8 Reviews

2 reviews
The schools in District No.8 aren't that bad but they aren't that great as well. Some of the teachers are good at what they do and care about students and they want to help them do better. Some teachers don't know how to engage students in the classroom. They make learning sort of boring at times. As a result, students tend to not do good in their academics.

I really enjoyed district 8 while in school because whenever I'd do good work I would be recognized for it. One time the district was nice enough to send me a diploma. Which was very encouraging. Something they could change is the amount of students per classroom.
