    Harlem Academy is truly a hidden gem. This is my son’s second year at this school. I chose Harlem Academy because I truly believed in their mission to provide an educational environment that provides opportunities for all students. My son has blossomed into a thoughtful, well-spoken, critical and independent thinker. During my time at Harlem Academy, I noticed that the upper school students are unique, well-grounded, and driven individuals. This school caters to each individual student’s learning styles, interests, and personality. Their mission is about developing the whole child; therefore, techniques are in placed to support them. I am so thankful to his teachers and support staff with supporting my son’s development and making learning encounters more relevant and effective for him. I have no doubt that he will be well prepared for high school!

    This school can help kids become smart, but kids still come out dumb . Besides that the teachers suck, the school is broke, the school is depressing and it’s just everything bad. The only good thing is the kids that go there. Hopefully this school changes because when I went there it was really bad . 1-4 grade is not terrible but when 5 grade comes it just tumbles down. Rethink about letting your kid go here. And the lunch is the worst thing I ever had in my life. Also it is rat and roach infested.
    My son has been attending Harlem Academy for the past 2 years and he loves it! The staff creates a warm and open environment that promotes a positive environment for my child to learn and develop. His teachers go out of their way to make learning a fun experience. They also make a genuine effort to help with his progress and development. I highly recommend this school.
