IS 289 was overall an okay experience. If I have to be honest, if I could replay my middle schools years, I would've applied for Lab or Salk instead. The teachers at this school play favorites, and some are racist. The learning pace is really slow and I was only academically challenged by 2 teachers throughout all my years here. Although the school is small, he kids are really cliquey, and it's really hard to make new friends if you aren't open in the first few days of school. Coming to this school was a really big regret, but I came out alright.

If I could do it all over, I certainly would come back to 289. The experience was what made it so great. I was pushed both as a person and a learner to work my hardest and that came with great reward. I learned how to plan out my time, work well with others, and made some friendships that went on after I graduated. This school has a large emphasis on collaboration, which I view as a positive thing. We worked on many group projects and newsprints that taught us to work together, cooperate with one another, and treat our fellow classmates with respect. The friendships and bonds formed between students at 289 have mostly gone beyond middle school, and were very important to me.
I loved most of my teachers at 289. There were a few teachers that chose favorites and that showed in their grading of students. But for the most part, teachers were very knowledgable and worked hard to create engaging lessons. All of the teachers were interested in the topic they taught and cared about their students. The grading process was made simple and easy to understand by handing out rubrics and checklists.
