School No. 28 Reviews

3 reviews
I am currently a 7th grader at School 28 and have been a student since 4th grade. Me being at the same school with most of the same classmates for that long makes me so sad that I have to leave it after 8th grade. I've made some great memories there and have friends that I consider family. Our whole class is basically one big family. School 28 is a school for "gifted" kids so our school obviously has pretty good academics and you need to have good grades every year, but it's pretty easy if you do your work and pay attention. However, you will probably be behind in history once you go to high school because our social studies teacher is really bad at her job and barely teaches us basic history. We also have a Science Olympiad team, National Junior Honors Society, and a National History Day competition as well. However, my experience might not be like yours but I definitely recommend you to go to School 28.

I have had a very good experience there, not only are there no fights, but every issue, they'll have a week long conference just to address the issue for the safety of your child. They also make sure that no one has under a 75 in any of the essential subjects. It is for the best of the best and they give you the best of the best. The teachers are even trained to go to teach at that school(they have to take another college course if they want to teach there). Even though they have some childish tendencies, e.g. gossip, abuse of power, etc. Overall, you'll meet a lot of new people and have a good experience. I recommend this school.
I attended the PAGT program, and I can truly say it was amazing. The quality of education doesn't compare to the rest of Paterson public schools. Fights are extremely rare, dedicated teachers. Not easy to get into, but if you do, this school is where you go to succeed.
