Internships, music and art
Far from nearest subway; discipline concerns
At Victory Collegiate, a small school opened in 2007 in the South Shore Educational Complex, all students have internships. They may help out at an elementary school, work at a law firm, or do community service in the building.
While many students begin 9th grade with poor academic skills, most graduate on time.
The South Shore Educational Complex, is in an isolated area, far from the nearest subway. All students must pass through metal detectors. Teachers and students have expressed concerns about discipline, order and bullying based on their responses to the NYC School Survey.
On the positive side, students may take part in sports teams with students from the other four schools in the building. Victory Collegiate students may perform in a brass ensemble or learn about filmmaking.
Victory has partnerships with organizations such as CAMBA, which offers social and academic support to help high school students graduate on time, and GEMS (girls educational and mentoring services), according to the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP). Imagine Academy from Microsoft invites parents to workshops, which may lead to their certification in Microsoft Suite.
Special education: Victory took in students from Arts & Media Preparatory Academy, which closed due to poor performance in 2017. This increased the numbers of students with special needs and those learning English, according to the CEP. Victory is adapting their integrated co-teaching model to better serve students with disabilities. In this model, two teachers work with a mix of students in one classroom—some general education students and some with disabilities.
Admissions: There has been room for every student who applied in recent years. (Lydie Raschka, web reports, December 2018)
