The Downside

Little information available

The Richard H. Hungerford School is a safe and orderly school where the leadership is liked and students agree that bullying does not happen frequently, surveys report.

The school, which serves over 400 7th-12th graders, is located in eight sites across Staten Island. The attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 88.8 percent, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan(CEP) and we read in the 2015 Quality Review that the quality of teaching at this school is good.

In addition, the CEP details that students can participate in work site programs. Also, according to the Quality Review, class trips to community restaurants and the local mall are worked into the curriculum to enhance learning.
