Those are typical concerns from parents who use 82nd Street Academics. We want kids to develop their academics with enough fun to have a great afternoon
The sad truth is that New York City generally has excellent teachers and principals but twice as many students as they can handle. With student:teacher ratios ranging from 25:1 – 40:1, public schools labor to do too much with too little. Meanwhile, homework continues to increase as teachers labor to prepare students for NYS exams. Parents end up with a dilemma.
OUR GOAL – to prepare your student for entrance into one of the 10 best middle schools closest to your home.
We Promise an A in Homework – 82nd Street Academics has the best track record with homework completion and correction for the past 15 years. After a short time to gather and meet friends, we tackle homework together – 10:1 students to teacher, we have the extra time to answer questions and check homework. Our homework promise is for students who attend for 5 days a week and leave at 6PM or later.

Homework Help – Students’ first activity for the day is to complete their homework. It is checked by trained group leaders for neatness and correct answers. Our goal is to ensure that students understand the material that they are completing and develop study habits that they will use throughout their academic career.
Motivated Academics (Drama, Dance and Music) – Enrichment activities help students engage their creative thinking skills and interact with their classmates in new ways.
Teacher Led Activities – Teachers plan activities that incorporate the Common Core Learning Standards to build their skills in self-expression and knowledge of arts and crafts, science, community building, and health/safety.
Literacy Activities – On a daily basis, each student participates in an age-appropriate literacy activity. Some classes include group reading of a chapter book or a class book followed by discussion and reflection.
Outdoor Recreation – Students always look forward to time on our private playground!
