IS 383 Philippa Schuyler Middle School for the Gifted and Talented is a New York City Department of Education Public Middle School. The school is located in the Bushwick part of Brooklyn. Admission to this school is granted by competitive examination, unlike many public Middle Schools in New York City and the students are put under a lot of pressure to perform well. The school serves grades 5-8 but the rigorous application process can begin as early as fourth grade. Philippa Schuyler is noted for its academics and high scoring on standardized examinations. "Scuyler" as it called by its current students former students (a.k.a. Scuylerites) only accepts the best and the brightest. One of the reasons for the school's highly competitive grades on statewide andministered examinations could be because its administrators keep the students continuously working and challenge them to read more and enhance/build their language skills/vocabulary. The school has reading lists that is made accessible for its new and returning students to read from over the summer and discuss it later in the upcoming school year. The school's namesake is the child prodigy and pianist Philippa Schuyler. The school is ranked one of the best middle schools in the city. It is the #23 school on the top 50 middle schools in NYC list. The School is featured in the book "New York City's Best Public Middle Schools" by Marcia Biederman. The school was also one of the 209 Successful Public Schools exempted from the citywide uniform curriculum mandated in 2003. Many of the school's graduates qualify for admission to New York City's Specialized High Schools or are accepted to private prep schools such as Phillips Andover Academy. Achievement First Charter School has recently been added in addition to the school, provoking many angry parents, teachers, and students alike. Many parents believe that the extra school within the building could possibly affect the Schuyler students attending and could hurt their educations, therefore lowering the standards and educational standing of the school.
