Quality Review


What is the Quality Review?

The Quality Review is a process that looks at how well schools are organized to support student learning and teacher practice. The New York City Department of Education (DOE) developed the Quality Review to help schools in raising student achievement.

Experienced educators conduct a two-day school visit. They observe classrooms, speak with parents, students, teachers, and school leaders. They use the Quality Review Rubric to help them examine the information they gather during the school visit.

After the school visit, a Quality Review Report is published on the school’s DOE webpage. The Quality Review Report rates the school on 10 indicators of the Quality Review Rubric. The report also describes areas of strength and areas of focus and has written feedback on six of the indicators. Information from this report is also used in the School Quality Snapshot.

Why is it important?

The Quality Review process provides all members of the school community with information about how well the school supports students and their achievement. It is also a source of feedback for school staff to improve the school's support for students.
