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 (NYCDOE) developed the Quality Review to help schools in raising student achievement.

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

The Quality Review process provides verbal and written feedback and ratings aligned to the School Quality Rubric based on what was observed and the evidence gathered throughout the review.

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. Quality Review resources are available to school communities to support school improvement
