The most unimaginative leader I have ever seen at a school. In dealing with my youngest, she basically has created a school where intelligence is only one subject - science. Other areas the school touts is really underdeveloped. In Parent meetings she has nothing inspirational to say and she basically allows the aggressive and rude Assistant Principal, who hates students unless they are genius, to run the school. Get rid of her and the admin who work for her!!

As a parent, I expected Donahue as the principal of an elite school to care and make sure students are safe. She hasn't even done the bare minimum as a principal; scandals have broken out with students' lives or future at risk. If she has interacted with students instead of staying in her office all the time, she would have been able to prevent most of the things that has happened. I don't think she is worthy of being the principal and because of that, The prestige of Bronx Science is going down

she is now the principal and seems to believe that she can rule as a queen without respect for the students. she has such obvious favorites and takes everything too seriously. all funding money is spent on the offices and never on the school and she has a complete disregard for the students. it's either her way or the highway and nothing else. she doesn't care about the opinions of the students and makes no attempts to connect or meet with them

A horrible principal that is an epitome of the school's corruption. She does nothing to help the school and has the opposite of best interest for the students. She spends school funds on her nice office furniture when the student bathrooms have not been upgraded in more than 60 years. All she does is help with the alumni association to try and get more money for the school and try and build up the school's reputation. A horrible figurehead that does not do much

She is a very dedicated, easygoing teacher. Gives very high grades (I walked out of her Intel class with a 98 for the term), and is very good at rillong with the punches. Good sense of humor too

She is a really dedicated teacher with very informative lessons. However, her lessons are a bit boring and she doesn't seem to notice/care that some people are not paying attention. She is absent a lot and she is only present for a few labs. Sometimes, she can't control some students.

She is a great teacher. As long as you read the textbook, you'll understand what she is talking about. You have to study really hard if you want to get a good test grade. I respect her as a teacher.

A nice lady who tries to help, but her lessons are boring and she's not a good teacher. You have to learn from the textbook if you want to pass her class.

Bio. Tough tests, esp. since some questions have things she never reviewed. Fair amount of HW & tests. Bad reviewer for tests. Unoriginal lessons lack depth. Makes class think for selves to answer qs.
