    "The school is really small, only about 100 kids per grade. the social aspect isn't that good, and it was definitely not what i thought high school would be like. its ranked very good academically but there aren't that many ap courses offered- only 8, and there's pretty much only one teacher for each course so if you have a problem with a teacher you can't just switch classes. barely any art classes offered, and you aren't allowed to have real free periods. the guidance counselors are rude and the principal is not always looking out for the best interest of the students (more like the reputation of the school). i did make some really amazing friends. all the students are very smart and dedicated, and the school is extremely close knit."

    "A. Studies ranked 19th in the country! (#1 in the boroughs) This school lives up to its name. This school is "elite without being elitists." This is one of NYC's specialized high schools. The kids in this school are laid back, but driven. Laid back as in, kids know how to have fun. They don't cry over 89s, but yet they still know when it's time to crack down. Students have set goals in high places. I just wish A. Studies wasn't so underrated. It's ranked higher than Bronx Science, so why isn't this school raved about? It has a smaller student body which allows each child the attention deserved. Everyone knows each other. Bronx Science is a "name-brand" school. Meaning, you mention Bronx Science, Stuy, or BK Tech and people do backflips. HSAS is working its way there. :P"

    "WE are very happy with this school as our son enters his 3rd year. The curriculum is broad, with many AP subjects offered. I like that everyone knows my son, and that he feels safe and comfortable there. He is getting a terrific foundaation for college, and the link to Lehman is great!!! However, the work load is heavy, adn a lot is expected of the students. If your childdoes not like to do schoolwork or homework, this is not the place for him. All staff members, from the principal to the teachers to the aides, and security and athletic personnell have been wonderful to us and our child. we could not be happier with this school."

    "The High School of American Studies is a wonderful school if you want small classes, close attention from teachers, a beautiful and incredibly clean and safe school building and access to college courses (allowed during 11th grade and up for HSAS students). The Lehman College library, incredible athletic facilities and bucolic Neo-Gothic campus in the middle of the Bronx are all used by HSAS. All your student needs to get in is to score high enough in the SHSAT and to specify The High School of American Studies at Lehman College first on their list of preferred schools. The course offerings and the extracurricular offerings are limited, but does your student really need AP Greek, a Transgendered Students Organization, and an Asian Students Union to make it through high school? HSAS emphasizes the study of history, and mandates 2 yrs World Hist and 3 yrs American History."
