    "Stuy has many brilliant brilliant kids. It is not competitive because the kids are mean - they aren't. It is competitive because the top colleges will only make a few offers and so everyone works hard to get to the top. This has led to a wide-spread culture of cheating. Also, it is too bad that many of the teachers aren't as smart as the kids. Some are great, but many are terrible teachers. The admin knows but can't get rid of them. My son had some horrible teachers for important science courses. Also, the school is so large, it is very hard to get issues addressed by the admin. If your kid never needs extra help, then it is all good. But if you need to work with the admin on anything - forget about it."

    "GREAT school that my son loves. He didn't take test prep because we couldn't afford it but he scored high on the SHSAT by reviewing books to learn everything about the test. His reviewing was motivated by his dream to go to Stuy to play football and take computer classes. His first 3 months at Stuy were a true adjustment because he was unused to the amount of homework & reading. Homework freshman year was 3 hrs/day and now sophomore its 4 hrs/day because of an AP class. He does have some time to enjoy school activities & have fun with friends some school nights and weekends. Parental involvement is encouraged. The Principal, Parent Coord. & Parent's Assn communicate weekly with all parents. I receive emails weekly about activities going on at Stuy. During our search we found many wonderful public high schools. We visited many & narrowed our choices to 20. Because we loved Stuy, we put it at the top of our list & my son worked hard during 7th and 8th grade to do well in order to have a good foundation and get a high score on the SHSAT. My son has been very happy from the start. Feel free to reach out in the comments and ask questions about Stuy, it s really a great school!"

    "What I think others should know: There is a reason for this prestige. Kids aren't necessarily "geniuses" but they are hardworking. There's around 1 or 2 hours of homework everyday, but with computer science, it's more (coding takes time). On top of that is studying. What do I like: You can learn anything here. Everything is offered. Everyone in Stuy is really nice and has good morals. You learn what hard work is and determination is. It pushes you to your ultimate self. Improvement: Some downsides are that to achieve a 90 at Stuy requires you to study until 12am (for the most part). It's not an easy school. Everyone remains depressed and sleep deprived due to pressure to study. Some homeworks do not help since only tests are counted towards your grades. It would make you feel stressed out, 85% of the time. AP's aren't weighted either. Overall: Stuy has changed me as a person. Even if it doesn't get you into Harvard (due to low grades administered), it gives you knowledge and ability to carry on through hardship. It's 4 years of pain, dull mental and physical soreness. But it's a pain that also can leave a beautiful scar."
