    "Stuy is a place where ambitious, spirited kids of different personalities, interests, socioeconomic statuses, and ethnic backgrounds commute from all over the city to work, learn, and grow as people. As cheesy as this sounds, no matter who you are, you will, for the most part, find an accepting environment that values your individuality. The curriculums of the plethora of courses offered at the school have been well designed to challenge even the brightest students, and even the standard-level required courses are taught at levels far above those of most schools. On the other hand, I agree with the previous review of Stuyvesant calling it a "brutal factory school". Our averages are almost solely based off of difficult tests that are often multiple choice. Even on the tests that are not multiple choice, no free points are given. If you don't know or understand the material very well, you WILL fail. Despite being a specialized high school, the school does focus on city standards and has strict rules and requirements based on this. You will risk some of your well-being if you go to Stuy, but almost everyone says it is worth it."

    "My school MCJHS is the best school. It is very small but but staffs are very dedicated. Most teachers are very much involved in state test preparation. Some of the teachers are extremely good, they encourage student to do excellent in their study."

    "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."

    "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."
