    Posted 2009-06-17
    "I've been a teacher at BHS for five years. The recent negative comment that claims that the school has no activities is false. Many of our students participate in sports as members of Truman High School's teams (we are housed inside the Truman campus). BHS also has a few clubs of its own (step, chess) and actively encourages students to form more to suit their own interests. As far as teacher encouragement, I know that many teachers (me for one) give up lunch periods and after-school time constantly to tutor students both within our own subjects and in anything else where we can be helpful. Although I am a history teacher, I have tutored students in living environment and math when I've been able to help. BHS is a rigorous college-prep school that requires students to wear uniforms. If that isn't your thing, then you would probably be happier going somewhere else. I. Stewart"

    "School is absolutely horrible ; i guarantee any parent can find better.no sports activity's, no legit clubs , uniformed school , teachers and social worker aren't there for us , i am a former student of this school , and i tried to work hard and do my best, but the way you get pressured in this school, it's outstanding. Also you can get tagged for anything. they'll send u home and neglect you of your work over overall appearance issues. DON'T SEND YOUR KIDD HERE, this school need to be shut down"

    "This is fatima and stephanie!!!! First graduated students from BHS! Rhat is an amazing school! I must agree , yes is a very challeging school but not hard and yes the staff stress you out but definetly only for the better! When applying for the school it specifly says its a college prepartory school! They are meant to prepare the students for college and the school does a great doing it.Helping the students find colleges was even the best part about it , because honestly I didnt think I would be here! Stephanie and I are in college now and it couldnt be easier ... All because of my school! BHS! Again thank you for everything! And for those students that are not prepare to do work and performed as a student dont waist your time and attend to the school because you are not ready to acheive!!!!!!!!!"

    "Bronx Health Sciences high school, is in word challenging. when you send your child to this school they better be ready to do a ton of work but it pays off in the end and we always have help. yes the school is very small but its better that way beacuse kids get along better. and fore the teachers the are great and they all care about us and will do whatever they have to do to help us out. B.H.S ios a great school but its hard... but then again college isnt so easy.. so they are only preparing us for the real world... if you dont like it then dont come to this school, we have plenty of others that want to come."

    "as a student who goes to this high school i would say that theres nothing wrong with it. kids here learn what they need to learn and do what they have to do to move u in life.all i say is that forcing these kids to wear uniform is bad.since i go to this school i know how kids feel and they dont like the uniform."
