    "Most of the classes are humanitarian to the point where it is overwhelming. The science and math department is so poor and terrible. Absolutely terrible."
    Topic: Overall Experience | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "I would never choose this school ever again. Their emphasis on things like dress code was unnecessary and borderline racist. They would allow the white girls to wear shorts and almost all asians and black girls would get called out. They took PE way too seriously and overall the high school experience was terrible. Teachers were often if not always, borderline bratty and acted as if the world revolved around them. Given that there were a few okay teachers, but they were rare as a gem. This school does not care for the student's mental and emotional well being as they were too focused on just the academics and politics of the school and the greater DOE of nyc."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "It was pretty diverse ethnically. The kids weren't extremely racist or anything of that sort. You could feel accepted. But a lot of the kids here were weird to the point that I felt like I was the normal one and felt left out for being the normal one."

    "tbh they need to hire more teachers that are good at teaching. there are many teachers that everyone would dread having and a handful who everyone wants. there should a balance of good at teaching and chill in a teacher. many times it would be one or the other. some aren't even any of that so yeah"

    "Some of the teachers are very serious about helping you succeed. They will meet with you after class and provide critical feedback. There are other teachers who are way too passionate about the subject that they forget that it is just a high school class and that their class is one of the other 8 we are required to take. It is difficult to be in a classroom and fulfill that class's expectations. All teachers are knowledgeable in their areas but their teaching methods are not effective and their grading system is very inconsistent."
