    "Academy of American studies is a very small poor school. We share buildings with newcomers high school, but most likely in 2021 they are going to have a new building for academy students. Our recent principal spends most of the money that the school gets on opera trips to Lincoln center instead of the school sports teams or supplies. The teachers at academy are decent, there are really nice and great teachers like Mr. Deng, Ms. Greenspan, Ms. Black, Ms. Duran and many more but then there are the really mean with bad attitude teachers and staff. The gym classrooms are over packed and the size of the gym barely fits the amount of kids in the class because this year 2016-2017 our principal accepted more freshmen than the school can fit."

    "My experience in this school was good because I learned to improve in my studies and interpersonal skills. This school helps students focus on their college goals, such as what college they want to go to and how they can reach their goal to get their. I have prepared for college in a excelled way at this school from having classes that are one hour and 10min to college workshops in classroom. I have gained a variety amount of knowledge in my education and experience in this school. This school guides you to do better in the future, especially in college."

    "I like how, it being a small school, everyone knows each other and you get the chance to really get to know the teachers."

    "The Academy of American Studies is a vastly underrated school that deserves more credit. This is a great school for students to become prepared for college, from offering a wide range of AP courses, SAT prep classes, as well as college courses. The school demonstrates a sense of diversity from all different types of backgrounds, despite this, you will never feel a sense of being left out because everyone gets along well with one another. Another pro would be the clubs and activities, most students that attend this school are always involved in extracurricular activities because the school offers a vast majority. The teachers are also great educators because they are always willing to go out of their way to help students who need the extra help. Overall, this school presents an interactive and friendly environment for everyone that attends."

    "I've been in Academy of American Studies for 4 years and I'm expected to graduate June 2017. My experience in this school has been okay, I like the diversity in this school which made me meet new people. Also there are some teachers who are willing to support you all the way. However, my school accepts too many kids and at the end doesn't have too much space for all of us. In our gym period, we have 220 kids and can't have our own proper lockers. Then, our classes are too long, I understand to prepare us for college but it's very stressing for us."
