    "Townsend Harris was always a very challenging school for no reason. The rules and punishments are unfair. The biggest problem I encountered was the dress code. Nonetheless, I did receive a good education."

    "When you think of high school you think of this time where you will change into the person that you were always meant to be with courage, strength, and love. Townsend Harris surrounds you with open arms to accept you. Townsend Harris will not become you're second home, but your home while you are there and after you graduate. They always give back to their community with Honor the Homeless, and raising funds. Honor the Homeless involves the students and a few advisers volunteering their time, patience, and resources to give others what they are so fortunate to have from basic necessities to someone showing them compassion. Townsend Harris is the best school to go to, despite its rigorous academic work that will 1000% prepare you for college and the real world. Choose Townsend Harris because you want to leave your city rather greater than you found it. with better educated adults who are com-pendent, confident, and loyal to their people."

    "It is an experience like no other. One that prepares one for life and for college. You meet people of many different backgrounds and lives. You meet teachers that will be the beginning and the end of your life. You meet friends that will be with you a lifetime. You will cry and laugh, suffer and triumph."

    "Townsend Harris was a wonderful high school filled with students eager to challenge themselves and learn as much as they can and teachers willing to spend their time and effort before and after school to help their students succeed. It placed a lot of emphasis on doing well in academics but just as much emphasis on exploring talents, joining sports, and being a part of extracurriculars."
