It's great for high school students who know they wish to obtain a degree in interior design. Like all schools, there are great professors and not so great professors. For the most part, NYSID does have a good staff of professors for the industry. The school does not make it easy for existing professionals to obtain a degree because of the lack of available time slots of classes. It does not offer online possibilities nor does it seem to be future focused on how to teach their students. They have a great reputation and most students who even apply to the school and have good grades are perfectionists to begin with and have a dedication to learning, passion for the industry and overall goal to exceed expectations. Their job opportunities are lacking and the workload is intense. The facilities are not suitable for the degree and they need to renovate. They also recently put a lot of money into their master's facility in which undergraduates are not even allowed to enter or utilize.
