Over the past 4 Year it is a relatively different high school compared to others in NYC. It has a ton of computers and a lot of the assignments and interactivity happens over the internet throughout the experience. The students are decent at best with some shining amongst the rest. Security seems a unfair in sone of their practices, but it's normal I'm since most high school students can't really be trusted. Overall it's fine, but parents can make better choices.

This school is ideal for those who are serious in pursuing a Computer Science degree. Those who apply merely to try something new will defiantly feel overwhelmed. However, AFSE at it's core will always be an institution driven to bring out an individual's potential. Whether it is attending College or starting your own business, hard work is always emphasized. Staff support is widely available after school and each student is grouped with an advisory. For the next 4 years students are aware of each objective they should focus on based off their current level.(ex: all juniors were sent to mandatory tutoring for the SAT). Some Cons of AFSE include sharing a building with 5 other schools, unbalanced gender demographic(A LOT OF GUYS), small lunchrooms, metal detectors and phone policy. Very strict phone policy. All in all AFSE taught me a lot about myself and I wouldn't have traded any of my experiences in the world.
I liked some teachers, the education is okay. One thing that is annoying is that there was a big change in the grading system, and that really messed up everyone's GPA.
But one thing I love is OneGoal where selected students are given the opportunity to learn about college and things that related to college; scholarships, FAFSA, making our college list, etc.
