Academy for Software Engineering Reviews
AFSE has been an incredible experience and has changed who I am as a person. The school focuses less on extrinsic motivators such as grades and is very content based through the uses of a mastery based grading system, that assess the students on skills.The school has an incredible diversity, being a majority low-income family school. I feel the community at AFSE is incredible, and its clubs are reason for this. As VP the Model Congress, I've seen first hand the incredible commitment that students have. Enthusiasm has run our club to compete at the best colleges on the east coast. A small public school from Manhattan facing off the best private schools, and we walk home with awards. If you want to make a new club, Student Gov makes it easy. The support in the school is incredible, from free Kaplan SAT classes, to the IMentor program that provides you with a mentor for 4 years to help with internships, colleges, careers, etc.
I attended this school starting in the fall of 2015. I've had some of the best teachers in my academic years to date at this school. The school has a very close community, and gives the students a plentiful amount of resources and technology to use. Their computer science program and instructors were very effective and knew what they were doing. I do wish that the school held on to their staff more, since a lot of them have left. However overall, it is a good high school to attend for those interested in computer science and technology.
Overall it's possibly one of the best schools in NYC. From the teachers, to the diversity, to how college ready they get you, it's a great school overall. And lots of school may say this, but just type in AFSE and do a minute of research, you'll see were different. The only main con I would have to say is that it's in a building with like 5 other schools, with one of them being a Kipp elementary school. And another probably would be if your looking to go into the next level in sports, then this school probably shouldn't be your first choice. But other than that, the teachers in this school truly want you to succeed. And once you join this school it'll take literally like a month, for you to get used to it. And just days to say, "Hey...I kind of like this".
