The Baccalaureate School for Global Education is an incredible school for high achieving middle school and high school students in New York City. The small student body creates a tight-knit community where students can always feel at ease. Students can easily form close relationships with their teachers and peers. Although the Pre-IB and IB courses at the school are very rigorous, help from teachers allow for a smooth academic transition. At BSGE, students quickly become well-rounded and mature individuals both inside and outside the classroom.

BSGE is the only public school in the NYC area that offers the prestigious IB diploma program. However, this is a very demanding program whose requirements BSGE struggles to meet on a public school budget. Teachers are well-meaning but incredibly overworked. This, combined with the stress the students are under in following the IB curriculum, often leads to a stressed environment that may be detrimental to a student's mental health. However, the community is strong given its small size.
The Baccalaureate School for Global Education takes in well-rounded individuals and turns them into so much more than that. Through discussion-based classes and an incredibly welcoming environment, students are taught how to think and analyze the world around them rather than focusing on test-taking. Though it lacks in clubs, activities, and sports, it makes up for it in spirit and student involvement. There is an incredible focus on helping the world around us and the teachers spend so much time with the students they become family just as the students do.
