I feel honored to have had the opportunity to pursue a high school education at Bard High School. Bard is a very open-minded and accepting school. It is home to hundreds of diverse students in all departments: from race, to sexuality, and beyond. As a mixed kid myself, I have never felt excluded at Bard thanks to the amazing faculty and student population! There are school events put on occasionally for people to come together and discuss issues, and if I were to change anything about the school, it would be to increase the number of these events because they are truly eye-opening. The support everyone provides one another at this school is phenomenal and students are undoubtedly prepared for the future.

Great, caring school environment. As far as public NYC high schools go, BHSEC Queens is as good as it gets. Teachers and counselors are warm, knowledgeable, and helpful. The arts program is fantastic. The student body is, for the most part, diligent and empathetic. I have never seen or heard of any instances of bullying or fights. You earn an Associates degree while still in high school!
Bard High School is an excellent school, easily one of the best in New York City. All classes are taught by legitimate professors, many of them holding impressive graduate degrees from universities across the globe. The classes themselves are engaging, in part because they are organized as socratic seminars (with the exception of math and science courses) where students discuss texts and controversial subjects, sharing their opinions freely. The last two years at Bard are spent in the college program, where students take over 60 credits worth of classes and are eligible to graduate with an associates degree from Bard College, an accredited university.
