I honestly owe everything to Bard. I'm a current senior here, and I'm graduating in ~ three weeks. This place is truly somewhere to flourish academically and socially. The friendships and teacher relationships that I've made were all meaningful, as the Bard community has a special essence and the professors are all absolutely amazing! The professors care tremendously about their own work and their student's work. The small school atmosphere has especially added to my experience!

I love Bard because of the diversity and the college program that it offers! THE college program really helps low-income families support their children to get a college education. However, I think that Bard could work on their school safety. By that, I mean that when a problem is presented they should take action instead of just pointing out that we have a problem and that when the solution is in place it should be known to the students and parents.
Bard Queens stretched me academically to explore topics I had never learned about before in an engaging, thought-provoking environment that encouraged student discussion and seminar style teaching. The humanities program at BHSECQ is extremely good with amazing professors who are passionate about their classes. Science classes are also very strong at BHSECQ. They teach material that goes beyond what is taught in typical AP and IB classes at other NYC high schools. In addition, the Associates Degree received from Bard College is incredibly useful and can be transferred at your next institution. Despite the rigorous academic environment at Bard, the community is very close knit, encouraging strong relationships between professors and students as well as student to student. BHSECQ is overall a very inclusive, nurturing institution that will teach you life skills and give you many connections.
