Rustin High School is a unique environment. While it is similar to any other school, I found the academics challenged me. Rustin offers many great opportunities both in and out of school such as internships, extracurricular activities, vast elective options, one-on-one help to prepare for college, and much more. I enjoyed being surrounded by so many others who are willing to work as hard as I am, and I strongly believe the education is held to a high standard. While many students don't enjoy school, Rustin has made my experience more than bearable, and I encourage incoming students to take a chance with new opportunities and challenge themselves when picking classes.

Bayard Rustin gave me an unforgettable high school experience that I will never forget! I admire the rigor and determination that every single faculty member possesses in order to make sure their students, including me, succeed.
Rustin is a big school with lots to do. Teachers and staff care about students. Most teachers that I have come across are passionate about their job and are willing to stay after school to help students. There are a lot of activities at this school and the activities are accessible to any type of student as the students in these organizations are friendly. The school is not very diverse. The majority of the people attending this school are White, middle or upper class. The people that I know there are tolerable and there are many minority clubs to join to gain more opportunity’s to meet people. Overall my experience at Rustin was eye opening because I got the chance to meet people coming from all walks of life.
