Bronx Center for Science & Mathematics Reviews

Personally, applying to BCSM was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Teachers are very supportive and understanding, academically and personally. They are like a best friend. Mr. Tom, the principal is always attentive to school events. Mr. Tom always says, "My students come first". Thanks to him and school staff, I was able to go to Denmark without having to pay out of my pocket money. It was free! A thorn in this school would be that the school itself requires a lot of hard work and commitment. Every year gets challenging and one flaw that BCSM students have is procrastination. But, again there are teachers that are there to support you and they'll notice when your slacking and they'll come to you and make sure you get back on track. There are many exciting school events planned by student government such as bingos, dances, carnivals and more. This place may seem small but it has a big heart with a lot of positive people which makes it a perfect community to be part of.

The school is rather small but we all get along like family. Although there are friend groups here and there, we know when to come together and fight for a cause. For example, the student body organized a small march to bring awareness to gun violence. We also had a dress down where all the money that was raised was sent to different organizations to help those who suffered from the hurricane in Puerto Rico. The staff and teachers are amazing. They genuinely form amazing relationship with each and every student in the school.
I am currently a senior at BCSM and I'd have to say my time so far in the school was pretty good. You have a lot of support and resources that many schools in the Bronx don't have access to, especially preparation for college applications and the SAT. There are also a lot of activities and really good clubs. My advice for incoming students is to work hard because if you don't care about your education, nobody is going to care because there are many other students who want to succeed so opportunities are going to be sent their way.
