Bronx Compass High School Reviews

3 reviews
When i think about my experience at Bronx Compass there are many things that come to mind. Even though this is my third year at this school I’ve experience a lot . Some of them are: good things , bad things, mistakes, lessons, happiness, joy, drama, and most importantly, fun. Bronx Compass to me seemed like time is passing by really fast. I learned many valuable life lessons as well as a lot of friends. I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and also how to tell your real friends from the others.Most of the good memories involved my good friends and most of the bad memories involved just me. Just good memories for me in general in Bronx Compass doing class projects, as well as just seeing people in class everyday. ! I would say that one of the biggest life lessons i have learned from this school is that you should always be yourself. People respect and enjoy the person that you really are inside, and if they don't, they are not really your friend.

The school has been through many changes throughout my 4 years of being in the school. The school is not a horrible school, but it's not great either. There are always changes that can be made to improve the school system, and hopefully changes are made before I graduate college.
The life here is calm and entertaining, no cases of bullying or anything like that, though there are occasional fights.
