I absolutely love my school! The workload is demanding and engaging, and the extracurriculars are beyond compare. It's a challenge but the community and teachers help me at every turn! Everyone here has something about which they're passionate about, and you have so many opportunities to find your own passion. We are the only high school in NYC with our own campus, and it's really an added bonus. We have a very open and accepting community, and there are so many resources available to me. I've learned so much about time management and acquired skills that I will use in college and beyond.
Review Bronx High School of Science
Bronx Science is an amazing school! I love that there are so many courses offered here for students of all paths. The arts are a bit lacking as most courses here are geared towards the sciences. Most teachers are experts in their field- they earned their position in Bronx Science and know a lot about their subjects which make for a rich, info-packed class. The commute here is long, but it really depends on where you live. That being said, it can be a bit of an issue when you're involved in a lot of clubs and/or sports. Lastly, I think the school spirit is great. Most people are nice and it's very easy to make friends. I've never had an issue with bullying or racism, as this school is very diverse and relatively safe. Depending on the classes one takes, the homework given may be a bit staggering but it's important to know that time management is key. All in all, I feel that Bronx Science truly prepares you for college.
The Bronx High School of Science is definitely an exceptional school that makes you feel like you fit in, no matter what your interests are. Teachers vary in personality but most are very supportive and approachable. From the lunch ladies to the deans, everyone is very friendly. Bronx Science offers a wide array of over 100+ clubs and if you don't see a club you like, you can make one! Classroom environment is very engaging with a emphasis on group work. Highly recommend any prospective students to come to Bronx Science.
