Bronx High School of Science Reviews

Bronx Science is a land of opportunity. It is a special place, where teachers will accomodate for the most interested, most proactive student. Here, grade level is less important than interest and proficiency. Some in grade 9 take AP Calculus BC, some in grade 10, most in grade 11. In most other high schools, students might be lucky to take this senior year! Also, Computer Science students here are encouraged to take the equivalent of CS II in sophomore year. Math and computer science research program taught by Dr. Shapovalov is unparalleled by any other school. Its students begin with calculus and move on to extensive research in applied and pure mathematics by senior year.

Bronx Science has given me opportunities I never would have had if I went to another school. That being said, it is very easy to get crushed in the ridiculous amount of pressure the school puts you through. I would say that it was easy for me to get help from the guidance department though, and that the school does offer many services to students who are struggling.

Teachers generally teach for the tests, but once you get to higher level classes you can truly explore your passions and it becomes more about learning for the sake of learning (note: take Post-AP Chem if you can! It's a 10/10) It's honestly hard to fail a class because there are so many ways for you to improve. The teachers hold Small Group Instruction at least once a week (you don't even have to go to your teacher for help, if that's an issue. Ask other teachers as well) and NHS members tutor in the library. The only way I could imagine a student doing badly is if they chose not to be proactive about their learning.
Bronx Science provided students a lot of resources in order to explore their interests through challenging courses as well as various electives. The S.O. is awesome! Every month, they plan events to increase school spirit. There’s teams for Speech and Debate, Model UN, Robotics, and more! If you don’t like the clubs, you can make your own! For the most part, I have enjoyed my time here at Bronx Science. Disclaimer, however, be prepared to take on some load of coursework.
