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.
The Bronx High School of Science was exactly where I needed to be. It did not matter that I lived in Rockaway Beach because going to school there was absolutely fantastic. Sometimes, I learned more from the students than the teachers because thats how smart the students were! The AP courses were challenging, and I would love to send my children there when I have some!
As with everyone, high school is what you make of it, and oftentimes kids that took advantage of the funds, research program, robotics/sports/debate/STEM teams available, and the many positions in clubs / student government while having fun and being passionate about something (even in the casual sense) were rewarded with stellar colleges. What I can't defend is the utter lack of diversity, which while better than most of NYC, reflect primarily only asian and caucasian demographics. For academics, I've experienced many classes with unconventional styles of teaching and many students relied on their own resourcefulness to study for APs and tests, which run on an EXCELLENT system (each day of the week is reserved for tests of specific subjects). Most adults are overwhelmingly supportive, empowering many of my peers to start creative and impactful projects in the world. BxSci being an hour away from other boroughs is often the first sacrifice most admit is worth it to attend BxSci.
