The best specialized high school! Bronx Science offers more than 20+ AP courses. The teachers and faculty are so supportive and compassionate. There are more than a hundred clubs, everything from baking to anime. We also have our own Holocaust Museum, our own observatory with a state of the art telescope. We produce the MOST Nobel Prize Winners out of any other high school in the USA. Our new Stanley Manne Institute has state of the art science laboratories, an animal research room, and much more! We have a HUGE, BEAUTIFUL campus fully complete with out door seating as well.
The Bronx Science community is really nice and helpful. The teachers and even the students are very kind and welcoming. It is a very challenging environment but the workload is worth it. I can tell from my first experience at Bronx Science how passionate the teachers are at what they do. If you need help with a certain subject, they are always there to assist. The students are very phenomenal too. Almost everyone can find their place at Bronx Science and bullying is very uncommon. Even though the workload is heavy, it is manageable because of the great support from peers and teachers. It is a very nice environment and the people surrounding you always encourages you to become the best version of yourself, if only you are willing to that is. Don't be shy, don't be afraid to ask for help! If you really want a productive and fun experience at Bronx Science, you will make it happen!
I like Bronx Science because it is competitive everyone here is worried about themselves but having said that if you also are competitive then these people will get you, they will get your strive and your determination. Bronx Science is poor in its diversity however there are active organizations working towards diversifying the school and its curriculum. Mental health wise the school has been working towards providing more resources to students, but mind you the commute time here plus the work plus ec's will give you a challenge no matter what but the nice thing is that everyone else is also in the same boat as you. Watch out for some teachers but most are nice and get involved there is so much to do here! So many clubs and teams!
