Brooklyn International High School at Waters Edge Reviews

I graduated in 2013 and went to SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. I never regret going to BIHS. Teachers and staffs here were so nice and provided resources as many as possible that you need, and they also have connections with different school, programs, and organizations. They also helped you to APPLY FOR COLLEGE and FINANCIAL AID which will NEVER HAPPENS IN OTHER SCHOOLS.

It was extremely helpful for an immigrant who doesn't have a family, connections, experiences in U.S. Class size is small so you can have enough attention from teachers and really focus on your learning. School activities were very fun as well. Overall, you get all the resources you need.

If you study hard, have good GPA, and attended activities, it will not be a problem to go to Top 60 universities.

Bihs has not only been a school but a gift for me. It taught me so much and made me learn who I am as a person. Coming to a new country isn't easy but this school has made it a little bit easier. They take you with open arms. I never felt scared to speak my broken English my first year because their were other students like me who wanted to learn and improve their English. The staff and teachers are amazing. They treat you like their own child. If you have problems or need advice, they are there for you! They prepared me for college and are very involve to make sure you won't be alone in that process. They look colleges with you and scholarships that are available so that you will be ready once you graduate.
Thank you BIHS family!
Brooklyn International High School is an institution where students are from over 32 different parts of the world. Of course academics is important in a institution however, without collaborations and communication the growth of a student unstable. At my school we focus on collaboration and communicating with each other and our community. In the future every jobs or career will have these two technique and our school does a great job and with great effort install them inside us so that we will be a step advanced towards our career.
