Very Great School. Able to take college classes as early as my Junior year of high school. People are mostly friendly, however, it is not a diversified school and not every culture is recognized. Most of the teachers there are helpful when it comes to academics.
City Polytechnic High School was a unique high school in which it was able to combine college studies with your regular high school studies. They were able to do this due to being part of the Early College Initiative. It was this unique program that I enjoyed while there. It allowed me to only spend three years as a high school student, while taking college courses at New York City College of Technology. Before becoming a full-time college student they provided classes relating to engineering and architecture. At a high school level it was very interesting to take part in and is another reason why I enjoyed the school. The faculty were kind people who provided support to the students. However, as previously stated, the unique early college program that they provided for me, that allowed me to be college ready was definitely what I enjoyed the most.
