Being a senior at CSI High School, I’ve had many experiences. This school is quite a diverse community. There are many opportunities to learn about other cultures. Some include Spanish culture clubs and Chinese classes. After all, our community is all about international studies! Our school also has challenging courses like AP Comparative Government and AP Computer Science. In these courses, we are challenged with very difficult tasks. In AP Comparative Government, we have to learn the vast histories of 6 countries and their modern states. We have to memorize a lot of vocabulary and use deep analysis on articles and country comparisons. In AP Computer Science, we begin to learn about Java, Python, and C++ ?
(programs of code). We use algorithms and abstractions to create programs that stimulate real life situations. My experiences in both of these classes has strengthend my academic character. Today, I am a much more commited student who is determined to reach success.

C.S.I.H.S has been an incredible school these past four years. Overall the teachers are great and are willing to help in the morning, during lunch, and sometimes after class. The facilities are modern as the school is still a fairly young one. However, I would say that the resources have been the greatest part of C.S.I. There have been many scholarships and various programs fostered by this school that have allowed to me learn so much outside of the class room and even given me the chance to go abroad, as well as participate in a student exchange program! It is fair to say that CSI is among the best high schools in Staten Island.
The CSI High School was an incredibly unique school. College readiness and becoming globally conscious citizens being the school’s primary focus, students learn how become critical thinkers, preparing to be integrated in the ever-growing interconnected world. International studies are found in all aspects of a students studies, helping expand as global thinkers and see outside a local/national level, while also emphasizing the importance of local/national issues. Students were granted the opportunity to emerge ourselves in different cultures. I had the chance to go on an international trip, visiting 5 countries in 10 days. The school is rather small, forming a family bond to form among the students and the staff. Smaller classrooms allow for more student-teacher attention to help students thrive academically. I had the privilege to be a part of the school’s music program which allowed me to express myself creatively. I thank CSI High School tremendously for all the vital skills.
