I'm a new student at Cony this year, and I have to say a LOT
First the administration. The administration does little to listen to students' complaints!
Second, the students themselves. I can't go a full day without hearing two N-bombs!
Third, the teachers. The teachers are actually pretty cool. One teacher I mentioned earlier has been reported to have been staring at girls butts during class. One time during homeroom he was standing behind a student while speaking to her and not even trying to hide what he was looking at!
Fourth, the social ranks. In the middle school, there are several ways to survive. The main ways I quickly discovered is to either
A) Be up-to-date on trends, wear popular clothes etc.
B )Be edgy
A would make sense, but B seems weirder. Being edgy shows others you don't care and shouldn't be messed with. However, no matter how you choose to act socially, you'll get into drama.

I like the diversity and the fact that most of the teachers are passionate about what they teach. There’s lots of opportunity. The administration isn’t that great though. They rarely listen to what the students have to say, even though they pride themselves on being a community centered around open mindedness and growth. However, this is my fifth year attending (middle school included) and I have to say other than administrators being kinda dumb sometimes, my overall experience has been pretty good!
While there are teachers and staff that care very deeply for Cony, the administration is flawed. Often students find themselves in trouble for standing up for themselves. Other students who may try to make progress by educating students and staff on different identities and struggles are mostly pushed to the side. Not to mention the lack of modern textbooks and educational sources, along with a striking absences of AP/IB class choices and extracurricular activities means students find themselves lacking a lot of experience that other people their age have, and realize that, despite what may be pitched by certain school officials, Cony is not the "land of opportunity".
