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.

As a high school student getting ready for college, I would like to see teacher's be a little bit more strict and persistent. Due dates shouldn't be pushed back, consequences need to be followed through, and students need more positive reinforcement!
I was so excited to attend Cony because many of my family members had graduated from there. Unfortunately, when I attended I found a lot of racism and an administration that didn't care enough to change anything. Instead of taking pride in the diversity that the immigrant families gives this community, Cony allowed students to get away with making racist remarks.
In addition to this, the arts are not given enough of a chance. I understand that this is due to funding, but it's hard to be a student and care about what you're doing if the school department and everything supposedly supporting it is trying to tear down the only department in the school that allows students to express themselves in a safe and creative way.
