New York City Geographic District No. 19 Reviews

Attending a college prepartory school in district 19 in Brooklyn, New York has drastically change my perspective of dirstict 19. In this neighborhood implementing college prepartory high schools is a controversial topic because alothough these school prepare students to go to and through college but many student prefer to go to public schools due to less rules and more freedom. Eventhough, in this district there is not a lot of diversity and is predominently African American and Latino population there is a sense of close community values. Ultimently, this distrivct is average becasue it has some flaws but is sometimes over looked of the great things due to previous reputation.

I have been schooling in district 19 for 9 years in various schools.All of which I had a nice experience in.Not only are the schools dedicated to enrich the foundation of learning upon the students but the students also work their butt off to enhance their own enrichment program through programs, activities, sportsmanship and the such. I personally like the way they disguise learning to be fun and gives the students what they need to fulfill their accomplishments. I would like for them to work better with the students as companions.
I actually had a good experience in District No. 19 school because it was a school of diversity. I love my school because the teachers gave me chance to express myself during the class and after the class. So also does the student make me feel safe in the community. The only thing I wish to change is the fact that the student are a little lousy. I wish to change this because it distract students like me who are willingly ready to learn.
