I go to the High school of the liberal arts, a charter school in New York City, the school has its problems as it has such a great focus on academics over mental health. I honestly can't remember the last time I was able to go to sleep before 12 A.M. They are too strict, enforcing rules that make little sense such as a rule from 2 years ago about wearing hijabs or headphone or anything of the sort. While the rules and enforcement are obnoxious and arguably racist (like banning debate when students used the "race card"), the school does provide a great education and did form a way for me to think about my future and the world. The school does have many opportunities for education and can prepare your child for a wonderful future.

Going to public school in NYC is an experience unlike anything else in the nation. You're surrounded by other students from vastly different backgrounds who all are determined and strive to succeed. However, the environment is not competitive, at least in the schools I've attended, students support each other and are happy for each other when we succeed. On the administrative level, the experience has been less pleasant. Oftentimes it has felt like the administration does not value the students as much as they should, nor does it feel like they make an effort to ensure our educational experiences are prosperous and engaging.
As a sophomore at The Clinton School, soon to be a junior I have acquired enough experience through the year and a half that I have been attending this school to speak on its pros and cons. One great thing is the amount of support and help available to you by teachers. you can really feel that the teachers care and do have your best interest at heart. However, Clinton thrives in many areas but diversity is not one of them. But, there are a few staff members who deserve all of the recognition in the world. First, Mr. Greenawalt. I can honestly and confidently say that Mr. Greenawalt works tirelessly to improve Clinton. He is always open to hear the ideas of the student body and their concerns, and is extremely interactive with us despite his very busy schedule as an administrator. Next, Ms. Peace, a courageous outspoken woman. Ms. Peace fights for the minorities at our school as if her life depended on it
