New York City Geographic District No. 20 Reviews
In NYC ,there is a lot of diversity in schools. Everyone, regardless of financial or racial backgrounds is given an equal access to education. Schools make a great effort at accommodating disabled and special needs children as well. Course rigor is also up to standard now as the chancellor has introduced an "AP for all " campaign which focuses on exposing all students , privileged or not, to challenging material. The only problem that faces NYC schools is the conduct of students in the classroom. This disrupts teaching and learning and is reflected in the low test scores in the Regents exams.
The curriculum sometimes is not challenging enough. Aside from that, I feel safe in my school both physically and emotionally. School Safety ensures that all students feel physically safe, and the guidance counselors are all very supportive and helpful.
What made this school district truly great is all the diversity and the impact it had on all the class discussions and club options. In addition the teachers have a strong will to really help a student. On the other hand, my high school was always having problems with the facilities not functioning or having problems. This created an inconvient and sometimes even distracting environment.
