New York City Geographic District No. 20 Reviews
New York is full of diversity. Not only do you learn academically, but you are exposed to different cultures and races which is a learning experience all on its own. The teachers are book smart as well as street smart. It is a busy district with population growing more each day. The teachers have a lot of students in their classrooms and it could be hard to help each and every student. Some students may not raise their hand when they need help and it could be easily unnoticed that a child may be getting bullied. But with the great opportunity New York has to offer, hundreds of jobs are opened to help students in need whether for tutoring, counseling, therapy and so on. What is great about NYC is the affordability it has to offer. All children get to eat lunch for free and CUNY schools make it affordable for young adults to receive a education at reasonable prices.
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.
