My experience with my past and current teachers has been great! My AP composition teacher from my junior year was very inspiring and opened my eyes and educated me in a lot of topics I didn't usually pay attention to or was aware of in the past. Although he was an english teacher, he taught us about climate and change. We watched several documentaries and read books on how animal agriculture is the one of the biggest problems we face when dealing with climate change and the negative effects that meat consumption has not only on the environment but on our own health perspectives. I also became more interested in politics and learning more about environmental studies which has lead to my decision of taking an AP course in it this year.
Review Fiorello H. Laguardia High School Of Music & Art & Performing Arts
Being that LaGuardia is both an arts school and an academic school, there is such a variety of classes to choose from. That's definitely what I love about it. I love that fact that the kids here are so uniques and so passionate about their art. There's so many different AP classes where the student can challenge themselves and there's also many rigorous art classss. For example, I'm in senior chorus, one of the hardest chorus' to get into in my school. However, I'm not sure if I would do it over again, because although Inhad many great experiences here and made many great friends, I'm ready for college!
range of different classes allows you to find your future interest! Academics are fairly rigorous and certain studio classes are enjoyable! The students are extremely open, and you do not need to feel scared of fitting in! Many of the teachers have their own stories to tell, and many know what they are doing; however, the facility is somewhat clean, as many of the students do not know what a trash can is and dump their garbage on the floor.
