High School for Dual Language & Asian Studies Reviews

I revered High School For Dual Language & Asian Studies for its tight knit community and rigorous academic curriculum. As a senior in this school, I feel a sense of calamity for being in a friendly environment of a small school. I was truly noticed by every teacher. The teachers are fun loving and always open to helping you. They are all from well rounded institutions. Personally I looked for a liberal arts curriculum school, and HSDLAS has a rigid liberal foundation for students still exploring their interests. The food is high quality! HSDLAS contains essential clubs and activities such as philosophy, photography, and the list is endless! It would be important to change the diversity of HSDLAS, as the majority there are of Asian descent. I would also incorporate more clubs and activities of social justice and activism as it is a very traditional high school.

I am currently a senior at this school, I personally feel like this school has help me grown academically. This school push you to do better and so the workload can be a lot depending on the classes , but at the same time, most of the teachers are really passionate in what they do and they are willing to help if you have any problem. The courses are challenging and the workload is a lot , but they ultimately increase your college readiness. Since this school is pretty small, everyone knows one-another and you would be able to meet your friend multiple time throughout the day. This school requires everyone to take Chinese language course, which can be challenging if Chinese is not your first language.
The students are all really nice and willingly to help each other. Some teachers are helpful, but some give up so easily on students that don’t get it the first tim. The staff is very strict, and dress code is very strict as well. I think the school is too small because every year more students come and the one floor is not enough. In addition, the staff should work with the students instead of ignoring their ideas. For example, students are not allowed outside for lunch, but the other schools can. Remember if you come to this school, chinese is a priority. About 90% of the school speaks Chinese. So if you don’t know how to, the first feels a little isolating. In addition, everyone has their own cliques.
