I transferred to YCD junior year. This was one of the most important decisions I've ever made. I received top notch education from the finest teachers in New York City which led me to have a 3.3 GPA and a 1030 on my SATs. Also, I earned a scholarship to Western Connecticut State University. I was also a stand out athlete on the football team. We lost in the championship by 1 point. The students at YCD are so welcoming to incoming freshmen and we all love each other like a family. That's what separates YCD from other schools. We are a family.

This school is the best school you can attend in brooklyn. Go on trips for free and have honor roll ceremony at the end of every marking period. The administration really cares about their students. they do not play with their culture and have respect for it. Security is very tight in school and also we have healthy food and clean water. There's a college coach to help both juniors and seniors with their applications, scholarships and also financial aid process. School nurse is provided. If you need any financial help, you can go to the office or tell your teachers.
In the years I have spent here I would have to say its been an overall great experience. The staff tends to every student and their individual needs. New programs and opportunity are always on the rise. Some things I would like to see change is the lack of diversity. Brining students from all walks of the ponds better prepare the students for whats to come. Also giving the students more areas where constructive work can be done, but overall a great experience I will not forget.
