High School of American Studies at Lehman College Reviews

101 reviews

My son is finishing his senior year at HSAS, and we could not be happier with the education he has received. More importantly, perhaps, he has fostered good and lasting friendships, and HSAS deserves credit for creating an atmosphere in which strong social bonds thrive. Although this is a highly competitive school in terms of academics, students are not competitive with each other as might be expected. There is very little downside to this school, but the college counseling can be placed in that realm. I think most parents struck out on their own during that "all important" search. We were very careful in our search for an excellent school, particularly because our son had to commute a long way to come to HSAS, but we are very happy that he's had the high school experience that he has had here. Highly, highly recommend it!

High School of American Studies is an excellent school that has helped me so much in the transition from middle school to high school, and has also helped me feel extremely prepared for college. It's very small, with about 100 students per grade, which can be a great thing because it feels like a family and all of the teachers know you, but can also be a con because it can feel too small at times. There also aren't as many options in regards to AP classes or language classes, but Lehman college offers a lot of college classes that are open to high school students. Regardless, the kids are very smart and the faculty is very supportive. I'm very glad I went here!
I had a great time at the school but I was also lucky in terms of teachers and my ability to handle the workload. Your experience definitely depends on who you get for Math and English soph/junior year. Excellent history teachers, the strongest part of the school. Good science classes, but not for AP. Fairly average/weak math department. English is a mix: half are great teachers, half are terrible, no real middle ground. Also, limited activities/resources due to size, but if you make an effort you form closer relationships with teachers which can help with college. Counselor can be unhelpful (pushes SUNYs and CUNYs very hard) and gives vague advice. Personal experience went well, but many students struggle both with the workload and mental health due to the difficulty/stressfulness and unhelpful teachers/administration.
