While it is admittedly a small school, the High School of American Studies (HSAS) is a sleeping giant in New York City's secondary public education roster. The competitive nature of enrollment assures that the best and brightest of the City's youthful aspirants receive a place in one of the friendliest and rigorous academic institutions this side of the Pond. Most, if not all, of the teachers are professionals with not only several years of teaching experience under their belts, but also boast MBAs, Ph. Ds, and cumulative decades of experience in high positions in their respective fields (in both the public and private sectors).

I would say that academically it's a mixed bag. The history and english departments at the school are absolutely amazing, and probably the best anywhere in America. Having said that, the science department is a mixed bag. Physics is great, and Chemistry is alright, but the AP class isn't awesome. Moreover, the math department is a joke, and the arts department doesn't exist. Also, the guidance counselor might be the worst person on the face of the planet. I want to be absolutely clear here, HSAS will make the college process a living nightmare. I actually go to professional therapy it was so bad. I would say it ruined my entire high school experience, but there are many positive aspects of the school that shouldn't be forgotten.
It was nice to have a small community in which all the students knew each other however it was a very competitive atmosphere. Grades and numbers are definitely emphasized over mental health and resources for those who may suffer from depression/anxiety resulting from the pressure of the school are basically nonexistent.
