High School of American Studies at Lehman College Reviews
I will always remember my history teachers at HSAS & their classes. HSAS prepared me for college-level work, and gave me the content knowledge and skills across subject areas to do well in my college courses. I am currently a high school teacher in the NYC DOE, and can tell that the rigor of the work at HSAS exceeds that of most high schools. I will say looking back, my social experience wasn't as great as I thought it was at the time. My grade was a bit cliquey and I myself didn't seize opportunities to get involved in the school community. Additionally, there were not many students Queens, which I was always disappointed about because it would have been nice to have had friends that lived closer to me. That being said, I am glad I went to HSAS as it sparked my interest in history, was a great academic experience and I made some friends along the way. I would recommend incoming students to get involved in clubs to make more meaningful connections with other students.
Academically, the school is tremendous at teaching and preparing students for college workload. Humanities curriculum is extensive, especially with American History. Highly recommend this school for anyone looking to go into fields such as law or politics. However, the STEM opportunities here are not sufficient, and I would advise another school like HSMSE if Math and Science are your interests. Socially, it was very cliquey in my grade and not the most friendly environment, but this seems to be improving in future grades.
HSAS provides a stimulating academic environment that prepares students for college. The teachers and faculty are excellent, but there are limited extracurricular activities and students are very competitive about grades. The workload is intense, and can be especially difficult to manage if coming from a less competitive middle school. The student body's general homogeneity and its lack of socioeconomic diversity can be very alienating for students who do not come from a specific background.
