My experience from this school could be better, the security can improve drastically. The teachers and students are one of the good aspects of the school, as I feel connected to many teachers. The school can do a better on sanitation, and the bathrooms can be improved. The school has a nice computer lab which easily accessible. Majority students come from minority families, and many are immigrants. The school sports activities could also improve as the only choices are Track, Basketball, and girls volleyball/softball. I enjoyed my high school experience, as the early college program has allowed earning an associates degree in liberal arts and sciences.

Hostos offers an early college program, is small enough for you to have a strong presence, teachers are friendly and accessible (they care about us), and clubs are fantastic! I've been here since middle school and I've loved ever second of it.
My experience at this school was far from perfect. It was a mess. I struggled with finding myself and was not happy at any point in my school career. That aside, the overall education level is great. I have been able to attend college classes which have put me ahead of others because I have college credits while I am in high school. Most students are graduating with an Associate's Degree as they graduate from high school, but I won't have this advantage because I am graduating from high school one year early, so I will not have enough college credits.
