ICE's small classes harbor a close-knit, friendly community of students and teachers. Teachers, called by their first names, are open to personal and friendly conversations as well as one-on-one guidance and help. Classes at ICE are challenging, sometimes excessively so (11th grade is notoriously difficult and sleep depriving), but leave students with high standards for writing in college. Extra curricular classes, such as APs, are nearly absent and make it hard to stand out when applying to competitive colleges. However, senior year is unique in that students find internships for their second semester. Clubs and PSAL sports teams are numerous, and can be created with a simple chat with the very friendly principal and/or teachers. Overall, I am happy to have gone to this school, despite the stress of the last two years of high school, and recommend it for anyone looking to grow as a student in an environment totally unlike other, larger NYC public schools.

SO happy I was able to attend ICE. The small school dynamic makes students feel like family. The teachers many times treated us like their sons and daughters and I could see the extra effort they would put in to help their students. ICE obviously does things really differently than other schools, and while I admit its not for everyone, if you are a student there you will learn a lot and be more than prepared for college.
ICE is a school that provides public school students with an excellent humanities and neuroscience experiences one wouldn't receive at other NYC high schools. It gave me the opportunity to develop and carry out my own neuroscience study and has prepared me in more ways than I can count on how to write. However, it's math department is not focused on as much as others and due to poor funding, there aren't many opportunities to take a wide range of classes. You have a select group of classes you get to take each year and his was frustrating for me. I was bored and wanted to leave by the middle of my junior year because I wanted to take classes that I was interested in.
