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.

My overall experience at ICE was the best! The teachers are very very caring of their students and will do anything to help! They are very encouraging and motivating teachers. The curriculum at this school is very engaging and really requires you to think more as an individual and to think for yourself! The students are mostly friendly and welcoming. It is a good environment to be in and learn in. What makes ICE different from the rest is that we have teachers who truly care for their students, it is a welcoming environment. Students can be themselves not very cliquey. Curriculum is excellent!
The teachers at the school are very mindful of the difficulty of the work being produced and will do everything in their power to help students whether it be in class or after school. Teaches tend to vary in the consistency in grading, some teachers may grade harsher than others but all around the grading is fair. Teachers also make sure to give great feedback on essays and projects to ensure that the students all do well. Teachers give interesting lessons where majority of the class will speak out and participate in the discussion. There are always new and interesting topics/ lessons given by the teachers.
