My experience in IHS at Union Square is very memorable, I learned how diversity is very important to a public, meeting with students from more than 50 countries around the world, with their cultures, it is the only place i feel like a home, Unity, and Cherish link the students together, no matter where you came from. The teachers are caring and willing to work students, The Principal and the School community make sure we have all the resources needed, (computers, all School Supplies). Students are safety and they never starve, Extracurricular activities are provided to all student who feel free to join it, International High School become home for the students, it becomes a memory in our journey, We grown up a lot in this school, our English is improving every single day. I recommend anyone who English is their second language to get enrolled in International High School at Union Square, it is a daring place to have hope, and pursue their academic success.

The school looks fine for people who just came to the US. Teachers are very friendly and motivate their students. Some changes could be to introduce classes such as AP and fix school's supplies such as laptops, boards, and the wifi connection.
This high school is so good for people who recently arrive to USA or New York. This school have a lot of culture an diversity. The teachers are very good and the support that they offer to other students is very good. But if you search challenge or difficulty, others schools are better.
