Kurt Hahn is different from many other public schools. Regents Exams aren't administrated there. Also they push students to come out of their comfort zone and to display the 5 commitments. Respect, Compassion, Stewardship, Courage, and Perseverance. Although this is good Kurt Hahn is a small school so the class options are limited.

I transferred to Kurt Hahn for my 10th grade year and so far it has been a fun ride. I’ve grown to love the dean and I also made some good friends. Being around the right company has made my grades go back up and the teachers are very helpful and understanding. The cafeteria gives us good food ( sometimes) and the guidance counselors are the best, I don’t regret coming to Kurt Hahn it was the best choice for me.
No extracurricular activities, No positivity, No inspiration, no help for students. Extremely underfunded also.
