My experience at Manhattan Hunter Science Highschool was amazing. The low number of students in the school made it possible for class sizes to be small and intimate, relationships with teachers and among students were genuine. Everyone in the school knew each other, all the teachers and staff knew me by name! There were many clubs available, I myself participated in a culinary club and teacher club. Thanks to this school being an early college school, I am pursuing my education at Hunter College.

One of the biggest positives about my school is the exposure we get to college life in our senior years. After junior year, we leave the campus and finish our final year at Hunter College where we get to take college courses. I've been excited about this since I started, it's one of my favorite things about MHSHS.
If MHSHS were to change anything I think it should be its method in keeping its students from engaging with other schools and working towards forming relationships with them instead. The only time you really ever see any integration between the schools is on the sports teams, but outside of that, I feel that MHSHS remains separated in their own bubble. I liked the sense of unity I felt as a campus once I joined a team and actually got to know students who went to the other schools. I think it's be good for MHSHS to try and create a sense of togetherness
Manhattan Hunter Science High School is a qualified and effective institution in preparing high-school students for College and has continued to provide alumni that has potential to change the future.
Although, most students over there lack the drive and dedication to create Clubs/Organizations (Extra-curricular activities) given that they are heavily "burdened by the amount of Homework".
