As the parent of a 12th grader, I'm very happy with my son's education these past 4 years. He has grown into a disciplined, responsible, and thoughtful young adult, and I credit Harbor School for a lot of that development. The CTE programs are amazing. Through CTE and sports my son has had many enriching experiences and school trips. All of this has been of no or little cost to me, so I feel very fortunate. The principal is passionate and committed about his work. The partnership with the Billion Oyster Project is commendable. The campus is one of the overlooked gems of NYC school system. I really can't say enough what a tremendous value and service this school provides.

At first I had misgivings about the commute and the focused curriculum. However it was my son's first choice and I made sure he understood his success would depend on what he put into it. If your child is not excited about the prospect of attending, I would seriously consider other options.

My oldest is graduating from New York Harbor School this year, and has been accepted to the majority of colleges for which she applied. The level of research she has been able to conduct while still in high school has given her a huge advantage, and I love that Harbor School students are encouraged to work hard at solving complex issues like climate change immediately, without waiting until they're in the workforce. The administration and teachers are incredibly caring and smart, the PTA is engaged, and the campus is beautiful. This school has it all for a motivated student.
The things I love most about Harbor school is the fact that it’s a Career Technical Education school that gives NY students a chance to explore the maritime industry and give them an opportunity to do things that most people in NYC don’t. Harbor school has taught me how to rebuild and maintain Engines and Electrical systems onboard vessels. Also I’ve learned how to weld, Operate boats throughout the harbor, But most importantly the importance of working together in a Working environment and how everyone must help each other in order for you to succeed in our society today.
