Incredibly innovative high school. Perfect population size- close community, but you're often meeting new people or getting closer to acquaintances. The teachers are incredible! So dedicated, they listen to the students, and they put a lot of effort into creating engaging and impact classes. Our strongest departments are English and Science. Art and PE departments could be improved. The college office is one of the best of any high school I've seen, so helpful! Diversity isn't outstanding but the administration is making a huge effort to reach more prospective students of color. There are a lot of stairs but its worth it. I've had an amazing experience, I highly recommend it.

The NYC iSchool is an amazing school where every student will work hard and do well for the time they are here. This schools offers a mastery policy, meaning you are allowed to retake tests and redo assignments until you show mastery in that subject area. Furthermore, this school offers an array of classes you can apply to, and some very unusual classes at that. Currently, I am learning about history through movies in a class called "Reel Global History", but last year, I took a class called "Food Revolution" in which we learned about nutrition and eating healthy, and even went down to our own garden in Battery park! One this I would change is how much work you get. Some students might be in shock in college especially because you are not required to take any AP classes in this school, and if you don't, you can have little to no work.
NYC iSchool is one of those unique high schools that many students and parents outside our community will check to see if we are a private institution- based on many factors... including our peculiar name! However we are public, and truly one of the most different public experiences in New York City. Entering my sophomore year at this school as a transfer student opened many doors with opportunities such as internships, educational programs from colleges, and even a volunteer trip abroad for high school students. Despite the 4-5 flights of stairs to get to the school, the environment is filled with students who are open to make friends with anyone and teachers who will often go out of their ways to make sure each student has all necessities to understand lessons being taught. Classes are customized by students, with the opportunity to apply to AP's in sophomore year. I loved a lot of the modules at the ischool from theater production to pop up restaurant and astrobiology.
