During my time at NYC Museum School, I met some genuine and amazing people. There were certainly students who really did well academically, however there needed to be more resources available. Most of the teachers were hardly accessible and the administration was quick to shut down any idea that the students had. Also, there needs to be more help during the college process including essay writing workshops, information sessions on colleges, student panels and scholarship opportunities. This wold prove to give students more of an insight into college and think smartly about where they really want to go. The school has great diversity however, there was a scanty amount of clubs and activities to get students involved in the school atmosphere. By allowing students to make their own clubs and actually have the support of the administration, students would be able to really delve into their interests and feel more at home in school.

Honestly my experience here was the best four years of my life. Incredible, outstanding, and amazing are words to describe my time here at NYC Museum School. I’ve made friends here that I will keep forever and ever. If I were to apply to high school again I would 100% put this first. I would say when I got into Museum in 8th grade I was so so so upset. I thought I would have a terrible time (based on what my MS friends said). I was so so soooooooo wrong about this amazing school. The academics here are great. Clashing and synthesizing brains together forming a safe a creative place to learn. Not one time, not once have I ever seen bullying here. Yes there are a few things that need a change including the number of clubs but even when we didn’t have clubs it was still the words how I described it. Incredible, outstanding, and amazing. I hope this helps to people who are questioning applying/ deciding if they want to go to this school.
It’s a great school, with a great feel of environmental space however, there is a lack of student and higher faculty respect meaning that they would call you a sack of potatos if you dress in tank top. Stating that the rape culture does not exist while they close the decent bathroom on a one floor high school because they are afraid student will smoke in there leaving student to suffer in a roach and mold infested bathrooms. Other than that you you really try to apply yourselves to the work you may gain some knowledge from the school.
