Science Skills Center High School For Science, Technology & The Creative Arts Reviews

When I first came to Science Skills High School i knew something was wrong the moment I looked at the building and it said Science "KILLS". The school was always warm, small, the gym looked nothing like a gym and the teachers were always there to help you when you needed it. Misinterpreting the environment, I always thought why the school had poor facilities and never imagined it was once a factory. Even while facing the fact our school didn't have much to offer, I found out the school was warm because of the people who were so aspiring, helpful and bright. Whether it was during school life or during things that happen outside of school life, there was no circumstance that prevented a teacher from bonding with their student and making them strive for the best they can be. The teachers provided me the SKILLS I needed that would push me achieve more and to change lives like they did.

I think what many students want to see change is the building (Mainly the gym), uniform policy, school colors and some teachers. Other than that the school is pretty ok we share a building (Waters edge campus) with 3 other schools. We have a lot of opportunities such as AP classes /college credit classes/programs like college now, Internships, NHS (national honors society), student government and other student organizations that hold their own events. We have a decent amount of good teachers deans and assistant principals that are easy to talk to. We have an awesome program called PGC (peer group connections) where seniors and Juniors do activities in order bond with their peers, learn lessons and ask questions about our school. We have lots of clubs but not a lot of students join said clubs. Clubs are literally as simple as asking a teacher to supervise, get approval and get a number of students to sign up, I would know in my freshman year me and a few friends started an anime club.
My experience at Science Skills Center was pretty good. I originally wanted to attend Fort Hamilton High School but I wasn’t accepted. I was admitted to a honors program so I didn’t mind attending Science Skills Center anymore. I was quite pleased with the school, because I was allowed to be apart of the summer bridge program which allowed me to take the living environment regents that I passed which made me happy, because that was one less regents I had to take. The program allowed for me to meet students who were and weren’t in my grade level and made me feel more comfortable in that environment. However, one thing I didn’t like about Science Skills Center was that we weren’t allowed to take the algebra regents, because there was too much work to cover in that 5 week period of time.
