Academy for Environmental Leadership
- New York City Geographic District No. 32, NY
Niche User: I participated as a guest Speaker at the Academy for Environmental Leadership for Career Day. I was greeted by the Principal, Ms. ChantAndrea Blissett, who was extremely professional and actually sat in personally while I interacted within the class settings. In addition, she had a student greeting Committee and these young people were some of the most impressive young people I've encountered. Overall, I was very impressed with the developments that have taken place from years ago when I worked in the area of Bushwick. Keep up the incredible work!

Thurgood Marshall Academy for Learning & Social Change
- New York City Geographic District No. 5, NY
Senior: My experience with Thurgood Marshall Academy was like no other. I couldn't ask to be in any other school. I met wonderful people who turned into long term friends and had amazing student teacher relationships. TMA is the definition of a family. We are constantly looking out for each other and pushing each other to our greatest potential. The teachers are phenomenal, very caring. Their goal is to make sure everyone is well educated to the best of their ability. Everyone is very open minded and respectful to the different cultural backgrounds. One thing I would like to change about Thurgood Marshall Academy is the clubs and sports. Everything is just centered around basketball, there are others who have serious talents in other sports who would love to showcase that in a school setting. Overall theres no place i'd rather be.

Knowledge & Power Preparatory Academy International High School (KAPPA)
- New York City Geographic District No. 23, NY
Alum: I graduated from Kappa in 2016, and I can say that I enjoyed my experience there. Our inner city school was in the middle of a popular area in the Bronx, NY. Being that we were in a preparatory academy, all of the faculty members as well as the administration had high expectations for the students. So they pushed us in the direction of success, with goals of ultimately preparing us for college. I was involved in the International Baccalaureate(IB) program with other select students in my grade once we reached 11th grade. The IB program is a very rigorous program that I can say definitely prepared me for what college would throw my way in the following year of graduation. But besides the educational aspects, I can honestly say that the overall environment of the school felt like a second home. A great place to come to learn due to the community based lifestyle.

Pathways College Prep School
- New York City Geographic District No. 29, NY
Senior: I've had a fun experience here during my 4 years. Staff is nice and helpful, always looking out for its students. The school is a little unorganized in certain situations, BUT the outcome always ends up being good. Since middle school is also part of this, it can be chaotic at times, but it doesn't stop the flow of class transfers.
