Freshman: I have given NEST+M a 4/5 stars because it excelles in benefitting the students lifestyle. Most of the teachers are great at teaching, creating hands on activities and group activities that would most likely benefit us later on. But at the same time, they are leient enough to extend a deadline if it’s absolutely needed for the student’s life outside of their busy school life. Additionally, we have college week where the teachers would explain to us about certain colleges (and universities). And there is also a college office. However, there aren’t many clubs, NEST+M is still developing in clubs. A few examples, Key club, tech crew, debate, and student government. Correlating, the PA helps out a lot, especially in setting up school events. The hold bake sales and breakfast for the adults and teachers on some mornings. Overall, NEST+M is a gifted and talented k-12 school, with different students coming from all five boroughs, bringing in their diverse cultures and unique colors.

The Anderson School

Middle School Student: The Anderson school is a small school with both academic challenge and a wonderful sense of community. The admissions process, which is highly selective and challenging, does not reflect the academics of the school, which are taught to every student the same way, regardless of their level. The teachers are excellent, and students learn a lot; it is overall an amazing school.

Junior: I cannot say enough about how much SEM has helped me grow and evolve as an academic and as a leader! When I first came to SEM, I believed that I was only an above-average math/science student however, after just one year at SEM, my teachers' passion and encouragement completely changed my mind, and I now plan to pursue a major in biology in college. Before coming to SEM, I thought that the only kind of leadership that one could assume in High School was to be the class president, yet SEM proved to change my perspective again! Apart from the vast number of opportunities there are to be a class officer, club president, or sports team captain at SEM, there are other ways to be a leader as well; I learned to lead a dialectical discourse at SEM's harkness tables by inviting others to share their thoughts. SEM has given me the confidence and motivation I will need to venture out into the world and onto college while also giving me a warm and welcoming place to return to as my alma mater.
