Stuyvesant High School Reviews

Choosing to attend Stuyvesant is one of the best choices I've ever made. I love the inspiring people here, the challenging courses, the passionate teachers, and the diverse selection of after school activities. Though almost no one thinks English, social science, or arts when they think of Stuy, those are my favorite parts of Stuy. Of course, there's plenty for math and science people. But our other departments are just as strong, and arts and humanities people should not be scared of coming here!
Review Stuyvesant High School
Yes, Stuyvesant definitely does have a reputation of being competitive and while ther are those students who are cut-throat, throughout my time there, I have also met many kind-hearted and genuine students who are not only ambitious, driven, and hard-working, but are also extremely interested in helping out their fellow classmates. Studnets are not only passionate about academics but about a variety of sports, and other activities as well which can be showcased by our annual SING! performance. Becuase of the school's location, Stuyvesant students become independent and learn more than just academics by attending the school.
If you are one of the brightest and most talented kids in New York City, Stuyvesant is the place for you! We have over 200 clubs so you'll definitely find activities that align with your interests. There will never be a day where you grow bored and certainly not a day where you haven't learned anything. WARNING: Stuy can be an extremely and I mean extremely tough school which will most likely take a toll on you at some point mentally, physically, and emotionally. If you can't handle the stress of a high-performing, competitive environment with terribly difficult courses, you might want to rethink your decision of coming on board...
