Stuyvesant High School Reviews

I am a rising senior, class of 2019. There’s a whole array of students here. But the majority of the students are academically driven. It’s not too hard to stay on top of your courses if you work for it. There will me many sleepless nights if you procrastinate. But if you can manage you time efficiently and are dedicated to your schoolwork, then classes will be doable. There are so many elective to take. Personally, I don’t have the best academics because I wanted to ensure that I could also fully enjoyed my high school experience. It’s been a stressful three year. I’ve come close to a lot of meltdowns, but I’ve also had a lot of pleasant memories here!

The diversity in its student body. I feel that ever since I've stepped into the doors of Stuyvesant High School that I've changed so much as a person. It's an environment filled with so many amazing people, both students and teachers that I've considered my second family. It's been a phenomenal four years for me here, and I honestly cannot imagine my life anywhere else. As a freshman, I practically knew no one as the five other classmates that came to this school with me, I rarely shared any classes with them. But I met this person in my Freshman Composition class, and she introduced me to her group of friends in the lunchroom, and the rest of it is history as I've made so many more friends, met so many wonderful people. I wouldn't replace this life with anything ever. Sure, there were some downs in my experience, but a lot of it was positive, both academically and socially!
Stuyvesant is a great school for academics, undoubtedly. Despite being known as a STEM school, Stuy has amazing English and Social Studies departments. Stuy also has tons of extracurriculars, to the point where it’s overwhelming (we have like 44 sports teams). There’s also tons of help for college, so that’s a plus.

So on paper, Stuy seems pretty great. And I generally think I made the right choice in going there. But everything you’ve heard about the competitive culture at Stuy is true. Students are extremely competitive, not just with grades, but with “leadership positions” in various clubs. I’ve seen some really talented and smart people burn out from the pressure. Even those who succeed at Stuy do so under immense pressure and often damage their mental health.

So just be aware that Stuy has amazing opportunities, but you’re gonna pay a pretty big price. Even if you think you can “handle” it, you won’t. The culture is pervasive and easy to get swept up in.
