I enjoy the environment that Stuyvesant promotes especially with the students that particularly create the experience. The student agency allows for an interwoven network of clubs that host movie nights, guest appearances, and musical performances.
Moreover, I feel as if the Tribeca area adds a lot to the Stuyvesant experience. Being, in the heartland of Manhattan, local delis, as well as Battery Park and the harbor makes for unique experiences. Clubs such as the Environmentalist Club takes advantage of this by breeding oysters and releasing them out into the sea.
Not only that, but teachers play well into the Stuyvesant culture. Many, while unorthodox relate to students through popular media, music, modern events, and even video games. The staff as well continually show support for students with free water bottles and even allowing the entire student body to vote for where $2000 funding could go towards waterbottle refilling, printing, or charging stations!

Stuyvesant is such an elite high school that gives many opportunities to its students. However, diversity seems to fall short and acceptance is from one test (SHSAT). I believe that one test does not define how smart you are. All students in this school is very intelligent but many are competitive which causes a toxic environment. We are conditioned to compare oneself to another and slowly and surely, there are people who start to lose confidence due to this. There are also people who don’t have a good mental stability causing them to have negative thoughts that affect their daily lives. I myself was one of them but I have gotten help with therapy. In essence, Stuyvesant is academically great, but you have to surround yourself with nontoxic people that do not make you compare yourself to someone else. Mental health is way above academics.
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!
