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 High School offers an immense number of opportunities to explore a diverse range of interests, from academics to athletics and the arts. There is a way for everyone to participate in an activity of their interest in some shape or form. The school pushes its students to excel in academics, challenging them with rigorous courses and offering a wide variety of electives but also providing resources to aid students having trouble with particular subjects, such as peer tutoring and after-school sessions with teachers. The student body is overall friendly, supportive, and open-minded, as well as the faculty, although there are some discrepancies in teaching quality. Although there are definitely some amazing teachers who care about their students, some teachers are not suited for a classroom environment or do not have the best interactions with students.
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!
