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!

I'm a student at Stuyvesant and overall I've had a very good experience. Stuy has a pretty intense pressure cooker environment, but everyone is really motivated and there are so many class opportunities. Stuy is officially a STEM school, but its Arts and Music programs are incredible, the choirs are amazing, and SING! is a musical competition that half the school gets involved in. The curriculum is super rigorous, which is good for college preparedness but sometimes rough on mental health. Still, the Clubs and Activities are plentiful and there's always something to be a part of. Our sports are pretty bad, but they are fun teams to be on. Stuy is an intense place, but it can be a very excellent school.
There are some amazing teachers that make it their priority that you understand not only the curriculum but beyond. The administration really cares about each and every student and runs the school very well. The school itself is well kept and provides a great environment. There are amazing sport and club opportunities, something for everyone! Would highly recommend
