This school is great because there are many people you can connect with.

Peers, teachers, staff.

It is also a good school because it is evolving. Adding more and more new courses to the curriculum every year. Ap world history, physics, theater and etc...

What i love most about this school are the extracurricular activities. The official sports you can play through Psal and the non-official sports they run through other organizations. Competing constantly for trophies and championships.

This school after a few more years and a little more elbow grease, might become one of the best.

I met my best friends here, and they will agree with me that coming to this school ruined our education. We were not even prepared for the Regents, let alone the SAT. UAI has not enough clubs, teachers, or books. The technology cart is barely working. Now, they don't even have enough calculators. There are barely any lessons, and students are assigned unnecessary and irrelevant assignments. Only this year the school got two APs for the seniors and finally found a chemistry teacher for the juniors. The most annoying and stupid rule of UAI is locked bathrooms; you may be dying and in real urgency to use the bathroom, but if you come to UAI, get used to running up and down the floors just to find an open bathroom or a dean to unlock the stupid bathroom door. Gym locker room stinks 24/7, all year round; you can't breathe in there. In general, being a minority student at a minority high school was not a great experience at all!
Urban assembly institute of math and science for young women provided a lot of After-school activities, specifically Girls inc which is a non profit organization that empowers girls at my school to go out into the world, explore new things, join forces with other girls to create new things. This helps girls in my school to have a place to go after school to make new friends learn new things about what’s around us and get hands on experience. Although my school provides extracurricular activities, I think it is important for my school to work on adding more one on one attention with juniors and seniors because they are getting ready to become adults and it is important they get as much information and preparedness for what is up next for them in the future.
