As a freshman in William Cullen Bryant High School, I can tell you that I really love this school. Before school started I was terrified of this school. Reading all the reviews freaked me out. I wanted nothing to do with this school. But now that I actually go here I love it! There’s so much diversity that you’re bound to fit in. No one will judge you. And there’s so many clubs that you for sure are gonna find one that you like. Sadly I have to transfer out of Bryant next year. I will miss this school dearly. I made some pretty good friends over these few months. I really don’t want to transfer out! The school I will be going to isn’t diverse at all. And it kinda scares me. But what can I do. Bryant is really amazing and you should enroll here!

William Cullen Bryant high school assisted me to my journey of becoming an adult. It shaped me into the person that I am today. It's activities/sports/classes gave me opportunities that helped me figure out what I like. I explored the dance class my freshman year and found my passion for dancing, then I auditioned for its dance company, got in and was a part of it ever since. It was truly the best time of my high school days, I met friends that became close to me and have formed a second family. Bryant also offers so many regular, AP, and elective classes that help students figure out their likes and interests as it did for me. My senior year I took forensic science class to see if I would be interested in Criminal Justice field. By taking that class I found out that indeed i'm interested and that helped me narrow down my college list. Furthermore, college classes are offered directly in Bryant which not only gives students a taste of college, but also provides them credits.
It is overall a very good school. Students like me are offered many programs and opportunities. We are encouraged to do our best to have a successful future. Many programs and new traditions are being introduced into the school environment which makes it very exciting to go to school everyday. A program like Global Kids is very helpful because they offer help in any subject and brings us on trips in order to get educated on important things such as colleges that we may attend in the future. Many sports, after school programs and tutoring gives students the motivation to accomplish as much as they put their minds to. The school provides us with as many resources we need and ensure that the learning environment is adjusted to our needs.
