Science High is a great academic and college prep experience. The nurturing environment has made a difference in the lives of many students over the years.
This school has always been there for me and im happy to say that it still is. When i was 14 and in the 9th grade i dropped out of school. This school science high. At that time i did not care everything for me was up so i thought? i stayed out of school for 1 whole year before my parents knew. A teacher by the name of Mrs. Thomas i dont know if she still teaches there but she came to my home and talked me right back in school.Science high was there for me and im sure it'll be there for you and yours! This school was never a waste of time even when i was fast and dropped out. I graduated with a scholarship and now attend John Hopkins University. It did miracles for me. Science high has and always will be the place to be!
Science for now has been a good experience but once we move to the new school I bet it is going to be one of the best in education and just a place to be.
Science High School is possibly the best school in Newark. The teachers are great and really want the students to succeed. Although the building is small my daughter learned to adapt very quickly. Science is extremely safe. The students are very well behaved and curteous. The academics are excellent. This school is even ranked 70 among all of the top schools in New Jersey. Im proud to have my daughter attend this fine institute of higher learning.
Science High School is not to be judged by its appearance. I'll admit that the school is a fire hazard and some times it is too crowded. But all of the students are towards the top in the district. Alot more than 75% of the students go to college, and there has yet to be a problem with students graduating. And keep in mind that there is a slightly advanced curriculum. The science that is learned in this school is superior to that in other schools. Tenth Graders at this school and two others take Physics, which is not required at all in a few other schools. The school maintains as much safety standards as possible though alot can be improved. There is a PTSO that conducts regular meetings, the teachers stay late and come early to help students, and there are many ExC activities. Good Choice for Newark Students.
I was a student at Science High School. I loved the fact that the teachers, students, parents, and principal are so involved. The school is small but this doesn't but a hault on the learning process. The hardest part about Science High is getting in and out of the Freshman/ Sophmore Locker room and getting along with every student. I helped design the new Science Park High School...and my only question is when will it be done? (It was promised a very long time ago) the Board of Edu needs to give funds to excellent schools like this one. CLASS OF 2002...KEEP SHINING!
I highly recommend Science High School to other parents and prospective students. Great school and staff that actually cares about the students.
Science High School may APPEAR to be a good school academically but the school it self is terrible. The school has too many students for such a small building. They have classrooms in places I wouldn't even imagine. It is a fire hazard waiting to happen. I had to pull my child out of there because of the poor conditions, and my child is doing better at another school. Stacey Johnson
I was claas on 2001, Science High School was the best and most involved school I ever went to. The teachers were involved with each aspect of each individual student and they were very helpful and concerned.
