Bx High School of Science prepares the students well for college. They offer many AP courses and the teachers are approachable and down-to-earth. There are a diverse range of recreational clubs for the student to join. Depending on where you live, the commute may be long as it is the second to last stop on the 4 train (Bedford Park).

At first you'd think that the teachers had no soul: how else would they be able to give out that much homework with a clear conscience? But honestly, you soon get used to the crushing workload, high grading standards, and ultra-competitive environment (check the lobby, folks. Bronx Science is not the place for people with low self-esteem) The students are brilliant, and that's why you end up enjoying the high school rather than hating it. Beyond that, it has a wide variety of clubs (so many options... so little time), great teachers, and a sterling reputation.

Perfect in every way! Highly supportive of parents and educating all of the college process. Wish I could turn back the hands of time and go here myself.

Simply the best high school in America. You can grow, prosper, and challenge yourself here for four years, in the setting of a comfortable environment. With a vigorous curriculum, Bronx Science allows you to choose what direction and choice of classes you want to take throughout your years spent here. Offers almost all AP courses, plus higher achieving courses that earn you college credits. You might not realize it in your freshman year, but this school provides you with the opportunity to be anything you want to be. Politician, doctor, chemists, physicist, historian, businessman, musician; you name it - and it's very much attainable. ** P.S. Even a Specialized High School like Bronx Science provides individual student-teacher attention, despite the many false allegations.
