I was a student at this place. I had such horrible experience. I graduated & because of their lack of organization i never got my diploma & was accused of lying saying that I did. 1st they tell me I picked it up then they tell me they mailed it to me. In my years of this place I never received a phone call, email or mail. I truly believe since there is so many students in this school the teachers, councilors & staffs goes lunatic. They don't know how to speak with manner, always always looking for arguments & their attitude never stops. I'm a good quiet non trouble making student& even I didn't get any respect from them. I was even scared to speak with my councilor because of her rudeness attitude towards every one & she was always shouting. I feel like they dont try to understand us or help us understand them, they just want to control us how ever they like because they think they have the power to do so. I wonder why students are always fighting in that school, they pick it up from the behaviors of the teachers, staffs, security guards & councilors.

Dewitt Clinton high school is one of the worst schools in the bronx.The school has tried to have control over its students I personally feel they have lost control.I had a daughter graduate in2010 n it was some what ok the school.Now I have my second daughter in the school and she hates it she is trying to attend n focus on her education bit the students ,well alot of the students I think mostly go to have a hang out stop n a place to start trouble.Rite now I have a problem with trying to find another school my child is tired od being surrounded by bullies n fights every day.Its a sad thing there are great teachers n its a great envirorment but the children mess up all the hard work put into that school goals.I just feel very disappointed.To know the history how fabulius it was,and to see now its not such a safe school.

This school has a great amount of advance, challenging academic programs. All the teachers are there to help; as well as the counselors. The MACY Honor Program is the best in the ares. There are really really really bad students but there are also geniuses. The only bad thing it the over crowding, but overall I love this school and hope to finish there.

The step team is awesome!!! I love the school. There's always some activity going on. It rarely gets boring unless you make it boring. I'm always looking forward to another day of school... Majority of the teachers are cool and are willing to help you most of the time. I Love Clinton!!!!

My daughter went to this school, the Einstein program but this program is not what it used to be. Some of the teachers were inept and unfit to teach. Some were really good, however the student quality caused some stuff to get lost. If there is no classroom management, instruction is difficult to come across I transferred my daughter to another school.

I dont think this school is bad at all. My son is in the ROTC program and he is having the best experience of his life. His grades are great and he even loves to do community service. I think that if a child wants to get ahead in life he could overcome any negative enviornment, every school has their good and bad.

As a parent I dislike this school very much! after 2 years of frustration, I finally got to transfer my daughter to a better school. Teachers and staff could care less about the students and their learning, Im glad my daughter got out on time.

I am a graduate of this school and I personally hated this school. There was lack of diversity and the measurements this school took for the sake of safety was imprisoning. Unless you are admitted into the Macy Program, more specifically Einstein, I wouldn't even recommend consider going here. I am a college student now at Binghamton and let me tell you, my high school experience was the worst.

Well as a former student at DeWitt Clinton High School. I graduated with my regents diploma. The teachers here really do care about their students and the security guards there too. This school is a very nice environment to be in. Its like being home because you feel safe and cared about. I highly recommend this school.

This is a very good school compared to the other public high schools in the Bronx. My son never had any problems with other students or staff members. He loved playing sports and the academic programs were excellent. I would highly recommend this school.

This is truly one of the best high schools in the bronx. The availability of different sport programs lend to the development of individuals that have a true understanding of team work.

Well, my son takes Macy classes which are excellent for students who wants to go in a near future to a highly selective college or just a selective one. It offers a 4 year rigorous academic curriculum with required classes such as Literary Criticism, Legal theory, and AP Classes. You all know that Advanced Placement Classes are a major part in college application. Advanced Placement Classes are very rigorous and very difficult which required students to read up to 10 pages for each Advanced Placement Classes they have and at the end of the class they have to take a test that cost approxiamtely eighty two dollars and can earn up college credit. Parents are very involved in parent-teacher conferences. The students must take a one semester class of music and art. The school offers all kind of sports such as hockey, tennis, basketball, baseball, swimming and so onnn. g

I'm not a school parent, but a graduate from the class of 89'. This school really groomed me for what I had to deal with in College. I would have not changed a thing about my High School choice. Clinton 'Was' an excellent choice for me.

As a former student at Dewitt Clinton H.S. I think this a great school for all school because the teachers are great.We get to go outside for lunch and if we don't feel like going out for lunch we could go to the cafetaria and ate for free. They also have a lot of sports like basket ball, base ball, foot ball, soft ball, and lots more. I think this is one of the top schools in the Bronx.
