Dewitt Clinton High School 1

I'm a freshman at this school and i can honestly say its like what people say, its one of the worst High schools in the bronx. If you want to get a good education where you actually learn things go somewhere else. You hear teachers & other faculty members cursing, setting a bad example. Security guards and incredibly rude and so are other staff members. I barely learn anything and feel like this school needs MAJOR improvement! I'm seriously transferring for my sophomore year out of this HORRIBLE school!

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.

Having graduated from Clinton in 1985 and when this school was all male has made me a fine young man. For those who send their children to this school and decide to hang out instead of learn and take advantage of its faculty should be ashamed. This was an awesome school then and I'm sure it continues to be a great school.

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.
