I have been a volunteer at BIHS for several years. Sometimes I work in a classroom, and sometimes I work with students one on one. I love the school. The teachers are young and energetic and committed to the students. The students are motivated and have a very positive attitude toward learning. The atmosphere in the hallways is positive and playful. The atmosphere in the classrooms is focused and attentive. Brooklyn International is a truly wonderful place, and every time I go there to work with the students, I come away feeling like my day has been made brighter and that I have been part of something special.

I am a volunteer mentor at BIHS. I love the school. The students are motivated and the teachers are deeply caring and committed to helping their students succeed. I have been volunteering there for three years and have found it to be a fascinating and vibrant melting pot of students from all over the world. It is a unique and wonderful environment for learning.

This school serves students who have been in this country for three years or less. They are very motivated to succeed and well behaved. They are also quite hard working.
