High School is a scary place. Parents and kids who are looking for a high school should remember their High School experience and not have some lofty goals of what High School looks like on TV. That being said, if you child wants to learn and you are doing your job as a parent, your child will do well. New Utrecht High School has an amazing staff. Any time I reach out to the school I am given their full attention - even during the summer for make-up Regents exams. My first child graduated with a 103 average (AP and Honors Courses) and received a free ride to St Francis College. My second son has a 90 average and has received multiple scholarship opportunities for College. My third son will be attending in the Fall and I have no doubt that he will do well. Be a part of your childs' education, go to conferences, check out the website, join the PTA. Make it a learning experience for both of you.

This school is great. As a student I see how students and teachers act. Of course there are those annoying teachers but most are really nice and car about each of their students. I have not seen any fights or bullying going on. There are bad students, as in every school but if you stay with the right group of people you'll be fine. I recommend this school.

Most of the teachers are great but the students there are horrible. My experience in this high school was extremely boring. the only reason you would want to go to new Utrecht high school is for their sports teams. I am a freshman here and the students are disrespectful as well as some of the staff.I am a straight A honors students and have never had such a horrible experience in any other school. do not send your children here.

I am a graduate. I graduated two years ago back in 2011. New Utrecht HS is a pretty good high school an average school. It is not had in fact it is the most easier high school to attend and do well by getting a good grade. When I first started few years ago like 6 years ago back in 2007 when I first walk into the school I hate it. And I still felt the same until my sophomore year in Utrecht. Since I hate the school at the beginning I wanted to leave that go and transfer out to Fort Hamilton but it is not up to me not the only one who wants to transfer there others kids as well. But I stood in that school for the past four years from 2007 started and graduate in 2011. There be students who attend Utrecht for a year or two and left. I stood in the school and met great teacher who I had some of the teachers are nice easy to get alone maybe a couples of them are strict. I friends with some of those teachers outside the school and still stay in contact with them. I would love to come back to Utrecht to teach in the near future as a teacher a physical education teacher teaching a gym class and maybe beoming a coach for the baseball team or something.

I am going to be a sophomore at this school and have very little negative things to say about it. Every school has its bad kids and exceptional kids, but of course the media and newspapers and students like to talk about the troublemakers. Its a good school, and I've rarely seen any fights or bullying. Ever school has its drinkers and smokers so don't let a few bad kids define a whole school. The staff is nice, the kids are polite and funny, and the education is very good as well.

My son attended this school in its Zoned program (now attending NYU), and this school is just an average school--nothing too spectacular, yet it is not as terrible as some other schools. The only problem I have with this school is the large amount of rowdy, disorderly students, most of which infiltrate the nearby subway station. Also, a lot of students from this school smoke. There are some teachers who really care about your student and will make an effort to contact you; however there are some that just don't care.

I transferred from New Utrecht to Murrow. I felt so uncomfortable in Murrow that I had to come back to Utrecht. I realized that I loved it. New Utrecht High School became like a family to me. I feel so comfortable there. The guidance counselors are very caring, they will always be there to guide you through. Teachers and students in Utrecht are awesome. It was the best experience in my life. I actually had fun in school. Time was passing so fast there.I wish I can go back to being a freshman because my year in Utrecht is going to end soon. Im going to truly miss Utrecht. I LOVE NEW UTRECHT!<3

I graduated not even a week ago and I'm missing NUHS already. All of my teachers were extremely helpful and if you do your work, you get what you deserve. The deans don't allow electronics because they're disruptive in class. I actually agree with the policy because I've had my classes disrupted before by ringtones and loud music from headphones. When you really just want to learn and graduate, you'll find that you won't appreciate the disruptions. As for the hats and other stuff, it's most likely related to gang activity and they just want to avoid conflict. Think about it: would you rather take off your hat or have a gang war in the middle of your school day? As for the teachers and staff, they're just too great. You can't expect all of them to care but if you do, they definitely will. A billion stars.

I'm totally agree with you! I'm a senior at new Utrecht High School too. Yeah, it is really rare that you'll find a good teacher! But most of my teachers were good. Fortunately!!! As for for deans, it is really like in jail! You can't do anything there: no cell phones, no hats, no mp3 players or iPods, etc. But it's a big school and you can find a lot of friends of all nationalities! I wouldn't say to change school if you have a chance. No! Just get used to it! So, yeah! Just go to this school and you'll see what am I talking about!

I am a senior at this school and I am glad to say that I will never see New Utrecht again. If your lucky, you'll get a teacher that actually cares about your school work. Most teachers just gave up and don't care if you even come to school. And the rest of the staff, such as the deans and the security officers, make New Utrecht like a jail. If you have a choice, choose another school to go to.

I am the grandparent of a sophmore student and extremely interested in following her progress in school. The only reason I rate NUHS with four stars is because it's facilities are old. But, make no mistake in spite of the shortcomiongs of the facilites my granddaughter has the benefit of a network of caring teachers and admistrators that move mountains for you. For those that need it there is tutoring in every subject all day long and a diverse sports program. At New Utrecht HS, if your child is not reaching his/her potential it is because they're not really trying.

My daughter is in junior year in the honors program. Coming out of MS 201, with an above 90 average she could have gone to Midwood but she chose New utrecht because she can walk there in 10 minutes, it has a swimming pool, and the honors program is considered to be good. She has loved her time there. She has found many freinds from diverse backgrounds, she has already completed 8 regents and 2 AP courses and taken her SAT. We all feel that she will be well-prepared for college. Incidentally, earlier this year, she lost her grandmother and missed some school and her teachers were very understanding and helpful.

The school is great and safe and most people there are nice and helpfull but the school needs to be much more cleaner because i see roches, spilled drinks, and dirt all around the shool. also the school needs to be repainted because the paint they have now is dirty, old, and unwelcomeing. Most of the peole are really great and in the outside looks like a good school but wen u go in it dont really seem like it but it really is a great school. they got many programs, i should know i go there, and although this is my first year there i already love it.

My son was accepted to Brooklyn Tech but wanted a short commute. So we sent him to New Utrecht. He has never been happier and has done very well so far. He is in his second year and we are very happy with his progress. The school environment is very supportive as are his classmates and they are all very wonderful young adults and I will add they are not all from the honors program. They have a team spirit I have never seen before. We love New Utrecht thank goodness it is our zoned school I will be sending my other 2 children there without a doubt.

I will soon be a junior at NUHS. At first, I thought it would be a problem for me to go there. I bring home 85+% tests to show my parents. I've passed all of my regents. I don't fight. I don't drink/smoke. The school is nothing like what I had thought it would be. It's safe, clean, and fun. The students here are friendly and the teachers are very encouraging. I stay involved in extracurricular activities. New Utrecht has taught me so much, and I'm looking forward to the next two school years.

I am a teacher at New Utrecht High School. It is a very well-run school with good administration. People in my department are very kind and caring with the students. There are many other good people at the school too. I have met very few people that I don't like. Academically we are slightly above average for New York City and are viewed as a great alternative to many neighborhood high schools that have problems. Our school is clean and has quiet, safe hallways. The population is ethnically diverse. We have a sports medicine program which attracts students. Although Benson Hurst is not 100% crime free, I always feel safe there.

From what I have seen this is not a good school my daughter has been enrolled for two years she hates it there she doesn't want to get up and go to school because she doesn't like it there. There are too many children in one classroom. I have had conversations with teachers and other officials from the school one teacher said I told them that I was taking my daughter out of school and her guidance counselor told me that she will not bend over backwards for my child. I highly recommend not to send your child there because they will be unhappy and want to quit school.
