My school really isn't bad at all. Yeah sometimes they can be too strict for the littlest f things but the falcatiy is there whenever you need them. We all have a great relationship with them. They may get on our nerves at times, but we're a family. This school is what made me realize what i want to be when I graduate, it also shows me that as long as I try as hard as possible... I will never fail. It also introduced me to my first and last love. I love my school.

I feel like Brooklyn Prep is an underprivileged school and it's not fair. On an everyday bases I run into peers with amazing potential. This school is not 2/10. We just lack resources and options. Imagine if every high school had the things Brooklyn Tech has. And we wonder why we are seeing no progress. The education system is not fair nor equal. This must change. The teachers at Brooklyn Prep are phenomenal and care about our education and preparing us for college. Each year the students get worse and worse. I was even beginning to lose eagerness in showing up but I'm not like the rest, I persevere. Back to my point, we are a small school and we need more. Stop ignoring us NY! We are here and we exercise our habits of mind and work! Brooklyn Prep is underrated. But we are a family, and together we will strive to become a better school. We are on the right track, we just need time and more to work with. Everyone deserves a quality education that they are proud of.
