My daughter graduated from Bard High School Early College and loved her time there. It's just a really great academic environment that prepares kids to do anything they can dream of.
All three of my kids have attended BHSEC and challenged each year to develop critical thinking and their own goals that extend beyond grades. BHSEC is not an easy school, but it is an excellent one.
BHSEC is the BEST school I've ever attended. The teachers really know what they're doing and I actually learn so much everyday.
Everything. the teachers are great, the kids are great, and the environment is great.
The teachers are amazing and the work is great. We get two years of college free.
I don't think I've ever met people as intelligent as I have at Bard. Everybody is so friendly and the atmosphere is great. The work is challenging and the curriculum is rigorous, but it prepares us for later work and we're taught so much in such a short amount of time. By the time I leave, I would expect to have learned a great deal.
I found great people, great teachers and great academics. I fit in and it seems as if almost anyone could.
I love BHSEC because it offers a rigorous education in a non-competetive setting. The administration is dedicated to offering innovative learning opportunities, and to keeping class size small.
Bard is the best school ever! Everyone is so nice, the teachers are really helpful and personal, and because the cafeteria food is so disgusting just like any other school, we have a beautiful field we can go eat on. Also the school is really small so it allows you to get to know practically everyone in the building. Each grade has intertwining friendships, no grade is exclusive, everyone is nice to one another. I love bard so much and am thankful Millenium and Beacon did not accept me so I could come here to this much smarter and nicer school.
Everyone gets along. There are no big problems. The teachers are all fantastic and friendly. You come out with an associate's degree in the arts.
I have a junior/first year and a freshman at Bard. They both are happy with their friends, teachers, and coursework. My freshman is part of the soccer team which is very good and my 1st year is looking for a college like her HS because she loves it so much.
The early college program prepares students for the transitioning period to college and beyond. As a former student I've gained invaluable wisdom and knowledge from Bard High School Early College.
I love BHSEC because it has got some of the best teachers that actually care for the students and know how to teach well.
This school is filled with intelligent, caring teachers who know who your child is, and are always ready with compassion and after school tutoring when needed. It's a very demanding place academically, but they nurture and assist every step of the way. It's a unique public school in NYC in so many ways.
BHSEC is a great school because it treats its student like adults instead of like children. It gives us the freedom to take what courses we want, as well as start our own clubs, and pursue something that interests you. Bard is also populated by some of the friendliest people around.
The Diversity, people from all walks of life go to Bard High School. Its an excellent example of one of New York's best traits.
Starting with the obvious, BHSEC gives exceptionally bright students a chance that they may not have had otherwise: a two year college degree. Some families simply cannot afford to send their child off to school, and this really lifts a burden off of the parents and students shoulders. Even if a student doesn't start college in his or her third year, it gives the student an opportunity to double major. The atmosphere is unlike that of any other school. Kids of all different backgrounds, religious, national origins, and sexual orientations can immediately look past their differences or even disregard them alltogether.
Bard High School Early College has a lot of options, really interesting teachers, and each student is challenged individually.
