BHSEC has the most nurturing community. I have learned and grown so much here; the teachers are top notch and the students are one-of-a-kind. I love the challenging work, but also appreciate the creative atmosphere. I can be intellectual around other serious thinkers without a cut-throat attitude. There is no place like BHSEC--it's a home as much as it is an absolutely fantastic school.
Because it gives the young people to challenge themselves in different fields, it brings the best out of them to achieve and study the best in assorted subjects. It helps these young smart eager students to complete credits with higher standards and push them ahead in their lives.
I love Bard High School Early College, because it is the only school that works on a low budget to provide an amazing open minded and analytical high school course AND college course. This school is only made up of dedicated teachers and provides the chance to for students to graduate with an ability to think deeply and work hard, as well as an associates degree.
We love Bard because it has the most intellectually stimulating environment!
Why do I love Bard High School Early College? Quite simply, because my son loves it there. He loves learning with other students who love to learn, in a diverse community where teachers are learning along with the students.
Bard High School teaches the students to think. It isn't easy to teach this very important trait. But Bard has excellent teachers who work extremely hard and small class sizes so the teachers can really know their students. The students are a diverse group but they all seem to be glad to rise to the challenge of learning in this way.
Motivated kids, great teachers, challenging work, small classes. It doesn't get better than this.
The students are bright, ambitious and committed to making their world and their school better.
It is simply amazing. BHSEC provides a mature and advanced envoirnment where learning becomes a adventure and not a chore. It is quite challenging and not built for everyone BUT those who are willing to make the sacrifices will realize it is all worth it at the end. The teachers, staff, admin and creators believe in you. They push you and pace you so that you believe in yourself. There were many times I wanted to give up , transfer to another High School and have a normal life with easy earned A grades. They never gave up on me and I am forever in debt to them for that. I was part of the first full graduating class of BHSEC - Class 2005 - and that is an honor I will wear proud forever.
It's one of the best schools in the country right now.. Quality of professors, college courses, seminar style classes really challenge students.. When students graduate this High School & transfer directly into 2nd or 3rd yr of college, they're ready, whatever college that is! Great mix in school, families are represented by all ethnic & income levels. Can't say enough, my favorite High Schooll in New York City!
Aside from sparking the Early College movement and presenting its students with unprecedented educational opportunities, Bard High School Early College continues to play a critical role in exposing all of its participants--students as well as teachers and staff--to new ways of thinking by continually fostering its culture of knowledge and understanding. Besides affording its students the option of graduating from college in two years as opposed to the traditional four, BHSEC plays a critical role in developing the character of young men and women just as it has done for me. -BHSEC '06
BHSEC has some of the best teachers in the country, not only because of their personal accomplishments but the immense impact they have on their students. You move on to other colleges only to wish your old professors could come and take over your classes. I had a hard time there but even so I feel like I learned so much more than I would have anywhere else. I'm a BHSEC Alumni and I love BHSEC.
BHSEC teaches students to dig beneath the surface and to truly grasp the essence of the topic at hand. Books you read as a middle school student, (or, in the case of transfer students, in another high school) suddenly have a deeper and more significant meaning and far more dimension. Classroom discussions are carried out of class and into the lives of students. Never before have I been surrounded by a community of teachers and peers with such intelligence and open mindedness, and yet Bard still presents a laid back an liberal environment in which teachers can be and are your friends.
There is no place like Bard where you can read and discuss like a real independent thinking. If you haven't tried it, you don't know what I'm talking about.
Bard is a wonderful school with a great college program! The students are very intelligent and are eager to learn.
I am very proud to have been a part of BHSEC. Bard is such a welcoming school to all individuals. Learning is not simply done in the classrooms but the dedicated students apply their knowledge outside.
BHSEC's diverse student body is just another attribute to its greatness!
We get to take college classes and earn an associates degree. I have read and analyzed texts at a college level and I am confident that I will be very well prepared for college.
BHSEC is a challenging and supportive learning environmnet in which students are pushed to achieve their potentials and engage in an open free atmosphere.
