I love it because i think it has the best academic program. and is vert diverse
This school doesn't indoctrinate- it educates. It teaches without forcing.
This is one of the few high schools that give you the opportunity to graduate with not only a high school diploma but also an A.A degree. Did I mention that Obama used our school as an in example in his speech. 'We should also explore innovative approaches being pursued here in NewYork City; innovations like Bard High School Early College and Medgar Evers College Preparatory School that are challenging students to complete high school and earn a free associate's degree or college credit in just four years.' You meet such a diverse group of people here and the experience last for a lifetime. This is truly my second home. Where would I be without my precious Bard! After graduating it would be nearly impossible for each and every student not to go far.
Bard is amazing because it treats us like mature young adults. It is a non-traditional high school with a great sense of community. With round table, seminar-style discussions and great professors, BHSEC is one of the most unique schools out there.
It is a high school where people who love learning can learn about what they want to, and learn things they never expected to from each other. It approximates a college not only in the abstract or formalized sense of offering a college 'quality education' but in the excitement and curiosity of its students--by far its most important asset.
Our daughter graduated from Bard this past spring. Bard doesn't 'teach to the test.' It nurtures intellectual curiosity and launches life long learners. What a gift!
No other school was able to address our daughter's yearning for learning.
I'm a proud parent of a recently graduate student of Bard. This school challenged my son to bring out the best of him. It equipped him with a well rounded education. I'm very thankful to the entire teaching staff for their professionalism and excellent dedication. Today, he is attending Yale University.
Bard is truly an amazing school. It is so different than any other school, and thats the best part. The people there are tremendous and very dedicated to what they do; whether it is a teacher or a student. I, too, feel like applying to this school was the best thing I have done in a while...
I transferred into BHSEC in the tenth grade, and it's the best thing I've ever done to date. This is an incredible school. Everything about it is amazing (well, except for the facilities...): the teachers (2 out of 3 full-time faculty have doctorate degrees!), who go out of their way to help students; the students, who are eager and willing to learn; and the college transfer office, which works tirelessly to ensure we all get into top-notch colleges and universities. The entire BHSEC experience is amazing. Being able to choose all of my classes starting junior year, getting to take interesting and off-beat (but intellectually stimulating) courses, learning how to become a thorough analyst of the world around me--it's the most incredible institution in the world. It's also amazingly diverse, and it's great to be in a classroom with people who equally represent different races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds.
I worked in their briefly. It is a sweet school for a teacher or a student. If all public schools could be like Bard.
Bard is amazing. The teachers work really hard and so even the students are expected to work hard. Though only the hard working can survive here. I love Bard sooooo much!!!!
