It is a new specialized high school with a very small teacher to student ratio so everyone knows everyone else, all the teachers are amazing and none of the students are lame.
HSMSE is a place where there are no cliques. The diversity lies not only in statistics, but in actual, everyday interactions. The teachers are passionate about their subject matter. Teaching is a second career for many of the staff, so they are sure that this is what they want to do. They are very willing to talk beyond what they teach after class. Despite the name of the school, the humanities is held in high regard. The advanced classes helped immensely during my freshman year at MIT.
MSE is a small friendly school that provides students with the support they need to reach their goals.
HSMSE is not what i expected its even better! Its making my idea of a scary high school experience into a very memorable one. Its easy & fun to make new friends & become family with them as well as the teachers while learning and preparing yoursel ffor the college experience in the best way possible.
I loved the teachers and the atmosphere at MSE....the curriculum really prepares you for what college is like. MSE is a High School where learning is cool. I am really happy that i attended HSMSE.
High School for Math, Science, and Engineering is a school that provides an excellent education. The school prepares students for science careers through the Mount Sinai program. If you are interested in engineering then the school provides you with courses developed by Project Lead the Way.The math courses are required to be completed and there are many math courses to take. The school gives the experience of a college campus and is associated with City college of New York.There are many advantages in attending the High School for Math, Science, and Engineering.
theres a small hands on environment andd the cultural differences add flavor to the student body
The High School for Math Science and Engineering at CCNY is an amazing school. Its incredibly diverse with people from all over the world and with so many different types of personalities. Its also very studious and provides a good learning environment.
My school has the friendliest atmosphere, from both students and teachers.
It's probably got one of the best communities in the state! Everyone is everyone else's friend. The smallness of the school is what makes it so great.
The classes are challenging and I get home exhausted but there's a lot of room for creativity and I can't think of anything wrong with the school; the different departments are all strong and balanced. Even though it's a 'Math Science and Engineering' school, the English and foreign language and social studies classes are challenging and fun and rigorous! The teachers are all helpful and approachable. No one can rightfully feel left out or scrutinized (students have a cozy relationship for the most part). It's a sad thing, to have to leave in a year!
It is a school full of different personalities. Most would expect that to be a bad thing, but the school nurtures all types. Anyone can find a place to belong here. It's all about doing well and finding who you are at the same time. I love HSMSE.
HSMSE has an excellent group of teachers who are dedicated to ensuring student success, all of whom have worked in the field that they teach. Even though the school is centered around 'math, science, and engineering' the english and history departments are just as great. the school is small, which provides an intimate environment where all the students for the most part get along. all 440 of them. The school is a place where you can be yourself, be academically challenged , and enjoy yourself!
HSMSE is a school different than a regular high school, with a close, small community, dedicated and excellent teachers, and situated on a college campus with access to its facilities
This is the best school if you really are ambitious and want to be successful. The teachers and staff have come from a variety of excellent schools. Some teachers are not only educators but are engineers architects and mathematicians. All the kids and teachers know each other and everyone blends in.
It prepares you for a lot of things and it's small so everyone knows one another.
It's a small school. All the students know each other, and the teachers know the students on a personal level, not like in bigger school where they barely remember your name. It gives the school a feeling of welcome-ness.
I love HSMSE ; the small class sizes allow for class discussions often and eveything is so orderly and its easy to learn.
It's not a very large school so the classes are smaller, and the teachers are very nice and helpful
HSMSE @ CCNY is such a good school. Even though its small, there's a lot of different kinds of people there. All the teachers are really fun and friendly and are always there for you if you need extra help
