Stuy is a place where ambitious, spirited kids of different personalities, interests, socioeconomic statuses, and ethnic backgrounds commute from all over the city to work, learn, and grow as people. As cheesy as this sounds, no matter who you are, you will, for the most part, find an accepting environment that values your individuality. The curriculums of the plethora of courses offered at the school have been well designed to challenge even the brightest students, and even the standard-level required courses are taught at levels far above those of most schools. On the other hand, I agree with the previous review of Stuyvesant calling it a "brutal factory school". Our averages are almost solely based off of difficult tests that are often multiple choice. Even on the tests that are not multiple choice, no free points are given. If you don't know or understand the material very well, you WILL fail. Despite being a specialized high school, the school does focus on city standards and has strict rules and requirements based on this. You will risk some of your well-being if you go to Stuy, but almost everyone says it is worth it.

My school MCJHS is the best school. It is very small but but staffs are very dedicated. Most teachers are very much involved in state test preparation. Some of the teachers are extremely good, they encourage student to do excellent in their study.

Stuy has many brilliant brilliant kids. It is not competitive because the kids are mean - they aren't. It is competitive because the top colleges will only make a few offers and so everyone works hard to get to the top. This has led to a wide-spread culture of cheating. Also, it is too bad that many of the teachers aren't as smart as the kids. Some are great, but many are terrible teachers. The admin knows but can't get rid of them. My son had some horrible teachers for important science courses. Also, the school is so large, it is very hard to get issues addressed by the admin. If your kid never needs extra help, then it is all good. But if you need to work with the admin on anything - forget about it.

What I think others should know: There is a reason for this prestige. Kids aren't necessarily "geniuses" but they are hardworking. There's around 1 or 2 hours of homework everyday, but with computer science, it's more (coding takes time). On top of that is studying. What do I like: You can learn anything here. Everything is offered. Everyone in Stuy is really nice and has good morals. You learn what hard work is and determination is. It pushes you to your ultimate self. Improvement: Some downsides are that to achieve a 90 at Stuy requires you to study until 12am (for the most part). It's not an easy school. Everyone remains depressed and sleep deprived due to pressure to study. Some homeworks do not help since only tests are counted towards your grades. It would make you feel stressed out, 85% of the time. AP's aren't weighted either. Overall: Stuy has changed me as a person. Even if it doesn't get you into Harvard (due to low grades administered), it gives you knowledge and ability to carry on through hardship. It's 4 years of pain, dull mental and physical soreness. But it's a pain that also can leave a beautiful scar.

Stuyvesant has been one of the best high schools in the country for many decades. More Nobel Prize winners have graduated from here than from all but a few colleges. After graduating I went to Cornell and Columbia; Stuyvesant was more intellectually challenging than either university. Every student here would likely have been at or near the top of the class at their local high school; here most will be average or below. If you view these facts as an opportunity to grow with the best and test your tue limits, welcome. If this doesn't appeal to you, that's fine; you may also reach your potential elsewhere. You just may have to do it more on your own, with less support from your school community.

When I was in 8th grade last year, my heart was completely set on Stuy, and my mother told me, if you're not willing to do well in school, there's no point. And there really isn't: this school is meant only for people who have the proper work ethic and are actually willing to put their heart and soul into their work. But I guess that's a good thing, because then you're surrounded by all these people who are so hard working and they've got their mind set on such a fixed goal, you've gotta admire their determination. That kind of perseverance is so amazing and at Stuy, even if you don't want to, you're forced to try your best. This school is simply amazing!

As a parent of a Senior student, I find the lack of commitment from the teachers at Stuy extremely disappointing. The teachers had the audacity to deny a student a teachers recommendation. I am hoping and praying my child gets into a college of her choice ,as she was already denied the ED opportunity, thanks to the inability to get a 2 nd teachers rec.And to make matters worse, when I reached out to the parent teacher coordinator for help, it made matters even worse.Now my child is upset that I reached out to her school for help and fears retaliation.A word of advice to other HS Students parents- Do your own preparation to get your child into college. Don't expect a miracle from the staff and or Administration.They have 3 guidance counselors for 843 students. What can you expect from these so called guidance counselors when they are themselves sinking?I so want this school year to be over and see my child back to the land of norm and decency and courtesy, back to being a regular teenager, not looking like the world is weighing her down.

What I've learned from my experience is that Stuyvesant isn't for everyone. On paper, it sounds amazing, but the experience can really make or break you. Some kids are tough, are great at studying until 4:00am every day. For some, it's a great school. It's got a lot to offer and and is amazing academically. I feel that students don't get to have a good high school experience going here. If cramming is your thing, than Stuy is the place for you, it will not let you rest or get a minute of free time. You'll get into a great college and learn tons. Personally, I think that Bronx High School of Science is a better all around option, astounding academics, sports, opportunities, community and will lead to a better high school experience. Stuyvesant is a great, great high school, but if you don't know what to expect, you'll be surprised.

We heard warnings from other parents whose kids had terrible experiences at Stuy, but we didn't listen and thought our son would do just fine. Sadly, he had a terrible four years and I wish we'd listened more carefully to what those other parents told us. Stuy is a brutal factory school. If your child is a superstar with a thick skin and tons of self-confidence, she'll probably be fine and go to Harvard. If your child has moments of insecurity or is not prepared to study 12 hours per day, you may well have problems coming your way. And don't expect the administration to listen when you wonder why your child is extremely stressed and depressed. They think that's normal for teenagers because that's how the majority of their students are. I know I sound bitter, but you can't truly believe it until it happens to you. No wonder stress and depression are constant topics for the PTA. If you have the opportunity, make another choice. Your child will thank you

Stuyvesant High School is one example that provides superior education. The benefit of having a magnet school in a school district enriches communities. I firmly believe that Stuyvesant High School has given intellectually gifted children the opportunity to succeed and thrive in this competitive environment.

Stuyvesant was easily the best thing that ever happened to me. I cannot thank my parents enough for the opportunity, since I got to meet such a diverse set of people- that doesn't ring true on the surface given the demographic breakdown- but hopefully we're interacting with different groups of people and being exposed to different mindsets, backgrounds, and lifestyles- the true kernel of diversity. Definitely try to go here- I met some very passionate, well-read teachers here who inspired me when they found a strength, and helped me with my weaknesses. And for the size of the student body, I found a surprising deal of close-knit camaraderie. Fantastic. And now in college, which is completely different, I'm happy I chose a public magnet in the city as opposed to a private school which also provides great education but nurtures the kind of environment I'm enjoying in college now regardless. It's definitely distinctive- don't miss out. - alumnus

DO NOT I repeat DO NOT go here or send your kids here unless they are legitimately smart. They are just going to get lost in a sea of above average kids. A few exceptional students will shine and move on the Ivy League schools but you are screwing yourself socially by going here. Your teenage years are very important and there are other schools where you will have room to develop socially in a normal manner while also challenging yourself educationally. Every good school has some great teachers, half of Stuy's teachers are regular teachers, nothing really special. Save yourself the long commute and stress...unless a "prestigious" name on your diploma is the meaning you look for in life

This is more than a high school -- this is a passionate community of give-your-all, strive-for-excellence students, teachers, administrators and parents, who together have locked arms in a single vision that sets this school above any other we'd looked at. The willingness of teachers to give of their own time to nurture any student who needs additional insights; the Junior and Senior students who mentor the Freshman and Sophomore students with dedication; the parents who donate time and resources for the betterment of all -- these have made us proud to say with conviction that Stuyvesant is the best school anywhere. When the City's budget was cut, hurling the future of our beloved teams into an unknown future, it was the parents, administration and teachers who rushed to the forefront in order to find other solutions. Reaching out to Alumni, fundraising spearheaded by parents, willingness of teachers to work extra time without pay: all these actions highlight just a small amount of the dedication and devotion shown by all out of sheer love for this school. In an atmosphere where at times it seems as though many have settled for a dumbing-down of our educational system, this school is daily proof that the opposite viewpoint is alive and thriving. It's a challenge, and often hard, but well worth it. A student who graduates from Stuyvesant can be proud that they have flourished and grown and have found their own viewpoint by learning the most excellent skills at the best school in the country.

Why do I love Stuyvesant for my child? Let me count the ways: first of all, all admitted students get the red carpet treatment from the "big sibs" (a huge student club devoted to helping 9th graders adjust to high school) when they walk through the door as admitted students for their first orientation. I'm not kidding, they line the doorways and applaud every new student and parent with cheers of, "You did it! Welcome! Hooray for you! Congratulations!" No kidding. That happens in the spring upon admission. In the late summer, there is an all day "Camp Stuy", where the students are giving organizational and studying tips, along with all the logistical information they need to navigate their schedules, and the hallways. By the time he attended his first class, my son was completely raring to go, and ready to dig into high school studies. In his classes, my son finds his classmates to be friendly and enthusiastic students. The distinguished faculty are excellent educators, and great classroom managers. The school has terrific technology to keep track of attendance, report cards, reporting, tests. It keeps students on their toes and parents always know what's going on at school with a click of a button. The principal is a strong leader who cares about every student. The state-of-the-art facility is well kept. The curriculum is challenging and varied. Opportunities to do advanced resesarch/writing in every academic subject abound. Extra help for struggling students is easily accessed from peer tutoring to after-school time with teachers. There's a wide variety of performing and visual arts, sports, clubs and enrichment programs, peer mentorship, engaged parents. The strong college guidance program starts the minute you walk into the door, and ramps up by the end of 10th grade. My son was not a diligent student in middle school, but now he comes home every day eager to study and do piles of homework, because, "my teachers are smart and the work is really, really challenging and interesting." and "that's what everyone does at Stuy." The high standards of the school inspire him. If you have a child who thrives on learning, and would benefit from having like-minded peers, this is the place for her or him.

I am graduate of Stuyvesant High School, Class of 1975. It is the finest public academic high school in the United States, specializing in the sciences and mathematics but with a very strong humanities and performing arts curriculum as well. It is also at the forefront of emerging technologies. However, this school is not for every gifted and talented student. The courses are demanding and the work is hard. Unless you live in Lower Manhattan, the commute is quite long. I recommend visiting the school and asking plenty of questions. It may be very possible that Stuyvesant is not the school for you. There is nothing wrong with that. However, if you like what you see and hear, which means speaking and listening, then by all means go for it.

The extracurricular SING is amazing, there is an opportunity for students to write and direct one act plays,and perform in many different kinds of musical venues. The Spectator is a student run newspaper that is truly student run - perhaps even better than many college newspapers. Overall, Stuy provides for many student interests as well as supporting excellent academics.

Everything at Stuy is centered on supporting the city's top students achieve their best. There are the renowned academics with extensive AP offerings, well equipped labs, and Intel Contest opportunities; but there are also orchestras and a dizzying array of extra-curricular clubs and sports to enrich student life -- all housed in a modern facility with a swimming pool and river view. And it's public! A shining example of what can be achieved in public education. What's not to love?

SUCH a unique learning experience. Prepared me for college while many of my peers were like, 'woaahh workload' The students are so intelligent, involved, and just amazing in every way. Considering we're a public school that provides a better education than many elite prep schools, we need the funding to help level the playing field.

Stuyvesant is truly a great high school. There is a real sense of community throughout the school, despite its largeness. Academics are top-notch. Students are engaged in their studies and are actively involved in classroom discussions. Classwork and homework are challenging and encourage each student to realize his/her potential. The variety of courses given in each subject area help students decide which course of study is best for them. The parent coordinator is very involved in all aspects of the school, gives great advice and is always available to help. Stuyvesant is a wonderful learning experience that prepares our students for college and other challenges they may face in their future.

A hothouse for hard-working, motivated students who thrive on challenges. A school where it's cool to be brainy and the superstars are top students. Lots of great teachers. Cons: badly overcrowded, large class sizes, students obsess about grades and scores, culture of cheating, admission solely by one test, few black students make it in indicative of chronic academic disadvantage over years. To succeed in this highly competitive environment, students must be self-motivated, disciplined and well-organized. Great preparation for competitive colleges!

This is the best school ever. Amazing school that literally puts the college experience into a high school setting. Students here do not want to leave the school at all and are found around the clock on campus. With an amazing amount of extracurriculars, the community is tightly knit. The academics are top notch since it's a specialized high school. The teachers are passionate about their work; they love the subjects that they teach. They will go above and beyond the call of duty to help students in need. Classes provide an unique experience that resembles the experience one has in college classes. The students here love working and are competitive. Grades are amazingly high. SATs are considered laughable; a grade below 2000 is considered a flop. Quite a large percentage of the student body end up in big name schools like Harvard, MIT, Yale, and Brown to name a few. However, although we are some of the biggest 'nerds' of all time, we know how to party. Rarely does one see a senior student conga line in their school go around and greet all 10 floors of out school. Rarely does one see the innumerable events students host on their own time. And rarely does one see such an amazing principal: Stanley Teitel. He is not just a principal, but a friend that students adore.

Stuyvesant provides ample opportunities to grow through its extracurriculars; a community of teachers and administrators (particularly in the English and Social Studies departments) that care about the well-being and lives of students; and an environment in which students are surrounded by other intellectually-engaged students. Plus, the location means that there's always fun to be had!

Stuyvesant was an exceptional school far more advanced than most I've seen. With a multitude of class offerings from potery and robotics to multivariant calculus and human disease, I received an unparalleled education. The state of the art facility in Lower Manhattan also allowed for a miriad of after school possibilities, other than extracirriculars at school, such as exploration of Chinatown and Bowling Green, or just playing handball in Battery Park. With that being said, Stuyvesant H.S. was the greatest and no other can compare. STUY '06!

They bring the best of both worlds, with history and English departments as rich and successful as their science and math departments.

Best Public School in the city. I went from Bronx Science to here. At Bronx Science, everyone talks trash about Stuyvesant, but no at Stuyvesant really cared much of what anyone else thought of them. I guess when you're at the top, there's no reason to look down. The staff were all veritable experts in the classes they taught, especially for Advanced Placement courses, of which Stuyvesant had the highest number offered compared to any other public high school. The student body is also a lot more serious about education, but there's still a lot of fun to be had in and out of class.

This school has prepared me for life in so many ways that I would never have thought was possible in just four years. Stuyvesant was challenging, yes, but I definitely would not be the person I am today if I had not attended this high school. Here, I learned not only the knowledge that specialized schools teach, but to be a leader and learned how to build things with my own hands and watch my creations grow. My school has hindered me but it has also pushed me to my high school limits and expanded my horizons. My high school experience is one that I will never forget.

I owe a lot to Stuyvesant. At Stuy, I really matured a lot. I took classes with great teachers, studied with some of New York's best and brightest kids, gained leadership skills working with ARISTA (the Stuy chapter of the National Honor Society) and other service organizations, and became a better person in general. Although some regard Stuy as having a sink-or-swim attitude, I found this was really not the case. Stuy's support system is great and the guidance department was great. Teachers also took the extra steps to make sure their students learned, but had a good time doing it, including addressing personal issues. Although I am now a sophomore at Dartmouth where I am very happy to be at, I miss Stuyvesant and wish that I could have soaked in more of what it offered, despite being busy almost everyday with school work, extracurricular activities, and the like. If I were given the chance to have the Stuy experience all over again, I'd take it in a heartbeat. Really, I owe a lot to Stuy and just cannot thank the school enough.

Stuyvesant is supposedly a math and science school, but the English department is what really makes going there worth it. Each teacher has their own style and biases but they're all focused on helping you appreciate the material the same way that they do and letting the differences that eventually arise spark discussion, whether it's between students or the teacher and the class.

The extracurricular programs are the things that make Stuyvesant what it is. Sure, the academics are great, but without the afterschool programs, all the students would be going crazy.

Stuyvesant High School is the best. It has great teachers and great students. It's located in a very nice community, and right near the Hudson. Stuyvesant has the best opportunities for every career you can think of. It is truly the best high school!

Stuyvesant has a lot to offer as long as you reach for it. There are, of course, the many classes and APs offered but even more than that, but there are countless extracurricular activities one can find. The student body is packed with bright and talented students and it really is a privilege to attend such a school.

Stuyvesant High School is privileged, but that's because the students are all the more willing to go the extra mile for academics. They say that something is as good as it's weak link and the thing about Stuy, is that everyone is the best of NYC so there isn't a weak link among us.

You meet tons of nice people in Stuyvesant and it actually makes going to school fun. Commuting to Stuyvesant with a bunch of friends also adds to the list of things I look forward to during weekdays. This school's learning environment is also great and they offer a bunch of extracurriculars.

This is a statement I heard often, and it is true. What makes Stuyvesant so different from other schools is its students. Some of the teachers are absolutely amazing, others not so much. Students at Stuyvesant aren't afraid to be active in class and be involved. Many of them are extremely intelligent and gifted, and it was a blessing to be in that sort of environment. The administration, however, is not always understanding to student needs.

We are new to this school and everyone so far (from the students to the teachers to the parent coordinator to the Principal) has been extremely friendly and helpful. The building has state of the art facilities and the academic expectations are high. I am also impressed that the arts and sports are considered an important part of each child's education.

Going to Stuyvesant was the best decision I ever made. The students are some of the brightest people I have ever meet and the classes I took at Stuy were more rigorous than those I took at my Ivy League university. Those four years were incredibly intense, challenging, and rewarding, and truly shaped who I am today. I would not trade them for anything.

I'm an alumni of Stuy, and I still find that my 4 years there have really shaped who I am today. It is not just a school of intelligent, fun, good humored classmates, but it has been inspirational and encouraging of different experiences and viewpoints. Going to Stuy is one decision in my life I would never wish to take back.

AMAZING!! If your child is bright and lucky enough to get in, don't think twice about it. This place is academically superior and offers so much. My child is a senior and I do not see the competitiveness as a problem. My child's friends don't even discuss SAT scores or averages. Stuy has made my child well-rounded and accepting of all. I wish every child could be given the gift of a Stuyvesant education.

Wonderful. period. My son attends this school after he tranferred from an NYC boys' school so he could focus more on the sceinces and technology. This school is amazing. The SATs are higher then that of his former boys' school and my young daughter's girls' school. Stuyvesent has great extracurriculars and, for a sciences school, has an exceptional music & drama program. Athletics are not close to being strong except the school's high academic standards make up fore that. My only complain is the classes are large ranging from 30 to 35, whereas my son's former school had 12 students to a class---it's a little struggle except all good since the nationally high SAT average score at Stuyvesent shows that the large classes don't really have an effect at all. Shows that some public education is top-tier, and this is comming from a NYC private girls' school graduate.

Great school with many talented and smart kids. Drawback is that the school is extremely competitive. Parental involvement is limited as many parents are immigrants and don't speak English. This is not a huge problem as the students are pretty self-motivated and self-sufficient.

Academics are top notch and students are selected via the specialized school placement test. This institution is truly a testament to the American dream. Electives are numerous in all areas. Standard English courses were a little weak on reading content as might be expected for a math/science school, but not 'bad' by any means. Starting new extracurriculars was possible, but I had to strongly motivate my club's co-founders to cut through the red tape for funding. At least everyone's eager to put the money to good use, which is nice. Enrollment in AP courses is competitive, and college admissions are made more difficult by being alongside such a high achieving clientele. Overall, a great experience, but parental support is necessary to help your child cope with the extremely rigorous curriculum.

The academics are unsurpassed at Stuyvesant High School. The facilities are newer than most, a plethora of extracurriculars are available, and there is a good cross-section of students from all walks of life with one thing in common: intelligence. Students are required to take an entrance exam for admission to this public school, where many forgo lunch periods in order to fit addtional science or music classes into their schedules. There is a high level of parent involvement, and the PTA is a driving force within the school.

Something that may not be clear about Stuyvesant or any of the NYC Sci-Hi schools is that these schools represent the best gathering of intelligent teenagers who could or would not attend private school. There are excellent teachers in all, especially Stuyvesant, but ultimately it's not the teachers or the amenities of these schools that make them such great places. It's the kids themselves, rubbing shoulders, shedding their big-fish-small-pond mindsets from whatever other public school they came from. In some sense, these schools sit on their laurels because the hard part's already been instilled in the students. They're nearly all competitive, either naturally so or bullied into it by their parents, or their natural intelligence lets them glide through. These schools are ideal havens of learning, but they're much harder for the undisciplined. Parents are obliged to push your kids if they've had too easy of a time until now.

Stuyvesant provides an excellent environment for learning, with a range of available resources unlike any other NYC public school. Students interested in the humanities shouldn't be turned off by Stuy's math and science profile, as the school has an extensive array of english, art and social studies classes and electives. The extracurricular offerings are unbelievable, ranging from a robotics club to literary magazines to over 30 sports teams. Parental involvement is good and the Parents' Association is very helpful in raising money for the school. Needless to say, students at this school are very well prepared for college.

Stuyvesant High School is an incredible school, not only academically, but socially as well. There is great diversity in the student body, and a healthy competitive spirit that pervades the school and pushes all students to excel. Graduates go on to excellent colleges and universities. I have heard that students from Stuyvesant are often deemed by college admissions offices as on par with those from some of the nation's most elite private schools.

The breadth of classes is extensive at this competitive high school. A full complement of music, drama, and sports are available for participation by the students, as well as a number of student clubs. The quality of the students makes the difference at this school, as they tend to be a highly motivated group. Kids who are not as motivated (regardless of how intelligent) will likely not do well at Stuy. The approach is more like 'sink or swim' than anything else. The parents association is fairly active, and most parents seem involved in their child's educational progress.

Stuyvesant High School may well be the best public high school in the country. With an intensely competitive admissions process that accepts around 5% of the 15,000 students who take the specialized high school exam each year, the creme de la creme of NYC's public school attend Stuyvesant. Students are described as hard working, keenly competitive, and constantly push themselves to outshine their peers. This makes for a very intense academic environment, but as an alumna, I don't know a single member of my graduating class who isn't performance-oriented and looking to achieve.
