Its a shame this school has gone down this dreaded path. The reputation of the school has gone down the drain.Teachers are just as immature as the students, with a few exceptions.I decided to leave bayard my senior year.I wasn't receiving the help i needed to properly enter college.I am well off now.

My daughter is in the Math & Science program at Bayard Rustin and it is a great program. Is a shame that this school will be closing next year. My daughter visited a couple of colleges on school trips.

i am a student and i have learned so much in this school. Even though we have a bad rep and some problems, there are teacheres here that are so dedicated they wake you up for school. Take persona; time off to help you and form study groups and will do anything in their power to watch there kids do there best. im happy to attend this school because there is good things being offered and we are the underdogs so we have to work twice as hard witch is not a problem with me

I am a teacher at Bayard Rustin and I could not be happier being at this school. The students are amazing and my colleagues (not all but many) are so invested in the students and their success.

My daughter goes to Bayard Rustin Ed. Complex. She is in the International School of Business and I could not be happier! She is in the Virtual Enterprise program and has had an Apple internship and plenty of college visits. She has done so great at this school.

School is unorganized. Staff is not allowed to enter payroll office, copies are not available and emphasis is placed on graduating seniors while contact between administrators and new and promising students is limited.

I learned from a few teachers in this school - the ones that are truly dedicated to their jobs and are usually available after school hours. But aside from them, a lot of the teachers are difficult to learn from and have to act like babysitters more often than not, because many of the students are out of control. They refuse to cooperate (i.e. using electronics in class, sleeping, talking incessantly, etc. ), and some of the teachers can't handle it without cutting into more than half of class time. Violence is another problem - fighting occurs fairly often, sometimes twice in the same day. However, teachers do seem to try their best in keeping the violence at bay. Overall, this school is not good, and if I had known how tiresome it was I wouldn't have chosen to attend.

There is a lack of communication between parent and leadership (principal, directors, etc.). What is needed is more leadership and guidance support for students. Lost math and science teachers in recent years. Support from parents is low. Availablity of teachers after their (contractual hours) is limited for students and parents. If parents need to meet with teachers or staff, a parent has to take time away from work to meet with staff. One curriculum fits all is ridiculous. To place the blame on teachers for students' failure does not make sense. The school must become a real college prepartory school. It is not about the numbers. Give our children what they need so they do not struggle the first year of college.

This is a somewhat ok school. Its overcrowded and there are kids who don't care about learning. The parents should get involved more.

I feel that this schools needs better teachers becuase few wants to come to work just for a paycheck but besides that I feel that Humanities is the safest high school in the city and it also have alot of programs, cubs, teams and etc.

Terrible School, Violence every other day. Teachers don't really care for the students, the principal stays in the office all of the time. Kids rule the school. Also the school is over crowded.

This school offers a lot of extracurricular activities and college courses. However, the school environment isn't the greatest for a student to mature.
