As a soon to be senior at Benjamin N. Cardozo High School, let me just say one thing...it is an excellent school to attend if you are prepared to being on your own. As a student at this over-crowded high school, the teacher to student ratio is immensely large. A student at Cardozo has to compete for individual attention from teachers, and well, if you aren't a good student chances are your teacher won't know unless you tell them. Now dont get me wrong, you can inquire tutoring but I feel as a student, it should not have to be inquired, a teacher should demand that a student attend tutoring, a teacher should make calls to the parents, and be able to have a conference among the student, parent, and teacher. A parent/student should not have to be the only one concerned about his/her grade, and I have found that happening a lot, in Cardozo. If you are a focused individual your grades will excell here at Cardozo, I mean I was a pretty okay student and my GPA was a 3.0. That is a 3.0 for a pretty much average student!!! Cardozo has EXCELLENT Extra-Curricular Activities, Bar-none. Here at Cardozo, we try to include everyone in every school activity, regardless of race, age, sex, etc. In conclusion, if you are prepared to be on your own, Cardozo is the High School for you.
