7/27/2012studentAt first you'd think that the teachers had no soul: how else would they be able to give out that much homework with a clear conscience? But honestly, you soon get used to the crushing workload, high grading standards, and ultra-competitive environment (check the lobby, folks. Bronx Science is not the place for people with low self-esteem) The students are brilliant, and that's why you end up enjoying the high school rather than hating it. Beyond that, it has a wide variety of clubs (so many options... so little time), great teachers, and a sterling reputation.
11/25/2011parentPerfect in every way! Highly supportive of parents and educating all of the college process. Wish I could turn back the hands of time and go here myself.
11/24/2011studentSimply the best high school in America. You can grow, prosper, and challenge yourself here for four years, in the setting of a comfortable environment. With a vigorous curriculum, Bronx Science allows you to choose what direction and choice of classes you want to take throughout your years spent here. Offers almost all AP courses, plus higher achieving courses that earn you college credits. You might not realize it in your freshman year, but this school provides you with the opportunity to be anything you want to be. Politician, doctor, chemists, physicist, historian, businessman, musician; you name it - and it's very much attainable. ** P.S. Even a Specialized High School like Bronx Science provides individual student-teacher attention, despite the many false allegations.

11/8/2010parentGreat kids, great teachers, all come together here.
11/8/2010parentTeachers are the best! Students are respected and celebrated. The school has a great history.
6/29/2010 School has a big variety of classes for basic studies as well as advanced. It's lacking personal attention to the students. None of the teachers shared nor passed his passion, interest and love to the subject they're teaching. School is more like a college environment where you learn on your own how to swim along with everybody else and survive. Almost no social life, any kind of interesting events in the school.
5/1/2010studentHaving transferred here from Stuy, I feel that Science is the friendlier and more laid-back of the two. Despite less freedom (Stuy has no detention policy) and an odd location, Science's teachers helped me excel at subjects I had struggled with at Stuy. The pace is slower and material is more tought-to-the-test (be it AP or Regents), especially in math and science. Overall, the music department here is much more selective/better than Stuy's, and it's easier to get into most AP courses. I especially like the 24/7 access to current grades and email alerts for missing assignments; Science is more tech-savvy than any school I've seen. I miss Stuy's gorgeous building and more advanced material, but at Bronx Science my grades are better AND I'm getting a good night's sleep.
11/7/2009parentBecause it is the only school that makes mensa candidates doubt their capabilities
11/7/2009studentIt's the best there is the faculty is great.
11/7/2009otherNo other secondary school in the world has produced so many luminaries.
11/7/2009parentAs a parent of two kids at Broxn Sci. High Sch and Hunter High Sch. respectively, I feel Broxn Sci. High Sch. ont only set up high standard academically but also build up a strong communication net work with parent and students with rspect. We knew that is going on with our kids at school on daily basis and able to be involved and that what I like best about the school.
11/7/2009parentI received an excellent education at Bronx Science. It allowed girls to be admitted years before Stuyvesant. In many ways my high school education at Bronx Science was more engaging and challenging than in college.
11/7/2009parentCurriculum keeps up with new technology instruction. Excellent instructors and an amazingly diverse student body.
11/7/2009parentThe dedication of the school to educating its students is unparalleled.
11/7/2009parentAs a parent of two Bronx Science students I want to point out that Science has taught my kids respect, tenacity and ambition.
11/7/2009parentWell organized administrator, hard working teacher, excellent group of students.
11/7/2009parentIt's a collection of the best of NYC from every background!
11/7/2009studentSuper smart teachers, fantastic curriculum, great reputation, a no-brainer
11/7/2009parentThe camaraderie and the diversity that helped build life long friendships.

11/7/2009studentBecause the education and the students were both outstanding
11/7/2009studentThe best experience! Inspiring and challenging teachers.
11/7/2009otherAside from the great education, and opportunities for research and advanced study for gifted students, the people I met there are my lifelong friends and compatriots. The diversity of people - both in terms of their ethnic backgrounds and number and types of talents - is unmatched in any other experience/school/organization that I have encountered in any area of my life. And I graduated from an Ivy League university. Is there a higher compliment than that?
11/7/2009otherThe most stimulating intellectual environment in which I have ever found myself.
11/7/2009otherBx Science prepared me for a life of the mind in a way no other school could have.
11/7/2009parentIt is simply the greatest environment in which to learn
11/7/2009parentTeachers are what make a school great. It may take a while for students to appreciate what teachers do and how they influence each student's life- but they will. I just past the NY State Bar exam and looking back it was the teachers and mentors at Bronx Science that pushed me to follow my dreams!
11/7/2009studentI still enjoy people's reactions when I tell them I went to Bronx Science -- they just know I'm so smart!!
11/7/2009otherWhat a fantastic education, and it is public school.
11/7/2009parentBronx Science is an enormous opportunity to study in a diverse environment surrounded by individuals seeking success. Students who can perform at such a high level entering 9th grade unconsciously motivate one another toward higher levels. I was privileged to have such exposure, and continually realize how much I have profited from the experience.
11/7/2009otherRigorous classes; numerous electives; and smart, talented and diverse student body represented from the 5 boroughs
11/7/2009otherThis school has a great reputation behind it that extends beyond New York. I would not be where I am now if not for Bronx Sci, worth the daily 3 hours I spent on the subway to go!
11/7/2009parentBecause I learned knowledge and wisdom which in turn helped me understand Jesus Christ more.
11/7/2009otherGreat research opportunities and challenging classes with a really diverse student body!
11/7/2009parentA place where such a diverse population exists - but joined by the desire to get a quality education. Even now, Bx Science's reputation is nationwide and people are so interested to hear that I went to Bronx Science.
11/7/2009parentBronx Science has helped me grow so much as a person and as a student. Without Bronx Science, I would not be who I was today and would not have met the amazing people there.
11/7/2009studentThere's a reason the Bronx High School of Science is always among the elite high schools in the United States and the world. Four years at Bronx Science prepares students for the rigors of a successful life and transforms them into open-minded, independent thinkers.
11/7/2009parentChallenging classes, great teachers, wonderfully diverse student body and beautiful campus!

11/7/2009parentSome of the best years of my academic life were spent here. Awesome teachers, awesome classes, awesome people!
11/7/2009otherIt was competitive and built up my work ethic. To be honest, it was harder than the Tier 1 college I went to.
11/7/2009studentBetter than Tech, tougher than Stuy, and located a stone's throw from the world-renowned Bronx Zoo. Award-winning yearbook, too, I might add...
11/7/2009studentI loved my time in high school and not a lot of American kids can say that! It was a place where even the geeks and nerds felt cool.
11/7/2009studentEveryone is smart, driven, and friendly. Faculty is great, love the open campus. Had a great time.

11/7/2009parentBronx Science provides an excellent education. The curriculum is rigorous and the teachers are dedicated.
11/7/2009otherIt was a big part of making me who i am. Some of the most outstanding people i have ever known were there with me.

Everything I learned there shaped me as a student and I pass that knowledge down to my sisters (one of them took the test today!). I am proud to be part of Bronx Science's history- even though as other voters have said, the politics of the school was horrible. The teachers and fellow students, however, were amazing. Best 4 years ever.

The teachers go with the school spirit and encourage kids to join in.

11/6/2009parentAs a parent I''m very impressed by the fact that I'm informed weekly or even daily about everything what is happening in the school with my daughter and everybody else who works or studies in school. This is via email, mail or phone (for emergencies). It's great to know my daughter's school grades every Friday. We can act fast to improve her grades if it's necessary. I also get weekly an email with 'cutting and detention' report for my daughter. School PA is very active, has a website and weekly emails. All this emails are very easy to forward to my daughter and my husband. I'm glad that they worked to incorporate and keep updated this great 21st century communication tool. This way teachers and parents can join forces to work to raise good children. PS: if my daughter's grades are very good I'm forwarding the email to her sister (4 years younger ) to create competition.

It is a school that reaches out to be supportive and inclusive and at the same time keeps the focus on providing an excellent education to the student body.

That in itself makes me so proud to be the parent of a student who attends Bronx Science.

10/24/2009studentIt provides fun classes and a great staff that really cares about the betterment of its students
10/24/2009studentAs an incoming freshman, the commute to Bronx Science is one of the biggest factors that will make you stop, hesitate, and consider your local high school. Those brave enough to enroll, however, soon realize that the nearly 2 hours on the bus, train, and walking is more than worth it. Bronx Science, seemingly secluded from the rest of the city, was my passport to a more cosmopolitan education: I learned, for example, AP Physics, Global History, Studio Photography in the classroom, and, unlike most city high school students, expanded my education by exploring the city during my commute. My classmates were equally as diverse, both in interests and backgrounds, and interacting with them both in class and is extracurriculars proved to be beneficial to my leadership skills. It is easy for underclassmen to feel ambivalent towards the school-- I once felt the same-- but come your junior and senior year, you will love it, as you can claim unity with a class that has made it through the commute for all four years! Stick with it, embrace it. There is a sense of community at Bronx Science, if not in the administration, than at least in the student body, that does not quite exist at other schools, that you will not fully comprehend until you graduate, but will help form you in ways you do not even realize. As a current senior at an Ivy League university, I am proud to be an alumna of one of the most premiere high schools not just in the city, but in the entire country!

10/22/2009parentThe school just has a wealth of recources availible to the students. The teachers are always trying to help, and at times it seems that the administration is working against them and the students. The most I've learned here is from students and not teachers. Our extracurriculars are very underfunded so we need this money. Please anyone who is reading this, help us out and vote for us.

10/18/2009studentIt was like a small little bubble in the Bronx where the popular kids were the ones with the highest GPAs, and instead of rooting for a football team, we celebrated our music department. Unlike the other specialized schools, the students at the Bronx High School of Science were pretty laid back, diverse, and were accepted into the same colleges and universities without any mental breakdowns or suicides.

Challenging classes, great friends and plenty of open doors make Bronx Science a great place.

9/20/2009studentthere are a lot of amazing teachers that want to see nothing other than their students learning about history, short stories, linear equations, chemistry equations, etc. they truly care about the students and their only wish is to see them achieve above and beyond.

They have tons of AP and honors courses which can help prepare you for college, and a variety of clubs and teams. There's something for everyone there. In addition, most of the teachers are great and readily available to help you if you need it. They're more than teachers as well, they're also your friends. And although they demand a lot from the students, they let us know that it is for our own good. And these are just some of the reasons I love Bronx Science.
9/20/2009studentits the only school that doesnt have 'clicks' such as jocks and cheerleaders. We are all pretty together.

9/20/2009studentIt's a great school and well-known throughout the country. Many of the gifted students from this school go on to Ivy League schools and we have six Pulitzer Prize graduates!
9/20/2009otherAlthough this is supposed to be a supercompetetive high school (and it is), I felt that people helped each other a lot more than they hurt each other. The challenges we faced we made it through only because we had each other, and I think that because the challenges are more challenging than at most other schools, we supported each other more and that makes this school really special.
9/20/2009parentIt is clean The staff and security is good The teachers are dedicated to teaching There are many foreign language classe to choose from.

9/20/2009studentBronx Science was the best thing I every got out of New York City - great learning experience, and made the best friends that lasted for decades.
8/6/2009parentExcellent School, Most advanced in curriculum. This is one of the most competitive schools in the US. You need to pass the SHSAT to get in.
12/21/2008parenta pressure cooker. Good academics, but a not peasant place to be an adolescent.
12/15/2008studentThis school was worth the 2-hour commute from queens. Great intellectual climate, great instruction, great inspiration for the future. Attending Science really drove home the power of positive peer pressure. When everyone pushes each other to do their best, everyone wins.
10/4/2008parentWhenever I have had a question and have contacted a faculty member, I have gotten an email back almost immediately. The faculty goes to great lengths to make this school personalized. The academics are 1st exceed any standard imaginable. This has been a delight for two years.
1/7/2007parentPrepared my daughter for an Ivy League college like no other education could have. She said her first year of college was easier than courses she took in high school. Also left her with a view on the 'real world' given the diversity of the student population; she was surprised at the relative homogeniety of college in comparison.
4/28/2006parentexcellent school. provides students with a solid foundation for the future.
4/26/2006studentBronx high school of Science is an excellent school in which any child would love to attend. The food is good. The students are discipline and are friendly.The teachers there a caring and responsible in their own way. Every child has the ability to do their best and if you set your mind to it along with the work that is to be done. I can reassure you, that you will soar to the top
4/13/2006parentToo much for some students. Bronx Science really needs to shape up, offer less hard courses, and be more leanient. Some teachers need to retire.
4/13/2006parentLovely school, its amazing. they couldnt do anything better.
3/28/2006parentBronx school of science is one of the better schools in the Bronx. It is of high standards and prepares your child for success in almost any college that he would want to attend. His chances of being accepted at the college of his choice is greater. Your child will get a good education education. The school also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities. Parents are encouraged to stay involved in their chil;d's education.
3/28/2006former studentThis is the crown jewel of the NYC Public School system. The curriculum is challenging without being overwhelming as is often the case in schools seeking to be 'prestigious.' There is no shortage of involvment from both parents and alumni alike, as most graduates opt to send their own children there (as I will). Science is a crucible where imputities such as self-doubt and meekness are burned away, and the resulting student is ready to take on, and conquer, the world.
11/2/2005studentBronx high school of science has been great since I started 2 years ago.
10/27/2005parentThis school was an excellent choice for my child. He has learned so much in his 3 years there and I just adore it. This school is fantastic.

5/14/2005former studentWall Street Journal newspaper ranked this school 49 among top feeder schools to some of the best colleges and universities. Two other New York City public schools ranked better : Hunter College High School and Stuyvesant High School.
1/29/2005former studentThis school is a wonderful school. however it is hard to get there and keep up the work so i would suggest parents should discuss with their kids.
11/25/2004parentwonderful school... the english department was terrific... they taught my daughter how to be a much better writer than when she first entered... she truly became a more confident person when she left.
7/27/2004former studentGraduated here in '75. Active in school alumni affairs and aware of changes. School was and always is academically excellent. Student body draws from all over NY/NJ/CT area - very diverse. Terrific overall program - not just science and math. School is very large but lesser-achievers do not get lost to the 'stars'. Lesser achievers here are A students elsewhere, by the way. School, as you might expect, has always been a little lacking in the breadth of athletics. But, I'm sure your kid, if going here, is not a jock.
7/14/2004former studentSimply a wonderful school. Very, very large. Remote part of the Bronx but a safe neighborhood. Rigorous science program. International reputation. Tremendously diverse student body. Dedicated teachers. Reasonably well funded relative to other NYC schools.
8/25/2003former studentThis school was a great experience! There are tons of opportunities for extracurricular activities, teachers go over the top to help students, and the overall aura of the school is great! This high school is very challenging, so if you are a dedicated and motivated student, it's for you! Students will love the classes here! Even though it's a big school, the dedicated faculty makes an effort to know each student individually and assist them if needed. I had a great high school experience ! In fact, compared to classes at Bronx High School of Science, College was a breeze! It really prepared me for college and for life. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
8/19/2003former studentThe students at Bronx Science are pretty modest about it, but in fact, it is one of the best schools to send your kid. It's a great stepping stone for getting involved whether it is for community service, athletic activities, social activities, not to mention academic achievements. The school gets a lot of support from the Parents Association, which gives financial support to AP programs for students. A big bonus is the substantial campus space which many other schools are unable to provide for the student body.
