Having crash-landed in ICE from a far different world (New Eng. Preps), it takes some real concentration under a foreign lens and a selfless focus to portray this school as a "great" one. But I've managed. I came in with a fear of how misleading a public school other than the tops can be in my road to

I felt that a temporarily satisfying blend with the kids here would eviscerate my prep school norms and values, throwing away everything from my ties to my intellectual taste. But by May of that year, it had hit me that the school stood strong . Its philosophical approach to a liberal style of learning doesn't stay too artsy and the environment is one where success isn't socially hindered. The kids, pieced by a rarely, significantly diverse body, have a positive approach to their lives (with a few exceptions). The teachers ARE there to help you, actually no kidding. There is potential in that aging 5th floor of the old Stuy building. Given more funding and resources, the school WILL thrive and its unorthodox system can prove to succeed.

Absolutely top notch teachers and curriculum. The school itself (on the top two floors of the old Stuyvesant High School) is a bit "dog-eared" and could use some sprucing up. The class assignments (most often collaborative projects, hence the name) are consistently sophisticated and challenging. The
