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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

This is a wonderful school, my daughter really liked it, I went to the schools many times, the president was very nice to meet the parent if he is not busy, lots of out of school activities from all areas. it is hard to get in, lots of kids travel from different zones.

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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, ...  Read more

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. ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more
