On Educational Outcomes: The work ethic in this high school is practically non-existant. You will get a student trying to do his/her hardest once in awhile but the rowdiness of the classrooms ruin the learning experience. I feel as if this school did not prepare me enough for college and I had to take on the extra weight onto myself in order to get A's in my college classes. Although I do not regret the experience of going to this school because it prepared me for a different social circle that is much more urban than the social circle I was in in my previous high school, St. John's Prep. (I transferred from St. John's Prep to W. C. Bryant H.S. in my junior year)

On Health & Safety: Security is quite lax compared to other colleges. Many of my friends off campus are able to go into the buildings with ease except for Augustine's Hall which requires a student ID to get in. There are public safety emails that are sent out when there is a sign of harm found around the school campus (harasser, fondler, etc. ) The security guards do not really do much and there are not many around the campus, except for at the gate booths. The school nurse is nice but I've never been sick enough to know what her capabilities consists of.

On Sports & Fitness: I believe William Cullen Bryant High School has the best fitness opportunities. Everyone could get involved in different clubs or sports. Many students come and support games such as basketball,volleyball and football. Any one in general can join anything they dream from dancing to yoga. If there is not a program in our school ,you are able to open a club up and have people join your group.

On Academics: I was lucky enough to have great teachers! Some of my friends had classes where they felt they didn't learn much, but I did not have that experience. My teachers were knowledgable and very passionate about their subject.

On Administration & Policies: The policies were pretty on point. You would not be allowed to use your cell phone in class or even the hall ways! They would be taken away if a staff saw you. The dress code was also good. Nothing inappropriate was allowed to be worn to school.
