    Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe at school. There's almost no bullying and the security guards are very dedicated to their job.

    Extracurriculars: At Stuyvesant, there are clubs from mahjong to chess and Harry Potter to cheerleading. The club/pub fair really shows you that Stuy has anything that you could possibly want to participate in.

    Overall Experience: I hope my kids go to Stuyvesant because that's how wonderful it is! There's so much stuff to do, you'll never be bored but instead might be overwhelmed with the amount of things on your schedule. I admit that we have more work than students in other schools, but colleges recognize our academic rigor.

    Teachers: Many teachers are engaging and really love their job, but there's always one teacher in each department that students pray not to have (except for the English department because all the English teachers are amazing).

    Overall Experience: Stuyvesant offered so many things to me that I otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to. The sports teams are amazing and as a baseball player I can say that the coaches really care. The resources are also incredibly impressive and the money we are given is used correctly. The student union does a very good job of distributing money to clubs and sports teams.
