Baruch College Campus High School 8/14/2005

This was the High School I attended; I was in the first ever graduating class from this High School. This school opened in 1997 with an entering class of 100. It is a small school that only accepts 100 students a year. It is based in the same facilities as Baruch College, the classrooms are actually shared with them. The classrooms are for high school students during the day, and college students during the night. When I first entered this school I hated it. They were really tough on us because we were the first entering class. They did not know what was considered too much work and just wanted to continously push us. The literature is what sets this school apart from the rest, because literature was what they focused on. Students has to read a minimum of 25 books a year and do 20 hours of community service. Due to the small population at this school, each student has an advisor and they keep tabs on the book and community service requirements. This is a good thing because students got a lot more individual attention. The math and sciences from this school is/was not good. I can honestly say I was not prepared in terms of math and sciences when I entered my Engineering college. But that could just be the fact that I went to an engineering university where the math and sciences are a lot tougher. In the end, when I graduated, I realized I enjoyed my time at this school. It taught me a lot and I enjoyed the small community this school has to offer. There were no bullies or trouble, the environment was generally very safe. I would recommend ANYONE to come to this high school. I know I said the math and sciences were weak, but that's pretty much the same in most NYC high schools. A final note, the school has changed a lot since I graduated 4 years ago. Take a tour to see for yourself. Tours are usually offered if requested. more

A Perfect High School 8/9/2005

If you are the parent of an entering 8th grader in September, it is time to look for a high school. Baruch College Campus HS (BCCHS) is a gem of the NYC public school system. They recently graduated their fifth class of which my daughter was a member. It has been sited as one of the country's best public high schools by US News and Business Reports and a 100% college acceptance rate of their students. Located on the campus of Baruch College, their space is limited but that does nothing to diminish the school spirit fostered here. Small enough that almost all the teachers know each and every student, it is a young school led by the dynamic Alicia Perez-Katz and her staff of teachers, many of whom are in their mid 20's & 30's. All subjects are taught at the honors level and extra curricular activities are actively encouraged; there are no home rooms as such but each group of about 20-25 students are assigned to an advisory with a teacher who remains with them through graduation. In addition to the dynamic faculty, the school also has a very active PTA . more
