Teachers are supportive if the child is struggling in a subject. The classmates help one another. There is no music currently, but art, repertoire, & athletics are available. There are academic awards every semester and athletic awards every year. I attended Stuyvesant HS back in the day and I am now a supporter of one-gender schools. Highly recommend!!!

This is by far a superior education. It teaches the boys how to think outside the norm, study diligently, and be supportive of their classmates. It also teaches them how to give back in whatever profession they choose. Truly a top notch education and school.

Gem in nyc for brightest Catholic boys. Money can`t buy you in but once in you`ll learn much about men for others. Country needs more of this type of school.

Five stars!!! My son graduated in 2017 and despite the fast pace and academic pressure, he loves the school. Occasionally when I asked if some students were bullied, the answer always was: no, and the other students would never tolerate it. I believe that the level of intelligence in everyone there, across the board, makes it a prime learning environment.
