Me looking at this school makes me want to enroll which I am next year for the 9th grade I like this school due to their educations and physical development on your body this school might be the best high school I have seen.

Let me begin to tell whomever is reading this that this high school changed my life. Perfectly small and located in one of the greatest locations in the city, my experience at BOSS was ultimately amazing. My teachers were the highlight of my high school career, they were my outstanding mentors and they always shared every bit of knowledge they could to us. They want to see you succeed, from the staff outside of the classroom to the ones in it, they all formed relationships with the students that made them feel appreciated and wanted.Of course, there were students who failed to work in an academic environment and who rarely took academics seriously, just as any high school would have. The thing that differentiates those who fail to work in an academic environment in contrast to those who do, is that those who fail to comply in an academic setting are mainly the ones to complain about this school. As a student who worked hard and earned good grades, coming out of this high school I learned so much from both the academic and professional world.The trips were beneficial for our college knowledge and benefit. We had plenty of college fairs and programs like Morgan Stanley and the Big Brothers and Sisters Program of New York City that served to educate my peers and I about the process of college selection and what appropriate steps were needed to apply to a desired college or university. In the classrooms we also had special guests from all business professional fields coming in to talk about their college experience and what it was like post college graduation. Fun trips included the background of sports business. I vividly remember going to Citi Field and being able to sit in the Mets conference room where Mr. Met surprised us. We went to the Red Bull's stadium and MLB Network to explore and meet business professions who showed us what their daily tasks consist of. I can think of many more, but I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise your children are about to embark.In all, I have to say that this school is worth it. Anyone who says otherwise might've not taken advantage of most of the opportunities given including the amazing resources (staff), the way my peers and I did back in 2015. It's been 2 years since I graduated from BOSS and I still keep in contact with most of my former teachers. My college advisor made the college dream possible for most of us. Thanks to this school and its resources, we are in top colleges in the country.I still visit often upon my college breaks. The campus itself has gotten way better since our prior cohorts. Every year I've noticed that they try their hardest to get better. That's the reason why I rated this school a 5 star high school. Parents, I urge you to please send your daughter/ son to this magnificent school. Don't pass up a good opportunity.- 2015 Alum. The class of "Bossome"
