I think i should apply for this high school because Herbert H. Lehman High School is the perfect school for me. I am a junior in the junior high school called Arturo Toscanni Complex in the Bronx but my school was split into three schools, so now my schools name is Jhs 145. I will send an application to this school because due to my research this school has a great rating.
