Honestly, as a student who went from freshmen to senior, this school shouldn't be even allowed firstly, with bad teachers and the student feel helpless, bad food every lunch day, For me I needed to pickup my small sister after school but they wouldn't let me change my schedule at all. Even my friend for religion purposes they wouldn't let him change one period or even his lunch as he had to be fasting. All in all if you are looking for a student POV and whether this school is the one or not, it's definitely not the one.

It is a beautiful school where students feel comfortable. School training programa includes many areas aimed at personal development of the child, including the arts, mathematics, sports, law, etc. Teachers help the students to evaluate their knowledge, participating in these programs. They support and motivate New Utrecht's students to conduct school years for the benefit of themselves, found themselves, and acquire and enhance certainty in the choice of future profession.

this is a great school my child started the N.U.H school and she is very happy. The school is located in a very good area of Brooklyn, she can go by bus or train since bus B8, train D, pass by school area. There is a lot of stores where the student can go buy things. The teacher are very nice. The school has very good coaches that encourage kids to join their teams to keep kids out of trouble. The guards that guard the school are very protected of school and will assist if you asked for help. Thanks to Guard Mr. Cruz who was very helpful to me and my child when she went to get her program and picture ID. I will definitely recommend this school.
