If you don't share the views of others when it comes to anything related to politics, you will be bullied. They do not accept people with different opinions in this high school.

NYC Museum School is a school to look out for! The teachers care, Great AP classes, college support! Sports are great and collaborate with LAB High School, who are also in the same building. This opens up a greater friend base and broadens team spirit! The principal and vice principals care about this school, the teachers, kids, and parents! The new PTA is made up of motivated and smart parents that are working hard to make a difference! This is a school that is getting better with every year! My daughter loves this school and is so happy to go to school every day. What sets this school apart from others is the 1 week module's 4 times a year, in which, the kids visit a diverse group of museums and integrate their visits with the curriculum they are learning! This is a great way to take advantage of NYC's resources! The school is small and mostly on one floor but shares a beautiful theater, lunchroom, and a gym with Lab middle and high school! They just had a lovely remodel of their front and internal courtyards where the kids can sit and chill or study! Look out for this school!!!!
