A report conducted by and published on the web site Niche.com says that Brooklyn Technical High School in Fort Greene is the 40th best public high school in all of New York State.

The school was given an overall grade of A+ based on reviews from parents and students. The school was evaluated and received an A+ on the quality of the teachers, administration/policies, educational results, and extracurricular activities. For academics and student culture and diversity the grade came slightly down to an A, and for resources and the facility, unfortunately the school was only able to pull a B-. Brooklyn Tech almost failed in the food department, receiving a scant C+.

“Brooklyn Tech prepared me for college in just about every way possible,” a former student wrote in an assessment of the school. “The curriculum itself is meant to push students above and beyond in order to give them an advantage in the real world and in college. As a college student, I can honestly say that most of the work has been easy, whether it’s writing essays, computing math problems, or brainstorming ideas for projects.”

The web site had the task of ranking a total of 14,431 public high schools all over the United States. They collected over 4.6 million evaluations from 280,000 students and parents.

Top ten New York public high schools include:

1.    Stuyvesant High School
2.    Staten Island Technical High School
3.    Jericho Senior High School
4.    Rye High School
5.    Horace Greeley High School
6.    Edgemont Junior/Senior High School
7.    Great Neck South High School
8.    Scarsdale Senior High School
9.    Blind Brook High School
10.    Manhasset Secondary School
