Our Insights

What’s Special

Rigorous academics in a welcoming environment

The Downside

Cramped facilities

Baruch College Campus High School offers rigorous academics in a pleasant and welcoming environment. Students are taught to write well and read classical and contemporary texts. They perform community service and explore issues of equity and social justice in their classes and extracurricular activities.

Group work and discussions are common in classes. Teachers encourage independent learning. For instance, in math, students may tackle a new topic on their own as part of their homework before the teacher delves deeper into it in class.

Writing is emphasized in all subjects, and 11th-graders take a dedicated writing course where they draft a lengthy research paper and begin work on college application essays.  

History lessons are tied to contemporary issues, so, for example, students learning about the Holocaust also study more recent examples of extreme oppression and the ways people try to resist.

Lessons don’t shy away from difficult topics. Seniors research and draft policy papers on topics of interest such as rape on college campuses. In 10th grade, students complete a year-long social action project, such as volunteering at a homeless shelter, hosting an event around gun violence, raising funds for a charity, or facilitating a racial justice forum.

Teachers and staff have also taken steps to promote a more inclusive environment. The school acquired more books that address topics and stories relevant to Black, Hispanic and LGBTQ+ students. The school uses a “restorative justice” approach to discipline that minimizes suspensions and promotes positive behavior through conversation, reflection and corrective action. A lot of this takes place during small-group advisory classes, which students attend three times each week.

All students must perform 100 hours of community service before graduation. Some seniors “intern” in lower-grade classes by helping the teachers during lessons and running study groups with students. Many activities have a service focus, including student leadership teams that address quality of school life issues such as equity, tech support, environment sustainability, and translation of documents into languages spoken in students’ homes.

All students study Spanish and the school offers a nice array of advanced and college level courses. There are multiple visual arts classes. After-school options include sports and more than 30 different clubs as well as drama production and vocal music.

The school was originally founded in collaboration with Baruch College, but it is no longer on the college campus. Some perks remain. Students may earn both high school and college credit (from Baruch College) for a calculus class taught at the high school. They also have access to the Baruch College library and get priority registration for its College Now courses.

Baruch High School occupies five floors in a former office building, which used to house the School for the Physical City (now closed). The facilities are maintained nicely, but some classrooms are cramped. There’s a tiny all-purpose room that is used as a gymnasium. Students may leave the building for lunch.

The college office staff works with all students and families starting in 9th grade. In 11th grade, each student gets one-on-one support with the college office, as well as through their English classes, where students write their personal statements. There is a school-wide annual career day.

SPECIAL EDUCATION: There are ICT (integrated co-teaching) classes, which serve a mix of general education and students with special needs and are taught by two teachers, one trained in special education. model. (Laura Zingmond, May 2024 via interview)
