Classes in law, bio-medicine and cybersecurity
Once a struggling school, Cobble Hill School of American Studies has turned the corner. Although many students come into the school below grade level, about three-quarters graduate on time and almost no one drops outs. The turnaround has come under Anna Maria Mule who has been principal since 2010.
Cobble Hill offers two programs: one on law and government; the other on biomedicine and health careers. Course offerings include several law classes, Syracuse University courses in cybersecurity and science research, and Advanced Placement classes including biology and U.S history.
Students in a law class learn to cross examine, while a forensic science class focuses on analyzing data and conducting scientific investigations, according to an educator who visited the school for the Department of Education. Teachers stress projects and student collaboration.
Attendance remains a struggle. More than half the students miss at least a month of school each year.
Although the school is fairly small, it offers a number of extracurricular activities, including an Inside Broadway theater workshop and various internships. There are no PSAL sports for girls, however. Students in need of extra help may attend after school tutoring or Saturday classes. A partnership with Wediko Children’s Services enables Cobble Hill to provide supports, including individual and group counselling, to students and their families.
Special education: Cobble Hill has team teaching classes with a mix of general and special education students. (Gail Robinson, from DOE records, November 2018)

Biomedical Sciences/Health Careers
Whether discovering new cancer treatments or teaching healthy lifestyle choices, today's biomedical science professionals are tackling big challenges to make the world a better place. Our Biomedical Science students, through Project Lead the Way courses, are taking on these same real-world challenges while still in high school. Students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems using the same tools used by professionals in hospitals and labs.
Pre-Law Institute/American Studies
Are you a natural debater? Are you interested in issues of social justice, advocacy, and equity? Then our comprehensive four-year Pre-Law Institute and American Studies offerings may be the best fit for you. While in high school, our pre-law students are introduced to professional opportunities in criminal, constitutional, family, and civil law. Students engage in legal research, engage in moot court and mock trial, and learn about careers in law through simulations and real world experiences.
