Our Review

New Visions Charter High School for Advanced Math & Science III offers four years of math and science to prepare students for careers such as engineering, medicine, technology or environmental science. Class sizes average 25 students, smaller than the typical public high school.

Founded in 2013, the school shares the Sheepshead Bay High School building with three schools, including its sister school, New Visions Charter High School for Humanities III. They are modeled after the flagship New Visions schools that opened in September 2011 in the John F. Kennedy building in the Bronx. New Visions for Public Schools, a nonprofit founded in 1989, has worked with the Department of Education and community partners to create more than 100 small schools in New York City.

Classes are organized in three trimesters (instead of two semesters) a year, which allows students to take more courses and accumulate more credits. Advanced Placement classes include: Calculus, English Language, Environmental Science, Government, World History, Statistics and US History. [photo provided by New Visions]

Students attend school from about 8:15 am to 4:15 pm except on Wednesdays. There is a required summer session before and after 9th grade. After school activities are available three days a week until 6 pm, offering clubs determined by student interest. Students are encouraged to try out for sports teams on the Sheepshead Bay Campus.

A downside: while students feel teachers maintain order, and they feel safe at school, fewer than half said students treat one other with respect, according to school surveys. Advisors meet with their students daily.

ADMISSIONS:Lottery. Applications for 9th and 10th grade can be submitted online atwww.newvisions.org/Charterand must be completed by early April. Preference to District 22.(Lydie Raschka, school data, July 2017)
