The only school in New York where almost every kid is an obnoxious, cocky asshole who has no social life, but tries to act like they're mad gangster anyways.
Stuyvesant Kid: Yo, I have 58 knives on me and I could dickslap you to death.
5-Year-Old: Shut the fuck up you cock sucking shitface.
Stuyvesant Kid: LOL ITS OKIE I CAN HAX YU ONLINE LATER!!1
A prestigous public high school in the TriBeCa area of New York City requiring an entrance examination also used by Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech, taken by over 20,000 students with the top 800 or so being accepted to stuyvesant. Students are often characterized by drug usage, lack of
sleep, nerdiness, high SAT scores and physical dependency upon escalators.
"Yo, you go to stuy?"
"You's a nerd."
"What'd you get on the SAT?"
"Word. What's the integral of tan(x)?"

A great, somewhat well-endowed high school in New York City; generally considered to be the best public education one can receive in the city. Students are required to score above a certain cutoff on a multiple-choice entrance exam to get in. Contents of the exam are fairly similar to those of an IQ test, if you look at it cynically. Because of its location in NYC, the student population is very diverse, but students do tend to clump together in cliques, though not very heavily. The success of the school is primarily driven by the bright, over-achieving (to the point of masochism) students. The teachers varied, but many, if not most, are mediocre to average. The school is well funded for an urban New York school ($12 million a year at this time), but that amount is meager compared to other schools of its class, like Thomas Jefferson.more...
1. They're all super genius nerds.
Around 600 to 1000 students are admitted each year. These are going to be pretty bright kids, and it does include the very top slice of the students in NYC... but do you really think all 800 kids born in the same year, living in NYC, are all Einsteins?
2. Everyone does drugs there.
There are a lot of people who do drugs at Stuy, but not disproportionally more than at any other high school.
3. Everyone's stuck-up.
And there aren't any of those people in your school? Obviously, there are some arrogant people, but mos...
uber school for the intellectually gifted, but doesnt necessarily mean the students are street smart b/c the sixth floor is always crowded with dirks who play Magic and have no girlfriends.
About 3 hot guys and 3,000 ugly ones...HELL for the single girl.
Not nearly as good as Hunter. Compare the accolades and college admissions numbers for each and Stuy comes up short. Hunter College High School comes up less often in discussions of competitive NYC schools because the student population is relatively small and because it is not administered by the New York City Department of Education (the primary enablers of the crack cocaine epidemic). Give the place a good once over and you'll think twice about sending your kids there.
Jamal wasn't excepted to Hunter in the 7th grade so he took a shot at Stuyvesant two years later and did just fine.
school that has their own cool big ass theater...wunna go there but like yeaa...need a 999999 average...
stuy owns you
