A specialized high school where all the smart kids who either are obsessed with history or just didn’t score high enough on the shsat to get into stuyvesant. It always feels like the north pole in this little hallway of the school and so you’ll catch all the nerdy students in canada goose jackets in the summer. Don’t be fooled though, these students are also hard core druggies who smoke weed to find happiness when their history exams are making them cry every night. Harris field is the home of all the American studies Ashtrays and they can be spotted right and left but there will be the occasional holy child of god who avoids drugs and Harris field like they are a dangerous street in nyc. Don’t even get me started on the homework, all 5 hours of it. However it is number 1 ranked oh wait i mean number 2 and the kids receive so much useful information that they will of course 100% definitely use in the real world.
Sorry I go to the High School of American studies i can’t hang out because i need to study for my global test.

Specilized high school in New York City, full of white history nerds that are scared of other specilized schools. Math is a joke, but history is on point.

A school with lots of lit people, too much textbook reading tho. The principal is the best, and you learn how to diagram sentences with him (with him is a prepositional phrase). Terrible math program, pretty good history, but good school and Bronx sci wants to be us
Oh yeah the high school of American studies is cool
