    I am a sophomore at this school and will graduate in 2016 many people think the school is rather unpleasant but you can never really know until you enroll. Cobble Hill High School is a really good high school. The staff do really well at allowing students to ask questions and come at different times for extra help. The teachers teach at an average pace and are willing to give you Le-way on assignments for a good reason. The school is really clean despite the daily trash that custodians clean every night. The school is really well rounded but sometimes i wish they offered more foreign language classes and more AP classes.

    Great School in a good community. Come check us out -- we are rapidly becoming a school of choice as our student outcomes begin to rival some better known schools in Brooklyn with screened programs.

    I hate this skewl wiff all mah might. i am waring all freshmens do not go to this skewl. i am a freshman n this skewl and is transfering out. the teachers are okaii but this skewl is academical slow. Ive been in the scholars class since 5th grade and everything they teach i know ! the gym is very small. all you do is run around a circle and thts it. theres hardly no extra classes. and the people there are just not the people you want to see for 4 yrs. trust me you do not want to go to this skewl. plus u knt bring your cell phone or ipods nothing. plus if u bringing lunch or breakfast you knt open the drink til you get there cus they will throw it out ! this skewl is jus ugh !

    I like Cobble Hill HS and so does my daughter. A per son will get out of the school what they put in. Students that fail to apply themselves will fail to achieve. The teachers are great and the Principal is easy to talk to and return phone calls himself not through his secretary.

    this school did not challenge nor did the teachers push me to succeed

    This school did not adequately prepare me for the realities of the world of college education. What happened to the physics and advanced mathematics courses? This system is about fulfilling a quota at this school and therefor implementing a cycle where students who are doing good are ignored. What on earth am I going to do with a history degree? Upon attending college I chose a major that focused more on the maths and sciences but Cobble Hill just wanted to run a business and fulfill a quota so all I knew was american history. Where was the challenge to achieve? Where was the initiative for the students to learn worth while subjects? The system is manipulated and screwed up and guess what ends up happening to students who go through this system? The students enter the real world jobs and college only to be decimated.

    The school has good and bad qualities. There are not enough extracurricular activites i find and there are few teachers. I dont feel as if the school prepared my son for college instead it was about keeping the kids there. Compared to the other programs that he had attended this school lacked organization and discipine.

    This school does not meet the level or quality of work/assignments that I believe is necessary for the thorough preparation required for the transition to higher education. I am very disappointed in this school and the substandards of some of these teachers. I can't wait for my sibling to graduate and begin to embark on a real education.
