Herbert H Lehman High School Reviews
Lehman needs to have more monitoring and be much stricter on bullying -- and hats should be removed the minute they enter the building.
Herbert H. Lehman High School is an amazing place to attend. I attended and graduated 34 years ago from Lehman and I do agree that it is our parents who want to have us succeed are the ones to make us what we are today. I used to love just hanging out and not going to class but my parents got involved and I was back into classes and working hard towards my future. We make our school and we are what we are as well as the school is what we are. Don't give up, please!!!!!!!!!!!
This school definately changed and not for the good I should say...this school is filthy and the students don't even go to class and when they do,they disturb the rest of the other students that wanna learn. The teachers are very rude to the students and disrespect them and vice versa. There are constant fights and safety issues in this school. As a current student,I feel unsafe in this school and was also violated in many ways a girl can be violated. I strongly recommend not to go to this school.
I went to Herbert H Lehman High School over 20 years ago, and it was good then but quickly changing and not for the better. During school hours you hardly saw kids outside. Now you can't tell if classes are going on or if classes are held outside. The fabric of the neighborhood has also changed, and I would not recommend attending this school now.
Throg's Neck, and Pelham Bay are not the safest places in the world. Kids that live in that neighborhood make it hard for kids that live in the other side of the Bronx.
It is a very great school. Students learn well and they are very focused with their work. Lehman High is one of the best schools in nyc.
I say Herbert Lehman High has changed very much over the years -- not for the better. It is not the school of choice for the Pelham Bay and Throgs Neck children and that is a shame for the parents of HS kids in those areas. They should not allow out of district kids in the school because they cause too much trouble.
