The education at this school is really what you make of it. It have all the necessary resources and teachers there to get you into an Ivy League or highly competitive college, if you want to (I am an alumni and have attended an Ivy League for both my undergrad and grad school with full scholarship). I deducted one star because the school security really needs improvement, I can easily sneak into the school through the side doors when a student comes out. Further, you really need to get into their honors or AP to ensure a good learning environment because LIC is a zone school surrounded by two public housings, so some kids in the regular classes are purely there to make trouble, not to learn.
My daughter is a freshman at this school. Last night, she complained to me that there were two boys in her history class who were not even LICH students. Apparently many of the freshman students have not received photo ID's yet. I called the school and told the head of security about this problem and she hung up on me. It's only September and I might have to start thinking about moving to my daughter to another school if this is how LICH's administration treats the parents of its students.
Great and many opportunities can be made in this school there are so many extra curricular activities everyday and the faculty and staff are always at the top of their game.
I went to Long Island City High School when it was in the old building. It was and still a great school. I am very happy to see that it is still fully operational as an educational beacon. LongIsland High School is vital and essential to Queens and for the educational institutions OF the City of New York. It is diverse thus it should remain open. I suggest that the New York City Department of Education incorporate American Sign Language as a course to be taught exclusively at Long Island City High School to students who are not deaf.
