- If something should happen to your player after the season/tournament start date, the policy will refund your fees pro-rata, based on the duration of the season/tournament or when the player has to stop participating.

If a game stoppage occurs in the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half.
We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but our ability to do this is dependent on field availability and lighting.

Jeff Brzoska: A Utah Lacrosse Legend – by Tim Haslam
Thank you once again for reading! Don’t forget to forward to a friend!
Sign up now
If you’re reading this you’ve likely heard the name Jeff Brzoska at some point in your lacrosse journey. To many in two sports he’s known as ‘coach’. To my wife, he’s ‘my guy in Park City’. To me, and I’m sure others, he’s a quick, reliable source for lacrosse information. To everyone, he’s a great friend and someone you can always count on, especially when it comes to lacrosse.
Brzoska was born and Raised in Norwalk, Connecticut which is right in the middle of the Fairfield County hotbed of lacrosse with schools nearby such as Darien, Wilton, New Canaan, Ridgefield, Greenwich, Brunswick, and Staples.
“I grew up in a great neighborhood filled with lots of kids that did nothing but play sports,” said Brzoska. “We played everything all the time. I know its kind of cliché but it was one of those neighborhoods where you left the house in the morning and didn’t return until after the street lights came on. My (non-pro athlete) idol was a kid in the neighborhood who was 4 years older than me named Dave Berry. The kid was a beast in every sport and he would never go easy on me when I played football, lacrosse, or hockey with the older kids. He gave me his old green STX Laser Hi-Wall and I was determined to walk in his foot steps and wear his number in High School some day.”
Brzoska did end up wearing #20, the same as Berry, in High School. Long before that though, Brzoska got his first stick in the 1st grade and couldn’t put it down.
“It was very different back in those days,” said Brzoska. “Organized lacrosse in my town really didn’t start until middle school and there was no such thing as club lacrosse. I loved the game but also loved baseball so I played both all the way through high school. I actually went to college to play hockey and was fortunate that I could also play lacrosse after the season. I turned out to be a better college lacrosse player than hockey player.”
Brzoska played at Western Connecticut State, a D-III college in the Little East Conference before transferring to the University of South Florida where he helped build a club team that eventually became D-II Tampa and USF in the MCLA. After college, there was a stint and merger on Wall Street but Brzoska felt the pull of California and moved to Newport Beach for 9 years before moving to Utah in 2008.
“I came to Utah on a ski trip from and after 48 inches of snow and postponing my flight home twice I was hooked on Utah and moved out less than a year later,” said Brzoska.
Brzoska didn’t immediately get involved with lacrosse.
“To be honest, when I first got here I watched a couple high school playoff games and thought it was pretty terrible to watch,” Brzoska recalls. “The game was slow, sloppy and the fundamentals were completely ignored. I thought to myself that the best team in Utah couldn’t beat the worst team in Connecticut. After a coupe of years living here I realized that I really, really missed the game. So, I got involved with the Park City youth program to see if I could give back to a new lacrosse community what the game had given me for so many years before.”
There he met former Park City head coach Andy Langendorf.
“What makes Jeff special is without a doubt his enthusiasm for the game,” said Langendorf, who coached the Miners for several seasons. “He cheers for everyone, he cheers for the players on both teams, he absolutely loves the game. I always remember when we won our first state championship in Park City. He walked up to me in the dying seconds of the game and gave me a hug that almost broke my ribs. My ribs hurt me for a week afterwards! Jeff loves the game more than anyone I know.”
Nowadays you’ll find Brzoska on the sidelines of the Freshman Park City Miners Football team and the Corner Canyon lacrosse team as the JV head coach and a Varsity assistant. He has coached at the youth, high school, and club levels including co-founding the Utah Blackhawks, Utah Elite, Utah Prime LC, and Utah LC. He is currently working the Salt Lake Summit and is an evaluator for Adrenaline and Legends.
Brzoska has spent just as much times beyond the sidelines as well. He has served on several boards: Park City Lacrosse Organization, SkiTown Shootout, and the ULA/IMLax Youth. He has been a Co-Director of SkiTown and is current the Adrenaline Park City Showdown Co-Director. He’s been a council member or chairman for the ULA U-15 Boys and U-17 Girls National Teams, UHSLL Executive Council, UHSLL Playoff Host, UHSLL Awards, UHSLL All-State Game Founder and Chairman, and currently serves as the Utah Representative to US Lacrosse and the UHSAA Coaches Representative.
I asked Jeff who his mentors are/were and the list is literally too long to publish but one part stood out to me when Jeff said, “When I got into coaching in Utah the game changer for me was Jay Fairman. I had never met anybody who was not only passionate about the game but more importantly the kids. The guy may not have a lacrosse pedigree, but I’m convinced Jay could create a cricket team in a week, coach them like a football team, make them win and in the process make them love the sport. I never met a coach that could get every player to run through a brick wall for him like he can and that’s what I strive for every day.”
Needless to say that if you’ve had a great conversation with Jeff on or off the field, you made his list.
“I guess the bottom line is a ton of things have changed since I started 10 years ago coaching in Utah for the better,” said Brzoska. “I’m really excited to see the next wave of coaches come from the college ranks and give back to the game that gave them so much like Josh Stout, Steele Headden, Garrett Bullett, Garrett Michaeli, and Bubba Fairman. In the next 10 years I can see huge growth in the high school and youth ranks. With all the excitement around Utah, UVU, Utah State, and BYU I would not be surprised if we have 75 boys High School programs playing. I think if boys soccer shifts to the fall like in other states that growth could happen faster. Back east so many soccer players play lacrosse in the spring. I also think the more the football coaches around the state learn the game and appreciate it, the more they will push their players to play the sport in the off-season.”
Wherever lacrosse in Utah ends up in 10 years, I can promise Jeff will be there somewhere.
Utah Valley Making Strides
I checked in this week with UVU head coach Brian Barnhill about the Wolverines fall progress.
The Wolverines have a set of scrimmages lined up for this fall. On October 5 at 1:00pm, the Wolverines host Utah State. On October 12, UVU will be at the University of Utah round robin event, and on October 19, the Wolverines head to Las Vegas for scrimmages against Arizona, USC, and Northern Arizona.
The Wolverines have 28 new players this fall which brings the total to 52.
“The short of it is we have a good combination of transfers and freshmen joining our program,” said Barnhill. “We have a lot of returning talent while also bringing in some new players that are all capable of immediately contributing to the team.”
Each coach approaches the fall season differently and for the Wolverines, its purpose is to focus on mechanics, then consistency and then intensity.
“If we can be sound mechanically, it will lead to consistent play,” said Barnhill. “Once that happens, the player and by extension the team will have confidence in the player and his abilities on the field. Once we have this level of confidence in each other, the intensity of the team play will be a quality intensity – not a chaotic intensity. Our purpose in fall is to focus on these three areas (mechanics, consistency and intensity).
The Wolverines have added a familiar face as an assistant defensive coach in Colin Maxfield. Maxfield played at East, then Utah State then Southern Virginia University where he graduated with a liberal arts degree. Maxfield coached with the Knights last season before coming back to Utah to coach at UVU.
Follow the Wolverines on Instagram if you’re not already. The coming weeks will feature check ins with the Aggies, Cougars, Griffins, and Utes.
Wasatch Invitational Scheduled for October 12/13
The second annual Wasatch Invitation is scheduled for October 12 & 13 at Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City.
“We are holding this tournament to get exposure for Utah lacrosse and lacrosse players in Utah,” said Danny Larkin. “We know there is a lot of talent here, so we want to bring college coaches to Utah so they can see it for themselves. With Wasatch LC we have shown coaches from all over the country that Utah can play with some of the best competition in the country. Many players want to play college lacrosse but have no idea where to start looking.”

New York Specialty High School
Stuyvesant High School (pronounced t aɪ v ɪ s ən t /), commonly referred to as Stuy (pronounced), is a public magnet, college preparatory, specialized high school in New York, United States States. Operated by the New York City Department of Education, these specialized schools offer training-free accelerated scholars to city residents.
Stuyvesant was founded as a boys’ school in Manhattan’s East Village in 1904. Entrance exams have been compulsory for all applicants since 1934, and the school began accepting female students in 1969. Stuyvesant has moved to its current location in Battery Park City. in 1992 because the number of students became too large to be accommodated on the original campus. The old building now houses several secondary schools.
Admission to Stuyvesant involves passing an entrance exam to specialized secondary schools.Each March, 800 to 850 high-grade SHSAT applicants are admitted from the approximately 30,000 eight and ninth graders entering Stuyvesant. The school hosts many extracurricular activities, including the SING Theater Competition! and two student publications.
Stuyvesant is consistently ranked among the best schools in the country. According to the niche report, Stuyvesant High School is the # 1 public high school in New York State and # 6 of the US public high schools nationwide.Notable alumni include former US Attorney General Eric Holder, physicists Brian Green and Lisa Randall, chemist Roald Hoffmann, and genome researcher Eric Lander. Stuyvesant is one of six high schools in the world with four or more Nobel Prize winners.
New York City Schools Superintendent William Henry Maxwell first wrote about the need to build handicraft schools in New York City in 1887. At the time, CBJ Snyder designed many of the city’s school buildings using several architectural styles.The first trading school in the city was the Brooklyn Handicraft High School, which opened in 1893. By 1899, Maxwell was advocating for the creation of a manual school in Manhattan.
In January 1903, Maxwell and Snyder submitted a report to the New York City Board of Education proposing the creation of a trading school in Manhattan. The Board of Education approved the plans in April 1904. They proposed that the school occupy a site on East 15th Street, west of First Avenue.However, the site did not yet have a school building, and therefore the new vocational school was originally housed in the former PS 47 building at 225 East 23rd Street. The Board of Education also wrote that the new vocational school will be “designated Stuyvesant High School as it will resemble the area.” Stuyvesant Square, Stuyvesant Street, and then Stuyvesant Town (which was built in 1947) are all located close to the proposed 15th Street school building. All of these sites were named after Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch governor of New Zealand.The name was chosen to avoid confusion with the Brooklyn Handmade High School.
Opening and school for boys
Stuyvesant High School opened in September 1904 as Manhattan’s first manual school for boys. At the time of opening, the school had 155 students and 12 teachers.
Initially, the school provided for the basic curriculum “English, Latin, modern languages, history, mathematics, physics, chemistry, [and] music”, as well as a physical education program and a more specialized course “Woodworking, metalworking, mechanical drawing, [and ] freehand drawing “.However, in June 1908, Maxwell announced that the vocational school curriculum would be separated from the main curriculum, and a separate trading school would operate in the Stuyvesant building in the evening. After that, Stuyvesant became famous for his achievements in mathematics and natural sciences. In 1909, eighty percent of the school’s graduates were in college, compared with other schools that sent only 25-50% of graduates to college.
By 1919, officials began to restrict admission based on academic performance.Stuyvesant implemented a dual-class plan in 1919 to accommodate the growing student population: some students would attend classes in the morning, while others would attend classes in the afternoon and early evening. All students completed the full range of courses. These double occupations continued until the spring of 1957. In 1934, the school introduced a system of entrance examinations. The exam program, developed with the assistance of Columbia University, was expanded in 1938 to include the newly founded Bronx Graduate School of Science.
In 1956, a group of six students designed and began building a cyclotron. Six years later, a low-power device was tested. However, a later attempt to operate at full capacity resulted in power outages in the school and adjacent buildings.
In 1967, Alice de Rivera filed a lawsuit against the Board of Education, claiming that she was barred from taking the Stuyvesant entrance exam because of her gender.The lawsuit was decided in favor of the student, and Stuyvesant was obliged to accept the students. The first female students were accepted in September 1969 when Stuyvesant offered admission to 14 girls and enrolled 12 of them. The following year, 223 female students were admitted to Stuyvesant. By 2015, the last year that enrollment reports are available, women accounted for 43% of the total student population.
In 1972, the New York State Legislature passed the Hecht-Kalandra Act, under which Brooklyn Tech High School, Bronx Science High School, Stuyvesant High School, and Music and Art High School (now Fiorello H.LaGuardia) were called Specialized High Schools in New York City. The law required a single exam for admission to Brooklyn Tech, Bronx Science, and Stuyvesant. The exam, called the Specialized High School Entrance Test (SHSAT), tested the math and language skills of students entering any of the specialized high schools. The only exception was LaGuardia High School applicants, who were accepted for auditions, not examinations.
Attacks 11 September
The current school building is about 0.5 miles (0.8 km) from the site of the World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks. The school was evacuated during the attack. Although a cloud of smoke emanating from the World Trade Center enveloped the building at one point, there was no structural damage to the building and no reports of physical injury were reported. Less than an hour after the collapse of the second tower of the World Trade Center, concerns about a bomb threat at the school prompted an evacuation of the surrounding areas, as reported live on Today’s Show .When classes resumed on September 21, 2001, students were transferred to Brooklyn High Tech, with the Stuyvesant building serving as a base for rescue and recovery operations. This caused serious overload at Brooklyn Institute of Technology and required students to be present on two shifts, while Stuyvesant students came on the evening shift. Normal activities resumed nearly a month after the attack on 9 October.
Because Stuyvesant was so close to the World Trade Center grounds, concerns arose about exposure to asbestos.At the time, the US Environmental Protection Agency indicated that Stuyvesant was protected from asbestos and carried out a thorough cleaning of the Stuyvesant building. However, the Stuyvesant High School Parents’ Association disputed the accuracy of the assessment. Several issues were reported, including respiratory problems for former teacher Mark Bodenheimer, who agreed to transfer to the Bronx Graduate School of Science after having difficulty continuing his work at Stuyvesant. Other isolated cases include 2002 Stuyvesant class president Amit Friedlander, who received local press coverage in September 2006 after being diagnosed with cancer.While there have been other incidents involving the same dust cloud that originated from Ground Zero, there is no conclusive evidence that such incidents directly affected the Stuyvesant community. However, Stuyvesant students spent a full year in the building before the theater and ventilation systems were cleaned up, and as a result, since 2006, a group of Stuyvesant alumni have lobbied for health benefits. In 2019, during a re-authorization hearing for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, graduate Leela Nordstrom testified before the House Judiciary Committee about conditions in Stuyvesant after 9/11.
Nine alumni were killed in the attack on the World Trade Center. Another alumnus, Richard Ben-Veniste of the 1960 class, served on the 9/11 Commission. On October 2, 2001, school newspaper Spectator created a special 24-page full-color September 11 insert containing student photos, reflections and stories. On November 20, 2001, the magazine was distributed free of charge throughout the metropolis, enclosed in 830,000 copies New York Times .A few months after the attacks, Annie Thoms, an English teacher in Stuyvesant and a theater arts adviser at the time, invited students to take into account the reactions of staff and students during and after September 11, 2001, and turn them into a series of monologues. Thoms then published these monologues, titled “ Through Their Eyes: September 11 – View from High School to Ground Zero” .
In the academic year 2003-2004, Stuyvesant celebrated its 100th anniversary with a full year of operations.Activities included a march from 15th Street to Chambers Street, a meeting of the National Consortium of Specialized High Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology, a meeting of representatives from all classes, and visits and speeches by famous alumni.
In the 21st century, the keynote speakers of graduation programs were Attorney General Eric Holder (2001), Former President Bill Clinton (2002), UN Secretary General Kofi Annan (2004), Comedian “ Late Night” Conan O ‘ Brian (2006 g.), “ People of New Zealand”. Founder York Brandon Stanton (2015) and astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson (2018).
15th Street, Building
Postcard depicting the building on Stuyvesant 15th Street, now known as the Old Stuyvesant campus.
In August 1904, the Board of Education commissioned Snyder to design a new building for Stuyvesant High School on 15th Street. The new school will be shaped like an “H” to maximize the number of windows in the building.The cornerstone of the new building was laid in September 1905. About $ 1.5 million was spent on the construction of the school, including $ 600,000 just for the exterior. In 1907, Stuyvesant moved to a new building on 15th Street. The new building accommodated 2,600 students, more than double the number of the existing school building on 23rd Street. It contained 25 classrooms dedicated to skilled industrial trades such as carpentry, as well as 53 ordinary classrooms and a 1,600-seat auditorium.
The Old Stuyvesant campus on East 15th Street, as seen in 2021
In the 1950s, the building underwent a $ 2 million refurbishment that included classrooms, shops, libraries and cafeterias.
During the 1970s and 1980s, when New York City’s public schools were generally violent and poorly graded, Stuyvesant had a reputation for being a first-class school. However, the school building fell into disrepair due to overexploitation and lack of maintenance.New York Times report said the building “stood up to old age with minimal maintenance and harmless neglect, until its peeling paint, creaking floorboards and outdated laboratories became a disgrace.” The five-story building cannot adequately meet the several thousand students heading to the New York City Council of Education to make plans to move to a school in a new building in Battery Park City, near lower Manhattan’s Financial District. The 15th Street building is still used as the “Old Stuyvesant Campus,” which houses three schools: the Coeducational Institute, the Graduate School of Medical Professions and Social Services, and PS 226.
In 1987, New York City Mayor Ed Koch and New York State Governor Mario Cuomo jointly announced the construction of a new Stuyvesant High School building in Battery Park City. The Park Battery City Authority donated 1.5 acres (0.61 ha) of land for the new building. The authorities were not required to hire the lowest bidder, which meant that the construction process could be accelerated at higher costs. The building was designed by the architectural firms Gruzen Samton Steinglass and Cooper, Robertson & Partners.The building’s chief architect Alexander Cooper of Cooper, Robertson & Partners also designed much of Battery Park City.
The new building ( left ) as viewed from the corner of Chambers and West Streets. The Tribeca Bridge ( on the right ) is used as one of the entrances to the building.
At the time, Stuyvesant’s director, Abraham Baumel, visited the country’s most modern laboratories to gather ideas for what to include in the 12 laboratory rooms of the new Stuyvesant building.The new 10-story building also included rows of escalators, glass-walled rooftop studios and a four-story north wing with a swimming pool, five gyms and an auditorium. Construction began in 1989. When it opened in 1992, it was New York City’s first new high school building in ten years. Stuyvesant’s new campus cost $ 150 million, making it the most expensive high school ever built in the city at the time. The library holds 40,000 volumes and overlooks Battery Park City.
Shortly after completion, the $ 10 million Tribeca Bridge was built to allow students to enter the building without crossing busy West Street. The building was designed under the Americans with Disabilities Act and is listed by the New York City Department of Education. As a result, the building is one of 5 additional sites for P721M, a school for students with multiple disabilities aged 15 to 21.
In 1997, the east end of the math floor was dedicated to Richard Rothenberg, head of the math department, who died of a sudden heart attack earlier that year. The sculptor Madeleine Segall-Marx was commissioned to create a Rotenberg memorial in his honor. She created a mathematical wall called Celebration, consisting of 50 wooden boxes – one for each year of his life – behind a glass wall, with mathematical concepts and reflections on Rothenberg.
In 2006, Robert Ira Levy of the 1960 class made a $ 1 million gift to found the Dr. Robert Ira Levy Multimedia Center.and donated his personal library in 2007. In late 2010, the school library merged with the New York City Public Libraries Network (NYPL) for a four-year pilot program in which all students in the school received student library tickets so that they could check books from the school library or any other NYPL public library.
An escalator collapse at Stuyvesant High School on September 13, 2018, injured 10 people, including 8 students.
During construction, Battery Park City, NYC Artistic Program Percentage, Department of Cultural Affairs, and NYC Board of Education ordered Mnemonic , a work by community artists Christine Jones and Andrew Ginsel. Four hundred hollow glass blocks were scattered randomly from the basement to the tenth floor of the new Stuyvesant High School building. Each block contains relics that testify to the geographical, natural, cultural and social worlds from antiquity to the present day.
Blocks are inserted into the corridor walls and are scattered throughout the building. Each block is provided with a brief description of its content or context. Items on display include a portion of the Great Wall of China, fragments of the Mayan pyramids, leaves of the sacred Bo tree, water from the Nile and Ganges rivers, the Revolutionary War button, fragments of a building on Stuyvesant 15th Street, report card. a student who studied in the old building, and fragments of monuments from around the world, various chemical compounds and memorabilia from each of the 88-year-old stories of the 15th Street building.Blank blocks were also installed to fill with the subjects selected by each of the graduates until 2080. The installation received an Outstanding Achievement Design Award from the New York City Arts Commission.
New York City’s S subway station, Chambers Street, served by 1, 2, and 3 trains, is nearby, and Chambers Street World Mall station is served by A, C and E trains. In addition, New York City’s bus M9, M20, and M22 lines stop near Stuyvesant.Students living within a specified distance from the school are provided with full or half-fare student metrocards at the beginning of each semester for public transportation, depending on how far from the school the student lives.
Stuyvesant has over 3,000 students and is open to New Yorkers entering ninth or tenth grade. Enrollment is based solely on performance in the three-hour Specialized High School Entrance Exam, which is held annually.Approximately 28,000 students passed the test in 2017. The list of schools using SHSAT has since expanded to include eight of New York City’s nine specialized high schools. The test scores required for admission to Stuyvesant have always been higher than the scores required for admission to other schools using this test. Admission is currently based on an individual exam score and a pre-submitted Stuyvesant ranking among other specialized schools. Ninth and junior tenth graders are also eligible to take the school enrollment test, but far fewer students do so.The test covers math (word problems and calculations) and verbal (reading comprehension) skills. Former Mayor John Lindsay and the community activist group the Association of Civil Society Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) argued that the exam could be biased against African Americans and Hispanics, while attempts to cancel the exam have been criticized as discriminating against Asian Americans.

Demographics and perceived discrimination
Students in Stuyvesant were predominantly Jewish for most of the 20th century. A significant influx of Asian students began in the 1970s; By 2019, 74% of the students attended were Asian American (53% from low-income families). In the 2013 academic year, the student body was 72.43% Asians, 21.44% Caucasians, 1.03% African Americans, 2.34% Hispanics, and 3% unknown / others. The shortage of black and Hispanic students at Stuyvesant has often been a problem for some city administrations.In 1971, Mayor John Lindsay argued that the test was biased against black and Hispanic students and sought to implement an affirmative action program. However, the parents’ protests forced them to abandon this plan and led to the adoption of the Hecht-Kalandra Law, which retained admission only for exams. A small number of students who were deemed economically disadvantaged and who scored a few points below the threshold were given an additional opportunity to take the test.
In 1996, the public activist group ACORN published two reports: “ Secret Apartheid” and “ Secret Apartheid II” . In these reports, ACORN called SHSAT a “perennial suspect” and described it as a “product of institutional racism,” stating that black and Hispanic students did not have access to proper exam preparation materials. Together with School Chancellor Rudy Crew, they launched an initiative to increase diversity in the city’s gifted and specialty schools, in particular by demanding a complete suspension of SHSAT until the Board of Education can show that all children have access to appropriate self-study materials…. The students published several editorials in response to ACORN statements, stating that the school’s admission system is based on student merit, not race.
Some students take preparatory courses offered by private companies such as Princeton Review and Kaplan to do better on the SHSAT exam, often leaving those who cannot afford such classes at a disadvantage. To bridge this gap and increase enrollment for minority students, in 1995 the Board of Education established the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, a free program to prepare students for admissions tests.Students attend kindergarten through a program now known as the Specialized High School Institute (also known as DREAM) at several schools in the city from the summer after sixth grade to the eighth grade exam. Despite the implementation of these free programs to increase school enrollment for children from low-income families, the enrollment of blacks and Hispanics continued to decline. After further expansion of these free test preparation programs, the attendance rate for black and Hispanic children has not yet increased.As of 2019, less than 1% of freshman vacancies were for black students, while over 66% were for Asian American students, most of whom were from the same socioeconomic backgrounds as their classmates from other races.
In 2003, the New York City Department of Education reported that spending per student in Stuyvesant was slightly lower than the city average. Stuyvesant also receives private donations.
Stuyvesant’s college preparatory program primarily includes four years of study in English, history and laboratory science. Science courses include compulsory lessons in biology, chemistry, and physics. Students also study mathematics for four years. Students also study three years of one foreign language; a semester of introductory arts, music, health and technical painting; one semester of computer science; and two laboratory technology courses.For seniors, there are a few exceptions to technology education. Stuyvesant offers students a wide variety of elective courses. Some of the more notable offerings include astronomy, New York history, women’s voices, and the mathematics of financial markets. Most students complete New York City Regents courses in their junior years and study mathematics in high school. However, the school offers courses in mathematics using differential equations for more advanced students.It used to take a year of technical drawing; students learned to draw by hand in the first semester and how to draw on a computer in the second. Students now take a one-semester abridged version of the previous drafting course, as well as a semester of introductory computer science course. In the 2015 class, the one-semester computer science course was replaced by a two-semester course.

As a specialized high school, Stuyvesant offers a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses.These courses focus on mathematics, science, history, English or foreign languages. This gives students a variety of options for obtaining college loans.

Cover of May issue The Voice 1977
Golos was founded in the 1973-1974 school year as an independent publication with only minor sanctions from the school authorities.It looked like a magazine and acquired a large readership. Voice sparked significant controversy and a First Amendment lawsuit, after which the administration forced him to leave campus and go into business in 1975-1976.
Early in the 1975-1976 school year Golos decided to publish the results of a confidential random survey measuring students’ ‘sexual attitudes, preferences, knowledge and experience’. The administration refused to allow Golos to distribute the questionnaire, and the Board of Education refused to intervene, believing that some students who received it would suffer “irreparable psychological harm.”Chief Editor The Voice Jeff Trachtman appealed the decision to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York before Judge Constance Baker Motley.
Motley, drawing on the relatively recent Supreme Court case Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District (ruling that “undifferentiated fear or fear of unrest is not enough to overcome the right to freedom of expression”) ordered the Board of Education to come to an agreement , allowing to disseminate the survey among juniors and seniors.However, Motley’s decision was overturned following an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Judge J. Edward Lumbard, joined by Judge Murray Gurfein and due to the vehement opposition of Judge Walter R. Mansfield, ruled that distribution of the questionnaires was appropriately prohibited by the administration, as there is reason to believe that it could “cause significant emotional damage to a number of students from the entire Stuyvesant population. ”The Supreme Court refused to check Certiorari.
SING V program, 1977
SING Annual Theater Competition! pits high school, junior and sophomore (freshmen and sophomores working together) against each other in a competition for the best performance. SING! began in 1947 at Midwood High School in Brooklyn and has since expanded to many high schools in New York City. SING! in Stuyvesant started as a small event in 1973 and has since grown into a school-wide event; in 2005 about 1000 students took part in it.The entire production is written, directed, produced and funded by students. Their participation ranges from acting, choirs, costume and technical crews to dance groups Step, Hip-Hop, Swing, Modern, Belly, Flow, Tap or Latin American dance. SING! starts from late January to February and ends with closing performances at three evenings in March / April. Scoring is done for performances every night and the winner is determined by the total.
Stuyvesant has produced many distinguished alumni, including four Nobel laureates.In 2017, Stuyvesant was ranked 71st in US News & World Report National Ranking and 21st among STEM High Schools. According to the September 2002 High School Rankings published by Worth , 3.67% of Stuyvesant students went on to study at Harvard, Princeton, and Yale, ranking 9th in the U.S. public high school rankings and 120th overall. schools, public and others. private. In December 2007, Wall Street Journal studied freshman grades at eight select colleges and reported that Stuyvesant sent 67 students to those schools, which is 9.9% of 674 high school students.
Stuyvesant, along with other similar schools, was regularly dropped from Newsweek’s ‘ annual list of the 100 best public high schools. In the May 8, 2008 issue, the reason is stated “because many of their students score much higher in SAT and ACT.” However, US News & World Report included Stuyvesant on its December 2009 Best High Schools list and was ranked 31st. In its 2010 progress report, the New York City Department of Education gave it the highest ‘A’ grade.
Stuyvesant has contributed to the education of several Nobel laureates, Fields Medal winners and other successful alumni. In recent years, he has ranked second in the number of semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship after Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia. From 2002 to 2010, Stuyvesant produced 103 semifinalists and 13 finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search, the second-highest of all high schools in the United States after the Bronx Graduate School of Science.In 2014, Stuyvesant had 11 semifinalists on Intel Search, the highest among US schools.
In the 2010s, examination schools, including Stuyvesant, became the subject of research that questioned their effectiveness. A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Duke University economists compared two groups of SHSAT participants whose scores differed by only a few points. One group of students was not admitted to Stuyvesant because they answered several questions incorrectly.In contrast, another group consisted of Stuyvesant students who had the minimum number of correct test answers required for an offer of admission. These economists found that there was no discernible difference in the average SAT and AP scores for the two groups, and there was much overlap in the colleges to which both groups were admitted.
Stuyvesant alumni include notable scientists: mathematicians
Bertram Costant (1945) and
Paul Cohen (1950), string theorist Brian Green (1980), physicist Lisa Randall (1980) and genomic researcher Eric Lander (1974).Other notable alumni include civil rights leader Bob Moses, editor of MAD magazine Nick Meglin (1953), artists such as Thelonious Monk (1935), and actors Lucy Liu (1986), Tim Robbins (1976) and James Cagney (1918) ), comedian.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt taught English at Stuyvesant prior to publishing his memoirs Angel Ashes , Tis , and Human Teacher . Teacher Man ‘s third section, entitled Lived in Room 205 , deals with McCourt’s time at Stuyvesant, and mentions a number of students and teachers. Former New York City Councilor Eva Moskowitz (born 1982)) graduated from high school, as did the creator of the BitTorrent protocol, Bram Cohen (1993). A notable Olympic medalist of the school was the foil fencer Albert Axelrod. Economist Thomas Sowell also attended Stuyvesant High School, but dropped out at 17 due to financial difficulties and problems at home.
