Big Apple College Information

The college fair offers attendees the opportunity to speak with over 200 college admissions representatives from not only New York State, but from as far away as California, Canada, and England to name a few. This opportunity is free to attendees. In addition, the Big Apple offers a raffle for all high school seniors to enter. Ten lucky students drawn will get a $2500 scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded every year of their four years of college as long as they hold a 3.0 GPA.

Water Safety

New York City water is safe. Families of students attending Department of Education (DOE) schools and staff of those schools should rest assured that our drinking water is of the highest quality in the world. New York City’s water meets or exceeds all Federal and State standards. The City’s water is tested over 500,000 times each year. In addition, the DOE works with other City agencies to make sure our students have safe drinking water in schools. There has never been a known case of lead poisoning due to water in New York City schools. The safety and well-being of students and staff is our highest priority.

Secondary School Teachers Trade Vacation for Stem Cell Research at Columbia

Arlene Ramos has dedicated the past 2 summers participating in a STEM Research Program offered through Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Ms. Ramos is a dedicated science teacher who consistently seeks professional development opportunities to further promote student growth and academic achievement. Arlene Ramos, who teaches at the High School for Health Professions & Human Services in Manhattan, says the program gave her confidence to flourish in her career. “Through the program I’ve learned about other opportunities to enhance my teaching,” says Ramos, who conducted research on Alzheimer’s disease in the lab of Ottavio Arancio, MD, PhD. “I got accepted into and attended the Math for America Program and Columbia University Zuckerman Institute Brain Insight Teacher Scholar Program."
