Meet SOF Students

Isobel-ConnellyIsobel Connelly

Alum, Class of 2014

“SOF is unlike any other school out there. The learning environment makes it possible for the student to reach their full potential by pushing them to do their best but also offering support when needed. The school is very small, which some may not like, but with a smaller community the grade can become a family, something that is usually an impossibility in new york city high schools. At SOF this is a wonderful reality.”

“What I like about SOF is how every project we do is fun and it makes you want to come back to school as fast as possible when you leave the main doors. I really like making information books, especially when it’s a topic I love.”

Class of 2019

“My school day is not predictable because even though my schedule is the same and I know what subject comes next, things never happen the same way; sometimes things are too easy and I’m like: “Wow! Am I being pranked or did something happen to my teachers?” So my school day is never the same at all.”

“My advice to current SOF students is to not take their education for granted. Through the exhibition and internship requirements, SOF provides a unique opportunity for students to research and engage in subject areas that are of particular interest to them. Students should take full advantage of these opportunities to begin shaping their futures!”

Class of 2020

“What makes SOF so different from other schools is that it’s my second home. I know that sounds cheesy, but its true. At other schools, all you do is wake up, go to school, and leave. But, at SOF you learn, and you have fun, and its fun to learn. It’s a better experience. They make you want to go to school.”

Vilmarys PichardoVilmarys Pichardo

Alum, Class of 2006

“SOF helped me embrace my creative self and develop intellectual curiosity. It taught me to be outspoken. With the help of my teachers and mentors at SOF, I became more confident in my potential and, year by year, was encouraged to evaluate myself as a student and recognize opportunities for academic growth. Such guidance and encouragement allowed me to take on goals that may have seemed too big or unreachable and has also pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone whenever possible.”
