Hello Baruch College Campus High School! I believe that I would be a great member of the Baruch High School community.

We are committed to creating an environment that provides a place for students to develop high level thinking skills, meet performance standards that are above the minimum requirements set by the city and the state and develop civic and social skills which will lead them to become socially conscious, responsible citizens.
