Bridging the Gap

Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Stuyvesant Student Union! The SU is the student government of Stuyvesant High School, and we aim to bridge the gap between students, faculty, and administration. In doing so, we hope to foster a strong sense of community and improve the experience of every student at Stuyvesant.

On our website, you can learn about some of the projects we're working on, access some academic resources (including textbooks), and contact us with questions and concerns. We also encourage you to follow us on our social media accounts for the most up to date information!
